8th volume ships on October 9; manga's TV anime with HIDIVE streaming premiered on July 5

The August issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine revealed on Tuesday that Mari Okada and Nao Emoto's O Maidens in Your Savage Season (Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo) manga is ending in two chapters, with the last two chapters appearing in the magazine's next two issues on August 9 and September 9, respectively. The manga's eighth and final compiled book volume will ship in Japan on October 9.

Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:

The girls in a high school literature club do a little icebreaker to get to know each other: answering the question, "What's one thing you want to do before you die?" One of the girls blurts out, "Sex." Little do they know, the whirlwind unleashed by that word pushes each of these girls, with different backgrounds and personalities, onto their own clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths toward adulthood.

Okada and Emoto launched the manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in December 2016, and Kodansha published the seventh volume on Tuesday. The title is the manga series debut of screenwriter Okada.

The manga is inspiring a currently-airing television anime adaptation that premiered last Friday. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime and is streaming it on HIDIVE. Okada also supervises the scripts for the anime.

Okada has written and overseen scripts for such anime as Toradora!, A Lull in the Sea, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Kiznaiver, and Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan television anime. She recently made her directorial debut with her Maquia - When the Promised Flower Blooms anime film, and is penning the script to an upcoming anime film titled Her Blue Sky.

Emoto serialized her Forget Me Not romance manga, inspired by Mag Hsu's original Taiwanese novel Mǎzimen, from 2013 to 2016. Kodansha Comics also publishes Forget Me Not in English.
