It’s a sad week for Sugar Sugar Rune fans. Manga-ka Moyoco Anno has announced she will be halting her manga work due to poor health. Anime News Network has the story:
[Anno's current manga work] includes her recent Ochibisan manga in the Asahi Shimbun paper and Hataraki Man (pictured at right) in Kodansha‘s Morning magazine. Anno apologized to her readers and said she thinks the current break will be a long one. She also said that she still wants to draw manga eventually and hopes her readers will follow her work if she returns.
In addition to Rune, Anno’s Flowers and Bees and Happy Mania have been published in the U.S.
