Tomo Takeuchi’s Welcome to the Ballroom manga is currently in hiatus due to the mangaka’s poor health. However, it seems that its hiatus is getting extended for another month according to Monthly Shounen Magazine. This is because Takeuchi’s health further deteriorated while working on his return chapter.
The hiatus started back in December 2017 during the manga’s January 2018 issue, and was scheduled to return by March for the April 2018 issue. However, because Takeuchi’s health deteriorated, they pushed it back to another month. The magazine did promise that Welcome to the Ballroom will be returning in the May 2018 issue, which will get its release in April next month.
Here is how Kodansha describes the series story:
Feckless high school student Tatara Fujita wants to be good at something – anything. Unfortunately, he’s about as average as a slouchy teen can be. The local bullies know this, and make it a habit to hit him up for cash, but all that changes when the debonair Kaname Sengoku sends them packing. Sengoku’s not the neighborhood watch, though. He’s a professional ballroom dancer. And once Tatara Fujita gets pulled into the world of the ballroom, his life will never be the same.
The manga received a very successful 24-episode TV anime from Production IG last year. It also received plenty of awards as a manga, such as being named one of Kono Manga ga Sugoi!’s best manga of 2013.
