Yuu Watase Aims to Resume Arata: The Legend Manga This Year

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Manga went on hiatus in August 2015

Manga creator Yuu Watase posted on Twitter on Saturday that she is considering trying to resume her Arata: The Legend manga this year. Watase added that she is still recovering from depression.

Watase put the manga on hiatus in August 2015. The manga had resumed a month before after another 17-month hiatus. Watase is also working on the "Remaster" edition of the manga, and the ninth volume shipped on April 18. The original manga's 24th volume shipped in September 2015.

Watase most recently launched the Fushigi Yūgi: Byakko Senki manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Flowers magazine in August, although the manga runs in the magazine every other month. Shogakukan published the manga's first volume on April 10.

Viz Media publishes Arata: The Legend in English, and it describes the manga's story:

In a mythical world where humans and gods co-exist, Arata has the unfortunate honor of being the successor to the matriarchal Hime Clan. This means he has to pretend to be a girl or face death if his true gender is discovered! On the day of his inauguration, an assassination plot forces him to flee - and he somehow winds up in modern-day Japan! Meanwhile, a boy named Arata Hinohara gets sucked into the first Arata's world and finds himself dealing with people after his life!

The manga received a 12-episode anime adaptation in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Viz Media published the manga's 24th volume in English in August 2016.
