Kozue Amano's story about open water diving, daily life entered final arc last September

Kozue Amano announced on her Twitter account on March 15 that the 17th compiled book volume of her Amanchu! manga will be the final volume. The volume will ship on November 10.

The manga entered its final arc in September 2020.

Crunchyroll streams the manga's anime adaptation, and it describes the story:

Kohinata Hikari and Ooki Futaba have together found joy in many things through scuba diving and the most everyday of events. Hikari was born and brought up in a small oceanside town on Izu, and Futaba moved there from Tokyo, but the two polar opposites met at Yumegaoka High and instantly hit it off. The always-reserved Futaba found her perfect foil in the cheery and optimistic Hikari, and their friendship gave her the courage to take the first step and experience many of the smaller joys in life. She also took the Open Water Diver exam and passed, and now she has her sights set on the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

This once-in-a-lifetime high school life is still only beginning. Their magical days filled with wonder won't end as long as they keep walking together.

Amano launched Amanchu! in Mag Garden's Comic Blade magazine in November 2008 after having finished Aria earlier that year. Mag Garden published the manga's 16th volume on February 27.

The manga inspired its first television anime season in July 2016. The second season, Amanchu! Advance, premiered in April 2018.
