Young Black Jack Manga Goes on Hiatus Until Summer to Prepare for Next Arc

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

This year's seventh issue of Akita Shoten's Young Champion magazine revealed on Tuesday that Yū-Go Ōkuma and Yoshiaki Tabata's Young Black Jack manga is going on hiatus until summer so that the creators can prepare for the manga's next arc. The magazine also reveals that the manga's 12th compiled book volume is slated to ship on April 20.

The manga is a prequel to Black Jack, Osamu Tezuka's classic series about a brilliant maverick doctor who practices without a license. The prequel follows Black Jack when he was still a young, unorthodox medical student in 1968.

Ōkuma and Tabata launched the manga in Young Champion in November 2011. Akita Shoten published the manga's 11th compiled book volume (seen right) in October.

The manga inspired a television anime series in October 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on February 7.
