While probably not very popular in the west, Muhyo and Roji has been a rather successful manga in Japan (Or it was 10 years ago when it ended, anyways) and, during Comiket, Yoshiyuki Nishi gave people a special chapter of his series that ended with “Coming soon. Please chech 2018.1.? – Shonen Jump Plus / Tonari Young Jump”. So it seems the series could resume soon based on that teaser.
