Shonen Jump readers, I bring good news! If you are a reader for the Weekly Shonen Jump and been a member from the beginning, you might have remembered the sci-fi series World Trigger. The manga disappeared in the magazine because of the author’s health condition. Revealed in a illustration on Twitter, manga author Daisuke Ashihara is coming out from hiatus and will go back to the series World Trigger. World Trigger will be in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on October 29th.

The manga took a week hiatus in September 2014 due to cervical spondylosis  and occasionally took one week breaks. However, his health grew worse and went to hiatus in November 2016.
