Monster Musume manga creator OKAYADO has announced on Twitter that he will take a hiatus to focus on his mental health. He did not provide a time for his return, but he said that he would like to focus on recovery so he can resume serialization as soon as possible.
OKAYADO’s Monster Musume manga took several months off in 2017, and the Comic Ryū blog usually explained that the breaks were in preparation for the compiled volume releases for the series. This year, the manga took a hiatus between the 59th chapter in March 2018 and the 60th chapter in June 2018. The 61st and most recent chapter launched on August 30, 2018.
OKAYADO first published “Monster Musume” in Tokuma Shoten’s Comic Ryū’s Anthology Comic Kemomo 02 in 2011, and debuted the Monster Musume series in Comic Ryū in 2012. The 14th volume shipped on June 14, 2018.
