What’s The Plot of World Trigger?

World Trigger follows the events of Mikado City after a mysterious gate appears right outside the city. Suddenly, several monsters or “Neighbors” start emerging from the gate, overwhelming the entire human population.

Humans try their best to defend themselves against these monsters, but sadly, regular firearms turn ineffective against the enemy. However, an organization called Defense Agency, or “Border,” appears and defends everyone by attacking “Neighbors.” Apparently, this organization uses the enemy’s technology to use their inner energy, called ‘Trion,’ as weapons.
