Gangster. mangaka Kosuke “reintroduced” himself on Twitter, providing details about her ongoing battle with Lupus. Her reaction seems to be partly due to questions about her irregular publishing schedule.
Since there are many inquiries, I will introduce myself again.She wrote in English
I’m a manga artist and have systemic lupus erythematosus. Due to complications, I lost one eye. I also have paralysis in my fingers, disorders in blood vessels and internal organs. I’m still working, but it’s much slower than a typical manga artist, and updates are irregular. This account publishes illustrations drawn as part of rehabilitation. The whole picture of the illustration is available for a fee on “FANBOX“. I prioritize my health over work, so I want you to leave me alone. I’m crazy now to enjoying life with the my little birds.

Kohske previously disclosed information about hee health last year, writing that her “joints and blood vessels become inflamed, causing anemia, malaise and fever. One eye was nearly blind.”
Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks the body. Kohske had previously been diagnosed with eosinophilic disorder, a similar autoimmune disease. Because of this, her takes frequent breaks to serialize the Gangsta. manga to treat her illness.
The manga was last discontinued in September 2018 and returned in March 2019 with chapter 55. The latest chapter is chapter 56, which debuted in December. The manga was also on hiatus in November 2015 due to Kohske’s health, but was resumed in May 2017. Shinchosha published the eighth compiled volume in May 2018.
The manga revolves around Nick and Worick, two men who take on both mafia and police jobs in the city of Ergastulum, a rotten city full of mob, thugs, prostitutes and dirty cops.
Viz Media publishes the manga in North America. A 12-episode anime adaptation of the manga premiered in July 2015. Funimation streamed the series as it aired with English subtitles, along with an English dub.
Kohske is also an advocate for official manga releases and has spoken out against pirated copies of her manga in the past.
