Resume: Arata Kangatari by Yuu Watase

In this years Weekly Shonen Sunday issue 32 Arata Kangatari finally resumed. 

Arata Kangatari (Arata: The Legend) was a well known series among all shonen manga circles. With an anime in spring 2013 its popularity increased. 
In early 2014 the manga series went on hiatus as the author, Watase was working on the deluxe editions of the series.

The story is as follows
Every 30 years, a new princess is chosen from the Hime family to serve the Hayagami. The time has come again, but over these past years, records state not a single female has been born, save for one, the 15-year-old Arata. The only problem is, Arata is actually a male! Forced to disguise himself and take the place of the princess candidate until a formal one can be found, he attends the festival only to witness the current princess, Kokuri-hime, murdered, and his own life is forfeit as well, by the hands of the princess' personal guard, the 12 Shinshou. As he runs for his life, Kannagi of the 12 convinces everyone that Arata is the one who has murdered the princess instead, and now everyone in the Imperial Court is after his head! Now, another Arata from our world has crossed over in Arata's place! How did this happen, and how will these two survive?
