The manga is returned in September Issue of Jump SQ, released in August 3rd, 2013.
Starting from March 2012 issue of Jump SQ., Watsuki put Embalming on hiatus until fall, so he can work on the "reboot" of Rurouni Kenshin.
Embalming takes place in the last decade of the 19th century in Europe and is based on the idea that Victor Frankenstein actually existed and created an artificial human from bodyparts of dead people (see Frankenstein's monster) and that even 150 years after this event, numerous scientists across Europe are using what's left of his notes to try and create their own monsters. These creatures are referred to as Frankensteins. The series follows several main characters who are all involved in the Frankenstein research in different ways. Their stories are told in separate, but interconnected episodes or story arcs.
