How often does Yotsubato& come out? How frequently are chapters released? Do you know when the next chapter will come out? Thanks.

The magazine it's published in comes out monthly, near the end of the month. Raw scans usually show up within a week or so, but sometimes it takes longer. Ralen is pretty fast at translating once the raws are available.

Forgot to mention- not every issue of the magazine contains Yotsuba&. The series to be included are announced ahead of time earlier in the month.

Also, at the last page of each chapter, it says when is the next chapter going to be published.
We learned not to pay attention to it because most of the time it's plainly wrong.

I was unaware that it was published in a monthly magazine, but seeing how yeah that fits the trend of the way they release other things it seems to fit.

Ha. That's too bad really. Seems like I casually read though a few chapters a day for month what took over 10 years to make. I thought mangaka worked like crazy?

Some artists take longer than others. There's weekly and monthly manga publications & Azuma Kiyohiko works for the latter.
He also does the merchandise and will often revise and expand chapters after they've been published in the magazine Dengeki Daioh for the collected editions.

As for why Yotsubato chapters come out sporadically, here's some guesses-
-He's been doing manga for more than 20 years and is in his 50's.
-He's a perfectionist and doing gentle, humorous, slice of life stories with detailed backgrounds takes a while to do.
If it takes him 2 days to do a page, plus art for merchandise, outside commissions (like the Wonderfest posters he does), revising chapters for the collected editions plus painting covers for them and the time he puts into the Yotuba merchandising company Yotuba Sutaizo, you can see why he might not be able to put out chapters regularly (even with the help of background art assistants)

Currently he's over half way done with Yotsuba& vol. 15 and he started the series 16 years ago, so it's averaged out to almost 1 volume a year.

I do think he went through a few periods where he took time off from the series.

If you think Yotsuba is published slowly, be glad you don't follow Ichigo Mashimaro, lol. The author was dealing with some health issues for awhile, and there would be long gaps (IIRC there were some over a year) followed by three-page chapters at times.
