Life-and-Death and Standstill is the name of the 32nd episode of the Bakuman anime. It aired on November 12, 2011.
The chief editor decides to put "TRAP" on hiatus until Mashiro and Takagi's graduation. He decided to do so because of Mashiro's uncle, whom many thought to have died from overworking himself, as he does not want the past to repeat itself. As the editors hear of the hiatus and reason why, most disagree with the idea but figure they can't do much about it. When Fukuda hears of the reason he gets furious and begins a boycott, including Nizuma, Hirumaru and the Aoki & Nakai team. They all decide to put their work on hiatus too until TRAP will be published again.
