The issue was published in Japan on July 13, 2016.
The last chapter of My Love Story!! is an extra-large affair: 100 pages in total. In addition, the August 2016 issue of Bessatsu Margaret includes comments from actor Ryohei Suzuki (who plays Takeo Goda in the 2015 My Love Story!! live-action film) and from voice actors Takuya Eguchi, Nobunaga Shimazaki, and Megumi Han, who play Takeo Goda, Makoto Sunakawa, and Rinko Yamato in the 2015 My Love Story!! TV anime adaptation.
It was also announced that the 13th and final volume of the collected My Love Story!! manga will be released in Japan in September of 2016. An English language version of My Love Story!! is published by Viz under their Shojo Beat imprint. Viz describes the 1st volume of the manga as follows:
"Takeo Goda is a GIANT guy with a GIANT heart.
Too bad the girls don’t want him! (They want his good-looking best friend, Sunakawa.)
Used to being on the sidelines, Takeo simply stands tall and accepts his fate. But one day when he saves a girl named Yamato from a harasser on the train, his (love!) life suddenly takes an incredible turn!
Takeo can hardly believe it when he crosses paths with Yamato again, and he finds himself falling in love with her… But with handsome Sunakawa around, does Takeo even stand a chance?"
