Hello darkness my old friend
Cover and LC next week.
World Trigger Chapter 144
Hello darkness my old friend
Is that fucking Godzilla trion soldier?
So the spoiler was true. Hana's hands are brutal.
Dang, so were those spoilers from the last thread legit?
Yes they are
The chapter is all Katori flashback according to the spoiler. As predicted, we will have to wait for the cover next week for the end of the rank war round 5.
So who is piercing the door here ?
So strange trion soldier. He is going to rape her.
This is pretty sad. Wonder how they react if they find out about yuma.
Yuma is the son from a person of the human side, that was also a founder of Border, so that should help a little.
Spite and hatred like this wont go away no matter who it is. I mean look at Miwa.
With the non-stop, pop pop and stainless steel.
I'm hoping they get through this flashback quickly. I'm not terribly interested in Katori's backstory.
Going to sleep when old thread is archived
Waking up to spoilers
Life couldn'T be better sometimes.
This means that Katori will get some points somehow?
Its either a Bander (4-legged laser shooting type) or Bamster (really big 4-legged capture type).
I've been meaning to ask this, but are we even sure that Yuma is half neighbor? For all we know Yugo married another kidnapped human.
Are we sure that Yuma is half neighbour
For all we know his dad could have a wife that died while giving birth and his dad unwilling to stay on this shitty world left it.
Someone please tell me the chapter ends with Katori getting BTFO. This isn't a straight falshback chapter, right?
Judging by google translate, Hana's parents got sick of her spending time playing games with Katori instead of studying, and demanded she spend more time studying. Katori's solution was to cut a hole for a new window in the wall of her room across from Hana's window so they could still talk.
Hilarious ! That does give some insight on the "I'm sorry, Yoko" of last week.
Mucho Thanks as always !
Acting like you are the main character
Ashihara going to break the 4th wall now?
More like she is too much into games
The fingernails on Somei's hand that she is using to hold onto Katori is peeled off with wounds everywhere.
This might be the first WT chapter i won't like.
Stuff getting ripped and torn apart? Sure no probelm
Finger/toe nails getting ripped off? Fuck no.
The chapter ends with Katori trying to usurp the role of MC
Hana did nothing wrong.
She did in fact (kind of). If she really wants to allow Katori to realise her ambition, she needs to kick her ass one glorious time.
My grades are pretty good even if I don't study.
And I'm better than Hana at physical education and drawing and music.
Because I'm a genius.
Let's just be glad Sup Forums doesn't exist in the World Trigger universe, because Katori fits the profile of a Sup Forums addict perfectly.
I'm so much smarter than everyone else
I-i could do anything I wanted if I tried!
I just don't want to try. Trying is for normies.
Her baiting skills seem pretty weak though
Probably because she didn't lurk enough.
I used to think all four of Katori squad were childhood friends from how familiar they seemed with each other.
I'm curious to know how those two end up meeting Miura and Wakamura.
All this Hana backstory
Reminder that Hana is fairly terrible as an operator. she has the lowest parallel processing of any operator as well as below average mechanical operator, data analysis and total. She's only above the operators for Kakizaki squad, Chano squad and the operator for those mooks Yuma killed in the first match.
Don't worry, Hana has Yoko to carry her. She is a genius after all
Yeah, instead of talking to Osamu about motivations she should have just called him butthurt and rated his spider techniques at 0/10.
I bet you spec your points in defense, faggot
Everyone knows spider is baby's first trap trigger, so get some taste
Your performance out here is the worst thing I've seen all season
Trying to bait someone who already faced the power of mass media bashing
The only thing that's gonna happen is her producing even more salt.
I bet you can't even score shit
I bet anyone with the resemblance of skill could defeat you over a hundred times without one loss
I bet even a sick person that isn't able to move properly can beat you.
Too obvious. No-one (apart from newfags) falls for trolls that are obviously just trying to get you angry. If you want to get replies you need to be so incredibly wrong that people can't believe anyone would hold those beliefs while also being entirely sincere.
Hey Mikumo-san, you want to go on the away mission, right? Why are you wasting time with the rank wars? You know that qualification for the away mission is entirely separate from ranking?
B-ranks can go as well. Just fill out a form. They pick by lottery.
My house put up a better fight against a neighbor than you
I don't think Katori is that elegant though
Katori seems to be to much of a direct person for that aproach. Means she would need to go full retard till he falls for something. And then never stop with it.
Trying to bait someone who's had her and her teammates dancing to his obvious bait the entire time
Being baited so hard by a relative newfag
I'm not terribly interested in Katori's backstory.
Me neither. Narratively speaking it's a good place to put it, but personally I'd rather watch T2 strut their stuff now and learn about her backstory later.
Learning about it afterwards would be pretty shitty though, it could potentially spoil the good mood that came with T2's curbstomp
Sadpanda finally delivered some hetero WT
And its about the two best girls
Well looks like i gotta learn moon in the next days.
I love that fluffy hair
I think it's hurt by the fact that we just had Kakizaki's flashback so we are breaking up the momentum yet again. Which is a shame because I think I like Katori's more.
The sad thing is that the same artist has a couple of other WT doujins out that were never scanned.
What the fuck... well shit. Guess we'll forever be stuck with fucking yaoi.
The last one was with Konami and Tachikawa's operator.
When you don't live in moon country and can't speak or read it...
This, I would of preferred these flashbacks happening after the match was over
To be fair it would have been hard to do that.
It is better to do it while it helps understanding character motivation and how what is happening affects them.
It kind of feels like Ashihara was curious what a match with entirely trigger word induced flashbacks would be like. He never normally does flashbacks like this
That's just to end the match with the next chapter and the lead cover.
i need it
He could do the same thing he did with Nasu/Suzunari-1 and have the flashback's before the match, or just not have any flashbacks at all. Do we need a full chapter explaining Katori's relationship with her operator? Hell, Miwa's backstory was presented in a one panel flashback and one dialogue bubble.
