I am having some serious doubt, i was given volumes 1 to 70 of the One Piece manga and i looked to see Eiichiro Oda say a while ago that One Piece was only 70% (i think) over. Is it still worth reading it despite it will take years before it's over?

Oh what is going on, why is my post showing as broken up lines when i write my reply?

Copyapasta animu recommendations from the last thread:

Gantz

Speed Grapher for rapeculture

Shigurui Death Frenzy (manga version is best)

Soul Taker

Texhnolyze

Witch Hunter Robin (anime X-Files)

Poonoo, I'm not surprised you told me Ergo Proxy ended up not being great. It seemed like it had potential, but so few animu realize their potential. Deadman Wonderland was another great example of a wasted setup. It could have been cool.

Oh and Tokyo Ghoul. That shit gave me whiplash with how fast its level of quality snapped down to shit-tier.

Yeah you aren't kidding, it happens so fucking often too for some reason. Kaiba isn't as bad as others but even that was disappointing in the last two episodes. The thing is a lot of them only need a slight tweak to their endings and they'll be fine, it's not like they are fucked from the beginning, it's like they didn't have an ending planned.

I'd say read the first couple volumes and then decide it. It's pretty consistent, and even if the end several years from now turns out to suck as much as Bleach and Naruto did, you still have plenty of great story arcs that are more or less self-contained.

Many mangu and animu can't keep their premise straight and just fizzle out at the end.

Or they go for a fake "this isn't really an ending" ending that resolves nothing, means nothing and is nothing. Nice job guys, end on a fucking cliffhanger for a series that is never, ever coming back.

Then there's outright retard alert shit like The Big O, Evangelion, Panty and Stocking and typical Gainax endings in general where they're just throwing out whatever in hopes something is 2deep4uplots and gets mad critical acclaim.

Add Ergo Proxy to that list.

I think this is pretty much standard for anything based on a Light Novel, cause that shit doesn't even try to adapt the whole thing and is just meant to promote the novel.
