Expedition Selection Exam 7 (遠征選抜試験➆ Ensei Senpatsu Shiken 7?) is chapter 209 of the World Trigger manga.


The first special assignment is sent out to each team: 'Why do you think the teams were shuffled?' As the groups discuss their input, Squad 7's lights lose power just as Osamu's computer goes dark.

Long Summary[]

The chapter starts off with Kakizaki announcing the 1st special assignment has come in. Kodera thinks it is interesting while Mizukami thinks it's annoying. Osamu reads out the assignment and the squads begin thinking. Yōko believes the answer is what they were told earlier while Oki points out they would be with their original squads if that was true, and Suwa agrees.

Mizukami asks his squad what they think. Teruya wonders if there is a specific answer they must reach or if it's open ended. Kashio believes that the phrasing makes it sounds like they have to give their opinion on the answer and not a hypothetical correct answer. Arafune points out they shouldn't overthink this and they all move on.

Kodera tells his squad they shouldn't waste too much time on this assignment putting a time limit of 20 minutes to do it.

Kageura thinks the answer is to simulate the shuffling on the away mission while Inukai points out if it was that simple they wouldn't be asking us.

Tonooka thinks they might be trying to wear the agents down similar to how a long journey is. Kai Minamisawa points out he isn't very stressed while Kikuchihara thinks to himself otherwise.

Hanazaki states how the answer must be related to how some agents aren't actually going on the away mission. Sasamori rebutts this by saying the mission still affects those staying because squads may lose members going on the mission. Yoshito Hanzaki then states that Wakamura, Mizukami, and Kitazoe were selected as captains to be substitute captains when their respective squad leaders go on the mission. Rokurō Wakamura however points out that Katori likely isn't going on the away mission. Hyuse butts in saying she might be chosen for her battle skills instead.

Okudera says nothing comes to mind but Kuruma tells him not to worry, as anything they come up with will help. Osano reacts to this by saying maybe the squads shuffled because it's fresh and fun, to which Kuruma agrees. Hokari says that they probably don't care if they have fun. Osano elaborates on it and Yuba 100% agrees with her proving Osano's statement of how new relationships can be born here.

Kazuki Kurauchi believes weaknesses that are concealed on their home squads can be revealed with other teammates. Tsutsumi agrees, stating weaknesses are usually made up for by teammates. Hiyami thinks to herself about Tsuji's weakness to girls and Kumagai thinks about Shiki's weakness to boys. Aki further expands on this by stating they might have to conquer challenges they've avoided until now, and Murakami further expands on it by saying how they will appreciate their old squadmates even more now.

Ninomiya brings up Mikumo, Wakamura, Koarai/Okudera, and Kageura due to how they all heavily rely on their teammates. Kagami agrees on how some squads revolve around a particular ace. Azuma, Chika, and Ema believe their squadmates will be fine. Ninomiya however says their personalities are a huge factor as well like how Masato Kageura is heavily comforted by Hikari and Kitazoe. Ninomiya brings up thinking what Mikumo can do without his squadmates who usually respect him. Ema thinks to himself how Ninomiya doesn't have his respect either and thinks of Hstohara while doing so.

Katori sidelines the question and brings up how they chose the captains. Suwa asks if she wanted to be a captain and she responds no, she just wants to know what criteria they used. Oki questions whether there is actually a criteria but Katori firmly believes there is one. Suwa agrees with her but also states they might not have been chosen for the same reasons. Suwa believes Utagawa, Kodera, Zoe, and Ko were all selected as future squad captains. He also states Ninomiya, Kuruma, Kakizaki, and Oji were all selected due to being management material. Osamu asks about management material and Suwa states more staff are needed for the growing Border. A beeping sound is heard and the lights go out; Osamu notices the panel is out of trion and goes to fill it up. The lights come back on and Suwa tells Oki to fill it up a bit more. The chapter ends with Osamu discovering he is out of trion and his laptop won't turn on.
