On Monday, the Twitter handle for the popular manga “The Vampire Dies in No Time” by Itaru Bonnoki shared an update regarding the manga’s status. The post revealed that the ongoing hiatus of the manga would be prolonged for an unspecified duration due to the creator’s deteriorating health. As a result, the manga’s return date is yet to be determined, but readers can expect an announcement from Akira Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine when the decision is made.

After taking a break from March 30 to April 27, the manga was set to make a comeback on May 11. However, due to the creator’s declining physical condition, the hiatus has been extended without a specified timeline.

On April 26, the creator of the popular manga “The Vampire Dies in No Time,” Itaru Bonnoki, revealed on his official Twitter account that he would be taking a break to recuperate. In his statement, he mentioned that he would make a return only after his stomach recovers and he’s able to relish a Burger King Whopper.

The manga has a history of hiatus

Over the past few years, the manga has gone on hiatus several times, with some of the breaks being attributed to the creator’s well-being.

In June 2015, Bonnoki introduced “The Vampire Dies in No Time” to the public through Weekly Shōnen Champion. The manga’s latest volume, the 25th in the series, was recently released on Monday by Akita Shoten.

In October 2021, the inaugural season of the anime adaptation premiered in Japan, and Funimation streamed the episodes as they aired. The first season consisted of 12 episodes, while the second season was launched on January 9. Currently, the anime can be streamed on Crunchyroll.

The manga has inspired a game

An upcoming “hyper casual game” app called Sugu Shinu! (Die Instantly!) for iOS and Android in 2023 is being developed based on the manga’s theme. The game is expected to be launched in English in foreign markets.

The manga creators, Bonnoki and Nata Ōkura, collaborated on a new project, the manga adaptation of Xemono’s Needy Streamer Overload game. The manga, titled Needy Girl Overdose: Run with My Sick, was published on Akita Shoten’s Manga Cross website on March 21, using the original Japanese title of the game.

As of now, there have been no updates regarding any hiatus plans for the Needy Girl Overdose: Run with My Sick manga.
