Double the I Love You Suzuki kun!! goodness: Volume 12 and the Official Fan Book out nau~ [UPDATE2]

Street date: 26 January 2012 according to Angelzon

I Love You, Suzuki kun!! 12 and I Love You, Suzuki kun!! Official Fan Book (Tiga Lancar Comic)

Suki desu, Suzuki-kun!! © Ikeyamada Go/Shogakukan [First serialized in Sho-Comi]
Published in Indonesia as I Love You, Suzuki kun!! by PT Tiga Lancar Semesta/Tiga Lancar Comic (3L)

So now we need only wait for the light novels, Suki desu Suzuki-kun!! Pure White Love and Suki desu Suzuki-kun!! With Precious Heart—oh, wait, I'm getting ahead of myself.

3L liberates I Love You, Suzuki kun!! volume 12 along with the I Love You, Suzuki kun!! Official Fan Book, the latter representing the third Ikeyamada Go manga fanbook 3L has published, after those for Moe Kare!! and Midori is a Tomboy/Uwasa no Midori-kun!!). The I Love You, Suzuki kun!! Official Fan Book reportedly supplies not-in-the-manga insider info on Sayaka, Chihiro, Hikaru and Shinobu from the time they were still middle-schoolers, plus character reviews from Ikeyamada Go-sensei and trivia that would only be of interest, I mean, thrill any Suki desu, Suzuki-kun!! fangirl/boy (including myself).

As for the lowdown on volume 12 —

Hikaru jumps off a cliff to save Sayaka. Sayaka finally realizes that she loves Hikaru, but is torn between that love and her gratitude to Takumi who has been her strength all this time. Hikaru, meanwhile, renews his vow to never let Sayaka go; his determination could be the key to Sayaka recapturing her lost memories...

Per earlier volumes, I Love You, Suzuki kun!! 12 is rated for [DEWASA] or Mature audiences.

BTW, can anyone confirm that Suki desu Suzuki-kun!! ends in volume 14? The Japanese synops I found for that tankou (2011.12.26 JP street date) opens with: The completion of the second part! (ついに第2部完結!!). Unless there's a third or college arc, I'm assuming that volume 14 is the series finale. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong (comment box's down there). «Edit No one took me up on my offer, but I'm now 99.99% sure that the last Suzuki-kun volume is 15, which streets 26 March 2012 in Japan. «Edit, Part II: Baka-Updates Manga indicates Status in Country of Origin is 15 Volumes (Ongoing).).
