Sousou no Frieren is suspended again

Fans of "Sousou no Frieren (Frieren: Beyond Journey's End)" have been dealt an unexpected blow with the news of an indefinite suspension in the manga series. Frieren has become, without a doubt, one of the biggest anime franchises in recent years. The story's accessibility, combined with its stunning visuals and animation courtesy of Madhouse Studios, have made it a huge hit with fans and critics alike, and that's unlikely to change in the near future.

The "Sousou no Frieren" manga, of course, is just as good as the anime, and some unfortunate news just surfaced about it. Like many manga, "Frieren" is currently on hiatus for Golden Week, but it has been announced that after returning from Golden Week, "Sousou no Frieren" will go on an indefinite hiatus.

Sousou no Frieren is suspended again

The exact reasons behind the pause are unknown. The "Sousou no Frieren" manga has gone on hiatus many times before, so fans of the manga are used to it, but it could come as a shock to those who started following the story after the anime's explosive success. The hiatus will begin after the episode that will come out on May 8. There is no confirmed return date for the manga, but fans shouldn't take it too badly, as this has already happened in the past, and Frieren has always returned.

It's still unfortunate, especially considering that the anime's second season hasn't been announced yet either, but with a story as good as "Sousou no Frieren," the wait will surely be worth it.

This situation raises concerns about the future of anime. With the manga progressing at a slower pace due to its frequent pauses, the material available for a possible second season is reduced. While it's understandable that the authors and editorial team need time to develop the story properly, this situation can also affect the chances of continuing the series in the future.
