Aka Akasaka's message to fans

In the letter, Akasaka expressed his regret for the hiatus, saying, “I feel sick awhile ago, and after discussing it with those involved, I am taking a month-long break. I apologize for taking [the month] off. As of writing this message, I am back at full health and eager to deliver to the best of my ability. I will continue to do my best moving forward, and I hope you'll look forward to the series' return after their break. I would also like to say thanks to Mengo and 5mm for kindly agreeing to the hiatuses.”

While the main Oshi no Ko story will be on hold until September 14th, fans need not fret. Akasaka has organized an engaging interlude. Instead of Akasaka', Mengo will take the reins, crafting special chapters that delve into side stories within the Oshi no Ko universe. These chapters promise to keep fans entertained and immersed in the world of the beloved idol manga.
