Saiyuki manga creator Kazuya Minekura reported on her blog on Tuesday that she returned from the hospital without incident. She had placed her manga on hiatus and had undergone surgery for ameloblastoma, a noncancerous tumor on her right upper jawbone. She noted that she received thousands of paper cranes to wish her well, and even her doctors and nurses remarked that they have never seen so many before. She thanked everyone who supported her. While she is returning to life at home, she is still on hiatus from her manga work.
