A scan of Young Ace's upcoming issue, available on February 4, has revealed that the manga Boku dake ga Inai Machi will end in the magazine's next issue, to be released on March 4.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi, which began publishing in June 2012 in Young Ace, is drawn by Kei Sanbe. Its seventh volume was released on December 22. The manga was featured on the "Kono ga Manga Sugoi!" list in 2015 and 2016, ranking ninth and tenth, respectively. It was also a runner-up for the Manga Taisho Award in 2014 with a total of 82 points, and in 2015, it ranked fourth with a total of 57 points.

The manga received a TV anime adaptation by A-1 Pictures in Winter 2016 and is currently on-going. Aniplex of America licensed the series, and it is being simulcast by Crunchyroll, Daisuke, and FUNimation.

I'm pretty happy there isn't a "go read the manga" type of ending.

Nah, It would be just fine. (That huge book was just a comic strip.)
The manga was long because every move was illustrated.
On anime it would be just a few seconds.

I wonder how they'll wrap it up. Currently, it doesn't seem like the most satisfying conclusion...

There are plenty scenes to skip though. They can do it. The length of chapters is probably hardly a problem. It's A-1's job to choose which scene to skip or to focus on.

I've been wondering when would I hear this news and finally, they confirmed. Great. Since anime adaptation can go the same way with manga.

So wait, I haven't finished the manga. Will the anime just adapt all of the manga? or just finish at a halfway point?

It's been confirmed the anime would have the same ending as the manga and now here we know the manga will end before the anime does. So yes, the anime will follow the full story of the manga.

Except that they're only on chapter 12 by episode 4.


I take that a sign that its about time to try the manga and not to be surprise if the anime taken the worst route of not extending the number of episodes even it will make the story inconsistent.

They'll probably do the same thing as they did in episode 1 at some point. And there are plenty scenes to skip.

Excellent.
Always happy to see a complete adaptation. Wrapping things up is really important.

Good, this means the mangaka is not trying to milk it. This also does a favor to anime watchers, (if A-1 decides to adapt it fully)

Feb 3, 2016 6:05 AM by Klad

Man I wonder how the ending is going to turn out. I guess I will be finding out eventually since the anime will have the same ending (thank you for that).

Wth? I read the raws and it's clearly not finished T^T


I agree that it feels "incomplete", there are some questions still unanswered even though the manga is near you know what. And be prepared, this is going to be an assault on feelings,happy or not happy.
