Manga creator Daisuke Higuchi has announced in Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday magazine and Manga ONE app that she is putting her Whistle! W (pronounced “Whistle! Double”) manga on hiatus due to health issues. She noted that she is taking some time off to recover and “recharge.”
Higuchi launched the manga in Ura Sunday and Manga ONE in September 2016. Shogakukan published the manga’s fourth compiled book volume on January 18, 2019. The manga is a “new story” in Higuchi’s Whistle! soccer manga series.
