The author Tomo Takeuchi announced on his Twitter account that the manga Ballroom and Youkoso won't have a new chapter in this year's 11th issue of the magazine Monthly Shonen Magazine from the publisher Kodanshanext October 6th.
Takeuchi stated that the interruption was due to the introduction of a new work system and the replacement of its assistants, which delayed the writing process. The author plans to resume the manga as usual starting November this year.

The piece inspired a 24-episode anime adaptation produced by the studios. Production IG, Headed by Yoshimi Itazu and scripts written by Kenichi Suemitsu, published July 2017.
