It comes out monthly if you buy the Japanese magazine or every few months if you wait for the tankobons. The illegal stuff is not so reliable...


Ahh, I didn't realize it was monthly. Still it is a pretty darn good series.

Yeah, it is not a weekly series, it is monthly. Most seinen stuff is monthly.

I really enjoy it though after a really exciting arc the present one is a bit of a change, taking a bit of an odd direction, not what I was expecting. It has me just wanting it to end, for Ryota to wake up and find he was dreaming and Himiko is standing over him or something. So I may not buy the monthly magazine for a while now as I was only getting it for BTOOOM! so if I'm just waiting for this arc to end then I'll wait for tankobon volume 13 instead.

From the character sheet, it looks like there will be at least another 12 players to be introduced, It should be good to see how that goes.

Yes, 7 new characters were introduced in the latest arc which is part of the new direction I mentioned. Ryota is the only old character in the current arc aside from flashbacks.

Btooom is very underrated. Like others have touched on, it's unlikely (Scratch that -- very, very unlikely) we will have a second season. The manga is in English print, so I would support it if you can.

Yes, that's right! It's coming out in English now so buy it and support it and you never know... maybe we'll get a season 2 one day. It needs a lot of time before there will be enough chapters for season 2 anyways, there have only been about 16 chapters or so since the manga ended at chapter 51 so unfortunately it needs a lot more time before there will be enough, like 3 more years since it's monthly

Closed. Help question.
There is also a more recent (though not very active) discussion thread for this manga: /forumtopic-838189/btooom
