The Case Study of Vanitas Manga Takes 2-Month Break

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Manga had returned from 11-month hiatus in May 2023

Square Enix announced on Friday that Jun Mochizuki's The Case Study of Vanitas (Vanitas no Carte) manga will not appear in the June issue of Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine on May 22, nor will it appear in the July issue on June 21.

The manga went on hiatus in June 2022, and resumed in May 2023.

Yen Press has been publishing the manga simultaneously in English since its debut, and it describes the first volume:

Rumors revolving around The Book of Vanitas, a clockwork grimoire of dubious reputation, draw Noé, a young vampire in search of a friend's salvation, to Paris. What awaits him in the City of Flowers, however, is not long hours treading the pavement or rifling through dusty bookshops in search of the tome. Instead, his quarry comes to him...in the arms of a man claiming to be a vampire doctor! Thrust into a conflict that threatens the peace between humans and vampires, will Noé cast in his lot with the curious and slightly unbalanced Vanitas and his quest to save vampirekind?

Mochizuki (Pandora Hearts, Crimson-Shell) launched the manga in Gangan Joker in December 2015. Square Enix published the 11th volume on April 22.

BONES' television anime of the manga premiered in July 2021. The anime's second part premiered in January 2022. Funimation streamed the first part, and it also streamed an English dub. Both Funimation and Crunchyroll streamed the second part as it aired, and Crunchyroll also added the first part.
