It appears things aren't looking so good for the Tales of Crestoria manga, according to the manga's artist.
In a Tweet by the Tales of Crestoria manga adaptation's artist, Tsubaki Ayasugi, the manga is apparently in a not-so-good state.

The thread goes further:
Tales of Crestoria initially released for iOS and Android devices last July 2021. After a short run, it was later shut down in February 2022. The story was later adapted to a manga, with scenario still by Jun Kumagai, and art by Tsubaki Ayasugi.
The manga is currently available on the MagaPoke app in Japan (short for Magazine Pocket, the manga app run by Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine) since December 2022. The second volume has also just been released, both as print and on Kindle in Amazon Japan.
With things not looking good for the manga, here's how you can show your support!
- Purchasing the physical copy of the manga on Amazon Japan (ships outside Japan to most countries)
- Purchase the manga for Kindle
- Purchase chapters via MagaPoke. The app can't be installed directly from the Apple App Store or Google Play if you're outside Japan, but workarounds such as QooApp work to get the APK for Android users
- If you do not have enough budget to purchase but do have MagaPoke installed, adding the manga to your favorites and leaving a like also helps!
- For those within Japan, the manga is also available via the other stores such as Tsutaya, HMV, BookWalker, Renta, etc. Some of these are also accessible overseas.
Let's try to give Tales of Crestoria a little love and let its story see its end!
