Good, she's resting. Her health is more important :']

Plus, fans - that includes myself - wants a 3rd anime series. And I really love this title. ;']
And, lastly, I can finally continue reading the manga and catch up to it. :'>

One year is a bit too much.

Have a nice rest! You deserve this after drawing such an amazing Manga.
Though that means chances of another Oofuri season become smaller. :c

snif snif!
I really hope she would get better!
I love Oofuri! <3

This is sad news. T__T A whole year...
But I agree, her health is definitly more important.
Take a good long rest, Higuchi-sensei, and get better soon. (:

Even though I've never read her works I hope she gets well soon.

this is for the better because if she becomes too sick to work on this manga she might end up with crap story lines for this series and besides taking a rest means she have no pressure on deadlines so she can formulate at least good story outlines if not full story lines too when she is on vacation

She should take care of her health first , that is good decision

Oofuri is one of the real gems out there. Get well soon and have a nice break to come up with more Nishiura-Nine awesomeness sensei!

This sucks. I started reading it recently and was surprised out how good it was. It's a pretty unique take on a baseball manga.

Dec 24, 2010 11:55 PM by BigJim4652

boo. This really is only mildly saddening though; Seeing that the reason is to take care of her health and give her a nice break, I'd say she deserves it. Writing a manga that also has an anime going on + a social life (family, friends, fans, possibly a second job) can be pretty hectic.

Does anyone have any idea what she's dealing with, though? I'd hate for it to be something extremely severe. The last thing I'd want is something like Cashdaxxx implied. We'd defiantly not be getting a 3rd season in that case unless the studio decided to do something original... I don't think it would really be 'Oofuri' anymore though. (Sorry if that sounds half assed, hm.)

Er, well, this gives me a chance to finally read the manga and be up to date with it. I could also watch the second season of the anime too, so yaaaaay.

Anyway, I hope she gets better and ends up having a great, fun yet relaxing year. Being ill royally sucks and can be a huge downer.

D=. Unfortunate, but Asa Higuchi's health is more important. Hope she get's well >_<.

I hope she gets well. I haven't read the manga, but the anime adaptations were a great watch.

Shota? *reads the manga*

Uh, no. More like borderline BL.

Dec 24, 2010 11:14 PM by Kokujin-kun

I've never read this manga before, nor have I heard of it but it seems like a nice manga.
Hope she recovers soon.
