Synopsis

The people of Earth are suddenly faced with the fact that worlds other than their own exist, and they're not friendly. An invading force with advanced technology called Neighbors, have threatened to overrun and conquer the world. Luckily, an organization named Border was established to stop them. They have set up a base of operations in Mikado City near the gate that acts as entry point of Neighbors.

In the action sci-fi anime World Trigger, middle-school student Osamu Mikumo meets mysterious transferee Yuuma Kuga four and a half years after the appearance of the gate. Osamu, who’s secretly a Border member in training, finds out that Yuuma is not your typical student either.

So, the Fugitives Arc finally ended and we're returning to the canon storyline in episode 64. Not sure how long it'll last though, the last chapter they adapted was 103 and right now the manga is on chapter 128.

What's the point of this topic?

Are we going to have a discussion for each arc for a main series from now on? The main series is going back to the canon stuff now. The original reason I made the topic for World Trigger is because the news at the time was unclear of whether it would be a spin-off or continuation. The next arc is obviously the main story again rather than filler content.

It's fine. While we won't necessarily have discussion for separate arcs of all series (though sometimes it might make sense), the main thing here is that you did create a new thread for the prior arc because the change was significant--going into non-canon area--when it was unclear if it was going to be presented more as a new spinoff series or as a continuation of the show. Now that things are returning back to canon, another thread in line with the switch back to canon seems reasonable as well, even though there's not confusion about it being handled as a continuation of the same show.

As mentioned when discussing new discussion thread policy, being a bit less restrictive about "duplicates" is something we were aiming for, so this is a good example of that.

I'll be adding the new thread link to the Show Discussion thread soon.

Except this topic is also against the Series Discussion thread rules/policies. The latest episode has not aired yet until this weekends. That was made clear as well.

The main thread about the story is ongoing when the next arc is back. There's nothing unclear about that. The other topic was also very active. Anyways, I'll be posting my weekly thoughts there instead. This is nonsense and also goes against the same thread rules/policies that were enforced.

Again, the only reason I made the original topic about the filler arc is because it was unclear at the time whether it's a spinoff or ongoing series. This is clearly ongoing for the main story. Kurodenki knows it.

This is the news I was referring to. By "new series", it was very unclear if it would be a spin-off or a continuation in the same station.
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-07-22/world-trigger-tv-anime-gets-new-series-in-october/.90758

So in essence, it's not really reasonable.

Occasional exceptions at moderator discretion. Making the new thread a little in advance makes sense to help people transition from the existing thread, and Kurodenki asked about it before starting the thread.

It's a return to to the canon story, which had been broken with so it's a bit different than "clearly ongoing" since there was a significant break.

Please just relax. While rules can be useful, flexibility can also be. Further discussion about this in this thread will be deleted.

So... anyways, I'm glad we got to see Hyuse and the guys at border again. The only thing the filler arc did for me was make me appreciate the Invasion and Rank Wars arcs more. I didn't realize how good I had it. It almost made me want to rewatch them but I think I'll wait for the whole show to end before doing that.

Looks like another dude is coming back next episode. I can't wait. I'm gonna appreciate this show more from now on.

It's kinda ashame we are going to lose this anime.

Whther it will return or nt remasin s to be seen as they have an elite Team to go to the 3 Neighbor Planets Approaching, Maybe it wasnt a top of the Tier anime but was still in my Top 15 / 20 for a long time .Did a better job than a lot of other animes.

Maybe we could get an OVA series or a movie ??

Osamu wants Jin to join ( he cant part of the Elite off World Team ) so Tamakoma branch can be A-Ranked Jin has someone else in mind.

Why The Hurry Kuga w/ o Replica is slowly dying and wants Chika to find her brother.

I guess I never noticed that Osamu is possibly left-handed.
