The official website of Shogakukan's Weekly Shounen Sunday has revealed on Wednesday that author Shinobu Ohtaka will end her Magi manga in four chapters. The series is expected to end in the magazine's 47th issue to be released on October 18.

Magi began its serialization in June 2009 and currently has 35 compiled volumes in print, with its 36th volume scheduled for release on October 18. The series won the 59th Shogakukan Manga Award for the shounen category in 2013. A-1 Pictures adapted the manga into two 25-episode anime seasons in Fall 2012 and Fall 2013.

A prequel manga to the main series drawn by Yoshifumi Ohtera titled Magi: Sinbad no Bouken has been serialized in Ura Sunday since May 2013, and currently has 15 compiled volumes in print. The series inspired a 5-episode OVA series and a 13-episode TV anime by Lay-duce.

Viz Media has been releasing the manga for North American release since 2013, and recently published the 25th volume on August 8. The series has also been released in various languages, including Spanish and Polish, among others. Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic was simulcast in various regions via Crunchyroll, while Magi: The Kingdom of Magic was simulcast on Daisuki and Animax UK in addition to Crunchyroll. The anime series were also licensed by Aniplex of America for North American distribution.

I still have to catch up to a lot of chapters, so even if the series is going to end, I still have a long path to finish it.
Anyway, I hope it ends in a good note.

Well it's about time really. I'll be honest, I like Magi in general but this final arc has been... pretty shit. Not a good way for it to go out, so I'll honestly be glad to see it put out of its misery

This is it then. Time for the inevitable re-read from chapter 1 once again since I don't remember where I left off.

Aaaa, I didn't want Magi to end :( Maybe in like some years, but not now.

I love this manga so much, and the TV anime. It's definitely one of my favorites. But, if the ending will be good, then I am satisfied.

Also, let's hope for some new anime adaptations so we can see some of the newer arcs animated!

(I'm lowkey hoping for a good ending between Morgiana and Alibaba too lol)

It got worse as time went on, but there is always a bit of sadness involved when such a longrunner ends.

Magi is filled with so much feminist propoganda glad its ending.

I have a question for the ones who are following the manga, at which chapter did the second season of the anime end?
Just curious to see if another anime season can happen.

About time, we new it was in the final arc, we just needed the confirmation when will it end, and now we got it.

I agree with the guys above, the manga really fell off in the last couple of arcs, beginning from that arc when we left into past and saw young Ugo and everyone else, it was such a mess.

I was honestly surprised when I saw this news, with this popularity I expected mangaka to keep going :o Although 35+ volumes is impressive volume count anyway I guess.

Definitely on my plan-to-buy list.

Not surprising to hear it. Still, despite liking this manga, I am kind of glad to hear its finally ending, since the story has been going downhill for a long while.

Not really surprised, I assumed it will end by the end of this year. I like Magi, the last arc however... honestly it's not that entertaining, but I am glad it's ending, and I'm looking forward to Shinobu Ohtaka's next work, really like her art and her characters.

I'm glad that it is ending. This series has become rather dull, especially with this last arc. I wasn't expecting it to end so soon though since it still seems to be rather popular for others.

It was a nice manga. Some people say that the last arc was confusing and bad, but I still think it was pretty good, I guess that it was a bit different from the previous ones and there was too many things introduced in it.

One less manga to read weekly ;_;

That's how I feel too. This last arc dragged way too much but I expected it go on much longer in true endless shounen tradition.

Been more than 2 years since I finished S2, guess I will start reading the manga from first chapter very soon (doubt there will be more adaptations to the main series).

If this doesn't get another season, I'll most likely read the manga now that it's ended.

Used to be one of my favorite mangas a few years back, but the story turns into complete shit after the magnostadt arc, I regret the fact that I wasted my money buying some of the manga volumes in the past now..