Cover and LC next week
first few pages of the chapter in color
THE HYPE IS REAL
Honestly, putting it before the match would have been worse since so many people were craving T-2 after the Galopoula arc. And Miwa has gotten a quite a few chapter to fill out his character and probably more in the future. Hyuse joining Border might trigger him into a whole arc worth of flashbacks
whole arc of Miwa crying about Onee-chan
He's probably stalling a bit to finish the match next chapter, or at least have Katori defeated next chapter. Getting the cover and color page calls for doing something more actiony than mopping up the last enemy, or post battle stuff.
I think he's experimenting. Every match has been set up differently.
Suwa/Arafune: No flashbacks
Nasu/Kuruma: Flashbacks before the match (also includes backstory for Arafune)
Ninomiya/Kageura/Azuma: No flashbacks but we meet the aces and get a bit of backstory before the match
Kakikazi/Katori: Flashbacks in the middle of the battle
Maybe next round we won't get to see the battle at all, we'll just have ten chapters of flashback for their enemies then immediately cut to the results table.
immediately cut to the results table
I don't mind if there is a double page montage of everyone falling into Osamu's traps.
Ashihara drew emblems for other WSJ series? So fucking based.
Maybe next round we won't get to see the battle at all, we'll just have ten chapters of flashback for their enemies then immediately cut to the results table.
This happens to the Kageura match and we only get to hear how awesome Yuma vs. Kage was
Literally Katanagaris it
She still accurately predicted Kakizaki would help take down T-2 after their strategy was revealed. Numbers aren't everything user
He probably just thought the:
(Acting like you're the main character of all this...)
line wouldn't be as hard hitting unless it felt like Katori actually took control of the story away from T-2.
I actually don't know if the page numbering is correct.
A day in Katori life.
Is this the first time we are seeing the first invasion from a civilian point of view?
Then it turned out that Hana is just like Osamu, complete shit. Is this where Katori's cynical attitude comes from?
Katori thinks that she's the main character
Didn't fight even a single Neighbour during the large scale invasion
Katori, if you want to be the main character you need to be relevant in every arc. Murakami Ko is more of a main character than you are.
Katori ends up beating the final boss
Well I guess she was the main character after all
I think so. We haven't really gotten much detail on the first attack, just that it happened. We haven't really seen what happened during it. The closest I can think of off hand is Miwa's flashback, and I think that was a random neighbor attack later on.
Nah, she'd be the joke character that's broken if you grind them enough, not the main character.
loli Katori a cute, would play vidya all day with
I can't wait for the Border reactions when Hyuse joins T-2
Fuck I owe her so much but she's such a shit
Why did I make that promise
Whatever I don't care, I can half ass it until they get to my level.
Nah, she'd be the joke character that's broken if you grind them enough, not the main character.
Isn't that Yotaro?
Already? It's a miracle
Motivated, angry, embarassed, excited and a shitton more loli Katori
And i jizzed in my pants.
Thanks a ton user.
Ah man I thought something was gonna be up when Hana's trin levels in the BBF was 1.
Yotaro is the TG Cid
It's 2 actually. Just like Osamu
Katori is a lazy genius who's talented but doesn't like to work hard
Hana works hard because she's self motivated
They were affected by the first invasion 9just like everyone else in the city
What a waste of a chapter. This entire chapter could have been two pages long.
Nice backstory. But Osamus RAYGUST will fix her. Meeden is not some shounen world where sudden flashback/surge of emotions gives/unlocks you a secret power to overwhelm your opponent.
It's two actually.
Tamakoma's operator and Tachikawa's operator both have Trion 1.
No, but having main character status means you lose in this series. Katori was nice enough to take that burden from Osamu
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the BORDER, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on NEIGHBOURHOOD, and I have over 300 confirmed kills....
Oh my mistake, I mixed her stats up with Shirori's
Even more spider?
Finally I can rename it to TYPICAL DAY OF AGENT KATORI
300 confirmed kills
That actually pretty bad for Border. Fucking Osamu has 52 confirmed kills, 57 if you count Trion soldiers (Yuiga 48 times, Kazama, Suwa, Katori's mooks, a Bamster, a Marmod and three upgraded Rabbits)
Yuiga 48 times
He killed some mormods durning invasion, didn't he?
He killed Yuiga 48 times
I'm happy for her she got 1 reaction, feels bad the team leaving her hangin.
They fought 200 times, Osamu won 48 times.
I might be misremembering but I thought he only killed one.
He almost certainly killed some Marmods during his Marmod training, but they're not confirmed.
ahh right he won 48 out of their 200 matches
In due time, my anons.
Hana works hard because she's self motivated
It looks like her father forced her to work hard
No longer a day late
IT KEEPS HAPPENING
All thanks to best girl
So is Hana's family dead, kidnapped, or a mix of the two?
According to the spoiler translations she studies because she's got some weird philosophy about how the world changes and she doesn't want to blame her parents for not preparing her. No wonder Katori unit is doing so badly, they're led by incomprehensible crazy people.
I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be implied they were buried alive and Hana tried to dig them out. Which is of course why her hands were fucked up.
Well Somei wasn't wrong that the world was on the cusp of change. She was ready to adapt like she said and joined Border.
There's no need for more trip wires at this point so it's bondage time.
You can never trip Katori too many times
Hana's face when Katori's dad is trying to kiss her
This chapter is brutal in a lot of ways.
Well... T-2 is pretty much made from suicidal people.
Time for Katori to take down Osamu and Yuma. Osamu suffering is what makes the manga great
The flimsy house Katori always complained about is what saved her life
The flimsy teammates she always complains about save her life on the battlefield.
