In the official Twitter account for El Manga written by Kenji Inoue and illustrated by Kimitake Yoshioka, Grand Blue (Grand Blue Dreaming), it was announced that the work will not have a new chapter in the sixth edition of this year of Good Magazine! Afternoon, due to the health problems of the writer. It should be noted that the manga has gone through several pauses for the same reason recently.
The statement reported that the work will resume at the seventh edition of this year of the magazine, scheduled for next June 7 in Japan. It was also noted that the launch of the collector volume number 17, which was scheduled for this month, has been delayed until at least next August.
Inoue and Yoshioka began the publication of the manga in Good Magazine! Afternoon of the Kodansha publisher in April 2014. The work inspired an adaptation to the Anime of twelve episodes produced by the Studies Zero-G, under the direction and scripts written by Shinji Takamatsu, released in July 2018. So far there is no indication of a second season.
