    Default Enough Already

    We've all met it -- the series that went on Far Too Long. Whether it's from a premise stretched out beyond its inherent elastic properties, or the story morphing into another (and lamer) story, or simply a jump over the shark, there's a place you realize only in hindsight that you should have stopped. While you can't change your past, you can warn others. Do so here.

    To allow people the most enjoyment they can, please try to avoid spoilers, even if the event is what goes wrong. Especially then.

    My first entry:

    BxB Brothers. Cute concept -- kinda like Ouran High Host Club might have been if the mangaka had been on angel dust instead of smoking crack -- and good funny. But then it turns from comedy to romantic comedy, and then to a romance drama with occasional hi-jinx. It's hard to pin down where it goes irredeemably bad, but if you reach the basketball camp, you've gone too far. Give it up then.

    Beck, Berserk, 20th Century Boys, Gantz... they've all suffered from pretty wretched falls from grace.

    Berserk. Not that I don't like it, but it definitely changed, and not for the better. But it has hope, it really does. ^_^

    Still... I'd have to go with Mahou Sensei Negima as my ultimate choice. It was cute at first, but it got *really* confusing and I really can't read it anymore. Maybe once the chapters pile up, I'll go back... but as it is... >_>

    ...and that's rare, because I absolutely love long manga.

    Yes, but where should I stop reading?

    And same question for Mahou Sensei Negima, Digi.

    I'm not sure with Mahou Sensei Negima. Maybe before the festival arc... that follows into another one and gets boring. You'll have unanswered questions but that's where I'd have stopped.

    Tenjou Tenge, it was sweet asskickingness in the beginning but then when superpowers and all this other crap got introduced i had to put it down. First time ive ever done that with a manga, not being able to stick it out due to sheer conundrum and asininity of the plot.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    All of the people who said Berserk need to be burned at the stake.

    The correct answer: Naruto and Bleach.

    Beck when the long break started.

    Berserk, don't stop reading. The newer arcs are still overshadowed buy the Golden age arc, Volumes 3-14. It is still good, but people are turned of by the newer fantasy aspect of the series.

    20th century boys, I heard goes bad at around Volumes 8-11, not sure on that one. But at that point you may as well finish it.

    Gantz does not get bad, the pace just does not change. And the artists repeated breaks for what seems to be no reason, pisses people off. If you have not read it, read it, but once "Phase One" ends give it a while till you read it again, Just to let the chapters grow.

    Also the guy does not know what he is talking about. I can only see one Manga that is suffering from a 'wretched' fall 'from grace.' Beck BTW.

    since i didn't buy many long manga(20 vol+), so it doesn't matter to me that much. it's not like they are stealing my money. But if i'm pay for those long manga, i would be pissed too.

    manga like naruto and bleach i just download them, so i have no right to complain. people who only download has no right to complain anyway. those companies are not going to give a damn about our opinion since we are not paying their bills.
