This year’s 24th issue of Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion has announced that Keisuke Itagaki and Yukinao Yamauchi’s Baki Gaiden – Scarface manga will go on an indefinite hiatus.
The manga focuses on the character Kaoru Hanayama. Itagaki and Yamauchi launched this spin-off of the Baki manga in Akita Shoten’s Champion RED magazine in 2004, and then in 2008 and 2009 the two authors published the manga intermittently in both Champion RED and Weekly Shōnen Champion. The two authors ended the manga abruptly in 2009, and then resumed it in October 2014. Akita Shoten published the seventh compiled volume of Baki Gaiden – Scarface in February 2016.
