Why was the series on a hiatus?

The manga went on hiatus after the authors needed a break so that they could recuperate and think about more ideas for the series as well as what direction they wanted to take the storyline in.

The series went on a break from 18th July 2021 and is set to return on 9th August 2021. Comic Book says that Boiichi, the illustrator for the series, needed some additional time in order to “do some much-needed research ahead of the next chapter” as some of the storylines and concepts are becoming more and more complex. Fans can read a breakdown of the hiatus here.
