Weekly Shonen Jump To No Longer Serialize Black Clover Manga; Tabata Pens Heartfelt Message

Black Clover

In a surprising turn of events, Yuki Tabata’s manga “Black Clover” will no longer be serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, as it has been confirmed that the manga will be officially transferring its long run to Jump GIGA.

The transfer will likely to take place after the release of Weekly Shonen Jump issue #38.

In the light of this news, series creator Yuki Tabata has personally penned a heartfelt message explaining the reason behind the move, stating that the prolonged run of Black Clover manga with the demand of weekly serialization has been in odds with his own circumstances as a mangaka.

He also apologized to the fans for not being able to complete the manga serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump, at the same time assuring readers that he will bring the manga to a successful conclusion.

With the transition to Jump GIGA, Tabata is more optimistic about the opportunity to work on the climax of Black Clover under more favourable conditions.

Transferring to Jump GIGA!!!

As the serialisation of Black Clover has been going on for a long time, the increasing demands of the schedule for a weekly serialisation has been clashing more and more with my own situation as a manga author. Therefore, I’ve been discussing this with the editorial department for a while, and this time we have decided to transfer the serialisation to GIGA.

It’s a sudden move and it might have surprised the readers. I would like to apologise for not being able to finish the serialisation in Weekly Shonen Jump.

However, with GIGA, I believe I can proceed with the climax of Black Clover in a more optimal condition, aligning with my personal situation as a writer! There are still quite a few stories I’d like to draw, that I must draw, so please look forward to them.

I’ll do my best to bring Black Clover to a successful conclusion!

While this may need a bit of your patience, I will definitely power up in the upcoming Winter issue of GIGA, so I would be grateful if you could keep an eye on Asta and everyone else’s future!

Thank you very much for your continued suppoooooort!!