Wait... Hana and Katori backstory is literally manga tier. Childhood friends, Hana and Katori little brother having rooms "in front" of each other (even without window) etc.
If it wasn't for the invasion and strict parents I could see romance between Hana and brother while Katori is both jelly as fuck and happy.
And Katori parents seem to be based, while Hanas parents are typical strict father + timid mother. And the father looks like some high ranked guy from Border. Even if Border didn't exist then (officially).
The flimsy teammates she always complains about save her life on the battlefield.
They're both ded, Jim.
Osamu bin Mikumo executed them for the glory of Isl... ekhm... BORDER STATE
No the Osamu in her team is a jealous shit who can only talk shit and got wrecked 1v1 by fucking Osamu of all people.
They're both ded, Jim
Just like her house
Don't bully the Miwa.
Who am I kidding, it's really fucking entertaining
Hana's father is sort of a combo of Karasawa & Netsuki.
Typesetted scans are coming tomorrow. If you're waiting for it you can stop now.
Is it finally time for another round of Miwa shitposting?
Sorry if I'm being a total moron right now but Is that a receipt?
What a sorcery. On time WT spoiler thread.
There's a time for that?
Isn't it shitposting because time and place get ignored?
There's no such thing as well adjusted in a shonen, even one like World Trigger. All characters if they want to be characters have to have some degree of insanity to them
Loli Katori was cute. What happened?
It is, indeed.
Scanning 88 pages is going to be a bitch, though.
She grew into a slut.
You are a godsend user, bless you. I anxiously await when you finish scanning them
Katori is love, they should kick the glasses guy out and get someone useful and chill
time and place get ignored
Well, this isn't a Miwa-centric arc
eccentric is probably a better term to use
Katori playing Demon Souls?
DeS dosen't have a defense stat. Unless they are referring to resistance in which case Somei is correct
...That's one of the reasons.
But after learning in my own way i've learned that
Every few years, every few decades, the world goes through a massive change.
If i do everything as my parents told me to
The things i've learned might not come to be useful when I grow up.
To avoid being lost when I grow up
I'm trying to "learn with self-awareness" right now.
I hope that when I find out that what my parents taught me don't work anymore
That i don't blame it on them.
Somei's weird logic here reminds me of Osamu's weird logic in every conversation he's ever had. Will they ever interact? They could be a crazy and weirdly determined power couple.
Osamu makes sense though, even if it's not normally protagonist-y. "I want to be a good guy because it's a good thing to do and I want to do it" makes more sense than "I'm studying now so I can learn to learn self-awareness for when all the things I'm studying are useless."
Actually the only weird part about that is the self-awareness bit, learning how to learn is in and of itself a pretty normal thing.
eh, it's a flashback? I'm sad now.
She should get
That's too high a prize for her
I guess the self awareness bit is supposed to mean she takes note of all change and trends in the world.
I guess they died, but since they're listed here maybe they were kidnapped or injured pretty bad.
Considering Miwa's older sister is still listed, not being on the list means they were never around.
Haven't played DeS in forever but I know DaS does have a defense stat. But vigor > def
She's going to be really angry and probably wants to cut him or shoot him full of holes to vent after the match.
user, as long as WTfags aren't sick of it, every time is Miwa shitposting time.
user i'm glad you're so innocent and know nearly nothing about shitposting.
It's called shitposting because it is exactly that. Shitposting. Do it whenever you feel like it. Especially Miwa shitposting.
They have the same cold, detached way of looking at themselves, as if they're not emotionally invested in their own lives. Osamu's "I refuse to run away because if I run away I'm setting a precedent that running away is an acceptable thing to do" isn't a million miles from "I'm studying now because I'm trying to cultivate a mindset that will probably be useful in the future."
Not entirely. One of those is borderline if not absolutely insane. The other one is somewhat smart, if not fully thought through.
Maybe. I just figured her hands got like that digging Katori out, but that makes sense as well. Though that still doesn't answer the question of their current status. I'm guessing none of them are around given she's talking about getting a room at Border, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're all dead.
I kind of feel bad for her. Smart enough to recognize the sort of change Border represents and to try and get in early on it. Only to turn out to be nothing remarkable. Mediocre trion that keeps her from being an agent, and unremarkable parallel processing skills leaving her an average operator. Then she has a team that's unremarkable other than for it's increasing disfunctionality.
Four years passed, she grew up a bit, and discovered that you can't get to the top by half-assing it. Not knowing how to do anything but half ass things, she got depressed when she encountered the inevitable failure.
Wakamura was right about pretty much every problem he pointed out. He just sucks at fighting, sucks at coming up with plans, and sucks at motivating people.
They're both fine. Hana exaggerates a bit a about tge , but she's right that the ability to learn is more important than the actual information you acquire when you're a child. Osamu is right that the way you act creates habits that then go on to reinforce the way you act. They're not wrong, they're just dispassionate.
sucks at coming up with plans
I suppose he's decent. Given the information he had his plans were solid.
Osamu just had more informations and time.
Kakizaki already did that though
And some way or another they end up fucking, right?
JUST LIKE IN MY
Puberty happened and being surrounded by athletic Border dudes caused her sexual frustration to skyrocket.
play video games with her.
Would rather play vidya with Yuu.
Kakizaki tried to call upon MC status naturally with the power of nakama
Katori is trying to forcefully take it
Though that still doesn't answer the question of their current status.
Hana-chan's parents are.....
They were either critically injured or dead based on that, but considering we never see them I would assume the worst
You mean going into threads and mentioning how much the series sucks in an attempt to accumulate multiple reactions?
Now why would I want to do that
That's just idiotic.
No i mean true proper shitposting, that is actually on topic but leads to nothing constructive for the thread.
She grew up physically but not mentally
I'm really trying to imagine a series of events that would make this happen.
