Magical Sempai Manga Takes 1-Month Break

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

This year's 21st issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine revealed on Monday that AZU's Magical Sempai (Tejina Senpai) manga will take "around" a one-month break. Kodansha will announce the manga's return once preparations are finished on the magazine's official website and Twitter account.

The editorial department explained that AZU had previously taken a few breaks in order to raise a child (or children), but this new break will be in order to "stabilize the publication." AZU will also be organizing their work environment in order to prepare for the upcoming television anime adaptation of the manga.

Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga in English digitally, and it describes the story:

“I encountered her … a cute, but 'weird' sempai!” Magic-loving but stage-fright-addled, this sempai comes with a failure rate of 100%—but you can't take your eyes off her! The off-color, magical gag manga that's caused an uproar all over Japan is finally here! Here's to non-athletic hobbies!

AZU launched the manga in Young Magazine in February 2016, and Kodansha published the fifth volume last November. The television anime adaptation will premiere on Tokyo MX and other channels in July.
