Manga creator Tomo Takeuchi has announced on Twitter that her Welcome to the Ballroom manga will not appear in the November 2020 issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Magazine on October 6, 2020. Takeuchi stated the hiatus is due to the establishment of a new system and the replacement of assistants, which slowed down the process. Takeuchi plans to deliver more chapters from November 2020 onward, based on lessons learned from this experience.
The manga went on hiatus in December 2017 due to Takeuchi’s health, and had returned from hiatus in July 2019. The manga then went on an indefinite hiatus, starting with the magazine’s February 2020 issue in January 2020. The magazine had planned to have a new chapter for the manga in February 2020 issue, but due to Takeuchi’s poor health leading to a continued difficulty in writing, there was no new manga chapter in the issue. The manga eventually resumed in July 2020.
Takeuchi began Welcome to the Ballroom in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011.
