Rozen Maiden, Zombie-Loan, and Shugo Chara!'s manga (nooooooooo!) all hang in the balance for the time being as creator Peach-Pit-- actually a pair of mangaka working together –has gone on hiatus due to health issues. It's unclear which of them is ill, or if perhaps both are, but whoever is sick has been in the hospital but should be discharged soon. Meanwhile, the next issue of each manga will not be published in their next anthologies (but hopefully they'll come soon).

Man, first Kannagi's creator, now Peach-Pit? Is there some kind of mangaka virus going around? Manga Flu? Mad Kao Disease? (Kao means face in Japanese. Laugh at my awful pun. LAUGH AT IT.)

At least it's not more Idolm@ster.

Kannagi's withdrawal seemed to be possibly related to his fan's backlash.  I assume that this case is probably just a coincidence?

I remember something like this also happened to Katsura Hoshino, which explains why there haven't been any D.Gray-Man chapters released for the past three weeks?
