40-42 I think.

Nope it's not 40-42 I checked those out i don't think it matches up thank you for trying though does anyone else know I really really don't want to have to sit down and chapter hop possibly spoiler future events for himself to see where it matches up.
The anime jumped around and changed the order of some events.

Season 1 ends at around ch 30 I think but S2 has scenes from 20+ or so.

Tl;dr just read from ch. 1 I guess.

Huh, there's quite a lot of loose ends to tie up. I wonder if heading toward climax means just a couple chapters or 2 more years.

I just started reading the manga and the Gauna invasion is insane due to the sheer number of them

I hope Nihei should finish his manga so 3rd season will come sooner.

Cool, I'll pick it up when it finishes then.

Nuuuuuuu :(

I am a dozen chapters behind but still

Jul 25, 2015 4:52 PM by Botato

Sigh, all good things must come to an end I guess. I hope the author starts another work after this.

Really sad to see this end, been following it since the start and its one of my favourite series.

Jul 25, 2015 4:23 PM by Brynhild

Guess I'll wait with picking this up until it ends then (unless a third season is announced before that)

Jul 25, 2015 3:28 PM by Rikuson1

At least another 40 chapters :)

Jul 25, 2015 3:18 PM by knktzvra

Good and bad news at the same time. I hope it lasts for another 50 chapters or so.

Maybe time to catch up with it soon. I feel like the plot somewhat lost the sense of direction at some point, so this will hopefully make the manga interesting again

Had this on my ptr for a while. Glad it's finishing I'm so much more inspired to finish finished manga.
