Artist Yasuo Ohtagaki's tendon inflammation put series on hiatus in September

This year's 24th issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine announced on Wednesday that Yasuo Ohtagaki's Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga will resume in the first 2019 issue on December 14. The manga went on hiatus in September due Ohtagaki's tenosynovitis (inflammation surrounding the tendons).

The manga's story is set in the same One Year War in UC 0079 as the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. It begins with the battles between two ace pilots of the Principality of Zeon and the Earth Federation at the "Thunderbolt Sector," a shoal zone with numerous wrecks of space colonies and warships.

Ohtagaki launched the manga in Big Comic Superior in March 2012, and Shogakukan published the 12th compiled book volume on July 30. Viz published the manga's ninth volume in English on Tuesday , and the 10th volume will ship on February 19. The manga inspired two original net anime series, each of which received a compilation film. Ohtagaki also drew a Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Gaiden spinoff manga.

Ohtagaki created the Moonlight Mile manga that inspired a 2007 television anime. ADV Films (and later FUNimation Entertainment) released the Moonlight Mile anime in North America.
