Manga creator Itaru Bonnoki recently took to Twitter to reveal his diagnosis of ossification of the ligamentum flavum (OLF), a condition characterized by thickening of the spinal ligaments. The disease can lead to spinal stenosis and potential nerve damage, causing Bonnoki to endure constant back pain for the past few months.
Currently searching for a suitable hospital for the challenging surgery needed to correct this problem, his failing health has extended an indefinite hiatus from his comic series “The Vampire Dies in No Time” by him. which previously went on a one-month break from March 30 to April 27, was originally scheduled to resume on May 11.
