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.

I like ongoing manga because, then you know that there's gonna come out more.

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.
Did you say "nerd"?

Not "nerd" -- "node".

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.

I prefer finished mangas it's one of the first things I see before I start reading. Love so Life is the only one I check with some frequency.

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.