After much pushing from Hana, Yoko grudgingly asks T-2 to train with them
She gets an idea of how little Osamu thinks of himself and how earnestly she's working and it makes her even angrier
After practice, she asks for a word alone with Osamu in the empty Katori squad room/office
forces him down, basically hate-fueled sexual assault
as they're leaving (ruffled hair/clothes) kitora sees them as she's leaving from some meeting, gets flustered
I just realized how much I want T-2 to have regular interactions with another squad,
sexual or not.
TAKE THAT BACK.
She gets an idea of how little Osamu thinks of himself and how earnestly she's working
supposed to be
how earnestly he's working
The problem is "abducted" is also a possibility. They weren't all necessarily at home when the attack happened.
It seems I have a new yuri pairing to work with.
...why didn't you save your family before you rescued me?
...Because compared to my house's roof,
Katori's house's roof felt lighter...
I just chose the person more likely to have a chance to be rescued.
You don't need to worry too much about it Yoko.
Unless the neighbors dug them up to abduct them then yeah they are probably dead
Add some frustration from how good Hana and Osamu interact with each other.
And I can already see Katori catching Osamu by the collar and sitting at his lap as this happens, shittalking to him how he thinks he's "oh so special, muh friend got kidnapped" etc. etc. but Osamu still out-talks her and she just gets so frustrated, so salty she stops thinking. Like she screams basically millimetres from his face, so he obviously feels her body and gets a boner.
And that's how she starts punishing his RAYGUST.
That's why Hana wears gloves
That's a monumental fuck-up. It's supposed to be:
The fact that everything she learns now will become irrelevant later
How that was contracted into "tge" is beyond me.
Nothing happened. Yoko was always perfect
So looks like Katori might clean up her act after all this. I was wondering if she would. It kinda felt like Waka was considering moving on, after noting all the effort TK2 put into the match.
Damn, Hana's damage from the neighbors is brutal.
Osamu's approach as stated is rather extreme. Based on his actions though we know that he's not really as extreme as he describes, he compromises and falls short on various occasions. So it's not like he's robotically committed to his ideal, he just tries his best.
Hana's outlook is actually quite pragmatic, and I would say that objectively she has a very strong point.
It's not wrong to say that Osamu and Hana are abnormal, but what's unusual about them is that they would be looking so far to the future at such a young age. I think they're driven to think for themselves more because they both seem to come from high-pressure households.
Osamu's mom doesn't seem to be as high-strung as Somei's, though. She doesn't strike me as a tiger mom.
I don't think Somei's mom is the problem. It's her dad
Osamus mom still strikes me as the sort of mom who tries to force her son into things she thinks are good for him. It's just that she still listens.
The fact that she made a bento and stalked her husband until he eventually caved shows that she's definitely a determined person. I think she really would of gone at those reporters with that stick she was talking about
drawn before even the previous chapter
Some nips have great taste
Miwaposting is fun. It worries me how he had a pivotal role in the Afto invasion, since that and the future expedition set the flags of him not appearing much more for the rest of the manga
He also had a pivotal role in the first Galo invasion. He's popular so he will reoccur.
I'll post the newest BBF stuff translated to keep the thread lively
Trying to sleep
I hate insomnia sometimes, but if you want i can try to keep it alive till tomorrow.
though i suppose it would be better to just make a new thread if it's really necessary.
More like, nobody made a thread until there were spoilers. Which is a good thing, mind.
Nah, don't worry about it. If the thread dies, the thread dies
By the way thanks for the BFF stuff.
What's interesting is the implication that the top 3 squads are't exactly who is chosen to go on the expedition
you forgot tumblr sucks and you should change 540 to 1280
He's not that bad, actually. As far as stats are concerned he's pretty solidly in B-rank and their fundamental strategy is sound when they're in the mid-tier as they are. Problem is, he's been way on tilt this match and has been from the very beginning.
Their team comp and strategy also has issues when facing the top-tier teams like Nino, Azuma, and Kageura Squad who have legitimate A-rank aces while having supports who are basically low or mid-tier A-rank combatants themselves.
And there's unfortunately no way to overcome this gap without recruiting some more talent or getting gud.
Woops, I accidentally greentexted myself. Ignore that.
Yeah, assuming they can actually get into A-rank first, Tamakoma-2 are pretty prime candidates for selection. Chika is a Trion monster who, once she learns how to utilize her Side Effect and gets over her fear of shooting, is a huge force multiplier for the team.
And then there's Kuga who has experience fighting in the Neighborhood and has his own Black Trigger that he can use to combat them.
Katori squad isn't actually that bad. They stayed in top B-rank for a reason. They only need to work on certain thinks.
I think she's more overbearing than forceful. In theory Osamu can do whatever he wants, but if it's not the "right" thing in her eyes he'll never hear the end of it. Like how the moment he wakes up from a coma he's criticized for not being suave enough with Chika.
Why did sites like Tumblr and Twitter become popular for artists in the first place? Getting to see a full resolution picture on twitter is torture.
This seems to be a big part of the so called wall at the top. A-rank teams, and the top B-rankers, have teams where everyone is able to hold their own to at least some extent. Teams that rely entirely on an ace to carry the two supports just can't cope under real pressure. They crumble if they get separated or if the ace gets taken out. That's why Nasu quad, Suzunari-1 and Mikumo squad couldn't break into the big leagues despite having clearly A-rank aces.
You can see this in the Ninomiya/ Kageura/Azuma fight. Ninomiya and Kageura just wandered around the battlefield, entirely separate from their supports. The same thing is true of Mikumo squad but while the supports for Nino, Kage and Azuma were still capable on their own, Osamu and Chika folded almost the moment they were cornered.
Is there a single A-rank squad that doesn't have at least two point scorers? Fuyushima squad maybe?
