posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The manga went on hiatus in December 2017 due to Takeuchi's health. Although the hiatus was initially planned for two months, the series did not resume in March 2018. The magazine announced in April 2018 that the hiatus would continue due to the creator's health issues. Takeuchi revealed this past May that she is preparing to resume the manga.
Takeuchi began the series in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and Kodansha published the ninth compiled volume in June 2017. The Ballroom e Yōkoso Kōshiki Fanbook (Welcome to the Ballroom Official Fanbook) shipped in February 2018. Kodansha Comics published the manga's ninth volume in North America in January 2018. The series was 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 in July 2017, and ended in December 2017 with 24 episodes. The series streamed on Amazon's now-defunct Anime Strike channel as it aired in Japan.
