Weekly Shonen Jump found a new cat to roast after the start of the Act Age scandal. A few days ago it was announced that the screenwriter Tatsuya Matsuki, who published the manga in the magazine with the designer Shiro Usazaki, had been arrested by the police.

The act-age mangaka rode his bike to Nakano, where he molested some underage girls between the ages of 12 and 15 and then pedaled away. However, the local cameras were able to help identify the culprit, which turned out to be a mangaka. The scandal has resulted in many people showing up online as it is real sexual harassment and Tatsuya Matsuki could face severe punishment.

Meanwhile, it is unknown if there will be a sequel to the manga on Weekly Shonen Jump, the Japanese magazine that hosts Act-Age. But in the American counterpart, the manga has already been abandoned for cancellation: in fact, the Viz Media portal The publication date of the next chapter of Act-Age is no longer given Like every week, with the American division, which has therefore mimicked the same decisions made in the Nobuhiro Watsuki scandal.

Right now instead No changes have been made to MangaPlus, the global platform that distributes shueisha manga in English and Spanish.
