Arakawa Under the Bridge creator Hikaru Nakamura to return after maternity leave

The official website for Kodansha's Morning magazine announced on Tuesday that Hikaru Nakamura will resume her Saint Young Men comedy manga in the Morning 2 magazine's 56th issue on March 22. Like Nakamura's other ongoing manga Arakawa Under the Bridge, Saint Young Men has been on a half-year break since last September, due to Nakamura's maternity leave.

In the caption for an illustration that she drew to announce the news, Nakamura revealed that she gave birth to her baby without incident, so she is ready to return to manga work. Arakawa Under the Bridge will also resume on April 6.

Nakamura launched Saint Young Men in Morning 2 in 2006. She has also been drawing Arakawa Under the Bridge in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine since 2004. Saint Young Men was nominated for the Best Comic award at this year's Angoulême International Comics Festival, which took place in France from January 26 to 29.
