The official G Fantasy Twitter (X) account posted the announcement, stating that next month’s volume will be the last one before the hiatus. There is no information as to when the manga will start up again. During the hiatus, G Fantasy will have “re-runs” of Black Butler in which each magazine until its return will have older chapters from the series.

In a picture of Sebastian and Ciel on G Fantasy’s Twitter account, Toboso wrote that she wants to take a bit of a long break. Ever since she debuted as an artist and writer in 2004, she’s been working for twenty years. She stated that the reason she could draw and write for this long without taking any extended breaks was because of everyone’s kind words of support. She will take this opportunity to rest both her body and mind, and then prepare for Black Butler’s climax. At the end of the message, she promises that she’ll return at peak condition to continue the story.

Black Butler is an anime and manga series that came out in 2006. It takes place in Victorian-era London in which a boy named Ciel works as the Queen’s Watchdog—essentially a royal detective—with the help of his demon butler Sebastian. There have been several adaptations since it debuted, including the ongoing Public School Arc, and Sebastian in particular is popular with female fans.
