As the manga series came under the seinen community, which means that it is released on a weekly basis. This took a serious toll on Inoue’s physical and mental facilities due to which the manga series saw its first hiatus in the year 2010 and lasted for two years. In an interview with CNN, Inoue said that he only got to sleep 2-4 hours when the deadline was getting close. The series was resumed in March 2012, though it again entered another break in February 2014 which was only supposed to last for four months but was dragged out till January 2015.
The series once again entered a hiatus in May 2015. Inoue also writes and illustrates the very inspiring series Real which is based on the story of disabled basketball players. Sometimes Inoue had to work on both these masterpieces simultaneously which was the reason why he began to run on fumes. Real also entered a hiatus in 2014 and resumed in August 2019. This might indicate that we may finally be able to witness the decisive fight between sword master Musashi Miyamoto and Sasaki Kojirō the deaf swordsman and arch-rival of Musashi.
