To describe the environment of anime production and releases is like trying to explain Fate Zero’s storyline to a newly inducted weeb. The process is tiring in itself with little to no rewards to compensate for the effort. Regardless, I do not wish to complain. Witnessing long-time classics getting a reboot is equivalent to the occasional kick of serotonin. And having unfinished anime adaptations get a much-deserved Season is gratifying at best. Keeping that in mind, hearing about the possibility of a World Trigger Season 3 doesn’t seem far-fetched at all.
As a result, here’s our in-depth take covering possible World Trigger Season 3 release date, trailer, plot, cast and suggested websites to watch on.
When is World Trigger Season 3 expected to release?
Here’s the tweet from the official website giving the confirmation for the World Trigger Season 3 release for October 2021. For those of you enlightened weebs who can “read” Japanese… don’t. Even so, I’m not despotic enough to deny a translation:
The announcement was made on the Anime Japan event 2021, held between the 27th and 28th of March. A couple of World Trigger Season 3 plots were rumoured to be leaked on the event. Although, based on what we’ve seen, the leaks aren’t of much consequence in exposing the significant parts of the plot.
World Trigger Season 3 Episode 1 got premiered on Saturday, October 9th, 2021/Sunday, October 10th, depending on the geography you are in. Crunchyroll will simulcast the episodes once they are broadcast in Japan.

World Trigger Season 3 Streaming Sites
Season 3 begins its official airing in Japan on October 2021, the Fall Anime Season. TV Asahi will be handling the Japanese shores. Whereas, Crunchyroll which streamed Season 2 will likely be Season 3’s host’s too. Both the Japanese and the streaming sites will be released at the same time. So you can expect unexpected spoiler bombs out of the way.
There is the unexpected issue that World Trigger might not be featured on the Indian domain of Crunchyroll. Hence, you have two options, get a VPN, or watch on any of these recommended sites. Some of these streaming websites are our go-to options as well, especially given the treasure trove of old anime shows that they have.
World Trigger Season 3 Season 3 Storyline and Episodes
The basic plot talks about a prolonged inter-dimensional war between the Border and the Neighbors. While it does sound like a garden-themed outdoor party, the anime suggests otherwise. Toei Animation continues to lead the project from its Season 1 debut.
While Season 1 had 70 episodes, Season 2 was left with only a meagre 12. I’m just speculating here, but, Season 3 might end up with the same number of episodes as the second Season. It means we will be treated to another 12 episodes in World Trigger Season 3!
Season 3 has had a couple of leaks concerning the Battle Arcs. Based on the manga chapters being adapted we can hint the second part of B-rank battles might commence.
World Trigger Season 3 Trailer
The anime television series adaptation has been produced under the banner of Toei Animation. It was a couple of days ago when Toei Animation unveiled another World Trigger Season 3 trailer during New York Comic Con 2021. During the announcement, Toe revealed that the World Trigger Season 2 English dub is in production and hopefully it should be released by the end of 2021. Voice artiste Ian Sinclair would be joining the English dub cast lending to Gatlin.
