A question for Spiral fans and/or Japanese readers
I've been reading an English translation of Spiral: Alive online. As the atmosphere reached a climax, the last volume suddenly ended without giving the readers a clue as to how things turned out (even in the short run). I found out that all available scans had the story end too early. Therefore, it's either because of the original manga or because of the English translation.
The latter seems plausible, because I noticed there is no English version of the manga available on Amazon, so I conclude what I read was probably a fan translation, and may not be too reliable. However, there's always the possibility that the author chose to leave the ending open, and have the readers imagine the resolution, on pseudo-artistic grounds, in which case it sucks.
I would like to know whether the original Japanese manga has a decent ending. Note that in the translation there are 5 volumes and 23 (or 23.5) chapters, the last of which is titled Charlotte. If the Japanese version has more to offer, it would likely have an additional chapter. This question can be answered by a proficient Japanese reader (not necessarily familiar with the manga itself) by simply looking it up in Japanese.
Plus, in case the Japanese version does contain additional content, any spoilers will be appreciated.
