Kannagi Mangaka Wants a Year to Rest, Me Too

Hiatus alert.


Kannagi’s mangaka Takenashi Eri is doing a lot better after being very, very sick. However, she is nowhere near being the awesome Mangaka that she normally is at the moment, and to return to that state she needs about a year off. She wrote all this in a post on the 7th of September on her blog, and it looks something like this:
 ★08.07★

Long time no see everyone,
Thank you to all the people that were concerned for me. I’ve pretty much recovered to the point where I can live normally now. Though I still have rely on my family for food or when going out. Once in a while I can manage to stay up for the entire day. I can even go out with my friends now.
I am definitely recovering!

But I think I’ll stop drawing for a year at the very least
I’m doing simple jobs right now (such as checking)
Please wait a little longer before I can make a return

There’s a Takenashi Eri Kannagi exhibition being held at Aoyama in Tokyo, mainly showing art and etc, please go take a look if possible!

 
This kind of sucks, but then I remember Hunter X Hunter, and I don’t feel as bad anymore. Seriously that guy has been sick for five years or something. Despite my anger, who knows if she will actually get the entire year off, she might feel better after a couple of months and return to work, you never know.

I'd love a 1-year paid vacation...I don't think that exists.

/sadface on no more Kannagi for awhile, but glad to hear that she is doing better now.

Wonder if the hiatus has anything to do with the fan outcry over the last Kannagi chapter she did.

@Dream: What happened in the last chapter?
 
I'm waiting to see if there's any backlash from the latest Shugo Chara chapter! @_@

@gia: I think he's referring to the part where it was revealed that Kannagi herself had had a boyfriend before in some small bit of text (it may not have been the last chapter, but it wasn't too far back). The fan outcry was insane since this series has a lot of diehard NEETs and whacko-types following it, so, well.... you can imagine the rest.

@HeeroYuy: I remember the fuss, it just seems so long ago now-- was that really the most recent chapter? I thought she went back on duty for a little while.

@gia: Well, she went on hiatus for at least 6 months I know that much.... I really don't know how many chapters she released after that, since I never followed it to begin with.

Chapter 36 was the last chapter of the series I came across. I haven't seen anything else beyond that in a while.
