We all need to take a break from work, school, or anything that we’re busy with. Sometimes, manga creators, or mangaka, also have to take breaks too, and these often result to hiatuses. Some of them would go on hiatuses for a various reasons. Some would take a break because of calamities like the Kumamoto earthquake, others because a relative is sick, while others for their own health, and others just to refresh their minds and go on vacation.

Japanese ranking website, Goo, recently asked manga readers which mangaka takes too many breaks. The results are now in, and we’re not really surprised who they ranked at #1 (because we can all see it coming).
