This year’s 39th issue of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine has announced that, starting in the magazine’s next issue, manga creator Yuu Watase will put her Arata: The Legend manga back on hiatus. The manga had just resumed on July 8, 2015 after a 17 month hiatus since February 2014. Watase aims to release the 24th regular volume of the manga in Summer 2015.
The story of the manga is described as:
In a mythical world where humans and gods co-exist, Arata has the unfortunate honor of being the successor to the matriarchal Hime Clan. This means he has to pretend to be a girl or face death if his true gender is discovered. On the day of his inauguration, an assassination plot forces him to flee – and he somehow winds up in modern-day Japan. Meanwhile, a boy named Arata Hinohara gets sucked into the first Arata’s world and finds himself dealing with people after his life.
VIZ Media publishes Arata: The Legend in English.
