Looks like it’s finally time to say goodbye to Aoba and the rest of the Eaglejump Company crew. This is because Manga Time Kirara has announced that Shoutarou Tokunou’s New Game! manga is finally about to end. Its final chapter will come inside the October 2021 issue of Manga Time Kirara Charat, which hits the shelves on August 27, 2021.

In addition, Manga Time Kirara’s Official Twitter Page also announced that the manga’s 13th and final tankoubon volume will be shipping out on August 27, 2021. And on that same day, they will also be releasing a new artbook based on the manga as well.

The hit workplace manga received a TV anime adaptation in Summer 2016. Doga Kobo animated the project, along with an OVA. It also received a second TV anime season, which aired in Summer 2017.

Here is how MyAnimeList is describing the anime’s story:

Since childhood, Aoba Suzukaze has loved the Fairies Story game series, particularly the character designs. So when she graduates from high school, it is no surprise that she applies to work at Eagle Jump, the company responsible for making her favorite video game. On her first day, she is excited to learn that she will be working on a new installment to the series: Fairies Story 3—and even more so under Kou Yagami, the lead character designer.

In their department are people who share the same passion for games. There is Yun Iijima, whose specialty is designing monsters; the shy Hifumi Takimoto, who prefers to communicate through instant messaging; Hajime Shinoda, an animation team member with an impressive figurine collection; Rin Tooyama, the orderly art director; Shizuku Hazuki, the game director who brings her cat to work; and Umiko Ahagon, the short-tempered head programmer.

New Game! follows Aoba and the others on their adventure through the ups and downs of game making, from making the perfect character design to fixing all the errors that will inevitably accumulate in the process.
