Vagabond Manga Goes on Hiatus

Historical manga Vagabond, considered an epitome of the samurai genre, will be going on a 4-month hiatus. This was announced at the end of the latest chapter by mangaka Takehiko Inoue.

According to the note, the hiatus is due to lack of time. Inoue-sensei needs it to do more research on the subjects he’s writing on and about other things. In addition to “research”, however, “other things” were also given as a reason for the break.

The 4-month-long hiatus will end on 19th June when the 29th issue of the magazine will come out. The last time Vagabond went on a longer break was in 2010 when the author was having health issues and it took him more than 2 years to get back to writing and drawing the story of Miyamoto Musashi.

  1. Ahh… Look the new samurai-related post and see what’s the reason (Hakuouki): Inoue has finally understood this world is not worthy of his work.
