I really enjoy on-going Manga!Weekly though!Like OP,Eden on ori,Reborn,Gantz etc There are good Monthly that i read like DW or Claymore but still one month is too much to wait!BUT the Hiatus are the worst!!!What is going on with Liar Game and Berserk is ridiculous,and they are both in my top list*sigh*

If something is really good i can't wait for it to finish and then read it!No way!On the other hand i'm really happy(and lucky) that i start reading Deathnote,20th century and FMA after they finished!Just imagine, that i had to wait for the next chapter, makes me crazy
This world...is rotten

I don't like on-going manga, waiting for the end of the story is too annoying, and when a new chapter come, i've forget some stuff i've ever readed, so i prefer to wait most of the time, at least to have a decent number of chapter to read at once.

I like completed manga because then I don't have to wait and I can kind of see how much money I will invest in the series if I decide to buy it.

I prefer completed but I'll read on-going ones if I don't feel like waiting.

In the beginning, I didn't really checked it manga is finished or not. But now I look at the reading list and see... I see 3-5 chapters I need to wait impaicanyly for. The worst thing is that except one which is published once a week (Nonlesse), I need to wait another month (at least) to the next chapter. (Though the writer of Skip Beat is sometimes nice and gives a chaptr after two weeks, the chapter afther can come a month or even 2 month later). You really think I rmemember what I read last month? I don't, I have an awful memory. So in the, I don't understand too much (Vampire Knight) or just count the days to the next chapter (Skip Beat and Kuroshitsuji).

To conclude it all, I don't intend to even 1 more ongoing manga to my list.

I highly prefer completed manga.
Even for on going, I generally read it in batches.

I usually enjoy completed stuff more because its less confusing and at a certain point i just stop caring.

Like for gantz i have no idea what is going on anymore and i just dont really care about the lower half of my watching list.

But i am impatient so i read ongoing stuff anyways

Completed manga anyday. I hate going back into the manga a month later just to vaguely remember the characters or the plot. At this point, I've read almost as much ongoing manga as completed.

Then again, there are some ongoing manga I wish would never end. If One Piece ended, my life would be over xD

On-Going manga... Because it's depressing when I know something that got me really hooked up already have it end decided... and even if what I read are crap if it's already completed, I felt somewhat obliged to read it to it's end.

It depends, for example: Claymore. Suprisingly, it's still on-going and when the manga leaves me wanting for more, of course I'm going to see every single chapter that comes out!

But if it's a manga like GDDG: Dogs, I'd rather put it on-hold until it finishes so I could read it better without having to wait for any volume and chapter to come out.

Completed, because my memory sucks. I'll have forgotten everything I read in the last chapter by the time the next one is translated, and hate having to re-read the last few chapters every time. Especially if I'm buying tankoubon, ugh. Too often they have several months' breaks in publishing.

Also, if a series is hundreds of chapters long and still ongoing (read: One Piece), it discourages me from starting no matter how interested I am. It seems like I'll never be able to catch up.

Mix feelings. Manga like Liar Game, I would prefer it to be completed so I can just read the whole thing. However, manga like A Town Where You Live or Good Ending, I kinda like the weekly releases. It feels like you're growing with the character in a sense as time goes by.

On going.

The speculating between chapters is great. You never quite know what to expect, whereas you're likely to hear more spoilers with completed series.

Almost always finished, especially if it's long and ESPECIALLY if I plan to buy it. I like some reassurance that the ending won't completely suck, or that it won't suddenly turn into a never ending series. Plus, I tend to get distracted if it's chapter by chapter and forget to check.

Most of the manga i am reading is ongoing and since it's mostly on a weekly basis and a few monthly i like to keep up to date on the certain manga's while others i may wait out a week or two.

I hate ongoing manga. Im reading one right now (Alice in Borderland) and it is the hardest thing ever! You want to know what happenes so bad, bu there is no way to know. Same with anime. I SHOULD wait till it all publishes. But I start watching/reading anyway.

I dont like watching something that is Ongoing, because I always have to wait for the next ep/chapter. But especialy at manga, this is really annoying.

Either is ok with me, on one hand, if it is finished, you can enjoy it in it's entirety right then. On the other hand, if it hasn't concluded, it gives you something to look forward to every month or week.

I definitely prefer to read completed manga, as I'm guaranteed to be able to finish. I started reading Corpse Party: Blood Covered a few years ago, and it's still being translated... slowly.

I prefer completed manga. If I read on-going manga I tend to enjoy it less since I can only read one chapter once in a while. I get more into it if I read it all at once.

But if the manga has been going on for a while and has quite a number of chapters and is satisfying enough (sometimes they're not even if they have a lot of chapters), I don't mind reading on-going manga. I will still enjoy the updates less than if I had read it all in a row tho.

I think a big number of people would just agree with this.

I prefer ongoing manga to completed ones.


It's a lot more fun to keep thinking about what will happen next week/month/whenever the person decides to publish. It's a lot easier to stay in the fandom instead of simply reading, putting it on my list and forgetting about it.

Always finished. Because it takes too long and I start reading other things and then I forget almost all the details.

Just like anime. I just start something that is 100% completed.

haha not when you start forgetting what happened in the series ;_;
the pain of reading 100+ completed manga per month is forgetting the past ones

I hate it when translations suddenly stops and the project is dropped, and I dislike reading a lot of manga at once - so I try to find more of completed manga, with completed translation. Sure, there is certain charm to reading manga weekly/monthly, but when you are busy for a while and suddenly there is 30+ chapters to catch up - it's a real pain...

I would typical like to read manga when its completely finished. If its popular and still on-going then I'd wait for a bunch of chapters to come out so I can marathon reading them.

Ongoing. I think someone mentioned it before, but it makes staying in the fandom a lot easier and I love making theories and watching them be crushed and killed and burned.

Other than that, it's a little tough having to wait a week or a month for a new chapter each time, but the day the chapters are released makes me so happy that the wait is usually worth it. Plus, I binge through completed manga do fast I barely read them at all.

Completed ones. I read the ongoing ones that have a lot of chapters, but the one week or one month wait for the next chapter just kills me.

I prefer ongoing manga, because it's nice to know that it's still going on. What I find annoying with completed manga is that you know on beforehand when something has a rushed end. For example Cage of eden, you can really enjoy it while it was ongoing, but suddenly they say it is completed in three chapters. I thought what how can it be complete, it's in the middle of the plot. If you know on beforehand that a series is rushed in the end by knowing it's complete you can't enjoy it anymore as with an ongoing series.