Trappers like Fuyushima are god level support buffs though
you can just add orig for twitter but searching stuff can be a pain in the ass.
you should thank Chippo for bbf stuff.
I think a bigger factor than any of that is Hyuse, who knows the home terrain and would be an invaluable source of information if he cooperates. Of course, that's a big if regarding Hyuse's cooperation and whether Border officials will even trust him enough.
Fuyushima Squad works because it's got a fuckin' Touma on deck. As it turns out, giving one of the the most skilled Snipers in Border Trapper support and teleporting bullshit makes for a strong team.
Will do as soon as i got some sleep.
You wouldn't fuck a loli Katori
I like present anger seething Katori the best
You would fuck a katori no matter if loli or not
Corrected that for you.
Well, considering that out of all the rank wars T-2 has had so far, Katori is the only other B-rank captain to exchange words with Osamu. While I'm not saying this'll lead to any boning, it is more significant in leading to any interaction between them after the match, especially since she's currently extremely butthurt about both his mentality and their fight.
How long does the Rank War season last?
Each one last three months and then one month break
Jan break, Feb-Apr, May break, June-Aug, September break, Nov-Dec
Inba we get another season of Rank wars before T2 makes A-rank
I would laugh.
Nah, we will probably get one more match after this then do the A-Rank selection during the week break
It would still be fun.
For a lot of reasons.
WIth Hyuse on the team there won't be much more time for sports. He's got to go home and stop Hyrein Trump from becoming president.
MAKE AFTO GREAT AGAIN!
NO MEEDEN IMMIGRANTS!
The top two teams can challenge the A-rank
See, that would be a a reasonable system if it wasn't for Ninomiya and Kageura. Nino and Kage are actually fairly high up A-rankers, so as long as they're in B-rank the only way to make it to A-rank is to repeatedly beat A-rankers.
A-rank teams 6 to 8 should be really really glad that they made A-rank before Ninomiya and Kageura were demoted. I'm looking at you Miwa squad.
Learning how to beat strong trigger users is important. Do you think Dr. Octopus is going to go easy on you the next time he comes knocking?
Why does it matter? A strong the strongest B-rank teams are the strongest B-rank teams
and Miwa squad is great don't know why you think they don't deserve their posistion
Twitter become popular for artists
Pixiv made changes to their interface and Terms of Service that made many Japanese artists angry enough to flee for other sites, like Twitter, where they set up camp to wait for a viable alternative site to appear.
They're A-rank No 7. Kageura used to be A-rank No-6 and judging from the way Ninomiya squad is still stronger than Kageura squad even after losing a sniper, Nino squad was at least No 5, possibly higher. If Miwa squad tried to fight in the B-rank rank wars, they'd fail to make it up to A-rank.
The Number of A-Rank squads will increase anyway over time so it's actually quite a good idea to have such a high hurdle in the top.
Hoodie and skirt does things to me that make me want to commit crimes. So yes.
Present day Katori isnt bad either.
Former A-rank No.1 squad member Shuji (Same as nino) as well as someone strong to use lead bullet effectively
A special spear user and the only shown case of genyo
Yea bud there only weakness is the other sniper
Can't argue with the facts. They're A-rank number 7. Unless something is wrong with the rank wars, that means they're less capable than A-rank 1 to 6.
Troll sniper/Trapper comobo
All stealth squad
Literaly dakka and cut squad + baggage
They don't have Azuma anymore and have to work for their rank.
This is what I must do with a straight face
While planting IEDs behind everyone
Sasuga Osamu bin Mikumo.
NO MEEDEN IMMIGRANTS!
But he's the one kidnapping people into Afto.
Forced immigration is actually really good for the trion economy
People coming for work/leeching/revenge
That's a big diffrerence.
I can't wait for the expedition selection wars.
mfw Osamu kills Yuiga in the first 30 seconds then fights Izumi
mfw Yuma fights Tachikawa
mfw Chika solos Fuyushima squad by blowing up every possible sniper position
mfw Kazama falls for Osamu's keikaku once more
Ranks and ability are constantly shifting. And results of fights are going to change from battle to battle. I think it's a bit hasty to use ranks as hard limits to how good a squad is.
I'd rather not have T-2 fight the top squads, There is no need from a story perspective for them to be better.
They have to fight someone to get to A-rank and fight someone to get on the away mission. They don't have to shoot up to A-rank 1 but they need to have some ability to keep up with the strongest.
I wonder what they have Yuiga do on expedition. Does he just babysit the ship? Or maybe he has the ever-important job as "bait".
Just leave him in cryosleep.
Someone needs to clean the boots and disinfect the ship, don't want any neighbour dirt back home in case someone brings back dimensional smallpox
WTF! there still no KorBro?!
Katori becoming Osamu's rival, even if it is only one way would be the best turn of event
If only it were possible to pull a 6-Star character
Speaking of Yuiga, does anyone want to see him leave Chuuni squad and make his own squad with the three idiots?
The three idiots are actually talented though
Her genius complex could no longer be maintained by half assing it so she got bitter and angry.
Osamu being so weak but having so much conviction is giving her a wake up call.
I think he said he was on vacations this week.
I was really tired yesterday when the Korean scans came out so I went to sleep first.
Eh is that so. I don't know that KorBro of BnHA and WT is not the same sorry.
Loli Katori is the best
Too lazy to study and didn't even bother to watch fight recording
Gets BTFO by Chika's cannon
Gets baited and played by Osamu
The flashback is kinda interrupting the momentum of the curbstomping but for some reason I couldn't get enough of this salt.
The salt caused a rift in time and threw us in the past
Calling it now, Katori and Osamu are gonna be rivals
FUCK, I just blew most of my crystals this morning on the cheap 35-for-ten gasha because I needed my fix.
I hope Replica gets a Replica accessory.
