According to Weekly Shonen Jump, Bakuman will end in the magazine vol.21 & 22 combined issue to be released on April 23rd. The comic books volumes 18, 19, and 20 will be released in May, June and July, respectively.
no way... I knew that there was the possibility that they might end it.... but I can't believe it, at least they decided to make it end on a good note... looking forward to their next work!...also it might be good that they are ending it like this, it could mean that they might do a full anime adaptation!
DON'T READ SPOILER UNLESS YOU"VE READ CHAPTER 173 OF BAKUMAN
I just realized they were talking to their readers in a way about their own manga, how Takagi & Mashiro wanted to end REVERSI in the best way it could possibly end before their anime adaptation...maybe i'm thinking too much but it seems that way :O
Wow, that is sudden. I assume it had been going towards a conclusion? I don't read the manga but will start watching season 2 of the anime soon. So can we assume that with season three the anime will be finished as well or doesn't it cover that much of the manga?
It's really hard to accept this. Well, I knew this was coming but still... It's a shock. This is a unique Manga in a good way. I learned a lot from Bakuman. I learned everything about being a Mangaka etc.
Oh well, It's been a great read. DeathNote and Bakuman, what more can I ask.. Hoping for their next Manga! Thanks authors! Bakuman will be remembered! Bye Bakuman I will miss you 10/10.
P.S: I still believe, somewhere deep in my heart, that Bakuman story is somewhat related to the authors life :D:D:D
The Authors are really great. This sucks seriously another great manga to wait every week will be gone now :(
Spoilers ahead don't read till you are at chapter 170+
why so sudden!? Oh damn it. It's like on Reversi when Takagi and Mashiro decided to end it suddenly and told their editor it is the best way to end it rather than having a long story to remember.[/spoilers]
Why is everyone being sad? The main storyline is just about to wrap up and all the subplots have been resolved. It's the best time to end it. I've been expecting to see this announcement on MAL for a couple of weeks now ^_^
Wow. That was sudden! So now, after reading Bakuman for years, I find myself trying to analyse WHY they stop the series so sudden. They wanted the RIGHT ending (without more input like Naruto etc) or not enough votes?? That can't happen given that they have an anime running, or...?!
With last chapter (175) I had the feeling that it could end in next one, but with the rumors about ending in 2-6 weeks I thought it would last a liitle longer, seems that I wasn't mistaken. It was a great manga, thanks a lot to the authors ^^
