Blue Exorcist Manga to Go on Hiatus for Eight Months

The August 2021 issue of Shueisha’s Jump SQ. magazine has announced that Kazue Katō’s Blue Exorcist manga will go on hiatus for eight months until April 2022. During that time, Katō will launch an adaptation of author Fuyumi Ono’s Eizen Karukaya Kaiitan (Strange Tales from the Handy Shop Karukaya) horror novels as a short six-chapter manga mini-series in the magazine’s October 2021 issue in September 2021.

In a post on her Twitter account, Katō said that she would have loved to be able to serialize two works at the same time, but she worried that she might be too overstressed with the work (especially since this is her first manga adaptation of a novel). Therefore, she decided to put the Blue Exorcist manga on hiatus.

Katō recently had a two-month hiatus for Blue Exorcist from February 4-March 4, 2021. Explaining the hiatus, she only said that “simply put, 12 years of fatigue exploded,” though later added that she was not sick and was enjoying her vacation. Katō launched the manga in Jump SQ. in 2009. VIZ Media publishes the manga in English.
