The Promised Neverland, the manga weekly written by Kaiu Shirai and designed by Posuka Demizu, began in Japan on Weekly Shonen Jump in August 2016 and, literally, the authors have never decided to take a week off from work.
For almost three years, therefore, the work moves to the drum beating and the authors have rested exclusively on the occasion of breaks of Shueisha related to anniversaries and holidays.
That said, we are here to inform you that The Promised Neverland, as spread by the advances of the number 24 of Shonen Jump (may 13), will for the first time in a pause in the number 25 of Weekly Shonen Jump on Monday (may 20) for reasons of ill-health of the writer Shirai.
The work, however, will return again in the next issue of the 27th of may.
Here is the message of the editorial department of Weekly Shonen Jump and author Shirai on the break:
“Thank you for being faithful supporters of The Promised Neverland. This time, the original creator of the story, Kaiu Shirai, you shall submit to medical checks for his current health. The manga will be on break, in the number 25 of Shonen Jump (may 20) and then return in the next next week. For the readers who were waiting for the next chapter, I want to apologize. I was worried about what I should write about this issue. Thanks again for your continuous support towards The Promised Neverland.“
“I'm really sorry. I'm disperatamene trying all ways to recover. See you soon in the edition of 20 may!“.
