it appears that a few of the mangas have not been updated in typical fashion. I do not blame any sites for this but rather the authors totally missing a publish date! so here it goes, the story of the time I met the manga author



I was with Goerge R.R Martin at the time, as he was writing the latest novel of his popular saga, game of thrones, he was even able to do some illustrations, which at the time I found strange for a novel. I asked him " you got an awesome book once more martin, when can I expect it to be finished?" George stood up, came towards me, and looked me dead in the eye "I'm gonna need about three months." at that point, the illustrations made sense and I put two and two together "goddang it, author! three months for another chapter! we work hard to meet our deadlines we don't give time away! you finish this chapter now you hear me!" the author took a step back, deep in thought and replied "two months" gasping in anger I shouted "two months! so you're in a rush now! the publish date is in two weeks!"

then the second time - I called the electrician to sort out some minor issues with some circuitry in the house, I asked him how quickly he could get it done - "I'm gonna need about three months" that's when I realised the electrician was rationing ramen and currently on a pen draft "goddang it author! I told a while ago I ain't got three month! I'm still waiting on the cliffhanger from the last chapter to be resolved! I'm watching how the anime resolves it ffs! if you don't have it tommorrow the publisher will have you out on your ass! learn what a deadline is!"

then there was the time I was abducted by aliens, whisked away into space in their interstellar craft. I was surprised by the level of advanced technology. curiously I asked "mr. alien, how long will it be till we get to your home planet?" after watching him operate a complex panel he said "about three months" that's when I noticed the spacecraft was filled to the brim with figurines of popular anime characters, and one too many dakimakura pillows....

I'm reading demi-human and inside marie. both seem to have missed the usual time they appear on CR at least twice now. I was reading scums wish, but I find it hard to get back in the mood for reading it. from what I've seen, CR is trying to find whole volumes of it or it really does have a semi - regular clusterfuck of a schedule

I don't so much mind the authors that walk to the beat of a different drum, so a few months behind... hell, even a year behind... and I don't mind as long as it doesn't drop out of existence. In Martin's case, I'm legitimately concerned that the books won't be wrapped up in his lifetime (and, thus, not wrapped up at all.) In the manga world, I get a bit annoyed by the phrase "on hiatus" (like the Loveless manga) and dread the phrase "on permanent hiatus" (High School of the Dead.) That is like one of the biggest "F-U's" you could give fans--"I'm not sure where I'm going with this anymore... I've lost interest... It's over."

Well there's a funny story to that. I was at my grandpa's when my little cousin came by saying that her imaginary friend was leaving for now. I asked when he was going to be back. She said "He's not sure, he's going on hiatus because of health problems, maybe three months". Well at that point I march into the playroom and inside who do I find but Yoshihiro Togashi, finishing up the final draft of the latest chapter.

And I say, "damn it Togashi! Leave my family alone and go finish HxH! The succession war arc is just about to kick into full swing. You can't blueball us like that!"
