A gate to another dimension has burst open, and from it emerge gigantic invincible creatures that threaten all of humanity. Earth's only defense is a mysterious group of warriors who have co-opted the alien technology in order to fight back!
I think episode 1 was decent, all things considered. I feared worse from Toei. Sure, everything reeks of a budget production, but at least they didn't mess up big time and the character interaction and voice acting seemed well done. The animation of that short Yuuma fight was also pretty nice, so I guess they at least CAN make it look good if they care to.
One thing really bothered me though... what was up with that romantic music in some of the scenes between Osamu and Yuuma? oO
A friend of mine (a yaoi-fangirl) almost pissed herself laughing at that point. xD
I guess it was supposed to underline Osamu's kindness, but still... a bit too much, imo.

Wow!! the site's design looks awesome now: www.worldtrigger.info
I loved the episode, though its clear they cut corners in some areas of animation which was within expectations. Op was awesome and loved the voice cast, comedy, and action scenes.
As someone who has never read the manga, the anime don't give me the urge to read it. And I think this is the biggest flaw of that adaptation, it'll not urge the average manga reader to buy and read the World Trigger manga.
I'll still read the manga at some point, but it will not be thanks to the anime.
Hi does anyone know how long the anime will be, 12 eps, 24, eps or long running. Someone told me that it seems like it will be a long running anime, just wanna know if that's been confirmed?
Going from the characters shown in the opening I'd assume it to be at least 24 episodes. Everything else depends on it's success I'd say.
I really hope that they used a bit more effort in the later episodes compared to the first one... ~w~
Since it seems to targeted towards kids, do you think we should expect censorship?
Well even though Toei is still being Toei, I'm gonna keep watching. I like that they're being faithful to the Manga, while adding scenes that only help the story move along better. Like Toru Narasaka from Miwa squad bringing in the bullies for "protection", or showing Chika earlier in the story so she's not a complete stranger when she's introduced. Though I wonder why her name keeps showing up as "Amatani" in the subs, when it's supposed to be Amatori..
Anyways the only thing that still worries me is potential censorship, they wouldn't even show Yuma break the guy's leg or him getting hit by the car. Guess we'll see next week when Osamu's battle with Marmods is shown. Overall as a fan of World Trigger I'll try to overlook Toei's animation.
Oftentimes, crunchyroll will alter names later on, I remember in Haikyuu a few names, as well in Magi with Magnoshuttat...both eventually corrected.
