I fell sick a while ago and after discussing it with the people involved, I took a month-long break. I apologize for taking a month off. As of writing this message, I am back to full health and ready to deliver to the best of my ability.
I will continue to do my best going forward, and I hope you’ll look forward to the series’ return after the break. I would also like to thank Mengo-sensei and 5mm-sensei for kindly agreeing to let our works go on hiatus.
