There are 10 books in the Bakuman series out in the U.S. so far, and I’ve been enjoying them. Now, via ANN, comes news that the creators Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata have announced that their last chapter will be published in Japan next week on April 23.
The final book will be Volume 20, on sale in their home country in July. So, as Americans, we’re only halfway there, with plenty more books to come before we see the end. I’m glad to know an end is in sight, but it’s still far off.
