Eri Takenashi after resting for almost 2 years is returning to continue the manga, Kannagi. The break caused by an outbreak of illness which led to her going through a surgery in December 2008 and then her rest from January 2009.
The new chapters of Kannagi will be out this October on the November issue of the Comic REX magazine. Kannagi have already released 6 volume of compiled chapters with 2 million printed.
It’s interesting to note thou, during the time when Eri Takenashi is ill, there is also a wind of bad feeling blowing over the series, with hardcore Otakus finding a scene of Nagi pregnant in the manga as Nagi’s unfaithfulness, and not a virgin. This matter caused quite an out roar and then the Eri Takenashi just went on a break.
How the fanbase would react and whether if the incident have affected Kannagi’s popularity is still a unknown. Btw, did you know Eri sensei’s brother also released a series named Kanpachi, a spin off from the Kannagi also published under Comic Rex.
