Just wondering how often is a series updated when it's not on the release schedule?

    I just finished the latest ascendance of a bookworm prepub. I really enjoyed it. I just didn't see any information in the upcoming releases section for the next volume to begin work. The upcoming releases section goes all the way to march. All i see is the final release of the current volume for publication and the manga release.

    New volumes don't get added to the release section until the first part gets released. The next Bookworm volume is expected to launch in about 2 weeks, tentatively. At that point, the rest of the parts for that volume will be added to the schedule.

    It's done that way because there have been issues behind the scenes that have delayed a new volume and it's easier to just wait then have mad fans cause delays.
    I know that issues Sam has mentioned have included a delay on the cover art due to an artist being sick, Golden week holidays in Japan putting a pause on the contract itself and more than once personal issues for JNC staffers.
    So your normal everyday reasons for stuff to delay.
