Black Clover Manga Takes 1-Week Break Due to Author's Hospitalization

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

This year's 30th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that Yūki Tabata's Black Clover manga is taking a break from the magazine's 31st issue on July 3. In the comments section of the 30th issue, Tabata explains that he was hospitalized due to asthma and is taking the time to recover.

Tabata began the series in Weekly Shonen Jump in February 2015. Viz Media publishes the manga in North America digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and also in print.

The manga inspired an event anime that screened in Japan in November and December. The event anime then shipped on DVD with the manga's 11th volume (pictured at right) on May 2. The manga's 12th volume will ship on August 4.

The manga is inspiring television anime adaptation by director Tatsuya Yoshihara (Monster Musume, Yatterman Night, Muromi-san, Long Riders!) and Studio Pierrot.
