The latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine gave Black Clover fans a heads up on what’s coming up for the series, and that includes a brief break of two weeks. As a result of what has been described as author Yuki Tabata’s “sudden illness,” the series will be off for this week’s issue and the next, and will return in the magazine’s 52nd issue. 

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!

Beyond the manga’s return, next up for the series is a new anime film on March 31, 2023.
