Wani Books is no longer printing Synecdoche’s Plus-Sized Elf (Elf-san wa Yaserarenai) manga, according to Synecdoche’s tweet on Friday. The manga’s 45th chapter was released by Wani Books.
Chapter 46th and 47th chapters are being posted on Twitter by Synecdoche and after the author publishes the 47th issue, the manga will be put on hold for a half-year as it switches publishers. The manga will be relaunched this fall by a new publisher.

Plus-Sized Elf was licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment in English, and the following is how the story is described:
Naoe-kun, a massage therapist, is about to head home for the day when he’s saddled with a rather strange patient. This lovely lady has emerald eyes, pointy ears, and grew up in the forest–everything about her screams “elf,” except for one thing: her bodacious body. It turns out she left her world but loves junk food in this one, and now her obsession has caught up with her. Can Naoe-kun help this loveable elf girl lose the weight–and keep it off?
Synecdoche debuted Plus-Sized Elf on Wani Books’ Comic Gum website in December 2016, and the seventh compiled volume will be published in October 2020.
Synecdoche will share more details about the new publisher and the release date of the manga’s eighth compiled book volume on Twitter at a later date.
