The manga Shadows House by so-ma-to is going on a brief hiatus this summer, as revealed by the new issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump. A reason has not been given, so hopefully there is nothing wrong with the creators’ health. Weekly Young Jump said that the manga will resume August 26.
The manga has not yet been licensed in America. Funimation streams the anime adaptation, and it gave this description of the story:
“High atop a cliff sits the mansion known as Shadows House, home to a faceless clan that pretends to live like nobles. They express their emotions through living dolls that also endlessly clean the home of soot. One such servant, Emilico, aids her master Kate as they learn more about themselves and the mysteries of the house.”
