Ashita no Joe manga creator Tetsuya Chiba revealed on his blog earlier this morning that he has been admitted to a Tokyo hospital over the past few days after he has been a “touch unwell since this summer.” He said that the doctors had found “some abnormalities” in the valves of his heart, coronary arteries, and throat, and after issues were found “one after another,” it was decided that being admitted to the hospital was the right course of action.


Chiba said that he’ll “get better and come back more rejuvenated than ever,” though didn’t note how long the stay will be for.

Chiba apologized for any inconveniences he may have caused by being in hospital and wished everyone to take care.
