This year’s 21st issue of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine has announced that Yuu Watase’s Arata: The Legend (Arata Kangatari) manga will return in the 25th issue on May 19, 2021. The magazine will first republish chapters of the manga that will be included in the 13th volume of the “remastered” edition of the manga. The magazine will publish all-new chapters starting with the 32nd issue on July 7, 2021.
Watase had posted on Twitter in March 2021 that she and the staff of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine had decided on the resumption date of the manga, as well as the release date of the 13th volume of the manga’s “remastered” edition, but would announce the resumption date later.
Arata: The Legend has been on hiatus since 2015. Watase last resumed the manga in July 2015 (after an earlier 17-month hiatus), only to put the manga back on hiatus in August 2015.
