    Don't Jojo DARE end until one final time loop undoes ALL the hurt and pain that bastard Dio Brando wrought upon the ORIGINAL timeline, letting Jonathan and Erina have a happy life.

    Two decades should be the max time a serialation runs. I bought Detective Conan because I love it only to find out that they stopped publishing it in my language. And there´s no way I´m going to get the english version that butchered the whole thing by changing the names alone.
    And Ippo has been out since the ´80s.
    At least in One Piece it told us when it reached the halfpoint of the journey although I´m guessing the 2nd half will be longer.

    Seeing as several of these titles will never have ending, I cannot help but laugh at this list.

    Yeah, I kept thinking 'who is gonna kill the endless cash machine?' with a lot of the titles. Some of them would need a decade of bad sales before their corporations gave up on them.

    Yeah, most of these are JESUS enough already rather than actually caring how it ends. Not all though - Vagabond, Berserk, Bastard could really use endings.

    Glass Mask is going on 40 years... and the writer said it was coming to a close "soon" in 2009. It will never end.

    So fucking sad that Miura apparently never had a plan for the series and was just continually making shit up all along.

    Shitty One Piece should have ended long ago. And no, I'm not just hating on it because I like Naruto and Bleach (though Bleach really should have ended with Aizen being defeated as well). I don't have a problem with long series, and I've never understood why fans of different long-running manga series often have some kind of weird rivalries going on. It's dumb and pointless.

    No, I just think One Piece is really awful is all, and I just can't understand why it's so popular. The story isn't the worst (though the way it is so stagnated and just drags on is kind of lame), but many of the characters are just too weird and/or silly, and the art-style is horrible, especially the way the female characters are drawn.

    If Bleach had ended with Aizen def it would have been way worse leaving it with many questions unanswered , revels etc it would have been a horrible move so no.

    actually kubo could have ended it with aizen being beaten. there really was no need other then pay checks for him to keep going. though. if he DOES end it and write a new title it's going to get canned easily if it's not better then bleach or if it is basically bleach again.

    Don't you realise how the very wording wording you use to talk about what you dislike of OP is extremely subjective? I'm not even going to try to outline why I think OP is great, just wanted to point that the ones who like it have exactly as many good reasons to like it as you have to hate it.

    The only difference is that we who like it are a vastly higher number than the people who hate it, and so it keeps going. If that makes you feel like a special and unique snowflake with exquisitely refined taste (Bleach, lol) feel free.

    No series is popular with most people.

    >> original trinity

    You mean Urusei Yatsura, Hokuto no Ken and City Hunter... or.. are you talking about those new series that started in the late 1990s?

    Actually One Piece is the most popular manga, and one of the most popular anime shows in Japan. Japan loves One Piece.

    and Actually One Piece has been doing WAAAY better than Bleach in Jump Popularity Rankings.

    It's still one of the original trinity that consistently ranks on the top 5 every week, not like Bleach who's yoyo-ing in the bottom, or Naruto who kept floating in the middle when it was still being serialized.

    The only thing that would make his refined taste (Bleach, lol) even more refined would be liking Fairy Tail. XD

    Yea right bc God forbid he likes something else and not OP , i don't like OP that much myself or i rather say not interested much , the character art also trows me off so that means i have a ''refined'' taste as well ? give me a break and let people enjoy what they want.

    imo OP should end much earlier then it is planned ( 10 more years ? rely Oda , rely) but hey it is my opinion and i am probably in the minority here bc it is the great and mighty OP right ?

    I couldn't handle NANA, at least the anime. I've seen some dumb fucking girls in my time, but Hachiko is retard incarnate. If I want to watch stupid people do stupid shit I'll take an extra shift at tech support.

    Lol Kochikame being much higher than Hunter X Hunter. Even though both have eternal spots in JUMP.

    sounds more like they want those guys job rather than seeing the series end. I by all means I am happy to know
    Guyver lives on, and that Golgo 13 is still around too.
    Also i find no trouble with that Kochikame manga.

    I think that in a lot of these cases on this list, the voters are afraid that the author will die before the manga properly ends. George RR Martin syndrome, if you will.

    well, one can die too, I mean accidents happen all the time, but I understand your point. it's just i feel so frustrated that some works, in different media ended, and well I will see no more of them, that i do like how you can leave manga and return and see more of characters you like, or how they return from time to time, like Cobra, Tenchi Muyo.
    I would only worry if i could only get stories from the ones in the list, but is not the case.
