“March Comes in Like a Lion” Manga to Conclude with Volume 18

To say Sangatsu no Lion is powerful would be an understatement. It is realistic and raw; it has managed to overwhelm its fans with its realistic portrayal of depression.

Fans have grown very attached to this series and wish it to continue. However, that is impossible, and it is time to say goodbye. It is a bittersweet feeling for the fans, and here’s all the information you need to know about the conclusion.

The 17th volume of Chika Umino’s March comes in Like a Lion manga, revealing that the manga is heading towards its conclusion. Umino said she would try her best for the final stretch and asked readers to watch over her.

Many fans assumed that the series had several years left. With finishing the Shishi-ou tournament, finishing Akari’s arc, and perhaps some Kouda family conflict, there’s a lot to explore.

Nevertheless, the Kouda stuff will not get fleshed out anymore. Umino Chica, in an interview, mentioned she had to drop the plotline due to its similarity to something her friend was going through at the time.

Even though the news makes the fans sad, they believe that Umino will deliver a very satisfying conclusion to Sangatsu no Lion.

The mangaka had been suffering from ill health for a while, and she could finally stop pushing herself. She can increase her quality of life and be comfortable.

Also, even if Volume 18 is the last, it would probably take two years to come out. So it’s not like it’s about to end next month or something.

Until them, you can observe how the manga takes shape and enjoy the final chapters.
