Another chapter was released that advances the plot only slightly, but doesn't end it, and another side story came out that took place six years later but still didn't end the then-ongoing story.
A while ago it was announced that they'd publish a final 13 chapters (from 288 to 300), and now the official website for the manga is actually going to publish the chapters online prior to their print release! Doesn't get much better than that, folks. So if you've been waiting, here's your chance. And here's hoping it goes well this time.
Sidenote: how does Takei have time for all these projects? Isn't he working on Ultimo with Stan Lee?
