    New Chapter status?

    Just thought I'd drop by and see if anything has happened over the last few months since I last posted. As I kinda expected, Takaya still hasn't delivered any new content. My only guess is that maybe his editors are having a back and forth with him and Takaya's being stubborn. Of course, I have no basis for that conclusion, but working in the industry I certainly hear stories about creators and editors falling out... Maybe he'll finish, maybe he won't. It's certainly not guaranteed either way unfortunately...

    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

    "Blocking" a thread

    Ahh damn it, that's a real shame... Guess i'll just have to put up with it then. Thanks anyway!

    "Blocking" a thread

    Just a question but is it possible to block or hide a thread on this forum? Every time I drop by, there's a particular thread that's constantly updated and annoys the crap out of me. (I'm not gonna say which one) If I can "hide" it that would be awesome. Is that even possible?

    New Chapter status?

    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.

    Just dropped by the book store on the way home today and YES!! .....there is no Guyver chapter. You're welcome.

    New Chapter status?

    Nope, nothing. I just realized that you can do the "look inside" on amazon and check out the contents page which is pretty useful: https://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/B079ZLH79M/kadokawaace01-22/ Next month's cover is also not Guyver so that may mean nothing next month too (going by the logic that after 2 years of nothing, they might give the Guyver a cover to mark it's return.) I hope his plastic figure work and dentist surgery is going well though...

    New Guyver Figma's

    I wonder if Figma can do a release of the next chapter of the manga? That would be nice...

    I saw it in the bookstore yesterday and picked it up to check out the contents page and, yep, nothing.

    Was this tweet recent? I've not checked twitter in ages...

    New Chapter status?

    This is the monthly ritual now isn't it? Haha! All we can do is laugh. No amount of bellyaching is gonna get this serialized any sooner. He's lost interest and is finding it hard to motivate himself to carry it on I reckon. I'd just forget it about if I were you. (Completely contradictory of course since I keep checking back here every month myself.)

    Petition to finish the Guyver anime

    You should start a petition calling for Takaya to end the manga instead. Overseas publishers ain't going anywhere near the Guyver until it's finished. Fact. I admire your dedication to the cause though... EDIT: Oh wait, you're talking about the anime. Doh!

    Still nothing, huh? Another month of silence it is then....

    New Chapter status?

    To echo the sentiments of others, yes, this is indeed getting tedious now. It's gotten to the point now where I can't even be bothered to check if he's actually done anything each month. The guy's got no excuse for his silence on the project. Sorry but, "busy with action figures" just isn't a good enough reason anymore. Shame.

    New Chapter status?

    Aye that I did. As expected, despite me messaging them in Japanese, I got no reply at all. I think, if Takaya just said "Sorry but I'm gonna be busy for a year", I wouldn't mind in the slightest. It's just that he and Kadokawa are being totally silent and not even letting us know what's going on. That's what annoys me. If he cared about his fanbase, he would reach out in some way. He doesn't though. There's no defending the guy, he should say something. Period.
