Sakamoto Days: Chapter 173

Sakamoto Days is a fairly modern and popular action comedy manga written and illustrated by Yuto Suzuki. It follows a retired and proficient hitman named Taro Sakamoto who enjoys living life with his family and running his neighborhood store. However, when someone places a bounty on his head, Sakamoto must return to the life he once lived to protect his family. The story has had 11 arcs (so far) and we’re currently exploring the eleventh story arc as of this writing. 

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 173 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 173 Release Date

Sakamoto Days: Chapter 173 will be released on Sunday 7th July 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. 

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. 

Moreover, a Sakamoto Days anime series has been announced via X/Twitter for those curious. It’ll air in January 2025 and no further details have been shared (as of this writing).
