Gotta give Obata one thing: She always knows when it's time to quit. Her books never overstay their welcome.

IIII knew it. Not very happy about what they're doing with Aoki Kou, but it looks like it's time to end.

I knew it Sad

It's sad, but it goes perfectly in line with what they were saying in the manga after all.

Damn I'm gonna miss it :')

Nobody knows if this mangaka is female or male.Very happy that it is ending I thought that something tragic is going to happen and that they will stretch it forever.Looking forward to their next work.

Uhm, no. Everyone knows that Obata is a guy. I think you are confusing the two authors together. Ohba is the one where it's not 100% certain.


I WANTED TO SEE THEIR KIDS ;A; I hope there is at least some kind of one-shot extra story in the future... or some extra included with the last volume Anime cry

Are their doing so bad in the polls? Maybe they want to surpass Oda? Have they grown tired of the series?...

it seems I've read too many times Bakuman... :p

About authors genders, I quote Wiki:
Wikipedia wrote:
Bakuman, Volume 2. Inside cover profiles, Ohba's gender was previously unknown to the general public. Bakuman, volume 3- "His current series is Bakuman, serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump"

So, unless it's a typo from Viz, I'd say it's "official" that both Obata & Oba are male.

Haha, this made me laugh ((in the midst of my despair!))

You will get to know why they are ending it, probably towards the end of volume 19.

Side-note: I honestly can't believe how sad this is making me... I need to get over it...

Yep I was wrong.v1cious said that Obata knows when to end a story so I immediately thought she referred to writer.

So there's ten more volumes of this. Hopefully Viz will crank them out relatively fast.

Or, you know, it gets canceled a la Hikaru no Go. Luckily it seems that Bakuman was doing well, so that isn't the case here.

Pseudo: They'll still probably go by the TPB every other month model, but we'll be done by next year.

It's Crime? Not being crap or One Piece.

The first thing that came to mind was: what will SJ Alpha do now that it will only have four main series in a couple weeks? They could "adopt" another one, I guess. Which, I can't really imagine.

Good riddance. Couldn't have happened to a worse manga.
