The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Manga Cancelled Due To Author’s Poor Health

Writing a manga isn’t an easy job. The author not only has to come with an amazing plotline but has to also possess creative and artistic skillsets to amplify their work’s appeal. They have to make deadlines to please their audience and their boss! And once they get successful, they get the big responsibility of living up to expectations! However, all of this becomes null and void when our beloved mangakas begin losing their health.

That is exactly what happened to our beloved manga artist Kaya Haruko who serialized Shu’s light novel series The Misfit Of Demon King Academy into a manga of the same name. For all the readers who don’t know, Kaya Haruko’s manga serialization has been canceled as the author is currently undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer. In their official statement, Kaya announced that they have been aware of the disease since 2019 and continued with the work till their body allowed. However, due to the deteriorating health conditions, Kaya has finally decided to step down.

The entire team showed immense regret for the manga to end this way and treasured their time working on it. However, The Misfit Of Demon King Academy producers have announced the renewal of the anime for season 2.
