According to J-Cast, Josei Jishin magazine caught and interviewed Yazawa Ai when she returned home from the hospital. She said she is getting a lot better than before. "It's not an incurable disease. My doctor says it'll take long and I'll recover gradually." However, she also disclosed that she hasn't held a pen since she fell ill and the outlook for her return is still uncertain.

The serialization of NANA has been suspended since June 2009 due to Yazawa's illness. The name of the illness hasn't been revealed.

Omg, I really really hope this means she'll continue NANA. It is my favorite manga of all time, and the way it stopped.. augh. I really need to know what happens next. I'm even afraid of hoping in vain because aaaah I keep thinking about NANA even after these years and I will be so happy I'll probably cry if it continues.


The news and this thread are from 2010 and there's been nothing more of NANA 3 years later, so it's hilariously unlikely we'll ever get more.


We actually just got news about 2 months ago of her drawing a new Junko's room.
The link was posted on the previous page, but

If Yazawa draws a new Junko room chapter I guess she might get back to working on Nana.

I think Yazawa would not draw a new Junko room chapter for no reason.

I can't understand, why she don't speak about Nana continuation. So many years and She even not say if she will be write again, or she dropped Nana for ever. How bad she is feeling, that she even can't say one simply sentence for her fans all over the world. This is getting pathetic.


Agreed

There is still a lot of story left on Nana. If Yazawa-san is going to continue it, then I am expecting over 130 chapters.

Oh wow... It still seem like it was yesterday that I read Nana like a fangirl... Time sure pass fast.
I hope she'll be able to pick Nana up again VERY SOON!

This is fucking tragic. I hope she gets better whatever is going on with her, I wonder why there isn't anything new after ALL this time, like seriously.
NANA is really popular and I can only imagine that in japan a lot of interviewer or news or whatever wonder what is going on.

she must finish the manga, thats the least thing she could do 4 all of her fans who have supported her the whole time and praying for her comeback.

Thank God there is still hope. so glad to hear that she's ok.
embarrassed to say this but i was so nervous before i read this article :p cant wait till NANA returns

Sep 6, 2012 6:21 AM by alxk1237

She needs to get back to working on Nana... How can she let all her fans wait that long? :c

It sucks that we don't have more news about Yazawa-sensei, we'll have to keep on waiting, maybe I'll buy and read the mangas to get where she left :)

Ah, going to begin reading this manga soon as the anime is a masterpiece in my book.

I'm wondering if the volumes will ever continue to be published as I'm looking forward to it..

After all this time it really makes me question whether we'll ever get a conclusion to this great story :(
