In the case of Japanese TV dramas, the broadcasting period is often decided in advance (for example,Prime timeTV drama is broadcast for 3 months <1cool> is the mainstream), and inevitably the final broadcast time and outline are often predetermined. It is often done by expanding the time frame in the final episode.

The latter isDoujinshiAlso,CopyrightThe above problem also occurred.

In a work in which a consistent story is not the core of the work, multiple different final episodes may be drawn for one work. For example, Doraemon has been serialized in multiple magazines and also animated, and each draws a different final episode.Doraemon's final episodereference).

As with Doraemon, Sazae has a clear final episode,Evening FukunichiIt has ended once in the serialization in the marriage of Maso and Sazae. I will resume the serialization later, but this has ended due to the termination due to the author's circumstances.


Even in the case of non-story works such as documentaries, the last episode may be called the last episode if it is broadcast or published multiple times.

For TV/radio programs
