All good demon girls deserve a break now and then, and so it seems that Izumo Ito’s 4 panel supernatural comedy manga, The Demon Girl Next Door (known in Japan as Machikado Mazoku), will be taking a hiatus from publication until some time in 2023. The hiatus was announced via a Tweet on the official Manga Time Kirara Twitter feed (below).

The Demon Girl Next Door manga is serialized in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story of the series as follows:
One morning, fifteen-year-old Yoshida Yuko wakes up to discover she has sprouted demon horns and a tail! Not only that, she learns from her mom that she has supernatural powers and an important mission—to restore her family’s glory by defeating the local magical girl. The magical girl in question is Chiyoda Momo, a student at Yuko’s school. With strength that is only mediocre at best, Yuko’s task to vanquish Momo will prove more challenging than she realizes in this topsy-turvy magical girl comedy.
