UQ Holder Ending In the Next Two To Three Years

UQ Holder Ending In the Next Two To Three Years

Hey gang. I missed this over the new year, but Akamatsu-sensei announced that he will be ending UQ Holder in the next two to three years.

Apparently, the stress of doing the series is a bit much for him. And he is approaching already 50, so I can understand that. Plus, Akamatsu-sensei doesn’t have the staff he had back in the Negima! days.

UQ Holder! Magister Negi Magi! 2 - 12

My Ending Wish List

Since UQ Holder is going to end, here’s my list of things I’d like to see happen prior to the series ending.

  • Let’s hope Sensei takes three years, to do everything right.
  • I want to get Kuroumaru’s backstory and home world explored.
  • Touta should get a battle harem ending, sans Eva. That means Karin, Kuroumaru, Kirie, Mizore, Shinobu, and I’ll take Honoka and Isana as well.
  • Negi should be saved and end up with Eva.

If we get spoilers for the forthcoming UQ Holder chapter 156, I’ll be sure to post them.

In the meantime, special thanks to OverMaster for the tip! I always appreciate other fans giving me tips on things I might miss. And I’d love to hear any of your thoughts on UQ Holder ending.

    In fact, he’s already 50 ^^. But yes with this and the monthly release, i’m not surprised too with this news.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Ah. I wasn’t sure if he were 49 or 50. But yeah, funny how the body doesn’t handle things as well in middle age as it did in your teens or 20s. I’ve had some late nights due to work recently and it has me all jacked up. ?

    Not surprising. UHQ is a dumpster fire of tired tropes and uninspired storytelling. I do not regret dropping it all those years ago.

    I think it was someone on ANN (the UQH BD review?) that said that Akamatsu’s fanservice, which used to be one of his major appeals, is positively conservative by today’s standards. Compare it with “Monster Musume” or “Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs” and Akamatsu’s work only seems quaint and nothing more.

    As for his age, there are many mangaka way over fifty and older that produce work without any issues. JoJo’s Hirohiko Araki hits the big 60 in 2020 and shows no sign of slowing down. Kochikame’s mangaka drew a weekly (!) title until the series ended in 2016 when he was 64 years old. Kazuo Koike, Shirow Masamune, and Katsuhiro Otomo all still produce work in some capacity (some more regularly than others). If Akamatsu stops producing work after UQ Holder ends, he really has no excuse.

    This may seem bitter, but I lost all trust and respect I used to have for Akamatsu when I saw how the last fifth of Negima turned out and UQH in general. There are other, better mangaka out there more deserving of my time, money, and interest.

    • OverMaster says:

      Being fair to the man, not everyone ages the same way. Some people have way worse health when they’re 50 than others do by the time they are 70.

      …Akamatsu’s fanservice, which used to be one of his major appeals, is positively conservative by today’s standards.

      Haha! Sad but true. I know when I look for UQ Holder spoilers, I’m often stunned by some of the softcore H content that is in non-H magazines. ? Most turned out to be seinen titles, but a couple were shounen.

      As for his age, there are many mangaka way over fifty and older that produce work without any issues.

      I wonder if it is because he has less staff than before. Or if he has some sort of health issue that he’s not advertising.

      But as to your thoughts on Akamatsu-sensei and stuff, I can understand that. Things never hit the same level for me that they did for you, but I do understand your feelings.

    Will UQ Holder be finished in 2-3 years?
    Well, there’s still a long way to go for 2-3 years, and depending on sales, if the manga is successful, maybe he’ll think about it and lengthen the manga, because 2-3 years, that it would be 24-36 chapters, keeping in mind that maybe the author puts 10 chapters for the final battle, there would be very few chapters to finish the manga, I would like to see Kuroumaru’s past, if Kuroumaru will be woman or man, the past of ialda, the three characters of UQ Holder (Juuzou showed up, but not much is known about him, and the other two have not appeared yet) the tournament, etc.
    But with only 36 chapters, I dont know if it will give time to everything.

