The Tomodachi Game manga’s ending is already on the horizon. The manga series is already officially in Tomodachi Game’s final arc and it’s possible the climax and final chapter are coming up soon.

On June 6, 2022, news leakers Manga Mogura and Sneaky both claimed that the Tomodachi Game franchise will have an important announcement soon.

Considering the timing of the big announcement is in June 2022, it will either be about the Tomodachi Game Season 2 anime or the Tomodachi Game manga’s ending.

“Tomodach Game by Mikoto Yamaguchi x Yuki Sato will have a big announcement soon,” claimed Sneaky. “Season 2 or series ending would be easy guesses right now.”

Keep in mind that this information has not been verified by any official source. As such, it should be treated as a rumor and taken with a huge grain of salt.

NOTE: This article will be updated over time with new information about the Tomodachi Game manga’s ending.

It’s also possible that the series could receive a musical theater stage play. But we can rule out some possibilities fairly easily.

A live-action TV show and movie have already been released. In Japan, the manga’s story was adapted into a four-episode TV drama and a two-part live-action Tomodachi Game movie that ended in 2017 with Tomodachi Game Gekijou-ban Final.

Tomodachi Game final arc began in 2020

The Tomodachi Game manga series by concept creator Mikoto Yamaguchi and writer/illustrator Yuki Sato. Serialized in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine since December 2013, it’s up to Tomodachi Game Volume 20 as of April 8, 2022.

Unfortunately, no North American publisher has announced an official English translation for the manga series. However, there are fan-made scanlation projects that are mostly caught up with the Japanese release.

In Japanese narratives, there is a four-act structure known as Kishōtenketsu.

  • Ki : Introduction
  • Shō : Development
  • Ten : Twist (complication)
  • Ketsu : Conclusion (reconciliation)

During the Twist phase, the story turns toward an unexpected development, and it contains the yama, or climax, of the story. Although the Tomodachi Game climax has not been announced yet, it will need to be announced soon since the creator is already talking about the conclusion phase.

In August 2020, it was revealed in the manga magazine that the series had entered its final arc. Therefore, it’s possible that the Tomodachi Game climax will be announced before the release date of the final chapter is revealed.

That means the Tomodachi Game manga’s ending must be coming up relatively soon. Stay tuned!
