Manga Creator Itaru Bonnoki Taking Hiatus
Itaru Bonnoki, creator of the hit manga “The Vampire Dies In No Time,” has announced a short hiatus from producing his book. In an announcement made to Twitter this week, Bonnoki said he was putting his pen down for the time being. He did not cite the reason, but it’s implied to be a health thing — he said he needed to rest until his stomach was healthy enough to eat a Burger King Whopper. Yes, he specifically mentioned the Whopper.
“The Vampire Dies In No Time” was introduced in 2015 in the pages of Weekly Shonen Champion. It’s about the adventures of a vampire who is constantly on edge due to the fact that it wouldn’t take much to kill him, nor would it take long for him to die (“in no time” is specified in the title). The manga is popular for its humor, action and wild character designs.
Bonnoki is far from the only manga creator that has to take a break every now and then. Hunter x Hunter is made up of more breaks than regular issues by now, and there have been concerns about the health of Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece. Making manga is hard work!
“The Vampire Dies In No Time” is already in the middle of a hiatus, which began on March 30 and will end May 11. Fans should expect a second hiatus sometime in the near future. Last year Bonnoki had to take three.
