btw: what about the manga? I/We know that the Light Novel is left unfished but wasn´t the Manga finished ?
Or has the Manga a completly different story/ ends where the Light Novel ends?

The manga also ended after the author's death and the last volume (vol.6) was released in Nov 2011 (the author passed away in April 2011) From what I know the story was changed from the light novel to give it a different ending but I have not read it.
The manga has a ending?! Are yuo sure, vol 7 last page isnt a ending at all.

He died and his last tweet was about the MM! anime? .....so there would have been another season if he didn't die?


It was one of the worst selling shows of 2010, so no.

The anime was pretty enjoyablem and pretty good IMO
R.I.P. and it´s very sad that we won´t get to know what will happen after ep12.
I´d really like to see another season , even if they have to make up something

RIP. the anime was quite good, my question is since the novel was finished in 2012 and the anime ended in 2010 could they make a 2nd season going off the manga and current novel??

I've just finished watching the Anime on DVD, almost as a way of respect for him, now I've finished I'm sad he isn't around to make more, it was a great series, not the best but I highly enjoyed it. To remain incomplete is a great shame.

I hope he is finding peace in the afterlife.

As no one have yet to share with this discussion, the reason why the author died, and the outcome of the investigation. Do anyone care to do so now..?
MM! was pew-pew btw. Not my one of my favorites, but unique and funny in it's own way.
