Not really much to expand on since the anime covered everything so well, but i'm a big fan so i'll try it nevertheless.

Though i don't see how they could pull it of.

That was my first thought as well, but admittedly, it would be quite ridiculous to have a second season after such ending.
Since I loved the anime, I'll surely give the manga a try!

Wow, I'd actually want to read it, anime was awesome. Though I'm not sure if it'll make a good manga story, since it was pretty... unique, I guess?

Yup, makes sense.
Yes, this is always the case for many magazine publication in Japan. The issue number is always the month after.

Mm, haven't read anything by the artist, so hopefully the art will be decent enough for me to check it out.

Reverse adaptations don't sell well. Rightly so.