That came earlier than I was expecting.
Is that a limited edition gatcha like Fujin Miwa?
I wonder if Ashihara is going to keep the color page streak going with a spread of the four MCs again.
Reading the chapter like this. Osamu and Katori is really opposite in pretty much every way.
I've been playing this game for more than six months and I've only pulled a 6* from the normal gacha once.
It's likely that Hyuse will be in the next color spread to celebrate the new T-2 team, so Ashihara might change it up.
Meanwhile Somei is fairly similar to Osamu. If Katori wasn't determined to be Hana's friend then Somei might have grown up just as friendless as Osamu did.
It makes me wonder what is gonna happen after the match. This can be good for all parties involved if they talk to each other or something.
Osamu has friends...right?
Well. I mean. There's Kuga.
The closest thing he had before Kuga was probably Chika but that was more always more of a big brother kind of deal.
But. Yuma is his partner
in crime I imagine. Not exactly a friend.
That's a friend.
Does he have friends (plural)? Eh... if you count Yuiga? The rest of his mentors? Tamakoma Branch? Hard call.
There was Rinji as well. Rinji was close enough to Osamu to confide in him about his plans to go to the Neighborhood. But Osamu always referred to him as just his tutor/someone he owes a lot to.
It could also be an issue with Osamu's mentality. He probably doesn't think they're friends. This guy doesn't seek out friendships himself.
Doesn't he get lonely.
Won't Miyosshi and the others in his class count?
Id like to eventually have color spreads of all the A-ranked squads. Unfortunately Ashihara doesnt do too mamy
Replies to his classmates when they try to talk to him.
Doesn't interact with them otherwise.
Can't really call that friendship.
I'm pretty sure they only became friendly with him after him revealing himself as a Border agent and rescuing everyone. If we had more classroom scenes, there'd probably be some chatting with them.
Finally a chapter that wasn't boring as hell. The art is still bad though.
He doesn't even come.
I remember when there was too much classroom stuff. Now having more is nice.
There was never too much though? Just a few scenes in the beginning chapters to conveniently make Yuma and Osamu meet, then that one scene right before Afto attacked.
We just need a SoL spinoff.
With Osamu class adventures. And Kazama and Suwa drinking adventures. And Godzumas Mayong times. And so on.
What about Border parents meeting?
Not really. He's got Yuma but they don't seem to spend time together outside of rank war planning. Yuma prefers to go fight in the solo wars while Osamu prefers to lie flat in a pool of his own blood.
He eats at T2 sometimes. They probably talk about something other than fighting.
You can't get lonely if you are constantly surrounded by Suffering-tan
Now that I think of it, Osamu's hidden techniques should be delayed Spiders.
So it's true that before Katori and Wakamura fell, there were no wires there.
That was a nice backstory. It was a bunch of the same, with some little twists here and there that made it remarkable. Like the fact of Hana studying, but still having her own philosofy. I would rather both moms dieying and dads staying alive though, that would make a more interesting scenario in my opinion.
Nice chapter anyways. May Mikomo live forever.
We just need a SoL spinoff.
I want Ashihara to specifically do a cute girls doing cute things sol. I know he has it in him
cute girls doing cute things
So a daily life of Nasu and Kako squads?
Don't forget Katori
And pretty much every Operator.
She was such a little cutie when she was younger.
He doesn't even seem interested in being friends with them.
Holy shit I was too busy looking for the CP/LC announcement to notice
I wonder what the Nisekoi emblem would look like
this is the bloodiest wt chapter so far
ripped nails > warp stabbing
World Trigger is getting pretty hardcore, first those crative kills in trion bodies, after broken nails and some luxated finger/ripped arms. You can tell that Ashihara is a man used to pain, even if he is on drugs now
and soon some luxated*
Somei witnessing a world beyond her reach and beyond her comprehension.
That's actually really sad.
Outside of Tamakoma he's closer with Kikuchihara than anyone not on Kazama squad, but otherwise he doesn't really talk to anyone for social reasons. He's got a working relationship with Arashiyama and Izumi/Yuiga, though.
Must be interesting in other squads' conversations about T-2 since they suddenly showed up and started doing really well while no one knows anything about them.
The defense stat is most closely tied to Resistance, but armor is the biggest determinant. Which is why nobody really ranks up resistance
Kikuchihara probably has trouble interacting with others because he's naturally so blunt. Osamu's tough, so he can take it.
When I think about it, Kuchi's attitude is probably the real reason that people shied away from teaming with him, not because he had a supposedly lame side effect. Most squads don't even have member with a side effect, so even if you had a weak or useless one it shouldn't affect your prospects. Plus the fact that the presence of any side effect indicates your trion is above average.
Most people probably find him a difficult person to be around. I think it's also interesting that Kikuchihara thinks positively of Amou, another chronic loner who's typically seen as off-kilter.
Kiku is just to shy to show that he would like to interact with people.
And probably hearing what everyone has to say about oneself behind your back isn't helping him liking people
Oh look, samefaces are talking
which one? they all have a severe case of sameface.
Tokieda and Yuma have different eyes
Tokieda and Kikuchihara are the characters that look most alike to me.
Given that every character gets repeated a few times with there design you would think Ashihara would try to make as few characters as possible.
Everyone is either
More like :`|
You forgot the star.
Though it's not really hard to distinct the characters.
Well everyone mostly has distinct hair styles.
Sameface is pretty bad, but I've never had a problem telling the characters apart. While most characters look like templates with features stapled on, the features are fairly distinctive and varied.
The names though, Jesus. World Trigger's loads and loads of characters and the insistence on using common Japanese names for everything makes it hell to remember everyone's names. I only started to tell who everyone was talking about after reading through twice and using the wiki.
