Kannagi Cessation “No Connection at All” with Otaku Excess

In news which may come as a relief to Kannagi fans, though which still leaves open the unhappy issues of what ails Kannagi mangaka Eri Takenashi and whether the official explanation is accurate, the editorial staff of ComicREX have explicitly denied that the hysterical otaku reaction to the issue of Nagi’s virginity had anything to do with the manga indefinitely ceasing publication.

Their denial is strongly worded, but fails to provide any details:

“The author’s health is in a bad way, and she can no longer write. If she recovers, we may hear an explanation from her.”

“There is no connection whatsoever with the recent disturbances.”

They are also unable to confirm receiving any threatening protests from otaku.

It must of course be said that the chances of them acknowledging otaku related trouble if it were the cause seem rather low (in fact completely implausible), however an explicit denial certainly carries some weight and simple illness seems perhaps the most plausible explanation.

Still, yet again failing to issue any substantive reason is not the most effective PR move which could be made. An explanation from Takenashi herself may be forthcoming, although again few would expect her either to admit to an otaku connection if it were the case.

Once again it seems wishing Takenashi a speedy recovery is the only course left open to fans…

Since the freakin' otakus can't even wait until the next issue, they can now go fuck themselves.

And another thing, when something "original" is happening in the manga, they rage. Come on! At least this is a chance for something to have originality and stop being "cliche".
