A manga going on a hiatus sounds painful, but a mangaka’s health being the reason for it sounds even worse. This time, a popular sci-fi manga faces a similar situation, worrying its fans.
It hasn’t been long since the ugly truth behind the manga industry’s glory came out, and netizens raged over it.
Authors of popular manga like My Hero Academia, Jujutsu Kaisen, and more have been suffering through the same for a long time now, making the exploitation in the industry even more apparent to the world.
The latest one to join this unfortunate list is World Trigger.
Shueisha’s Jump SQ magazine announced World Trigger manga’s month-long hiatus during its February issue due to Daisuke Ashihara’s poor health.
“World Trigger” of Jump Square February oversized issue scheduled to release on January 4 will be suspended due to the poor physical condition of the author.
We are very sorry to all the long-awaited readers.
The March oversized issue of Jump Square (released on February 4) will be published. Thank you.Twitter Translation, English Translate
The manga will resume serialization in the magazine’s March issue scheduled for shipping and distribution on February 4, 2022.
Due to deadlines and pressure, authors and artists overwork themselves, which results in various health issues and disorders. Sometimes these illnesses become fatal, and nothing can be done to prevent them.
The World Trigger manga is going through its Expedition Selection Exam arc, where the squads are participating and competing against each other in The Away Mission Test.
With Squad 7 planning to make a strong comeback after a heavy loss, chapter 217 gave all the teams the second special assignment.
Do you think Squad 7 will be able to redeem themselves? Or will they lose this one too?
The deadline pressure often leads to incomplete storylines, sketchy panels, or missing critical information planned by the author.
This irritates both the creator and the readers as the author can’t give the fans their best or get their ideas through them.
I really wish for Ashihara’s speedy recovery and hope he gets plenty of rest before coming back.
