Fans of Sho Yamazaki’s “Excuse Me Dentist, It’s Touching Me!” manga were dealt a blow on Friday, as the official Twitter account for the series announced that the manga will be ending in its next chapter. The tweet, which announced the launch of the manga’s 67th chapter, has sent shockwaves through the community of readers who have been following the series since its launch on Shonen Jump+ in May 2020.
The 67th chapter of the manga was published on Friday by MANGA Plus, who began publishing the series in English in August 2020. The website describes the series as “a human drama between a villainy-faced yakuza and a dominant dentist! Give it a read and maybe your ‘wall’ will be broken down…?!”
The manga follows the story of a yakuza member named Ryuichi, who has a villainous face but a kind heart. He meets a dentist named Haruka, who initially dislikes him because of his appearance, but as they get to know each other, she starts to see past his exterior and they begin to develop a romance.
Shueisha, the publisher of the manga, shipped the seventh compiled volume of the series on December 2. While the ending of the manga will be a disappointment for fans, they can take comfort in the fact that the 67th chapter is now available for reading, and the series has been collected in seven volumes so far, so they can re-read and enjoy the story over and over.
