The hilarious Fist of the North Star spin-off manga by Imouto Yukito, Yukito, and Yuushi Kawata, is taking a break. This is because of artist Imouto Yukito’s poor physical health, as Web Comic Zenyon reveals. While only one of the mangaka trio is out for a while, this puts the entire manga on hold. Unfortunately Web Comic Zenyon hasn’t revealed when the manga itself will return.

For the manga, Imouto Yukito is the artist while Kawata writes the manga’s scenarios. As for Yukito, he’s credited with the manga’s collaboration. And of course, they credited Buronson and Tetsuo Hara for the original work.
Fist of the North Star: Strawberry Flavor is a hilarious gag manga which acts as a spin-off to the more bleak world of the original. It also received an equally-hilarious TV anime adaptation titled DD Fist of the North Star II + Fist of the North Star: Strawberry Flavor back in 2015. Get well soon Imouto Yokocho!
