Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday shared the news, and they aren’t sure when Arakawa will resume writing. Silver Spoon has been on an irregular schedule since 2014 due to a combination of caring for an ill family member and mapping out the story’s climax. Arakawa has storyboards planned for an epilogue, but she hasn’t decided when to work on the ending.
Arakawa launched Silver Spoon in April 2011 and 14 volumes have been published so far. Tired of trying to meet the impossible expectations set upon him, Yuugo Hachiken enrolls at Ooezo Agricultural High School, which is far from the city life he has always known. With no plans for the future, Yuugo uses his high school years learning about agricultural life and how it affects the lives of his new friends.
A-1 Pictures produced a two-season adaptation, totaling at 22 episodes, that ran in the summer 2013 and winter 2014 seasons. A live-action movie also debuted in 2014.
