The invasion Border has been preparing for is here, and Neighbor gates begin opening up all over the city. Destruction of one type of neighbor Trion soldier gives way to a “new model,” one that has a very hard outer shell and that can sense trion-users and black triggers in the area. Yuma and Osamu work together to stop the new warriors, but Border’s ban on Yuma’s use of his black trigger deployment hampers his abilities. That is, until Border caves in the face of daunting odds and lets Yuma attack with his full strength. Meanwhile, Chika helps students escape from the school they all attended, and it’s going to be a close call in getting them all out before the Neighbors attack!
This volume was back to the level of action I've come to expect from World Trigger, and the political scheming between the factions of Border was at a minimum. We also get a first glimpse at Neighbor command. They're humanoids like Yuma, and many are skilled tacticians. The Border forces are severely overwhelmed despite how many new teams were also introduced in this volume (seriously, I can't keep up...), and it feels very much like the mangaka is setting up a kidnapping of Chika, what with soldiers that are specifically designed to find trion like a bloodhound. On to volume seven, where I'm sure this battle will rage on and still not have a conclusion!
