Life is super unpredictable; you never know what’s gonna happen next. Especially while dealing with things like cancer, we must be as careful as we can be. Unfortunately, something similar happened to My Status as an Assassin Obviously Exceeds The Hero’s mangaka.
The author of My Status as an Assassin manga, Hiroyuki Aigamo, was recently diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Ever since last October, the manga has been on a hiatus due to the mangaka’s health.
My Status as An Assassin Obviously Exceeds the Hero’s manga will continue its ongoing hiatus as Hiroyuki Aigamo updated fans about her current condition.
Long time no see. This is a duck.
More than half a year has passed since the “Notice of Rest,” and the number of messages of concern has increased.

Aigamo opened up about her fight with the disease in a recent tweet thread while updating us about her improving condition. She informed fans that she went through surgery in January and has improved a lot since then.
The fight against such a condition is difficult. However, Aigamo’s tweet was a relief as she mentioned that the surgery helped a lot, and she has been living a calm life since then.
Hiroyuki tried getting back to work by working on the manga at a slow pace. However, she said that she still can’t work a lot, and the manga will be on a break until then.

She started working again around June after her doctor strictly said not to overwork. Therefore, she’s been taking it slow.
We hope that Aigamo puts herself first and makes a full recovery before continuing work. The fans are more than happy as long as their favorite mangaka is fine.
We often forget that another human being is writing the manga we love and that they need rest too. There have been so many cases of artists and authors getting into life-threatening situations to deliver to the fans.
We do not want another case like that. We wish for a speedy recovery for Aigamo and urge her to take as much time as she wants to recover.
