Such intense efforts often result in mental or physical health deterioration, and we have witnessed enough incidents till now to acknowledge this issue.
For time and time again, Daisuke Ashihara’s World Trigger manga has been subjected to long and short breaks due to his poor physical condition.
The manga also took a break from its March issue, which came out on February 4, and this convention of frequent delays continues as we step into April.
On Monday, the official website for World Trigger manga revealed that the manga would not be seen in the April issue of Shueisha’s Jump SQ magazine.

However, the announcement somewhat relieved us by confirming that Ashihara’s illness is in no way related to the new coronavirus disease.
The author is currently recovering slowly, and we sincerely hope to see him back to work. Two delays within 3 months may turn out to be an issue to worry about, but then again, it’s great that health is getting priority.
But don’t you worry, we aren’t getting robbed of World Trigger content yet. The final episode of World Trigger Season 2 will release on April 11, and the third season in October has already been confirmed.
The B-ranks wars finally get intense, and I am sure that we fans can take the anime as compensation until our fan-favorite mangaka gets back to his drawing table.
