Arata: The Legend Manga Goes Back on Hiatus

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.
