The April issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine announced on Thursday that Sōta Kuwahara's Kurenai Ōji (Crimson Prince) manga will go on indefinite hiatus beginning with the current issue due to a decline in the author's health. The editorial staff of the magazine apologized to readers who were looking forward to reading the manga.
The magazine also notes that the scheduled February release of the manga's 17th compiled book volume has also been delayed indefinitely, and advises readers that further announcements will be made in the magazine.
The manga's story begins when Kōjirō Sakura, a demon prince, goes to the human world to take human souls. He ends up meeting a girl, Hana Koumeda, and living with her, and who begins to change his heart.
Kuwahara launched the manga in Monthly Shonen Gangan in 2007, and the manga inspired a drama CD. Square Enix published the 16th compiled book volume of the manga on August 22.
