oh Noes! Shugo Chara! on hiatus.

December 15, 2008

Cover of the first Opening/Ending single by Buono! from the anime adaptation of Shugo Chara

According to ANN, Shugo Chara!, along with Peach-Pit’s two other current serials Zombie-Loan and Rozen Maiden, are on hold because of health related causes; The article makes it seem that both of the artists are ill and not just one of them. Can’t say I’m surprised though….three serials at once? I mean, yeah there are two of them (and I’m assuming several assistants), but that’s still a lot. Seems a lot of artists are doing this nowadays though. Yuu Watase has like 4-5 serials going right now, one of which is weekly. Hiro Mashima has at least 2, if not more, serials also. I really don’t understand, it’s so much.

On another sad note, this means there will be no Shugo Chara! chapter in the February issue of Nakayoshi, that comes out on December 29, 2008 (even though Peach-Pit drew the cover). How sad! D: But I certainly wish Peach-Pit the best and hope they get better soon.

    Yuu Watase has 5 serials? D: Ohmygod, she’s killing herself! Truly I don’t understand when mangaka has at least 2 or 3 serials… It’s like killing themselves… .___. I’m kinda glad that Arina has only one serialization XD;.

    ok…maybe I was exaggerating a little. xD
    But she has Arata Kangatari (a weekly serial), Sakura Gari (I think it’s monthly), Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Kaiden (which runs randomly in Flowers? magazine), and she does all kinds of extra stuff like the illustrations for the Absolute Boyfriend novels, illustrations for other random novels, and illustrations for games and crap.
    D: It’s plain ridiculous.
