Oh, nvm I'm wrong.
I just saw someone mention it in a thread four or five days ago... Maybe the one about Sket Dance Manga ending. I mentioned Needless ending in the Sket Dance thread... No idea as to how I came about the information though.

Thanks for the advice though.

This has been one crazy ride. I absolutely loved the anime, and after the meh anime original ending, the manga was even better. Arcs like Saint Rose Academy and Bloody Rain were the best moments I had with any series. Ever.

But then came Eve's story and it was sort of a long lasting disappointment. It was disappointing but it was nothing compared to the City Arc. I'm not sure if Imai Kami got tired with the series or if they told him to finish the manga and this was his way of telling them "fuck you". The last arc was a never ending line of asspulls, the trademark humor almost completely disappeared, and they treated the best characters in the most shameful ways.

I believe the best moments of the series were when Cruz was on his own with nothing but his crossdressing and brain to save his ass. I'm a bit sad that the manga ended like this, but nevertheless it will always have a special spot in my heart.

I guess they thought that manga was

*puts on sunglasses*

was needless.

Now that the manage is done they should redo the anime. I liked it but they could definitely make it much better if they stick to manga material.

Hm guess I'll swap the anime for the manga then if it's finished and the anime had a lackluster original ending...

I remember watching the anime years ago and loved it. I've been meaning to read the manga for a while now and now that it is ending all the more reason to start on it.

Well, that's one series that ended.

I kinda wish shueisha ended 3 other specific series, but i doubt it since they profit from it.

I hope he makes a new series. I don't know. Something on the same groundbreaking level as Claymore, Berserk, and Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

I haven't read the manga yet; only seen the anime here so might give marathon it.

Jun 20, 2013 6:15 AM by Stark700

My friend won't be happy to hear about that! He's such a big fan.

On the other hand, good chance to watch the anime now.

Needless was my first few Manga. I stopped reading it at some point because the whole story somehow became so confusing. Still a great Manga though!

I hope there will be an Anime remake.
