Preliminaries will end in chapter 309 and main tournament will end in chapter 373.

 

Most recent Raw chapter I've seen is 452, and I'm pretty sure they're up to speed...so translations still have almost 200 chapters to cover at the moment

 

Edit: Lol Duh.  The img he posted has the chapter number in it - 453  That said, the most recent chapters didn't feel like they were heading for an ending, so I'm a little disappointed.

i can see the japanese readers become bored from the 150-200 chapters long tournament(s) and pages of pages of Eichan just explaining his own notes to himself....

It's ending soon. It better end with Natsu and Eiichiro married. IT BETTER.

How far behind are we?

I want to believe there will be a sequel (of the manga) in a near future, Baby Steps deserves it too much

Maruo and Nacchan are such an adorable feels-good couple. I never get tired of extras about them.

Thanks for the update. Can someone rearrange chapter 297.5 please? I almost missed one great extra :P

Today is my birthday, I see 3 new chapters of Baby Steps. I can only begin to describe how happy I am ;_;

thanks as always for the updates, much appreciated. And the mandatory cliff hanger...

NACCHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

 

Wrong manga? Probably Yowamushi Pedal...

Yeah...  How the hell did this happen lmaoo..

I have a feeling Midosuji is going to win, but I want Naruko to win and regain what he lost back in the winter.  I would love to see the wheels make an appearance at the IH.

Midosuji always has plans up his sleeve.  I find it really bad that Midosuji is shown restricting blood flow to his muscles, that's really bad for you, especially with how much he's exerting those muscles, and how much blood is flowing.

i've shipped ships but this is the best fictional couple i care about, hands down. they're so good to each other... they make the other better... i could cry.

 

well, no worries about not seeing Nacchan for 4 years tho. in actual real-time 4 years, MAYBE, the chapter after the tournament when she actually leaves is going to happen and we can be bummed then.

I almost did cry. They're so sweet! =3

I really dislike how casually manga handle situations like that, with the whole 'study abroad stay apart for a while' trope. People meet start dating and get married in shorter periods of time than 4 years, and these Japanese kids are apparently always so confident in their relationship they dont even question for a second the difficulty in such a long term long distance relationship and the stress itll put on them. W/e i guess its all semantics in the end baby steps still goat.

 

Well, as you yourself mention in your comment they are kids, it's not like they can accurately predict what being apart for this long will do. And they both understood early on that their tennis careers were always going to get in the way of their relationship one way or another.

 

To be honest since I'd personally rather keep it light on the romance drama I like how it's handled so far.

If only the date lasted for few more chapters equal to the chapters a single match has

Best moment between Nacchan and Ecchan.

Yeah, If they are away from each other for 4 years, I hope that it skips it.

The Pete match was painful enough... but 4 years without Nacchan?!
We'll be reading their post-college lives with our friggin' grandchildren by then.
