What. They didn't explain Shintani's technique this chapter! I'm starting to think that they won't explain it until the actual game against Ansei.

litterer!!!! samumenco, where art thou??!?!?!?!??

What? Not close? 25 volumes is nothing. I'll have them done next month.

Don't you believe me?

Last Inning is ending in Big Comic Spirits # 19 (07/04). The volume 44 is likely the last with 439 chapters total.

 

Ha ha... we're not even close.

these puppy eyes...

I only wish watching baseball irl was this exciting for me as it is in this manga. 

Damn, that was too intense.

I am freaking out, man!! Hang in there, Yashio!

Spoiler

 
Shiori! Never change.

Damn, these chapters are just too short...

It's so much fun seeing these guys become so devious in their baseball! And the manager is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

Woohoo let's end this game! Thanks for the chapter ~

all these Hatogaya's smirks... always confuse me

Before what happens?! One of the worst cliffhangers ever...

Little did Poppo know, he will be the one dating the manager in the future.

Don't hurt cute glasses lady!

He could see it if he opened his eyes...

Hatogaya rules this time too :)

Yashio was my favourite character. At least he had a moment to shine beautifully.

A chapter that doesn't have Poppo smirking in the last panel.

 

Shit just got serious.

You have your answer, but alas, you don't understand it. This manga is about explaining a sport that is one of the important facets of Japanese culture at just the right pace and in appropriate level of detail. It is certainly not for the mass foreign reader. If you believe that constitutes "snail-paced development" for you, then you need to read something simpler and more appropriate for your parochial level.

Implying it's acceptable for a manga to drag on ad nauseam so long as it's tagged seinen.

 

Look; Kaiji, Akagi and One Outs are all incredibly interesting, and they're similar to Last Inning in having a pivotal schemer protagonist. Poppo is simply dull by comparison, primarily because the reader is told he is a first class coach, but he is never shown to be one, or at least not in the chapters I've read. That's poor storytelling, and I was asking if that ever changed for the better.

 

Considering my query got answered with defensive knee-jerk sarcasm, I suppose I have my answer.

I stopped reading this after the snail-paced development in the first seventy or so chapters. Does it get better? Particularly, actual baseball games and Poppo doing something beyond the bog standard?

Nah, this manga definitely isn't shounen enough. Please don't read.
