Yuki Tabata’s Black Clover manga is about to take another brief break, but this time the reason cited is “production circumstances.” The announcement came through in the second 2023 issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, in which the series was already absent, and Black Clover is set to return on December 26 in the combined fourth and fifth issue.
Last month saw Black Clover taking a two-week break, as well, but that was due to author Yuki Tabata’s sudden illness.
The Black Clover manga has been running in the pages of Jump since February 2015, and there are currently 33 compiled volumes available in Japan, with 30 now out in English.
VIZ Media publishes the manga in English and Crunchyroll streams the anime, describing the series like so:
In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day. While Yuno is gifted with exceptional magical powers, Asta is the only one in this world without any. At the age of fifteen, both receive grimoires, magic books that amplify their holder’s magic. Asta’s is a rare Grimoire of Anti-Magic that negates and repels his opponent’s spells. Being opposite but good rivals, Yuno and Asta are ready for the hardest of challenges to achieve their common dream: to be the Wizard King. Giving up is never an option!
