Yukimura explained that both he and several family members had suddenly fallen seriously ill with what was eventually diagnosed by doctors to be a severe cold and not the flu or COVID-19 as initially feared.

He disclosed that his eldest son had developed an alarmingly high fever, reaching 102°F (39°C), which left Yukimura thinking, “That’s ridiculous!” even though the cause was determined to be viral rather than bacterial.

While the family is now recovering, Yukimura realized he urgently needs to prioritize his health and take better care of himself.

As a result, the next chapter is postponed until January 2024, meaning an excruciating two-month wait for eager fans who are following the dramatic story arc surrounding Thorkell’s daughter, Cordelia.
