This year's 23rd issue of Weekly Young Jump announced on Thursday that Takehiko Inoue's seinen basketball manga Real will resume its serialization after approximately four and a half years on hiatus. The manga will resume in the magazine's 25th issue on May 23.

Real began as an irregular serialization in Weekly Young Jump in October 1999. Inoue had placed the manga in hiatus in November 2014. Shueisha shipped the 14th volume (pictured) in December 2014. The manga has over 14 million copies of its compiled volumes in print.

VIZ Media licensed the manga in English under its VIZ Signature imprint in November 2007 and published the first volume in July 2008. The 14th volume went on sale in March 2016.

Real received an Excellence Award at the 5th Japan Media Arts Festival Awards in 2001.

The manga's resumption was announced as one of the seven projects commemorating the 40th anniversary of Young Jump, which began as a bi-weekly magazine in May 1979 and has been published weekly since 1981.

Best manga of all time ...
So I guess rumour that said that Inoue doesn/t want to make manga anymore is wrong right ? Vagabond still has hope too ...

one step in time, seeing how he hasn't tweeted anything since April showcases he hard at work, this great news and seeing this i think probability Vagabond being back is higher.

After 4 and a half years... damn! Glad to have this one back, and hopefully he ends it before going back on hiatus... and maybe he can finish Vagabond too.

NICE I haven't read it yet tbh but this is great because
1) this manga that may be great and that I'll read won't remain unfinished
2) it means takehiko inoue might eventualy take back vagabond which I fucking LOVE
nice news from great mangaka

This might be a reason to finally pick it up, provided it won't go back on hiatus again.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

based inoue nothing finishing vagabond again. at least we might get real done before vagabond.
A: No. but to sum up, This is either real or a transcedental hypersimulation indistinguishable from reality.
Q: how to tell the difference ?
A: wait for the power to fail. it always does.

i'm saying neither of them is more important to be finished first because they essentially started at the same time

he's gunna do whichever one he wants
