Eri Takenashi Recovers From Surgery, Kannagi to Resume


ComicREX have made the following announcement, which should ease the hearts of all those concerned over Kannagi mangaka Eri Takenashi’s grievous health problems, as well as the fate of Kannagi:

Regarding the hiatus of “Kannagi”:

We are aware that we have caused the readers of “Kannagi” a great deal of concern through the matter of its suspension.

Takenashi was abruptly struck down by a sudden illness shortly after the manuscript for the December issue of ComicREX was completed, and after this she was immediately hospitalised due to her critical condition; as a result, publication of Kannagi was suspended.

After this, she underwent surgery, which proved successful, and now her condition is favourable and she is moving towards a period of convalescence.

After the publication of the January edition of ComicREX, there were some reports to the effect that “Takenashi has ceased publication due to the calumnies she was subjected to”, but this is not the case.

Takenashi is currently hospitalised, but even so she has expressed a desire to move towards resuming her writing.

We hope that readers will be kind enough to wait whilst she convalesces.

The official announcement was brought to my attention by a comment left by BranGor, so thanks are in order.
