The information entry for this manga says that it has 6 chapters, but I think they're only 5. In the 5th chapter the author signed that it was the end of the story, so why is it here marked as 6? Shouldn't it be changed?
The last release of Konbini kun was months ago and since then no new information came up and I highly doubt that there will be any in the future. The only logical thing I could is that with the 6th chapter, the one shot series "Shounen scrub" by Junko is mentioned. But if that's the case, musn't the chap number be changed to 5 and a new entry for that story created, since it's in no relationship to the main story and with the extra information that it appeared in chapter 6 (or 1, if you count by the beginning of this series) as an additional story? I think that would be the fairest solution, since there are people who don't want to read the that one shot and completed the main story, but have not the chance to marked it as completed, since MAL asks if one read all 6 chaps, which they haven't done?
Of course, we can't be 1000% sure! There isn't neither a confirmation of the people, who bought the Tankoubon or a from Juné, who pointed out how much chapters in the book appear, it's still far away from the release. Though, I only think that this is the most likely option? Even if it's somehow unimportant for others, the bureaucracy should be done properly. So, any opinions on this matter? <(^^;;

MAL always counts extra stories in any manga on the database. There's a lot of other mangas with extra non-related stories, since they consider the tankoubon release as a compilation. It's pretty normal to have a non-related extra, more like a "special" gift for those who bought the tanko and not only the anthologies. I don't think is necessary to create a new entry, just wait until someone translated it. Or put in your complete, anyway...

The sixth chapter is youthful love.

I didn't read a 6th chapter, guess I'm gonna have to search.
