The March issue of Kodansha's Be Love magazine announced on Friday that Yoko Shoji's Seito Shokun! -Saishūshō: Tabidachi- (Attention Students! Final Chapter: Departure) manga will have its final chapter in the magazine's next issue on March 1.

The original Seito Shokun! manga serialized in Kodansha's Shojo Friend magazine from 1977-1984. A sequel, Seito Shokun! Kyōshi-hen (Teacher Arc), launched in 2004 and ended in 2011. Seito Shokun! -Saishūshō: Tabidachi- launched the same year. Kodansha published the 29th compiled volume of Seito Shokun! -Saishūshō: Tabidachi- on December 13.

The manga follows an energetic girl named Nakki who used to live with her grandparents but returns home to her weak and sick twin sister and a new school. She begins the story as a student, but when she grows up she becomes a teacher.

The manga has inspired several live-action adaptations and a 1986 anime special.
