Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka’s Grand Blue Dreaming manga began a hiatus in the February 2021 issue of Kodansha’s Good! Afternoon magazine. The announcement noted that Inoue has been suffering from back pain due to overwork, and the manga will remain in hiatus until he recovers.
The story of the manga is described as:
After moving out on his own to a seaside town, Iori Kitahara makes a college debut he never anticipated. A new chapter of his life unfolds, full of diving with beautiful girls and shenanigans with a gaggle of lovable bastards. Idiot-expert Kenji Inoue and au naturel authority Kimitake Yoshioka bring you a glorious college tale filled with booze-fueled antics.
Inoue and Yoshioka launched the manga in Kodansha’s Good! Afternoon magazine in April 2014. Kodansha Comics is releasing Grand Blue Dreaming digitally in English.
