Witch Craft Works' Mizunagi Puts Ivory Dark Manga on Hiatus Due to Health
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Kodansha's Shōnen Magazine R magazine announced on Tuesday that Ryū Mizunagi is putting her Ivory Dark manga on an indefinite hiatus, due to her poor health. The announcement noted that the manga will not return until Mizunagi has made a full recovery. The editorial department apologized to the manga's fans.
The "neo-dark fantasy" manga centers around the 16-year old girl Saori Yadorigi who awakens one day with the ability to see through the "cracks" in the world, and is overcome by an evil intent.
Mizunagi published a preview of the manga in Shōnen Magazine R's inaugural issue this year, and launched the series in the magazine's second issue on June 19. The November issue would have published the second full chapter, if the manga had not gone on hiatus.
Mizunagi is also publishing her Witch Craft Works manga in Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine. Kodansha published the manga's eighth compiled book volume on January 7. Vertical is releasing the manga in English, and published the seventh volume on October 13. The manga received a 12-episode television anime adaptation that aired in January 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
