But Rocky wanted to fight.

What do you do if the creator doesn't care anymore?

One of us needs to win the lottery, buy up all the licences that are causing problems, and just give them back to Takaya in a neatly wrapped up care-basket so he can do whatever he wants to do with the series again with no hassle.

Maybe he has really bad writers block and gave up.

Or maybe it's the thing we already found out, that there are legal/licensing issues.

I'm not exactly up-to-date with the manga but I have kept my eye on the situation for a while. It seems strange that it would be legal/licensing issues as last I checked he owned the rights to Guyver still -- just had an agreement with Kadokawa to publish in Shounen Ace.

I never heard of anything changing in regards to that. Unless the legal issue is Kadokawa not wanting to continue and he's locked into a situation where they hold the rights to publication. Might have to do some digging.

It is very likely to do with his late work partner.
It turns out he had a partner for a long time, there is some indication of him having a partner back when the first guyver movie was made.
Alas there was a death a couple of years ago, of his most recent partner, probably the same person.
If that is the case, then it makes sense, as that partner would have possibly owned a portion of the rights of guyver.
Those rights may have passed to the family. of course in Japanese culture, that might be a very difficult situation to deal  with.

This is not confirmed, it is speculation.
