Blue Lock Manga Goes on Sudden Hiatus Due to Illustrator Nomura's Health

The manga is scheduled to return in the 48th issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine

Blue Lock

 

The official Twitter account for Blue Lock announced yesterday that the manga series will be taking a sudden break due to the poor health of the illustrator of the series Yusuke Nomura. Due to the printing lead time of the physical magazine, the cover of this week's issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine says the newest chapter is inside, but isn't, and won't be returning until the 48th issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine, scheduled to be released on October 27.

 

 

 

 

This time last year, Nomura shared his sleeping schedule (or lack thereof), showing the manga creator gets on average 4 hours and 10 minutes of sleep during a week. With the TV anime coming up, it's likely Nomura has a lot on their plate. 

 

The TV anime for Blue Lock is scheduled for 2022, with Tetsuaki Watanabe (Haikyu!! episode director) leading the team as the director at anime studio eightbit. Kodansha releases the manga series in English, describing it as such:

 

After a disastrous defeat at the 2018 World Cup, Japan's team struggles to regroup. But what's missing? An absolute Ace Striker, who can guide them to the win. The Japan Football Union is hell-bent on creating a striker who hungers for goals and thirsts for victory, and who can be the decisive instrument in turning around a losing match...and to do so, they've gathered 300 of Japan's best and brightest youth players. Who will emerge to lead the team...and will they be able to out-muscle and out-ego everyone who stands in their way?
