posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Illustrator Sabotenn revealed on their Twitter account on October 11 that the 12th volume of Sekina Aoi's Gamers! light novel series is the final volume. The 12th volume shipped on Saturday.
The series centers on the gaming lives of various high school students who play video games, including: Keita Amano, a lonely young man who loves video games; Karen Tendō, the beautiful president of the video game club; Chiaki Hoshinomori, who constantly fights with Keita; and Tasuku Uehara, who puts on a facade of being satisfied with his life in the real world, but he in truth loves video games.
Aoi and Sabotenn launched the novel series in 2014. Tsubasa Takahashi launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in October 2016. Kadokawa will publish the seventh and final compiled book volume for the manga on October 26.
The series inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in July 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed an English dub. Funimation released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in August 2018.
Aoi's previous Seitokai no Ichizon light novel series inspired The Student Council's Discretion television anime series in 2009, and the Student Council's Discretion Lv. 2 television anime series in 2012. Sentai Filmworks released the first anime on home video in March 2015, and released the second anime in May 2015.
