Viz Confirms Inubaka on Hiatus

As I feared when I wrote about the next Inubaka volume disappearing from online sales outlets, the series is on hiatus. I received the following statement from a PR person:

INUBAKA is currently on hiatus and no new vols. are scheduled for the immediate future.

I appreciate them making a statement, although I do wish the news had been better.


  1. wow, this is a HUGE disappointment to me, though I wish they stated their reasoning behind the hiatus. If only the released vol 18 first, then be put it on hiatus. Well all there now is to wait, and wish that it’s on hiatus and not worse D: I really love this book series!

  2. I had asked this on another topic thread, but I’ll repeat it here:

    Off-topic, but does anyone know if a West Highland White Terrier or a Bichon Frise shows up over the course of the series?

  3. I don’t recall seeing either of those in a story, but there might have been a pinup or something I’m not recalling.

  4. I really want to see this series through to the end. Maybe they’ll have some digitally available content?

  5. Not sure about the white terrier, but a Bichon Frise plays a prominent role in volume 18…

  6. That would be the one that’s been cancelled? Way to rub it in! :) Seriously, thanks for answering that.

  7. […] the Final [Viz] Volume, with no plans to continue publication. I’d rather see that than an indefinite hiatus, which has much more uncertainty and disappointment attached, at least in my opinion. Gin Tama […]

  8. This really sucks especially for those of us who buy all the volumes and now we have an incomplete series.
