The June 2021 issue of Kodansha’s Good! Afternoon magazine has announced that Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka’s Grand Blue Dreaming manga will go on hiatus and will return in June 2021, due to one of the creators being hospitalized for a sudden emergency. The announcement notes that the creator is recovering, but did not mention which of the manga’s authors was hospitalized, or the cause for the hospitalization. The manga recently resumed from a two month hiatus on March 4, 2021, after Inoue had been suffering from back pain due to overwork.
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 Grand Blue Dreaming in Good! Afternoon magazine in April 2014. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally in English.
