According to Comic REX magazine, Takenashi Eri's manga "Kannagi" will be withheld from publication for some while due to the ill health of the author. It's unknown when the manga will resume publication.

Edited on Dec 9th=================
The editors of Comic REX magazine officially denied that the suspension of the manga was related to the fans' disturbance. They explained that the sickness of the author was the sole reason for the suspension. Before this official statement, Yuukan Fuji newspaper and ITmedia have already reported that some fanatic fans of Kannagi made the author stop publication.

Edited on Dec 11th=================
According to Minekura Kazuya's (the author of "Saiyuki") blog, Takenashi Eri cannot get out of the bed due to the illness.
The official website announced that the illustrator of the DVD storage box(, which is the extra item bundled with Kannagi DVD volume 3 Limited Edition) will be switched from Takenashi Eri to Kadowaki Satoshi (the graphic art director of Kannagi).

The surgery was successful and she is getting better now. Eri sensei is still in the hospital but she is eager to resume publication as soon as possible.

spoiler warning!
In the episode 36, it turned out that
Some of the fans raged about it and they harshly criticized the author. It's not certain that the suspension of the manga is related to the disturbance caused by the fans.

Note: I'd like to clarify this. Eri-sensei is "she" not "he".

I'd be pissed off if those damn otaku did actually cause any harm to a guy writing his own story, that's just going too far.

I hope the author gets well enough to resume the story. Don't want another Juuni Kokki. :(

The words "bad physical condition" make it seem like she got beat up by a bunch of angry otaku, rather than he just got sick.

Seriously though, the timing of this is too good to be a mere coincidence.

This is just... unbelievable. I can't believe a bunch of otaku can cause something like this. I'm not saying I'm a rabid Kannagi fan, or anything, but this is just shocking. I hope the author gets well, though.

The thought of otaku going mental over something is one thing, but going mental over what dtshyk spoiler-tagged is just too funny and illuminating of otaku-dom in general.

I chuckled. And it might be even possible. ;D Though I am not happy about it. Bad otakus, bad.

foad. If you don't like it, don't read it. No need to condemn it just because you don't care for it.

Very funny. Doesn't the name "Eri" gives away that the sensei is female? More over, to suspend the publishing of a manga over fan disturbance is usually very unlikely, since it is a very common trivial thing to begin with.



That leaves the only reason which is that the author is in an unhealthy state. Hope she recovers soon!

Whether the author is sick or this was caused by otaku fan-rage, it's too bad to see a quality manga put on hold. Hopefully Kannagi will be back in publication soon!

Quite sad, as a fan of the anime this is rather distressing news. Hope it's nothing serious, and the manga will be continuing shortly.

1) I hope she gets better. I would really hate for this story to just stop.

2) I hope that we (as in the English speaking public) can get caught up on the backlog of scanlating these issues ;)

lol, they say she's in "bad physical condition"

just think about it, the timing is too coincidental for her to fall ill from a cold. More than likely, she was jumped by a bunch of angry otaku.

There's no proof that Takenashi was attacked by otaku. Either way, Kannagi will continue, just wait!

Aside from that, the Kannagi anime is undisturbed.

rating is nothing but a reflection of ignorance and mainstream-ness of the show.

The usual shonen trash like naruto and bleach also score ~8. Does it make it the best thing ever? No.

Unoriginal stuff always tends to get good ratings(Haruhi?) because it has something to appease the mainstream public, instead of being original :)

I've always given the Nippon otaku the benefit of the doubt, but this clearly illustrates that they are bad people who force creators to concede to them in everything or else they won't give them money. They're trolls. And you know, looking back on so many examples of romance series hailed by otaku, suddenly I understand why we never see anything beyond a kiss and an acknowledgement that the main couple is dating in the end. It's because people like these will rage if their "waifu" is tainted in any way.

This is why Fate can't have a Nanoha-waifu! ZETSUBOU-SHITA!

Get better Eri-sensei.

And what's with this thread turning into a 'let's flame Kannagi'fest. I've never understood the need to go into a thread and just moan about how much you hate an anime/manga; unless it's a hate thread.

There'sonly about 2-3 haters here. They just are more annoying then the ones doing possitive comments.

Funny, because you give Code Geass a 10 despite it being an obvious mating of Gundam and Death Note.

This is awful news. I don't read the manga, but I love the anime. This would be horrible if otaku did attack her. Horrible and pathetic.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

"Unoriginal stuff always tends to get good ratings"
Haha what a hypocrite.
In your list:
Evangelion = 10
Gundam 00 = 10
Code Geass = 10
Zeta Gundam = 10

All of which are mainstream shows that appeal to the masses, yet you claim shows like Haruhi & Kannagi which have a more niché fandom are far more unoriginal.

Oh how badly do you fail sir, oh.

It's just a manga, who cares if this Nagi person had an ex-boyfriend?

I really could care less if the manga continued or not, but I guess I hope it does because there are people here that enjoy it.

What the fuck is a waifu?

Focus

I don't care what the actual facts of the case are. I'm going to assume that the author is a busty woman with giant lips and a naughty twinkle in her eye...who was subsequently gang raped, tied up, and humiliated in all sorts of ways by her angry fans.

Fits my perception of Nippon more adequately that way.

well, i dont get it, how does Nagi had a ex-boyfriend? didn't Jin carved Nagi out of the sacred wood? Who was his ex-boyfriend? another piece of wood or another god? i didnt read the manga but that is how it happend on the anime
