This year's 33rd issue (on sale on Wednesday) of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine has announced that Jin Kobayashi is ending his School Rumble manga in next Wednesday's issue. The high school romantic comedy manga has been running in the magazine for nearly six years. (It began in the 47th issue of 2002.) The advertisement for the final magazine installment promises that the story of the lovelorn high school girl Tenma Tsukamoto and her classmates "is heading toward the goal."
Kodansha announced in February that the limited editions of the 21st and 22nd compiled manga volumes will include DVDs for the School Rumble: Third Term anime when they ship on July 17 and on September 17, respectively. Del Rey published the 10th volume of the manga in North America last month.
