Yuki Tabata Finally Spills Why ‘Black Clover’ Manga Changed Publication for Good


  • Black Clover author Yuki Tabata has decided to switch to another publication to maintain a better work-life balance.
  • It was a good decision for him as he could prioritize his health and family.

Yūki Tabata’s ‘Black Clover’ is an excellent shounen series that has reached its final stages. The anime series has voluntarily transferred to another of Shueisha’s publications, Jump Giga.

Unfortunately, this swirled multiple troubling rumors about the series not doing so well. Now, the author took it upon himself to address the reason for this significant change.

‘Black Clover’ author Yuki Tabata has decided to publish the series in another magazine to maintain a better work-life balance.

Tabata also revealed that he has more time to spend with his daughter. He also has more time to seek advice from his close friend Kohei Horikoshi, the creator of My Hero Academia. The two are tight, and they have been bouncing ideas off each other.

Yuki Tabata’s decision to switch platforms was driven by health concerns and his desire to prioritize his family. 

The move was the right decision for him as it allowed him to maintain the standard and popularity of his work while letting him prioritize his desires.

Manga authors should start prioritizing their health. We keep seeing more and more mangakas succumbing to their illness. More authors should make firm decisions like Tabata, and we, as the audience, should support their choices.
