Ayu Watanabe's L♥DK shoujo manga has ended its eight-year run in the September issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine on Saturday. A bonus chapter of the manga will be published in the November issue of the magazine, which is scheduled to be released in October. The 24th and final compiled volume will go on sale on October 13.

L♥DK has been serialized since the magazine's March 2009 issue and has over 4.7 million copies in print as of November 2014. The series bundled a drama CD with its eighth compiled volume and was adapted into a live-action film in 2014. Kodansha Comics USA has been releasing the manga in English since 2015 and published the tenth compiled volume on August 8.

I hope I'm not the only one who misread the title as an abbreviation or acronym for something more inappropriate. Oh how anime has corrupted my mind.

Unless it does mean it...

Yeah, LDK represents an apartment with a living, dining, and kitchen room, with a number preceding it to represent the number of bedrooms (like 2LDK, to represent 2 bedrooms).

I said this back when the series was in its final arc but about darn time. Dropped it ages back because it wasn't going anywhere with just pointless crap here and there.
