    I knew there will be extra pages for this! That will allow this not only to be a transitional chapter but also something more will be added! It is good to know that we have a date and all but I still can not wait!

    Well according to Mangaupdates it was the group TDX that did the last chapters. If they pick it up again it will be great, though over the years the manga has had different scan groups doing it.

    Ok info about the scans, from TDX scans livejournal:

    Quote Quote:
    This Thursday should be an epic day. Liar Game returns with a 37 page chapter. Yes, we'll still do it. Actually, we're all eager to resume working on it. And if spoilers for ch139 surface before the actual chapter shows up, I'll post them here.

    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    Can somebody tell me why the hiatus started in the first place? Was the author just taking a break?

    It's not clear...he goes on breaks frequently...this time it was supposed to be a year break, so that he could expand his team, and start working together...I dunno...what I know is that he hired 2 new assistants in the process

    It can not be blamed on him for taking the breaks though, he wants to make the games as great as he can, unlike other manga this has to fit well into the story, not the plot but the whole game has to make sense, each little knot has to tie in well as for them to have a conclusion. This is similar to how Agatha Christie worked on her stories and novels.

    Not to mention he still has another manga to work on... Did he take a break from that one? The "Reinoryokusha Odakiri Kyoko no Uso"

    That Reinouryokusha should restart next spring. Current ones are Liar Game and Winner's Circle e Youkoso (Link: MH, JumpX).

    If it was short breaks, I could agree with you, but a break as long as the one taken is not done to plan the future of the series. Yes, he could have planned 200+ chapters into the future, but that would have been a terrible tactical choice since the longer he extended the hiatus, the more likely the series flops when it returns. One month, two month breaks every so often make a lot more sense.

    If I had to say, I'd say the author really isn't emotionally committed to the series. Professionally, he has to continue it, and do a good job at that, but that break just screams not caring to me.

    picking up new series over the break is what should scream to you he isn't in love with or fully committed to LG

    Yes I agree, this break was certainly not ordinary, it took one and a half year for the series to return, I do not think anyone has had a longer break in recent time? At least form the known series that I know take hiatuses a lot like Berserk and HxH. Hopefully he has the motivation as well, this break was long because of that, but I do think the quality of his manga will not drop with this return, what we will see will be a product of a good planned story that he was working on for months.

    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    He might have planned to end the series back then, but the manga became popular dramas (2 seasons) and a movie. The actor who plays Akiyama's role is so popular in Japan right now that they probably wanted to make a sequel. (New Liar Game movie will be released on March 3rd, 2012.) I am not sure if his reason for restarting the series is marketing driven, but it sure makes sense for him to restart the manga now, a few months before the movie release date.

    Vagabond's hiatus length is up there. Also you could add up all Togashi's long hiatus' for HxH and they would probably be longer.
