Black Clover manga going on hiatus for three months
Last week, rumors began circulating online that the Black Clover manga series was preparing to take an extended hiatus so that author Yuki Tabata could prepare for the final arc of the series.
The first rumors about the potential hiatus came from the Weekly Shonen Jump News Twitter page, which declared on April 20, “According to leaks, Yuki Tabata’s Black Clover will enter a short hiatus from issue #23 of Weekly Shonen Jump.”
The page would then reaffirm this information only hours later, responding to the original post and add“Yuki Tabata’s Black Clover will enter a 3-month hiatus from issue #23, in order to prepare for the series’ ‘Final Arc/Chapter’.”
Unfortunately, the three-month break has now been confirmed for the Black Clover manga, with Viz Media sharing an official blog post regarding the hiatus.
As part of the post, it was confirmed that “To prepare for the new story arc, black clover will take a short break from the next issue. Adding that “it was decided to allow him to rest for a short time before starting the creation of the new arc”.
“The break is scheduled for approximately three months, and the return date will be announced in an upcoming issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. This may be challenging news for those eagerly awaiting the next chapter, but we ask for your patience and understanding. We ask that you continue to support black clover go forward. – WSJ Editorial Department, via Viz Media.
Tabata would then end the statement by apologizing to the fans who were eagerly awaiting the continuation of the manga series. Stating how “I plan to do my best to black clover as good as possible and give it an appropriate conclusion. So I would appreciate if you could just wait a little longer.
Black Clover Chapter 332 Release Date TBD
As of this writing, neither the production team nor distribution partners (domestic and international) have commented on the potential return date of Black Clover Chapter 332.
Interestingly, the whole of WSJ magazine will also be on hiatus next week for “Golden Week” in Japan anyway, along with Comic Book noting comment “There is no set date for the return of the manga, so Black Clover could be sold out indefinitely.”
“Given how diligent its creator was in publishing, you can hardly fault Yuki Tabata for needing a break. The artist worked incredibly hard with the Battle of Lucifero, so Tabata must be enjoying a long vacation with his family to celebrate. comics.
