Initial D author Shuuichi Shigeno is currently serializing the MF Ghost manga, but it’s going to be taking a break for a while. According to the latest issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine, MF Ghost will be on an indefinite hiatus as a result of Shigeno’s poor health.
We’ll have to wait until the magazine announces an official return date.
Shigeno’s MF Ghost manga has a TV anime adaptation on the way in 2023. Kodansha USA publishes the manga—which first launched in the pages of Weekly Young Magazine in September 2017—and describes it below.
The author of Initial D has roared back onto the track with another hit! In a near future where cars have mostly switched over to sustainable power, combustion engine racing is a rarity. The MFG is the last major race for this dying breed, and half-Japanese Kanata Rivington has come back to try his luck. But that’s not all he’s come to Japan to do…he’s searching for his father, too. Can even the ambitious Kanata accomplish all he’s set out to do?
