posted on by Ko Ransom
Aloha Higa, the creator of the Shirokuma Café (Polar Bear's Café) manga, commented further on Wednesday regarding the anime adaptation of her manga, as well as on her decision to put the manga on indefinite hiatus.
Through multiple posts on her Twitter account, Higa wrote that after various discussions, it became clear to her that the editorial department responsible for her manga was approving materials sent by the anime production team for checking without consulting with her first, and that the anime team was simply following standard procedure from their end. Higa also wrote that individuals from the anime production's side told her that her editor sent them emails stating that materials such as scripts would be sent directly to Higa, but that they never were.
Higa went on to say that she thanked the anime producers for making a high-quality title and for all of their hard work, but that the manga's hiatus will continue for "a while."
