Takehiko Inoue’s manga masterpiece Vagabond has been on hiatus since chapter 300 which was published on July 29th.
The series was scheduled to return on September 2nd but Inoue announced on his blog on monday that new chapters of the series will be delayed as he watches over his health.
Based upon older posts on his blog it seems that Inoue had been feeling ill for quite some time. Inoue had announced back in 2009 that Vagabond had entered its final arc and would be concluding sometime this year but due to the delays the finale will not be published until next year.
Personally, Inoue should take off as much time as he needs. I am in no rush to see this series conclude and I hope for his health to recover soon.
