World Trigger Manga Goes on 1-Week Hiatus Due to Creator's Neck Treatment

posted on by Karen Ressler
Series slated to return September 29

This year's 43rd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will announce on Monday that Daisuke Ashihara is taking a one-week hiatus from writing his World Trigger manga to treat the nerve roots affected by cervical spondylosis (wear and tear on neck area of spinal column). The series is slated to resume in the 44th issue on September 29th.

World Trigger debuted in last year's 11th issue of Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Viz Media added the series to its digital anthology version of Weekly Shonen Jump, and it will publish the first print volume on October 7. Shueisha will publish the eighth compiled volume in Japan on October 3.

Viz Media describes the series as follows:

Weekly Shonen Jump's newest series is out of this world! A gate to another dimension has burst open, and from it emerge gigantic invincible creatures that threaten all of humanity. Earth's only defense is a mysterious group of warriors who have co-opted the alien technology in order to fight back!

The World Trigger television anime from Toei Animation will premiere on Sundays at 6:30 a.m. on the TV Asahi station and its affiliates starting on October 5.
