The manga "Needless" had its last chapter published in the latest issue of Ultra Jump (July 2013) released on June 19th. The manga was written by Kami Imai and started serialization in 2003. It was adapted to a TV anime series, also called "Needless", in 2009. The final volume of the manga, vol.16, will be published on September 19th.

Also, Kami Imai discloses that his new work will start in early 2014.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

I'm only watch the first episode of the anime. Maybe I should check it out this time.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

Needless was my first few Manga. I stopped reading it at some point because the whole story somehow became so confusing. Still a great Manga though!

I hope there will be an Anime remake.

My friend won't be happy to hear about that! He's such a big fan.

On the other hand, good chance to watch the anime now.

I hope he makes a new series. I don't know. Something on the same groundbreaking level as Claymore, Berserk, and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

Well, that's one series that ended.

I kinda wish shueisha ended 3 other specific series, but i doubt it since they profit from it.

I remember watching the anime years ago and loved it. I've been meaning to read the manga for a while now and now that it is ending all the more reason to start on it.

Now that the manage is done they should redo the anime. I liked it but they could definitely make it much better if they stick to manga material.

This has been one crazy ride. I absolutely loved the anime, and after the meh anime original ending, the manga was even better. Arcs like Saint Rose Academy and Bloody Rain were the best moments I had with any series. Ever.

But then came Eve's story and it was sort of a long lasting disappointment. It was disappointing but it was nothing compared to the City Arc. I'm not sure if Imai Kami got tired with the series or if they told him to finish the manga and this was his way of telling them "fuck you". The last arc was a never ending line of asspulls, the trademark humor almost completely disappeared, and they treated the best characters in the most shameful ways.

I believe the best moments of the series were when Cruz was on his own with nothing but his crossdressing and brain to save his ass. I'm a bit sad that the manga ended like this, but nevertheless it will always have a special spot in my heart.

Oh, nvm I'm wrong.
I just saw someone mention it in a thread four or five days ago... Maybe the one about Sket Dance Manga ending. I mentioned Needless ending in the Sket Dance thread... No idea as to how I came about the information though.

Thanks for the advice though.
