The longest match so far in Blue Lock manga, Bastard Munchen vs. Ubers finally came to an end. As exciting as the match was, we were also looking forward to how it would affect the contracts of our favorite characters. This made the advent of the upcoming chapter an anticipated event. But now that Blue Lock chapter 239 has been delayed we’ll need to wait before we get to know what happens next.

This news came directly from the creator (illustrator) himself. Yusuke Nomura shared the news of the upcoming break on Twitter (now X) along with the reason. Here’s the reason behind the delay in the schedule of Blue Lock chapter 239 along with the revised release dates. 

Blue Lock Chapter 239 delayed- The reason behind it 

Yusuke Nomura shared on Twitter that chapter 238 has been released and it marks the end of the battle with Italy in the Ubers match. Further sharing the excitement he was feeling and urging readers to read the manga specifically for this match if they haven’t yet. At last, he shared “Next week I’ll be absent because I ran out of gas, so I will take a break since I ran too much”.

With that, the mangaka hinted at his health and the built-up fatigue as a reason behind this delay. Given how Blue Lock Manga sticks to schedule without many breaks, it’s good that the mangaka is prioritizing his health by taking a well-deserved break. Hopefully, he’ll recover well during the break.

Fans can read the upcoming chapter on Kodansha’s K Manga app and website. However, the availability of these platforms poses a problem worldwide, as they are exclusive to the United States. Another way to read the manga is directly through the Weekly Shonen Magazine. 

What to expect from the chapter?

While the match has ended, some loose ends need some tying. Some of the things to look forward to are the win from Isagi’s perspective and if Hiori has found an answer to the dilemma he was facing. Additionally, if the character’s relationship with Football has improved. Another exciting part of the upcoming chapter is the reaction of Isagi’s rivals, namely Kaiser and Barou.
