Ruri Aoki - RuriDragon

Manga RuriDragon pauses due to creator’s health

Nearly two months after appearing in Weekly Shonen Jump, new chapters for RuriDragon are on hold while creator Masaoki Shindo takes a break due to unspecified health issues.

The announcement was made in Weekly Shonen Jump No. 35 which was published on Monday, August 1st, 2022 in Japan.

A note was also shared to Shindo’s personal Twitter account.

Dear readers, thank you for continued patronage of RuriDragon.

Due to Masaoki Shindo’s poor health, RuriDragon will be on hiatus from this issue.

I took a break from Weekly Shonen Jump No. 33 and searched for a sustainable form of writing while dealing with my physical condition. I decided that it would be better to recover so that serialization of the manga can continue.

A date for the return will be announced in a future issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. We are very sorry to all the readers who have been looking forward to reading.

I will do my best to bring Ruri’s days to life again and would appreciate if you keep watch over me.

Thank you for your continued support of RuriDragon.

Masaoki Shindo, creator of RuriDragon

Ruri Aoki is just like any other young girl, except that she wakes up one morning with a pair of dragon’s horns on her head! Once boring days at school have turned Ruri into the centre of attention as she struggles to understand why she’s half-human half-dragon!

RuriDragon initially appeared as a one-shot in Shueisha’s Jump Giga magazine, it began serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump No. 26 which was published on June 13th, 2022.

In North America, RuriDragon is available translated in English by Viz Media.

We wish Masaoki Shindo a full and speedy recovery.
