Newest 12th tankobon is now available
The final chapter of Hidekichi Matsumoto's survival game-themed comedy manga series Sabagebu! is published in the January 2017 issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi shoujo manga magazine released today in Japan. To celebrate the end of the manga's six-year serialization, the author has been posting countdown illustrations on her official Twitter.
The manga had been serialized in the magazine since December 2010, and currently 12 tankobon volumes are available in Japan. Its TV anime adaptation produced by Studio Pierrot+ was aired for 12 episodes from July to September 2014 and is still available on Crunchyroll.

"But most of the people who are checking this Twitter are middle-aged men. It must be hard for them
to buy Nakayoshi?"
(*the magazine's target readers are elementary and junior high school age girls)
"No! I want people to witness the last stage of Momoka-sama in the magazine!"

"Sonokwa's last gesu..., it must be watched to its end. Any good way to buy Nakayoshi without

"This is your sister! Nothing to be ashamed of, if it's for your own sister, right?"
The author says, "I am sorry. These girls are stupid."
