Destroy thy Neighbor! A gate to another dimension has burst open, and invincible monsters called Neighbors invade Earth. Osamu Mikumo may not be the best among the elite warriors who co-opt other-dimensional technology to fight back, but along with his Neighbor friend Yuma, he’ll do whatever it takes to defend life on Earth as we know it.

Upstanding Osamu always does the right thing, whether it means pitching in to save Earth after school or turning the other cheek to bullies. But when he meets a feisty humanoid Neighbor named Yuma, everything that he thinks is right is turned on its head. Can the two natural enemies ever become friends?

An excellent start to a manga series. World Trigger doesn't necessarily hook you. Yet, what the series lacks in profit market appeal, it makes up for in a world with characters that reflect what life is really like outside our books, movies and music. Will power and a hidden talent do not drive a character's progression forward, as is quite popular in shounen manga. Everyone has believable limitations, works hard to advance, and even then encounter their own limitations against time, circumstance, and their own capacities. In fact, all the characters are mild-mannered compared to the exaggeratedly outgoing, loud, and dramatic characters of many shounen manga. They feel more like every day people.

People may not die while using trion bodies--substitute bodies without blood, if you will. However, the world of World Trigger and its characters show a respect and grave understanding when trion technology is pointed on real bodies. It's like a representation of mature people who know the difference between firing a gun in a video game and firing one in real life at a person.

When I have kids I would want them to learn from World Trigger's characters.
