If you've been reading the manga you'll probably have seen this coming, but it's now confirmed that the final chapter of Bakuman will be included in next weeks double issue of Shonen Jump. After nearly four years of publication, it'll come to an end on it's 176th chapter.
It's a shame to see it end, but it's also probably for the best, as it's not the kind of story that will benefit from the authors dragging their heels to prolong it. No doubt that the duo behind the series will be back before long, and I'm sure many people will be interested in seeing what they'll bring to Shonen Jump in the future. There's also bound to be a few more seasons of the anime before they run out of content!
