Black Clover Manga Will Go on Hiatus for a Month

Black Clover will go on hiatus for two Weekly Shonen Jump volumes. It will appear in the #21 and #22 combination issue, but will not be in #23 or #24. Then, it will restart from the Issue #25. Issue #25 will come out on May 22, 2023. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

Though the hiatus will only last for two volumes, it’s technically going to last a month. There is no information as to the details behind the author’s hiatus. Recent Black Clover manga chapters have introduced a few major twists, such as Lucius’s return. So the timing of the break is slightly unfortunate for fans of the manga.

Hiatuses in manga are hardly a surprise. Yoshihiro Togashi, who also wrote manga in Weekly Shonen Jump, has had to go on frequent hiatuses during Hunter x Hunter’s run due to health concerns. It’s unclear if a decline in health is also the reason for Tabata’s break. Western fans replying to the Shonen Jump News Twitter have been supportive, with many of the top comments hoping that he has a good break with his family.

Black Clover is available to read in Weekly Shonen Jump and the hiatus will last until Issue #25 (May 22, 2023). You can also watch the anime via streaming services such as Crunchyroll.
