The story has had 10 arcs (so far) and we’re currently exploring the Assassin Exhibition of the Century Arc.

If you’ve been following this manga, you may be curious to know when the next chapter will be released. Well, wonder no more!

Here is everything you need to know about chapter 164 of Sakamoto Days, including the release date, time, and where to read this.

Where can I Read Sakamoto Days?

Sakamoto Days can be read at a number of different places online. Viz Media is available for those in the US and Canada, while Manga Plus also has the rights to drop new chapters. However, it will also be available to read on Shonen Jump too. 

The printed volumes only go up to number 14 in Japan at the time of writing, so reading online is the definitive way to read this one.

Sakamoto Days: Chapter 164 Release Date

Sakamoto Days: Chapter 164 will be released on Sunday 28th April at approximately 3pm (GMT) / 7am (PT) / 10am (ET). Of course, it’s really dependent on how quickly these chapters are uploaded. Expect this to be pretty close to the release time though.

All other chapters are available to read on the above websites, while the ongoing anime is also available on Crunchyroll.

Expect the chapter to be roughly 20-26 pages long. This is also a weekly release so expect the next to drop in a week.

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 had 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 163?

Chapter 163 of Sakamoto Days begins with several of Slur’s acquaintances discussing Slur’s plans and Haruma’s silence. One of the men tells the other to stay quiet since they feel someone from the JAA (Japanese Association of Assassins) might be listening. This person checks a toilet stall and dies seconds later by Takamura. Takamura exits the stall and starts assassinating Slur’s other men.

Meanwhile, Akao (who is taking over Slur’s body) wants Nagumo and Sakamoto to murder her/him. However, Nagumo disagrees. He suggests that Akao controls Slur’s body for a while. Akao’s afraid she won’t be able to keep Slur in control for a long time. Sakamoto chimes in, stating he doesn’t want to murder Akao/Slur. Akao grabs Sakamoto and argues with him.

Sakamoto tells Akao that if Slur returns, people will want to kill him. However, he says nobody must perish if Akao resumes control over the body. Ultimately, Sakamoto wants Akao to have full control over Slur and live peacefully amongst him and the others. Before Nagumo chimes in, a new alert breaks out across the museum.

Based on the announcement, Nagumo, Slur, and Sakamoto have been designated as wanted criminals. Additionally, the person speaking says the JAA wants these individuals dead because they’re now conspirators against the JAA.

We receive panels of Shishiba, Osaragi, and others’ reactions to this news. Nagumo feels this is the JAA chairman’s doing. He wonders why the chairman would go to such lengths. Simultaneously, Slur regains control over his body. Before Sakamoto and Nagumo can respond, Takamura crashes from the ceiling and arrives on the battlefield. 

The chapter closes with Sakamoto and Slur dodging Takamura’s attack.
