Manga adaptation of Wataru Watari's high school drama series launched in 2012

The 14th compiled book volume of My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected @ comic, Naomichi Io's manga adaptation of Wataru Watari's My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected light novel series, revealed on Tuesday that the manga is on its "last spurt."

Yen Press licensed both the novel series and the manga for English publication in 2015. The publisher describes the story:

Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. "Youth" is a crock, he believes--a sucker's game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. But when he turns in an essay for a school assignment espousing this view, he's sentenced to work in the Service Club, an organization dedicated to helping students with problems in their lives! How will Hachiman the Cynic cope with a job that requires--gasp!--optimism?

Io launched the manga in Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine in 2012. Yen Press published the manga's 11th volume on June 18, and will ship the 12th volume on December 17.

Watari began the original light novels with illustrations by Ponkan8 in Japan in 2011. The series' final arc began with the 12th volume, which shipped in September 2017. The 14th and final volume shipped in Japan on Tuesday.

The novels previously inspired two anime seasons, which Crunchyroll streamed under the titles My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU and My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released both seasons on home video in North America. Sentai Filmworks will dub both the first and second season, with a new home video release slated for this year. A third season is slated for a spring 2020 premiere.