I kept confusing Miwa and Kazama until recently. Right now I still confuse Tokieda and Kuchi-something. One's an ass, and the other's an ass with a hearing side effect.
Tokieda isn't really an ass. He just looks and acts like he's perpetually stoned.
Yeah, took me a while to distinguish the two of them. Kazama's got spiky hair while Miwa doesn't, and Tokieda's got a pretty solid bowl cut with Kuchi's hair is longer.
Never read or watched WT.
Is it decent read? And does it have romance?
Kazama is the manlet
Reading these threads weekly helped with the names
As for the faces, I kept thinking this guy of all people was Karasuma after Geist took a heavy toll on his real body for some reason
in the anime, since Osamu looked like he simply fainted
Started out pretty slow but it's really picked up from there. Starts pretty standard but it's got much better worldbuilding than most shounens and for such a wide cast of characters, they all feel decently fleshed out and have their own small roles to play.
Best part of it is easily the mc, though. Osamu bin Mikumo stays underpowered throughout the entire thing and how weak he is compared to where he needs to be is constantly brought up, meaning you root for him all the more when he finally gets something done (last chapter). The trigger system and the world it takes place in are also pretty unique, from what we've seen of it.
I wouldn't recommend the anime, budget's pretty low and it's marketed more for kids. They do a pretty decent job on the fight scenes, though.
And no romance?
Is it a decent read?
Survive the first twenty chapers and you got a good read.
Does it have romance?
Nope. Except you have extrem shipping googles.
Reminder that Karasuma's purpose is to teach Osamu how to be sexy enough to pick up chicks, and it's clearly working.
Nope. Except you have extrem shipping googles.
Fuck, i was wanting to read some decent shounen with romance.
There haven't been any good shounen+romance since Kekkaishi
Are you joking? He's pretty chill and can be a bro too.
Anyone got DL link for chapters?
Batoto has no chapters before chapter 90 and madokami has watermarked releases from mangapanda
easily the MC
You mean Katori right? Osamu is only acting like it.
world trigger pastebin
Only pastebin I see in archives are ones with translation for current chapter, similar to thisUnless i go through every single thread and pastebin link.
Can you link me pastebin you're talking about?
Not that archive. The archive archive.
Desustorage is your best bet.
nwm, found it, opened 20 threads in archive and ctrl+f "pastebin"
Wow, Hana's family must've been rich to have a house like that. Comparing to Yoko's which was built out of wood (actually most homes are built out of wood because wood is more resistant to earthquakes, but not all wooden houses look like it, where with Katori's its obvious) and inherited from their grandfather probably means that the Katori household was actually fairly poor.
Did those bamsters just smash up their houses and wander away?
They rampaged through the area capturing people.
probably wasn't worth it to sift through the rubble when there were better, more easily accessed targets
My peers and i always wanted to play Godzilla
But we never could because the opposition was to hard
Finally no opposition
Have to capture peole
FUCK NO GODZILLA SMASH!
Someone on the neighborship probably activated manual mode and modded the system to actually track the score for buildings destroyed.
Awww yiss, an undefended planet
"Hey everyone, come smash up some shit before they get an army!"
They made a game out of destroying, killing and kidnapping people
I can see it.
Don't forget to shoot some beams guys!
Katori Squad clearly have potential, but their biggest problem is clearly that their team dynamic has turned so toxic. Katori hit the wall at the top of B-rank, and rather than bouncing back and trying to overcome it, like Tamakoma-2 did, she just got discouraged and turned on her teammates. Now she and Wakamura are at each other's throats, Miura is too much of a wet dishrag to keep the peace, and the only one who's even really trying to get them all to work together is Somei, who is just a voice in their ear.
It feels like the theme of this match has been leadership, and that Tamakoma-2 is poised to sweep both teams speaks to a failure of leadership from both Katori and Kakizaki.
It feels like the theme of this match has been leadership
I mean, that's kind of obvious at this point
I wouldn't say it's the bloodiest. Beside Osamu doing a pincushion impression, we had Miwa's flashback. With the dying/dead people in the background serving as visual examples of people whose trion glands had been extracted.
And of course before that, we had Enedora's death.
Yeah a 12 year old ripping her hands bloody attempting to dig through rumble is pretty brutal, but I'd say it's a bit below the times people have been left for dead in a pool of their own blood.
Yeah both of these were pretty brutal to watch.
Though it is the most graphic backstory where someone come off looking tough. Hana's cool for saving Yoko's life like that
True. Not to mention 16 year olds calmly searched that body afterwards.
It's probably not the first time they've done that
True, there is that.
Yeah, I'm sure away squads have seen some shit.
Would you say it was a Hunting Game?
Most agents who have been part of Border long enough have likely seen some shit. It's taken Border 4 years to reach the current level of manpower and tech. The first year or two after the invasion probably saw a lot more scenes like Miwa's flashback.
That's true. They barely would have had enough agents to run shifts
Apparently, the away missions are mainly negotiation and diplomacy, but I can't believe that with Tachikawa on board.
Has Tamakoma-2 gone out on defense patrol yet? I can't recall seeing them in combat against regular trion soldiers (bamsters etc).
Well, Kazama probably does all the talking.
There's also stealth operations to steal info/tech and if two countries are fighting they might even search dead bodies after battles for anything that could be valuable (Triggers).
With Tachikawa it always turns out one way
Chika finally gets over her issues shooting people and goes on away mission
Her team faces enemies have less developed Trion bodies/bail out systems
Yeah, he just always has that stupid fucking look on his face that makes you want to punch it.
Which is unfair to him because he seems like a cool guy. But that face, man.
Chika's ibis is pretty terrible for away missions. She can't go around blowing up Neighbour buildings without starting an interdimensional war. She'd need to stick entirely to Lead Lightning.
As a squad, no. They've only recently become a team.
