It seems that Eri Takenashi, the creator of Kannagi, is critically ill:

The health of Kannagi mangaka Eri Takenashi is apparently in exceedingly dire straits, with possible consequences far graver than an indefinite hiatus for her popular manga.

The latest news comes by way of statements made by mangaka 峰倉かずや / Kazuya Minekura (Saiyuki) on her blog; in wishing her well, she says “At the current time she can’t even move her body”. Alarming indeed.

This is really bad news for us fans of the popular series, Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens, and just when the series is about to attract more fans and starting to do really well. Something like this happens. I really hope that she will get well soon.


Then, I thought of another series that is also in the same situation, what happened to d.gray-man? At least, we recieve news that Eri Takenashi is recovering from surgery. But what about d.gray-man creator Katsura Hoshino, and there have been absolutely no news of her. The series has been on hiatus for weeks already. I really worry for her and I also hope that she will get well soon. D.gray-man is really one of my favourite anime and it is the anime that inspired to become a full-fledged otaku. This is the series that intoduced me to the world of anime. So Please dun take my sunshine away!

All in all, I wish both authors a speedy recovery and pick up your pens again! Keep up the good work  and Best Wishes!
