The official Twitter account for Daisuke Ashihara’s World Trigger manga has announced that the manga will not appear in the magazine’s May 2021 issue on April 2, 2021, due to the author’s poor physical health. The account again confirmed that Ashihara’s illness is not COVID-19, and added that Ashihara is currently recovering. The manga also took a break from the March 2021 issue, which came out on February 4, 2021.
Ashihara debuted World Trigger in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2013. The manga went on hiatus in November 2016 due to Ashihara’s poor physical health, and returned in the magazine in October 2018 for five issues before moving to Shueisha’s Jump SQ. magazine in December 2018. VIZ Media is publishing the manga in English.
