「ボーダーという組織」 (Bouda Toyuu Soshiki)
“The Organisation Known as Border”

Everything is coming together nicely in World Trigger, and even if its production quality is not on the same level as other anime airing right now, it certainly deserves more attention than it’s getting.

「実力派エリート・迅悠一」(Jitsuryoku ha Erito・Jin Yuuichi)
“Power Elite・Jin Yuuichi”

This felt like the World Trigger that I love so much. I think I’d have to put that down to two things. One is us meeting the top dogs of the Border agency, and the other is that we’re finally moving into the direction that the series will take from here on out.
