Anyone any news, I have heard nothing, not even the reason of the stop.

Nothing, still check the evening kodansha website every bi weekly to check updates and there is nothing. No reason or explanation of why there is a hiatus, could be a coronavirus related reason who knows best way to deal with this hiatus is to think about other things

I do believe if it would be covid-19 they would say so. And there are other manga are coming out. But when there are no news for long time, is time to worry.

Maybe Kishiro died.

Let's not joke like that, please!

Anyway, I've just made another round of research and the only bit of info I found is the Japanese edition of the 7th volume of Mars Chronicle changing its release date twice: first from May 22th to June 23rd, and now from June 23rd to September 23rd. I scrolled through Evening's tweets, and there's no mention of Alita nor Kishiro in their tweets from June and May.

For now I choose to blame the pandemic as well as hope for the best. Being a fan of less popular and/or less frequently released stuff is a waiting game even in normal circumstances, anyway.

I also found this. Can't believe they actually replied! Though I'm pretty sure the reply would be the same if they actually had plans to release the anime.

Jokes apart, can't be only the Covid situation which is mostly over in asia and europe. There would be updates anyway, Kishiro could have drawn panels from home even with no assistants.

I wouldn't go as far as to say it's over. More like... stabilized. At least in my corner of Europe.

What if he has/had the virus? He's a very private person; would the public know if he was sick/recovering? Or if someone close to him was sick or even died? And we do know he had some depressive episodes. Having depression doesn't gel well with the pandemic, at least from a couple of my friends' and my experience.

All this aside, I have a feeling he's stuck and/or going through a writer's block.

I used to visit Yukito's blog from time to time but cannot remember the url now...
Does anyone went there to check ? It was mostly about his dog lately but there might be some info in that.

That's what i meant, Silverly. Something might have happened directly to Kishiro (or his personal circle). It cannot be just "there is the lock down, i can't go to my studio".

no i think this is the site where kishiro his thoughts in japanese http://yukitolog.blogspot.com/. Though he hasn't updated it since March. Not even an update on his birthday which is surprising as he always blogs about his birthday. I wish there was more transparency on why there is a hiatus, even an unforeseeable circumstance reason would suffice but we get no word on the reason.
