Awesome! I love this series, but the style of genre that it is means that it really shouldn't overstay its welcome and go on forever either. So while my reaction to a manga I like ending is usually "NO! I wanted more!" here it's "good, now it won't drag forever"
I still need to buy vol 7 and 8, looks like it'll be 10 volumes total, eh?

Yay! And yeah, I'm happy they're not dragging this out. ~10 volumes seems just about right for this series.

I got impatient and read ahead while I was waiting for a volume to come out, and it really seemed like it was about to end. I'm glad it's not being dragged out too much and I look forward to reading the ending.

Sweet! Got really into the series around volume 3, but I haven't bought the latest one yet, because I was sort of in fear it would stretch out forever. But if it's ending soon, then hell yeah, ready to jump back in.

I'm also of the opinion more manga series should try to aim at being 10 volumes long, because it provides a lot of room to work with but you have to keep everything planned out and can't have irrelevant plot details.

Hmm, I guess I should start reading this soon as I saw volume 1 of it at a local bookstore a few months ago.

The plot also looks interesting so...

Oh good, a fairly short series. There should be more of these. Hate it when a good manga overstays its welcome and becomes meh.
