The May 2018 issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Magazine has announced that Tomo Takeuchi’s Welcome to the Ballroom manga is still on hiatus due to the author’s health issues. The magazine noted that it will make an announcement once Takeuchi has recovered and started preparing the new chapter.
The manga’s two-month hiatus started in December 2017, and it did not appear in the February 2018 and March 2018 issues. The manga’s chapter that debuted in October 2017 had fewer pages due to Takeuchi’s health.
The manga was originally scheduled to return in March 2018 with the magazine’s April 2018 issue, but April issue noted that Takeuchi’s health deteriorated while drawing the new chapter, and she could not make it in time for the magazine issue. The issue further noted at the time that Takeuchi was aiming to resume the manga in April 2018.
Takeuchi began Welcome to the Ballroom in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and Kodansha published the ninth compiled volume in June 2017.
