The March 2023 issue of Kodansha’s Good! Afternoon magazine has announced that Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka’s Grand Blue Dreaming manga will go on hiatus due to one of the creators suffering from a sudden illness. The announcement did not elaborate on the illness, and did not reveal when the manga will return.
Grand Blue Dreaming went on hiatus from January to March 2021, as Inoue had been suffering from back pain due to overwork. The manga also went on hiatus again for one month in May 2021 due to one of the creators being hospitalized for a sudden emergency.
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.
