Saiyuki Creator Kazuya Minekura Returns from Surgery.Saiyuki manga creator Kazuya Minekura reported on her blog on Tuesday that she returned from the hospital without incident. She had placed her manga on hiatus and had undergone surgery for ameloblastoma, a noncancerous tumor on her right upper jawbone. She noted that she received thousands of paper cranes to wish her well, and even her doctors and nurses remarked that they have never seen so many before. She thanked everyone who supported her. While she is returning to life at home, she is still on hiatus from her manga work.
She already had a previous operation, but the latest surgery removed the right half of her upper jawbone. The teeth on that part of her jawbone and the bone between her nose and mouth were also removed. As a result, she cannot eat food well, and she also cannot pronounce words properly. While the surgery spared the bone around her left eye, she did lose part of the bone around her right eye. Also as a result of the surgery, she lost the sense of touch on the skin on the right side of her face for the rest of her life, although her facial muscles can move normally. Minekura is being fitted with artificial prosthetics to reconstruct the area around the lost bone.

The November issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine has announced on Tuesday that Saiyuki manga creator Kazuya Minekura is putting her manga serial work on indefinite hiatus due to her poor health. Minekura provided more details on her blog on Tuesday. She explained that she is undergoing one medical check after another for a possible surgery, so she cannot maintain her work schedule.
Until her hiatus, Minekura had been drawing Saiyuki Reload Blast in Monthly Comic Zero-Sum and Saiyuki Ibun in Ichijinsha's Zōkan Zero-Sum Ward magazine.

Manga creator Kazuya Minekura has launched her Saiyuki Ibun historical adventure series in the 11th issue of Ichijinsha's Zero Sum Ward magazine on Wednesday. According to Minekura in a July 16 blog entry, Saiyuki Ibun recounts how a man grew up to become the pivotal character Komyo, years before the first Saiyuki storyline.
Minekura had stated in a May 2 blog entry that her next series will be the final act of Saiyuki. However she had since downplayed that statement in a later July 12 entry. In that entry, she said that she will launch a series called Saiyuki Reload Blast in Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine in December. Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine is another Ichijinsha publication; it had serialized the Saiyuki Reload manga until its end in June.
