June issue of Kodansha, Good! Afternoon magazine revealed on Friday that Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka’s Grand Blue Dreaming manga will go on hiatus and will return in June, due to one of the authors being hospitalized due to a sudden emergency. The notice noted that the author was recovering, but did not mention which of the manga’s authors had been hospitalized, or the cause of hospitalization.
The manga recently resumed after a two-month hiatus on March 4, after Inoue suffered back pain from overwork.
Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga and it describes the story:
After moving out on his own to a seaside town, Iori Kitahara has a college debut he never expected. A new chapter of his life opens, filled with pretty girls and pranks with a bunch of adorable bastards! Big idiot Kenji Inoue and manager Kimitake Yoshioka bring you a glorious college story filled with booze-filled antics!
Inoue and Yoshioka launched the manga in Kodansha magazine Good! Afternoon in April 2014. Crunchyroll is also releasing the manga’s chapters as they launch in Japan.
The manga inspired a television anime that premiered in July 2018. Amazon Prime Video streamed the anime worldwide as it aired. The series also got a Live action adaptation in Japan in August 2020.
