Hopefully Fantagraphics will make it to the end. Those books are so gorgeous to behold. Sad it is coming to an end though.

Wow, her two manga series, bam bam, one right after the other. I wonder if she's planning on leaving the manga publishing industry?

I love both of those manga, and it's sad to see them come to an end. I hope they get decent wrap-ups.

Good grief, another series is ending!?
Anyways it's a shame to see this series end. I've really enjoyed reading it. It'll be a while before Fantagraphics catches up though (I really hope they finish it it truly is an incredible series). I wonder if someone will ever pick up the anime? It really is an overlooked gem (in my opinion at least).

that's all one can hope for any series, but it's really bizarre to see so many series ending this year.

Man that was quick. I guess we'll be catching up here. So I take it that Blue Flowers is done as well. Yet we have not release of it here. Well, glad to know we don't have to wait too long for an ending.

This is very sad news, this is one of my favourites that is currently running, shame Soal Eater and now Wondering Son are coming to an end (for my personal tastes anyways).

The one good thing is the UK release is still a way behind so will pleasingly have more volumes to wait for Very Happy

What is this, the year to end manga? Never in all the time since I've been coming to ANN have I see so many reports over such a short period of time of long-standing manga ending. First Soul Eater, then Eva, now Wandering Son (and Aoi Hana)? Not to mention so many others I saw reports of but don't remember.

I'm sad to see Wandering Son end so suddenly; the last couple chapters have been rushed. Crying or Very sad

Gantz, Medaka Box, Binbogami Ga, off the top of my head. And Naruto readers speculate it may be ending soon. Reborn ended on December too, along with its spin-off.

I'm honestly wondering about it. A month ago I thought it was just me, but now that everyone mentions it, it appears it is an abnormality for so many mangas to be ending in such a short period of time.

Vampire Knight also just ended, and Maid-sama is nearing its end as well. There really are a lot of series ending this year. I've yet to start buying the books of Wandering Son, but I really hope FG makes it to the end. I've seen them in shops and they're beautiful things.

Bond of Dreams, Bond of Love has also ended (I believe 4 books were planned to start with). There have been rumours about Claymore and Naruto (which I believe Masashi Kishimoto has confirmed himself) heading towards an end for a while - Claymore has a strong possibility to continue as they spoiler[could take the story to another continent].
