The Black Clover manga will be taking a break for the next three months while series creator Yuki Tabata prepares the final arc of the long-running adventure series. The Weekly Shonen Jump editorial department and Tabata announced the news tonight in a joint statement on the Shonen Jump website, with them both confirming that the break was a joint decision.
Here’s a translation of Yuki Tabata‘s comment:
“My intention was to continue to draw [Black Clover] without taking a break, but after consulting with the editorial department, we have decided to take an extended break so that I can properly prepare the final manuscript for the last arc of the series.
I sincerely apologize to all the readers who have been reading the series every week, but I will be back with my full energy to make the finale of Black Clover exciting, so please wait for me until then!”
Weekly Shonen Jump‘s editorial department expects the hiatus to last “around three months,” with the magazine confirming when the series will return to its pages at a later date. The Black Clover break will be starting in next week’s issue of Weekly Shonen Jump.

While we all wait to read the final arc of the manga, you can catch the entire Black Clover TV anime here on Crunchyroll, which describes it as such:
In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day. While Yuno is gifted with exceptional magical powers, Asta is the only one in this world without any. At the age of fifteen, both receive grimoires, magic books that amplify their holder’s magic. Asta’s is a rare Grimoire of Anti-Magic that negates and repels his opponent’s spells. Being opposite but good rivals, Yuno and Asta are ready for the hardest of challenges to achieve their common dream: to be the Wizard King. Giving up is never an option!
The Black Clover anime also will be continuing in 2023 in a brand new film for the series, with more details yet to be confirmed, as well as a mobile game set to be released at some point in 2022.
