    Why To Love-RU cancelled.

    Why To Love-RU cancelled

    Source: http://aoindonesia.net/showthread.php?t=6621

    The common consesus in the TLR threads is that, Yabuki had to quit because he can't be a full time mangaka for a weekly series and taking care of his little girl (she's three) at the same time (now that he has full custody).

    Ataru was asking about how much TLR was Hasemi, Yabuki, and the editors... Well, according to the Manga Brain (a special section dedicated to interviews with a mangaka in WSJ), Yabuki usually discusses the story with Hasemi over the phone on Wednesdays, then spends half a day doing the preliminary draft on Fridays... Have another in-depth discussion with both the editor and Hasemi in the afternoon, and finish up the final product on Tuesday morning (Tuesday afternoon is his free time).

    - There is this person called Nakamura Ine who is quite famous on the Nico Nico website (a large Japanese online community somewhat like Youtube), who turned out to be a minor (last year in high school) and also insinuated that he has something going on with a Kashiwagi Shiho.

    - Now this Shiho was the wife of Yabuki Kentaro, the author of To-Love-Ru. She met Yabuki when he was looking for assistants, seduced him and ended up becoming his wife and gave birth to a daughter.

    - But she hardly did any house work, neglected her daughter, and spent most of her days in front of a computer spending time in Nico Nico etc.

    - January 2009, when Yabuki was sick with flu and bedridden, she kidnapped her own daughter and disappeared, and it turned out that she left her daughter at her parents' place while she was doing this and that with Ine.

    - February 2009, Yabuki 'begged' Shiho to return for the sake of their daughter, and Shiho did return to Tokyo, but few days later she dropped out once again with the girl, this time taking a notebook computer and Yabuki's credit cards. Yabuki later stopped the cards, but a large sum of money was already taken out.

    - Yabuki looked for them everywhere, but to no avail. March 2009, Shiho demanded a divorce on the grounds of personality clash and a large chunk of Yabuki's assets, but when the evidence of her infidelity was discovered on her computer, she then changed her stance and demanded money in exchange for the custody right of the daughter.

    - Realizing it would take over a year to settle things, Yabuki accepted her conditions and got the daughter back.

    - Haruna Sairenji was based on Kashiwagi Shiho, and there is a reason why her role was reduced dramatically since volume 13, and Yui getting more prominent. And apparently Shiho has sued/demanded more money for the character of Haruna recently.

    - A comment of Yabuki's while this was all happening:
    [While I was working hard on a manga that was focused on taking young girls' panties off, another man was taking my wife's panties off.]

    - I forgot to mention that following the dispute over Haruna's character right, Yabuki feared his daughter getting hurt by all the debacle, so he accepted Shiho's demand yet again and ended the series prematurely.

    Nakamura Ine, the famous guy in the horse mask performing music on nico, has admitted on his blog that he had extramarital relations with Kashiwagi Shiho, the wife of ToLoveru artist Yabuki Kentarou. On his blog he apologizes deeply once more to Yabuki and also to all that have been affected by this.

    Kashiwagi Shiho had started getting in touch with the musicians on nico douga and got to know Nakamura Ine among others, and she had collaborations with them by helping them draw the art for the music they post up (under the handle name of Ume).

    Kashiwagi and Yabuki are apparently now currently divorced since early this year (the extramarital relations happened before the divorce) and Yabuki has the custodial rights to their 3 year old daughter.

    The entire issue was spotted and dug up through mixi and there was a very long battle as 2ch posters tried to find more evidence and confront Nakamura and Kashiwagi. There was a lot of unconfirmed info so I hadn’t posted about it till now.

    There is still a lot about what happened between them, so interested parties that understand Japanese can read the wiki.

    He had announced that he will be joining the Ouzoku Band but now he’ll leave them instead, and he’ll delete his mixi account, his blog, and all of his and Ume’s videos from nico douga.
    A recent one-shot chapter published in WSJ by Yabuki Kentaro: Futagami Double
    A new Monthly series by Yabuki Kentaro in the JSQ Mayoi Neko Overrun!

    Reason for him doing a monthly is because of being a single dad.

    Man, crappy reason for this manga to end like this. I want to find out who Rito will end up choosing. But with all that has happened, no wonder the manga was so random and there seems to be not much development.

    Cool

    man, I feel bad for yabuki, so much worthless drama he could've done without, least he got his daughter back so that's good.

    Few questions, why exactly couldn't he have made To-Love-Ru monthly and finish it off. Who owns the rights to the manga, yabuki or WSJ?

    What is the new monthly manga about? And will he ever return and finish To-love-Ru properly, I'm sure WSJ would much rather have it finished then an incomplete work, so maybe they can accomodate him by making it monthly also for few months.

    Wow, I really feel sorry for Yubuki. He'll probably find a new wife soon. What a bitch Shiho must be to demand money for not only her likeness but Her Daughter? I believe that people like that have no place in this world.

    Sucks that To-Love-Ru had to be a casualty.

    I think they decided to end the manga on his wife's demands. Just so he could spare his daughter any more pain.

    These were rumors for around for quite a while. It's sad to see that they were mostly true in this case. Who knows know TLR would of ended if all this drama never effected Yabuki in the first place. It goes to show, that Yabuki was indeed unwilling at times to draw Haruna because of the resemblance to his wife. That does explain the lack of her screen time.

    Still I'll be looking forward to his new Monthly Manga, who knows maybe he'll throw him some more TLR character in like he did with this first chapter. If you haven't checked it out, please do. It was a bit of surprised when I recognized who showed up.

    Sadly I did enjoy his One Shot Futagami Double a lot more though. Hopefully when things settle down, he can hopefully return make it a weekly series. The story seemed to be a lot more interesting, but than again that could of been because of how it reminded me of Reborn.
