terra formars

Kenichi Tachibana and Yu Sasuga’s Terra Formars manga is no stranger to hiatuses, mostly related to health issues. The latest has seen the manga on hold since December 2018, with Sasuga’s health issues cited as the reason, and it’s been on hiatus for the past five years. Now it’s finally getting ready to return to the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine on April 4, 2024, which is when this year’s 18th issue hits stands.

In addition to color opening page, the magazine will feature Terra Formars on the cover and will include a commemorative sticker.

To celebrate, all of the previous Terra Formars manga chapters will be available to read for free in Japan from March 28 to April 24.

Terra Formars debuted in 2011, and has been adapted into anime and a live-action film. It’s released in English by VIZ Media, who describe it like this:

In the late 26th century, overpopulation on Earth is reaching the breaking point, and humanity must find new frontiers. The terraforming of Mars has taken centuries but is now complete. The colonization of Mars by humanity is an epoch-making event, but an unintended side effect of the terraforming process unleashes a horror no one could ever have imagined. Now only bioengineered and expendable human soldiers stand any chance against monstrous creatures that threaten Earth itself!
