The December issue of Kodansha's Monthly Afternoon magazine revealed on Tuesday that it will resume Asa Higuchi's Ookiku Furikabutte (Big Windup!) baseball manga in the magazine's January issue, which will go on sale on November 25. The magazine also revealed that the manga's 18th volume will go on sale on November 22.

The magazine revealed that Higuchi would take a long hiatus last December. At that time the magazine's editors said that Higuchi was taking a break "for her health and to recharge." Higuchi also noted then that the manga would resume its serialization around November.

The manga has been running in Monthly Afternoon since September of 2003, and the 17th volume (pictured at right) shipped in September. The manga has 10 million copies in print. The story inspired two television anime seasons, and Funimation released part of the anime in North America.
