Manga creator Tomo Takeuchi has announced that her Welcome to the Ballroom manga will go back on hiatus. The manga did not appear in the August 2022 issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine. In addition, Takeuchi stated that the manga will be irregularly serialized “in the next few months,” but she will announce ahead of time when a new chapter will appear in the magazine.
Takeuchi explained that she was currently busy preparing the manga’s compiled book volumes as well as unrelated work, and is “over capacity.”
Welcome to the Ballroom went on hiatus in January 2022 due to Takeuchi’s health issues, and only returned on May 6, 2022. Before this, the manga also took a hiatus in October 2021 due to Takeuchi establishing a new workflow and replacing assistants. The manga then returned in December 2021.
The manga previously went on hiatus in December 2017 due to Takeuchi’s health, and had returned from hiatus in July 2019. The manga then went on hiatus again from January to July 2020.
Takeuchi began the Welcome to the Ballroom manga in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011. Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English.
