If you’ve followed anime news last weekend, you’ve heard of AnimeJapan 2021, held from March 27-28, the biggest anime event in Japan when it comes to news and announcements – and we most notably got a release date for World Trigger season 3, alongside some story spoilers we translated.

World Trigger Season 3 was first announced back at Jump Festa 2021, held in December 2020. Now, at AnimeJapan 2021, an actual release date for the season was announced.

World Trigger season 3 release date

World Trigger season 3 will start airing in October 2021 in Japan, on TV Asahi. Simulcast sites around the world will be streaming the TV anime at the same time. Crunchyroll simulcasted season 2 so it’s likely to be the simulcast service that will handle season 3 too.

According to the info revealed at AnimeJapan 2021, which we translated, Season 3 will feature Osamu Mikumo and his B rank team Tamakoma Second facing even stronger adversaries, participating in further rank battles.

Some work in progress screenshots of Season 3 were shared as well:

Judging from which manga chapters are being adapted now, and together with these story hints, and what’s stated in the tweet above, we’re getting the second part of the B Rank battles getting adapted in World Trigger season 3. In other words, this means the B-Rank Rank Battles Arc will be ongoing.

Started in 2013, World Trigger was originally a manga series published in Weekly Shonen Jump, written and illustrated by the mangaka Daisuke Ashihara. The story is loosely based on Trigger keeper, a one shot Ashihara published back in 2009.

The first season of World Trigger was 73 episodes long, aired from October 2014 to April 2016. it’ll all available on Crunchyroll legally. The second season was part of the Winter 2021 anime season and is ending in a few days.

While World Trigger never became huge like some of its contemporaries in Shonen Jump such as Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, the series still managed to outshine others and get a sizable following, hence why season 3 is happening. World Trigger was also switched from weekly to monthly publication in December 2018. Which garnered deeper character and story developments characteristic of monthly manga compared to weekly. Viz and Mangaplus publish the manga in English.
