The December 2022 issue of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine has announced that Izumo Ito’s The Demon Girl Next Door manga will go on hiatus until 2023 due to health reasons. The manga did not appear in the magazine this month. Ito has long been suffering from an unspecified illness that has severely impacted her stamina and vision, and made it difficult for her to draw manga for long periods of time. Her health has led to several previous hiatuses for the manga, including in November 2019 and November 2021.

The manga is described as:

One morning, 15-year-old Yoshida Yuko wakes up to discover she has sprouted demon horns and a tail. Not only that, she learns from her mom that she has supernatural powers and an important mission—to restore her family’s glory by defeating the local magical girl. The magical girl in question is Chiyoda Momo, a student at Yuko’s school. With strength that is only mediocre at best, Yuko’s task to vanquish Momo will prove more challenging than she realizes in this topsy-turvy magical girl comedy.

Ito launched The Demon Girl Next Door manga in Manga Time Kirara Carat in September 2014. Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the manga in English.
