The official Twitter account for the World Trigger manga series revealed tonight that the series will be taking the month off and return in the July issue of Jump Square, which is set to be released on June 3. The tweet explained that the hiatus is due to the “poor physical condition” of manga creator Daisuke Ashihara but didn’t go into further details.
