Welcome to the Ballroom Manga's New Chapter Has Fewer Pages Due to Author's Health

Author is preparing for future chapters

The November issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine is debuting on Friday with fewer pages in Tomo Takeuchi's latest Welcome to the Ballroom manga chapter due to the author's health. Nevertheless, the magazine notes that the author is preparing for future chapters.

Kodansha Comics is publishing Tomo Takeuchi's original manga series in North America, and it describes the story of the series:

Feckless high school student Tatara Fujita wants to be good at something - anything. Unfortunately, he's about as average as a slouchy teen can be. The local bullies know this, and make it a habit to hit him up for cash, but all that changes when the debonair Kaname Sengoku sends them packing. Sengoku's not the neighborhood watch, though. He's a professional ballroom dancer. And once Tatara Fujita gets pulled into the world of the ballroom, his life will never be the same.

Takeuchi began the series in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and Kodansha published the ninth compiled volume on June 23. Kodansha Comics published the manga's seventh volume on September 12. The series has been nominated for Manga Taisho awards, and was ranked on Comic Natalie's and the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! guidebook's lists of best manga in 2013.

Production I.G's television anime adaptation of the manga premiered on July 8, and is currently airing. It is slated for 24 episodes. The series has been streaming on Amazon's Anime Strike as it airs in Japan since July.
