How Many Chapters Will Sakamoto Days Have?
There’s been no indication that Sakamoto Days is going to end any time soon. However, Suzuki confirmed in a JUMP GIGA 2023: Winter (a quarterly sister magazine to Weekly Shonen Jump) issue back in 2022 that he has already planned an ending for the series. Yet, no specific date or timeframe for the manga’s final chapter has been stated (so far). Therefore, it’s best to expect this series to continue for a year or so.
What Happened In Chapter 142?
In Chapter 142, Shin met Kaiji at the Century’s Assassin Exhibition and learned the bomb is inside Mafuyu’s right foot, according to Kashima. Kashima says he possesses a remote detonator for the bomb but confirms it can set off automatically once Mafuyu perishes. Further, he explains the bomb remained undetectable through typical devices and has a blast radius of 4 meters. However, Shin believes the bomb should be somewhere else in the museum based on this intel.
Before confronting Mafuyu, he and Toramaru get into a debate, with Toramaru urging them to withdraw their current mission involving the JAA Chairman, Asaki. However, Mafuyu disregards her concerns and says he plans to tackle the mission alone for undisclosed reasons. Shin confronts Mafuyu in a heated battle and asks him why he’s siding with X. Mafuyu says X told him that he must defeat an Order member to join the group.
While they continue fighting, the chapter ends with Asaki arriving to the event, looking dissatisfied with it all.
