ANN writes: "This year's ninth issue of Hakusensha's Hana to Yume manga magazine confirmed that Tachibana Higuchi's Gakuen Alice manga will end in three more chapters. The series first premiered in the magazine over a decade ago.
Higuchi announced on Twitter in September that she was working on the layout for the first part of the final chapter in her magical school comedy manga. Hakusensha released the 29th volume of the series (pictured at right) in Japan last month. Tokyopop published 16 volumes of the manga before the company shut down in 2011.
Gakuen Alice inspired a 26-episode television anime series in 2004-2005. Right Stuf released the series on DVD in North America.
The manga and anime revolve around a seemingly ordinary girl named Mikan who decides to enroll in a magical school to follow her best friend. Mikan strives to prove herself worthy of being in the school."
