Manga resumes after half-year hiatus to change publishers
The October issue of Akita Shoten‘s Dokodemo Young Champion magazine revealed on Tuesday that Synecdoche‘s Plus-Sized Elf (Elf-san wa Yaserarenai.) manga will resume with a serialization in the magazine beginning in the next issue on October 26.
The manga began its half-year hiatus in May to change publishers, and Synechdoche announced earlier this month that the manga is now under publisher Akita Shoten, with compiled book volumes under the publisher’s Young Champion Comics label. The manga’s eighth compiled book volume will ship on November 19.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga, and it describes the story:
Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he’s saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest–everything about her screams “elf,” except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this loveable elf girl lose the weight–and keep it off?
Synecdoche launched the ongoing manga on Wani Books‘ Comic Gum website in December 2016, and Wani Books published the seventh compiled volume in October 2020. Synecdoche previously stated that the manga will continue on for “just a little bit longer.”
