Mangaka Higa Aloha
has announced in her official Twitter account that the serialization of "Shirokuma Café
" on Monthly Flowers magazine has gone into hiatus for an indefinite period. She disclosed that she has been left out of the TV anime project of "Shirokuma Cafe
" and she hasn't received any written contracts regarding the anime. After she notified the editors of the magazine that she would suspend the serialization of the manga, they apologized to her and promised to let her supervise the character designs and the scripts of the anime.
According to the updates on her Twitter, she finally had a meeting with the anime producers and found the anime staff have not done anything wrong. The main reason for the trouble was that the editors of Flowers magazine had been giving approvals to the character designs and the scripts of the anime without the author's permission. She said she thanked the anime staff for making such a high-quality anime but the serialization of the manga will be suspended for the time being.
