Congrats to Kurumada on nearing completion of the dream he's held most of his adult life. Very Happy

未完 no more. What a day that'll be.

I'd really like to read the whole thing after it's done. Also, Saint Seiya fans who were frustrated with the long waits between "seasons" of Next Dimension must be breathing a sigh of relief.

I guarantee that this won't be a single volume type of thing, so Otoko Zaka likely still has a few more years left to go. The latest story arc took two volumes (9 & the future 10) to tell, so there's no way Kurumada is finishing it all in a single run of chapters. If I had to make a wild guess, I'd imagine this final arc will take anywhere between 3 to 5 volumes, depending on how Kurumada aims to tell it, as there are about 9 leaders in the group that the heroes will be taking on.

That being said, this is still cool to see announced. It should, ideally, give hope to other mangaka who weren't able to finish previous works of theirs, no matter how long it was cancelled.

These new chapters will form volume 10 of Otoko Zaka manga.

Wow, that means Next Dimension has a chance to end before Hajime no Ippo, Berserk or HXH.
