This year's 43rd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will announce on Monday that Daisuke Ashihara is taking a one-week hiatus from writing his World Trigger manga to treat the nerve roots affected by cervical spondylosis (wear and tear on neck area of spinal column). The series is slated to resume in the 44th issue on September 29th.
World Trigger debuted in last year's 11th issue of Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Viz Media added the series to its digital anthology version of Weekly Shonen Jump, and it will publish the first print volume on October 7. Shueisha will publish the eighth compiled volume in Japan on October 3.
