The manga won in the Best General Manga category at the 37th Kodansha Manga Award in 2013. J.C.Staff adapted the series into a 12-episode TV anime in Summer 2015 with an OVA bundled with the 20th compiled volume in March 2016. The Fukukaichou Ganbaru. spin-off manga by ReDrop began in Young Magazine the 3rd in August 2016 and ended recently with 14 chapters on October 6.

Yen Press has been publishing the manga in English in 2-in-1 omnibus format since July 2015. Funimation licensed the anime series for North American distribution and released it in a Blu-ray and DVD volume in November 2016.

I've heard from many manga readers that the arc they're at dragged itself for too long for like 5 volumes in a row, and it got so formulatic that it lost what made the series good to begin with. Which is a shame honestly, since I liked the anime adaption of it.

Despite that, I do hope for the better, especially for the fans to see at least a decent ending.

Finally! The author was dragging the manga too much lately. I hope the best girl wins in the end.

I guess the current situation in the manga does seem like a "conclusion". It's best to end this series right now, then to drag it on. The climax of the previous arc was already a nightmare in terms of pacing. That being said though, the series is ending on a high note since the last couple of chapters were actually pretty funny.

I was planning on picking this up again sometime soon, now I'll just wait for it to end before reading it.

Hope we do get a another season of the anime.

Wasn't the author able to find more creative ways how to beat male MCs, so he end it ?

Yeah I mean sure it has been heading to a sort of climax recently but this still feels premature to me. Think it should've gotten another maybe 10 chapters to properly wrap things up but oh well

Was a fantastic manga either way; even if the ending might turn out a bit lackluster it will feel like a relatively small deal compared to how good the rest of it has been (well, discounting the fucking cavalry battle arc that is)

It's not like I and anyone else who read the manga didn't suffer through 100+ chapters of the worst kind of nonsense for nothing. Oh well, I'd like it to stay a bit longer and maybe redeem itself but for what it's worth I guess this is fine as well.

No matter what happens in the next chapters, I really doubt the ending will be satisfying since it is not enough time to conclude everything that needs a conclusion.

Really ? I thought this day would never come since lately all he has been doing is dragging the series for absolutely no purpose. I still dunno I'm supposed to feel about this.

What was the date for real.
Is it Tsubasalover read it wrong or it was been changed?
Can't he just postpone it until next year?

Well it's finally official that this manga got axed. Hiramoto should've seen this coming, because of how he dragged the cavalry arc for nonsensical plot.

It's just sad that it is axed because he just set up a few sub plots, that may not be answered for the next final chapter. Also, that announcement page is kinda spoilery right? Since that's from the newest raw chapter and has not been translated yet.

Wow I really didn't expect this. I did notice the stuff has been starting to resolve itself in the plot with Kiyoshi being confronted by the 2 main girls that are interested in him, but didn't think it would end anytime soon.

Looking forward to the conclusion.

I'm honestly not surprised, not sure what more can be done in it. The story from the Cavalry battle onwards has plummeted in quality, the pacing is abysmal and it has lost all the charm it had since the end of that Cavalry battle when a certain event happened. It feels like it's running just to keep running which you really can tell.

I'm glad he's finishing it before he runs it into the ground any further.

With the manga ending, I'm not sure if there's a purpose for a second season...I'd love to see it still though.

I'm glad this is going to end, since the level wasn't the same since the Cavalry Battle arc. Is better to end this before things got eve worse.

I'm not even mad or surprised tbh, as a big fan of the series even I can admit things have gotten really stalled for a while now (got to a point that I had to put it on hold since it go so boring).

Well as long as best girl Hana wins, I'm good. You can't fuck this up, right Hiramoto?

The Cavalry Arc killed the manga. It dragged on and got so redundant that I began skimming every chapter that came out for like 20 chapters straight and missed absolutely nothing. How do you drag out a high school cavalry battle for TWO FKN YEARS???!?! Manga forums dried up, scanlators got bored, and the Japanese fans got pissed off.

Look at the reception this arc got:

This came out of nowhere. I wasn't impressed by the latest arc but to see this end following that...yikes.

Hopefully they'll be another announcement in the final chapter.

The school cavalry is absolutely disgusting and some of it are unfunny.

We're talking about prison here but none of it make sense because the prison itself aren't used not to mention after the helicopter incidents.
There's some good scene but the scene dragged to much like 60 chapter for a whole bunch of weird kiyoshi dick.

No more release date? Lololol. Was it unsure or being changed?
I don't know if it's good or not. I hope it gets extended until next year.
Since a lot of people saying it's too soon and a lot of plot holes/loose ends.

Honestly...the whole school festival arc(in particular the cavalry stuff) was fine when read in bulk. On a week to week basis I understand how it pissed people off, but I read like 30 or so chapters of it in a row and I had a decent time with it. Having said that, I do think the manga is ending a bit early. It felt pretty clear that this was the final arc, but you would think it'd at least get another 20-25 chapters and hit 300. I don't think it was canceled though, considering the magazine that it's in and the volume sales were still relatively fine even if they had gone down some. I imagine it's something we'll probably never know the answer to unless Hiramoto says something about it.

And yeah, we'll probably never get a season 2 now unfortunately.

The author is just following the steps of Kubo and Mashima at this point xD
