The official website for Shogakukan’s Sho-Comi magazine has posted a handwritten message from Kanan Minami that revealed her Awa-Koi manga is going on hiatus. She said that she was unable to write the planned Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu one-shot manga due to her poor physical condition. Minami apologized and said she will return to her work when her condition improves.
The magazine’s editorial department also confirmed that Minami will take a long break beginning with the next issue. The magazine and its website will make an announcement in the future about the publication of the Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu one-shot and the return of Awa-Koi.
Minami launched the Awa-Koi manga in the magazine in 2016, and the third compiled book volume shipped in Japan on March 26, 2018.
