This year’s 43rd issue of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine has announced that Gosho Aoyama’s Detective Conan manga will take a nine-week hiatus starting with the magazine’s next issue and continuing through the 52nd issue. Aoyama will conduct research during the hiatus. The manga will resume in the magazine’s 53rd issue.
The manga recently returned from a seven-week hiatus that began on July 11, 2018 and ended on August 29, 2018. Aoyama similarly conducted research during that hiatus.
Weekly Shonen Sunday previously noted that Meitantei Conan Zero no Tea Time (Detective Conan: Zero’s Tea Time), the spin-off manga series by Takahiro Arai centering on the character Tōru Amuro, will have new chapters when the main Detective Conan manga is on hiatus, and will not publish chapters of the manga otherwise.
Arai launched the Meitantei Conan Zero no Tea Time manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday on May 9, 2018. Aoyama has “complete supervision” over the work.