Separately, yes, even though we don't really get to see what they do. One of Osamu's shifts happened to be the day of the Invasion.
pretty terrible for away missions
She's great for killing tough trion soldiers
Nah man, surgical cannon strikes.
They can make it work somehow.
If your enemy has started to pull out the tough trion soldiers, you've already lost. It'd be like carrying an anti-rank missile on a stealth mission into Soviet Russia. If you ever have to blow up a tank the entire Russian army knows where you are.
But anti tank is still worthwhile to have
Greetings Miden friends, what brings you to our peaceful little corner of the Neighbourhood?
What's that? You're declaring war? Quick, Izumi! Pre-emptive strike!
Maybe Chika's A-rank modification will be the ability to reduce her trion output. Slap a dimmer switch on her Ibis that lets her operate at something below the level of tactical nuke.
inb4 modified trigger that uses almost all her trion for an actual tactical nuke
Exactly. For that matter, does the BFF say anything about when they developed bail out? I suspect that took them a while as well. It'd would have been way too attention drawing while they were a secret organization, was apparently developed on earth, and most of the real R&D seems to have taken place after the invasion when they could get proper funding and engineers.
I don't think it was shown, but I recall Osamu at one point telling his teacher he had defense duty that afternoon and would need to leave early.
That's the funny thing. Chika would be actually less likely to accidentally kill someone if she got over her fear of shooting people, and mastered sniping from extreme range with an egret. With the Ibis she's likely to accidentally destroy someone's trion body, just in time for a building she shot to collapse on them.
inb4 modified trigger than uses almost all of Osamu's trion for an average sized Asteroid cube.
Now that I do think about it, they give too much shit about Chika dying wish but the rest of her teammates have it as much as her.
Osamu is so selfless that the guy gladly got stabbed trying to save Chika and Yuma is okay at the idea of giving his life to restore his father's. T-2 is a indeed a suicidal team
Just like in real life, no-one cares about sweaty nerds.
Because being heroic gives Osamu's life meaning
Osamu's trion is only 1/6th of Izumi's trion. Give him some experimental trigger like Geist that lets him act like he's got high trion but run out entirely in the matter of minutes and you'd have a monster on your hands.
Osamu was learning composite shots before he lost that Azuma rank battle.
Maybe he'll attempt composite spiders instead.
Karasuma's Trion: 7
Time until bailout after activating Geist: 3 min. 36 seconds
Of course you consider the fact that Karasuma used up some of his Trion before activating it, so the bailout time would be longer if he used it on a full tank of Trion
But putting that aside, according to those stats Osamu would only have 15 seconds to go ham with Geist before he bails out
I keep forgetting that they still have to go to school. It's been a while since the manga showed them ever going there.
According to BBF Karasuma would last 4 minutes and a half or so at full Trion.
Geist really doesn't feel as broken as it's forced bailout limit would suggest.
It's the most garbage ultimate in Smash Borders, I will tell you that
Have like "One for All" thing where Osamu improves every part of his ability for a minute. And he can only use it once daily.
I swear I've heard of that ability recently, but I can't remember from what.
It would be stupidly reckless to waste all your trion like that for such a short period of time. At least Karasuma has wiggle room in which he can mess up a little bit and still make use of his temporary strength
If you're assuming that Geist time is directionally proportional to Trion value, then his time would be higher than that.
1 Trion = 38.6 seconds of Geist (if you divide 270 seconds by a trion value of 7)
Osamu could keep it up for a bit over a minute.
Damn it, that's what I get for attempting to rearrange variables of a super simple algebra in my head. Yeah that's what I was going for
That shit doesn't even have an animation. It's just some negligible buff that lasts one turn and takes away some of your HP. Even Shield and whatever Chika does with her Egret aren't this bad
Well, it's not. Even in universe it's not really played up as this huge trump card, it's just something that lets Karasuma eke out an edge so he can finish a fight decisively. If he's using it the situation is probably fucked to begin with.
People forget this
It's the same for Karasuma. T-1's Triggers are like mini tactical nukes, using them outside of situations they are actually needed in will either be stupid or overkill.
Not going for the overkill
It's like they don't want to have fun.
That page was genuinely spooky. Hope we get more designs like this.
Does all of the Neighborhood understand some Miden language?
We know Aftokrator knew Japanese from the shit talking during the invasion.
Yuuma seemed to speak Japanese pretty fluently when he first transferred to Osamu's school.
I'm curious to know if Border has a way to communicate with Neighbors that speak a different language.
Galo also speaks Japanese apparently. I think everyone just speaks Japanese. Hope your suspension of disbelief can tolerate that. Either that or because later on Ashihara will reveal the Neighborhood is actually some weird ancient Japanese creation.
I don't remember language barriers being explained in the manga so I guess everyone just inexplicably speaks Japanese.
Destroy 5 houses to fill SPECIAL bar and shoot the LASER BEAAAM
Just assume TRION MAGIC and that being in trion body auto-translates the language.
This fight is interesting rereading it.
Kakizaki learned from his mistakes, albeit a little late he grown tremendously from this fight and learned to take more risk and listen to his teammates calls. That risk allowed him to almost take out Kuga and maybe the match if Kuga bails out because trion and her other teammate is able to take Osamu (Really probable) and Chika if she is lucky
Now in the other hand Kitora Unit learned nothing and will continue to do bad after this fight.
She'll learn to prepare for matches and work instead of halfassing everything.
The things holding back Katori squad are Katori herself and the toxic team atmosphere they have.
You don't have to assume anything.
It's currently irrelevant so who cares whether there's an actual explanation or not; it doesn't detract from the series.
This world only has japan.
Else we'd hear about America and their great trion wall.
Which the neighbors payed for
Has trion horns.
But yeah, it's "TRION SON, AIN'T GONNA EXPLAIN SHIT"
