World Trigger Season 3 will continue following Tamakoma Second. They will face off against stronger and stronger enemies in the B-Rank Rank Battles Arc. The new key visual for 3rd Season features team ace Yuma Kuga and Hyuse, who joined Tamakoma Second at the end of Season 2.

The key visual most notably has Yuma using his Spider Wire, and Hyuse using his Bagworm, back to back. Showcasing that in Season 3, the former enemies will fight together for the first time.

Morio Hatano: “The staff has been working relentlessly to reflect the charisma of World Trigger, its young protagonists’ emotions, their elaborate strategies, and how they each grow as a person as they fight through battle after battle. I believe Season 3 will surpass the expectations of World Trigger fans. To the point that you’ll want to rewatch the episodes over and over. Please keep supporting us.”