    As chapter dedicated to konoka and setsuna’s daily married life or wedding! I more about ayaka.

      Haha! I don’t think that’s ever happening. The Japanese LOVE for fans to make up their own version of what happened.

      I more about ayaka.

      Well, there’s a weak possibility of this because of Mizore.

  5. jay-ships-that says:

    I hope touta and kitty end up together

  6. Dartanas Blackthorn says:

    Negi should be saved, but Touta should end with Eva. Harem end isnt bad, but Touta and Eva are best pair.

  7. Cory says:

    I’m just wondering when the new anime will be released

  8. unsaid says:

    So even a monthly release is stressful on the body? That’s a shame. I hope he keeps making manga.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      As someone who’s close to Akamatsu-sensei’s age, I can tell you that it takes a LOT longer to recover from stressful things when you get older. For example, I used to be able to pull an all-nighter and quickly recover and get back on my normal sleep pattern. Now, if I have to work until 4am, it takes a very long time for me to recover.

  9. JUNIOR says:

    I really hope they don’t do the tribadism thing with honoka and hisana

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Honoka and Isana haven’t even received proper character development. They’ve only been filler loli characters who aren’t playing an actual role in the story, so I doubt an ending will do much to address them.

  10. JUNIOR says:

    I recently finished this old manga called eldlive some fresh Ideas tied to the current chapters of uq holder . Ok let’s put it this way touta wins the fight with baal during the fall of the tower but is betrayed by yukihime the same way nagis master betrayed him after floating around in earth’s orbit for 43 with a broken heart crash-landing on earth gave him amnesia where he lives a normal life for a couple of months however he is attacked by a group of smallflies which sends him on the run after retrieving his old weapon he pulls a FULLCOUNTER and sends them flying in which his friends and alies show up which warms his heart and causes his brain to overheat he is then brought abord a new ship which bla bla bla which they are then chased down by military personnel only for it to be a misunderstanding which leaves them to borrow their bace in which touta uses to booster his IQ and combat skills which they later set out back to back comedy until someone from the past shows up and entrust touta with the key to rescuing kirei (don’t know what that is) as touta brakes down into tears mourning his loss right before the battle everyone gets somewhat of a powerup which gives them a fighting chance as touta finds the MOB and a yukihime that he fails to save again fights against a combination of last boss characters but wins effortlessly saves kirei and confess to yukihime one last time before going to the mage of the beginning to negotiate which is how negi and nagi will survive pursuading the mage of the beginning to help him after which they rest the timeline and get it right kick as saving bitches the lost timeline becomes a dream and the future becomes a possibility as the final showdown begins and ends the ball the coronation and the awakening of asuna the restoration of the world and all that good stuff happens as touta starts college with his family .TO BE CONTINUED

  11. shanto says:

    i just want to see that touta and yukihime will love each other and became husband and wife,,

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      The problem I have with this is that this becomes inseki–pseudo incest. Eva, as Yukihime, raised Touta for two years. So even thought there’s no blood ties there, the ick factor is there.

  12. JUNIOR says:

    Wait did touta graduate high school off pannel or something

  13. JUNIOR says:

    I wanna see touta or someone else roast mizore about that hippocratic attitude of hers

  14. JUNIOR says:

    I wanna see touta and his siblings family bond I mean cutlass honoka and isana

  15. JUNIOR says:

    I wanna see touta raising his 70 what was it again siblings on the akashik skywheel

  16. JUNIOR says:

    I wanna see touta with a superman physiology instead of wearing a barrier that can crack and break I wanna see how he generates a bio energy forcefeild

  17. JUNIOR says:

    I wanna see the return of chao lingshen

  18. JUNIOR says:

    But then again there’s something up with toutas speed base touta scales to sub sonic speed with with demon advent or maten taiso and high day walker or grand king of vampire as I would call it clocking at multi-mach and raten taiso still being at relatively close to lightning speed does this mean that toutas new form will be at tachyon level or massively faster than the speed of light
