The official Twitter account for the editorial department of Kodansha’s Weekly Young Magazine has announced that Soborou’s Why the hell are you here, Teacher!? manga does not appear in this year’s 39th issue due to the creator’s sudden illness. Though a new chapter does not appear in the issue, the manga still appears on the front cover and is listed in the table of contents.
Soborou explained on his own Twitter account that since the manga’s serialization began, he has experienced medical problems such as hearing loss and worsening tendonitis. When medical problems flared up, Soborou would rest while serialization continued. However, around the beginning of 2020, the issues became difficult for Soborou to ignore, and the days where it was difficult for him to continue working increased. After consulting with the magazine’s editorial department, the decision was made to put the manga on hiatus.
Soborou launched the Why the hell are you here, Teacher!? manga in 2016. Before that, Soborou published the manga as a series of one-shots under the title Golden Times.
