World Trigger Manga to Take Month Off Due to Author's Sudden Illness

"The illness is not ... COVID-19" says the official Twitter account

World Trigger 


The official Twitter account for the World Trigger manga series announced today that the manga series will be taking a hiatus in the March 2021 issue of Jump Square, which will be released February 4, due to author Daisuke Ashihara suddenly becoming ill. World Trigger is expected to return in the April issue of the magazine, which is scheduled for early March.





"We are sorry to inform you that [World Trigger] will not be appearing in the March issue of JUMP SQUARE, on sale on 4 February, due to the sudden illness of the author.

The illness is not the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Ashihara-sensei is currently resting.

The 23rd volume of the series will still be published on February 4 as planned.

[World Trigger] will return in the April issue of Jump Square. Thank you for your understanding."


Though this isn't the first time the manga has been on hiatus due to the creators health. The first time the series was put on hiatus was in 2014 when Ashihara was being treated for a pinched nerve and then was put on hiatus a second time in 2016 for an undisclosed health reason.


We hope Ashihara returns to full health again soon!
