Sorry ahead of time for my misuse of certain terms. I have almost no manga knowledge.
I was reading about the creator of One Piece being sick and how the series was delayed until he recovered. From what I read, the series is released weekly.
Now, is it that way because of Shonen Jump's schedule, or because of the writer's preference to work weekly? It is possible to move it to monthly with regards to the writer's health?
After reading American comics for years, it seems stressful to release a 20 page chapter week after week.
