The Eternal FoolIn support of Goukenimaru's theory, I'll point out that there actually is leftover space in volume 20 for about two chapters.
EscapistThe was an ending? Where's Eiji, Fukuda, Hiramaru, Aoki, Hattori, and everyone else? Seriously, not even Takagi makes an appearance. Not to mention, the conclusion to the main romance also felt inconclusive. Granted, I stopped liking the series after the plot began to stagnate, but seeing the supporting characters pushed to the side like this strikes me as somewhat sloppy. Tie up some loose ends at least. I would love an adaptation of PCP though. *wishful thinking*
The Eternal Fool
Where's Eiji, Fukuda, Hiramaru, Aoki, Hattori, and everyone else?The entire significant supporting cast appeared for the previous two chapters. Including them here would have just bogged things down.
Nunc specula non gerens!Yeah, I had been reasoning with an Italian blogger that I was expecting the manga to be over in three chapters. I guess they'll pull a Death Note in the volume release and include an extra chapter set a few years later.
Legend of Korra Season 3 has begun!
The entire significant supporting cast appeared for the previous two chapters. Including them here would have just bogged things down.Oh yes, I understand that much, but I don't think the previous two chapters offered any meaningful conclusion to each of the supporting characters. Of course, I understand that Mashiro's romance takes priority, but what about Takagi? Isn't he a main character too? But anyway, I don't really mind much. I'm just glad that they finally ended the series since it was becoming stale real fast.
The Trope SeekerWell, the ending was good enough, but I was expecting a mega chapter that could show a lot more emotion and let us see the wedding and all. There could be an extra chapter. You never know.
Have you ever danced with tropes on the pale moonlight?
EscapistIt was rather forgettable, I think, which is not a characteristic of a good conclusion.
Soul Power!That ending was daft. I expected about 50 pages, like what they did when Light regained his memories. The next 'Where Are They Now' chapter better be a mega one. I refuse to believe this is the end.
Great and PowerfulWay behind most of you—getting to scanlations that worked for me was getting difficult at best, so I've just been following the Shonen Jump Alpha release. Enjoyed the second to last chapter, which has enough closure on most of the supporting cast for me. Not sure I'm going to be as pleased with the last one.
The Eternal FoolYou have to wonder what they'll do after they run out of Bakuman chapters.
Great and PowerfulAye, Viz still hasn't announced in the magazine itself. I suspect that for a couple weeks at least it will be sample chapters of their other shonen titles, but they may decide that running just five stories is okay now they've got our money :-(
The Eternal FoolPerhaps they'll decide to test the waters with something like The World God Only Knows? Or maybe they'll try to push an episodic slow-seller they already have licensed like Case Closed or Hayate the Combat Butler... Incidentally, there should probably be a Shonen Jump Alpha thread, for discussion of the stuff in the magazine at the chapter the magazine is showing them at, so people can actually discuss which being 3 chapters behind. EDIT: Seems that the announcement will be made next week.

Great and PowerfulHmm, good idea—if we have anyone else on TV Tropes who's a subscriber and not just reading scanlations.
SureeeeendaaaaSo, I just started watching the anime of this. Was totally unimpressed. And then "You don't need to be so serious. It's not like this is the Death Note." I cracked up laughing for like, five minutes after that.
Another Kuiper SenshiI had a question about the copycat crime of PCP and Takagi's reaction to it. Was that whole incident actually Ohba's reaction to copycat crimes of Deathnote? That was just my impression of things...
Great and PowerfulCould be, or just copycat crimes of manga in general. That is, after all, one of the big Moral Guardians issues with kids' entertainment.
