Black Clover is taking a short break so mangaka Yūki Tabata can focus on the final arc. Here's a message from the Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump Editorial Team and a message from Tabata Sensei with translations for both below.

A message from the Weekly Shonen Jump Editorial Team

To the readers,

Thank you for always supporting Black Clover!

To prepare for the new story arc, Black Clover will be going on a short break starting next issue. After discussing things with Tabata Sensei, it was decided to allow him to rest for a short amount of time before starting the creation of the new arc.

The break is planned to be about three months, and the return date will be announced in a future issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. This may be difficult news for those looking forward to the next chapter, but we request your patience and understanding. We ask that you continue to support Black Clover going forward.

A Message From Tabata Sensei

I personally wished to keep going without taking a break, but after discussing things with the editorial department, we decided that I should take a long break to give me more time to create the final arc.

I apologize to those who look forward to reading the new chapters each week. But I plan to do my best to make Black Clover as good as it can be and give it a proper conclusion. So, I’d appreciate it if you could just wait a little longer.

—Yūki Tabata
