Manga creator Shoko Conami (Shinobi Life, Yu no Hana Tsubame) revealed on her Twitter account on Thursday that she will announce the date that her Shikabane Cherry manga will resume in early February. Conami added that she recently finished inking the rough draft of the series' resumption chapter. Conami had announced in October that the manga would be going on hiatus while she recovered from illness.
Conami had been hospitalized three times in September and October. On September 3, she was hospitalized for extreme anemia. On September 5, she suffered a heart attack and was forced to undergo immediate surgery. Then on October 1, she had surgery to completely remove endometrial cancer (cancer in the uterus). She was then released from the hospital on October 10.
Conami began serialization on Shikabane Cherry in Akita Shoten's Monthly Princess magazine last July. The romantic comedy tells the story of a girl who decides to take a large quantity of secret medicine after falling ill before an important date. Though the medicine is supposed to keep her cells fresh, she realizes that it has stopped her heart, making her into a zombie.
