Space Brothers Manga to End with Final Chapter in SeptemberSee you, space brothers.

Space Brothers, the manga by Chuya Koyama about two brothers who vowed to go to space together as kids will end September 22 with a “final chapter” included in the manga’s 43rd volume.

The manga has been running in the pages of Morning magazine since 2007, and inspired an anime series and movie and a live-action film.
Here’s how Sentai described the first collected DVD volume:

Mutta’s life has hit rock bottom. He’s been fired, blackballed from his profession, and even had to move back in with his parents. Meanwhile, the career of Mutta’s brother, Hibito, has taken off like a rocket as he trains for the job Mutta once dreamed of: becoming an astronaut. But is it ever too late to go after your dreams? Through a little coercing and a bit of covert activity, Mutta’s family and friends can get his resume on the right desk, but from that point on it’ll be up to Mutta himself.
