New Chapter status?

We just want new Guyver manga, period.

Yeah, Matt's right. The problem is the creator is too busy/lazy to draw anymore chapters. It's sad but he's human after all. we all lose interest in stuff from time to time. maybe this long-ass break is allowing him the room he needs to get excited about his creation again. Or maybe not. Who knows?

My beef has never been the break to be honest. What annoys me about the hiatus is Takaya's silence on WHY he's not done drenn in so long. He owes it to his fans to at least say something on the matter. He doesn't need to go into any details. Just a simple "Hi guys, sorry about the break. I'm alive and well and look forward to releasing more chapters as soon as I can" kinda thing would be all that's needed to put the minds of his devoted fanbase at ease. That's all. Yet he hasn't which, to me, is just plain unprofessional.

Yeah that too.

I was reading a manga called World Trigger, which has been on hiatus since November 2016... but we know why. the creator is very sickly and the stress  of deadlines was killing him. So we're not really expecting much at all, if ever.

But absolute silence as to why Takaya is not releasing new chapters is just not right. Even if it was "Creator is taking a break to relax" would be something.

 Surely the franchise could use a little more than a manga that goes in numerous extended hiatus though, right?

He should  just  let someone take over like Akira did with dragonball at least we got  gt until  he was ready to  do super. Say what you want about  gt but It gave us ssj4 and even more importantly it inspired Akira to  finish the  story. That's my biggest fear with guyver that the author passes before he  finishes the story you know he was sick. Just look at bleach. They finished the manga but not the anime now you  still got  people waiting for  them to  finish the anime. Hell least kubo finish the  manga with guyver we might not get a finished manga or anime. We still don't know what the  creators are even apollon

Well at least Miura is getting his crap together. One miracle at a time I guess.

I'm getting to the point of sending Yoshiki Takaya a clip of Striker's rap from the first Guyver movie.

...That's how bad this is feeling to me right now.

I've gotta say it, but... I'm kinda done with it all now. Life's too short and if Takaya wants to focus on anything BUT his manga that's just fine with me. I'm gonna go read other stuff and who knows, maybe this manga will someday resume in a couple of years time? Either way, until then, I'm gonna peace out. Have fun guys and thanks for the monthly gags on this thread! Hahah

just me thinking out loud, but i honestly feel that perhaps takaya is waiting out the publishing contract?

(noticed with the prime1 figures that their licensed by the publisher but not endorsed by takaya, unlike the maxfactory figures.)

Really, after all these years?

I dunno, maybe he signed a ****ty deal with Kadokawa and gets paid peanuts and never realised the potential, or the licensing revenue that the publishers have been pocketing.

Maybe he's on strike pending a contract negotiation and can't legally publish his manga through any other media outlet. Maybe it's a Lil Wayne & Cash Money scenario!

Maybe he's under a non-disclosure agreement to mitigate against reputational defamation.

Whatever it is, I really hope it gets sorted.................rant over :)

My god this is sad. 

We're so close to the end of the series. And here we sit, simply wondering where and when it'll all end. 

This is by far the longest and most brutal hiatus. That is, if we're still assuming he'll return to finishing the manga.

At this point, ANY update would be a relief.  Why keep everyone in the dark for this long?

I wonder if there is anybody else that could/would take up the mantle? Akira Toriyama has a manga slave for Super, surely Takaya wouldn't scoff at that idea...

He did advertise for an assistant a few years ago, but we heard nothing about it afterwards. From what it understand, he's a difficult person to work with, so it might not work out anyway!

There have been a few photos floating around the forum. It looks awesome, but we'll out of my price range, I'm afraid. :cry:

Yeah, they are really pricey. I set aside funds for the prime 1 guyver1 though. Put a pre order in. When available in will snag it! And then I think my collection will be pretty much complete. For a while anyways.

I usually go here, the to Relax Point. He always posts the cover of the issues when Guyver appears.

Been going there since 2005 since he had great pictures of the bio-fighter collection figures as they were being released.
