The official website for Kodansha's Magazine Special has revealed that it will publish the last chapter in Masahiro Itabashi's and Hiroyuki Tamakoshi's Boys Be... Next Season manga in this year's third issue on February 20.
Itabashi and Tamakoshi restarted their popular Boys Be... comic anthology manga in 2009. The first installment of Boys Be… Next Season dealt with two people who, after graduating from different high schools, have a fateful meeting at a cultural festival. Kodansha released the manga's fifth volume last month.
Itabashi and Tamakoshi started another Boys Be… manga series called Boys Be… 2009 1-Gakki (Boys Be… 2009 Term I) on Kodansha's MiChao mobile comic website in April 2009. There have already been two previous follow-up manga series, Boys Be...2nd Season and Boys Be...L Co-op. Tokyopop published most of the Boys Be...2nd Season series, without the "2nd Season" appellation, in North America. Right Stuf first released the 2000 animated adaptation in 2006. There were also live-action television drama and stage musical adaptations in Japan.
