What's the deal with later chapters (around 90 or so) having so many panels that are un-inked pencil sketches? Are the non-tankobon chapters some kind of secret leak or something? I've never seen this happen with a manga before.

I notice the same thing, but given the irregular release, I think the author doesn't seem to have much time for the manga, maybe due to health issues?
I saw similar pencil sketchings in Hunter X Hunter a few years ago, which could be fixed for the tankobon version.

Guess that some famous authors are entitled to privileged treatment. :)

Iwaaki fixes it for volume releases. For some reason he isn't able to finish the backgrounds for magazine releases.

I didn't expect such quick replies. I thought this manga was kind of secret, lol

It's kind of weird that the official magazine releases are in a semi-complete state. Not that I'm complaining but it's interesting that they're partially inked rather than wholly sketched or something.
