posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The November issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine announced on Saturday that Hiroyuki Asada will publish the last chapter of his Tegami Bachi (Letter Bee) manga series in the magazine's next issue, which Shueisha will publish on November 4.
The manga's 19th Japanese compiled book volume previously revealed that the manga's 20th volume would be the last. Shueisha is publishing the volume this winter.
The manga began in Shueisha's Monthly Shonen Jump in 2006. After the magazine ended, the manga was briefly serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump, and finally moved to Jump Square in 2007. Viz Media releases the manga in English in North America, and it released the 18th volume on September 1.
The manga was adapted into an anime special in 2008, and inspired two television series in 2009 and 2010. Crunchyroll streamed both series outside of Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed and released both on home video in North America.
