    One thought on “World Trigger, Vol. 5”

    1. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/World Trigger 5 continues to defy expectations as author Ashihara cleverly puts Osamu in situations where he will unexpectedly excel, Yuma will underhandedly conquer, and Chika will surprise. Volume 5 does feel a bit like filler episodes, however, as our intrepid heroes enter training to begin their movement toward A-rank status. Not a lot happens until the end and then we're set up for a big cliff hanger.Story: Osamu's team is findi [...]

    2. Kazama, the captain of the #3 A team wants to fight Osamu to test his strength and discover the meaning behind Jin protecting Yuma, Osamu and Chika by giving up his black trigger. While Osamu is completely outmatched he manages to use his head and think of other possibilities in order to pull out a draw in the final attempt. There seems to be a lot of foreshadowing that shows up with Jin's "side effect" but the full details have yet to be revealed. This was another exciting volume with even bigg [...]

    3. This was a book of duels then it suddenly escalated to an invasion. I also see why I was confusing Miwa and Kazama, their hair has gotten more similar as the volumes progress and Kazama took Miwa's place in standing by the director in meetings once he came back from the Neighborhood so that probably confused me, too. I thought I was getting on top of character identification, but then I took a long time to finish this one and the things I knew from the first volumes have trickled out of my mind

    4. One of the things I most admire about this series is the way Ashihara is able to create a violent, desperate story without actually putting the characters at risk of real physical harm. It's a great way to circumvent parental/librarian objections to a middle grade series.

    5. This is a big improvement over volume 4, though I'm not sure how much longer they can drag out the training arc. At least the next volume looks like it'll be a combat arc at last, even if the characters aren't all trained yet.

    6. Mikumo's first shining moment of the series for me. Chika being adorably badass as usual. And a great setup into the next arc which I have been highly anticipating.
