The upcoming 51st issue of Shueisha’s Shonen Jump magazine will be revealing that Daisuke Ashihara’s popular action manga, World Trigger, will be going on hiatus “for a while,” as the mangaka is suffering from poor health. In other words, not even the Shonen Jump editorial staff knows when the manga will exactly return.


The mangaka has been suffering from cervical spondylosis (wear and tear on neck area of spinal column), and has been going on several hiatuses because of the condition. The manga wasn’t able to appear in the magazine’s 50th issue as well, and this is also because of Ashihara’s illness.

While there is still no official announcement of when the manga is returning, the staff has said that it will announce the date for the manga’s return in a future issue.
