Quote from Karonhioktha
In your opinion, when has a manga outlived its welcome? Alternatively: How long is too long for a manga series? At around:
Feel free to modify these numbers.
All because I recently saw that the longest running manga recently ended Sept 2016: Kochikame
at a whopping 200 volumes.
There are other long-running manga that are at 117 volumes (Jojo), 94 volumes (Detective Conan), 184 volumes (Golgo 13), etc. Naruto ended at 72 volumes, and even now has a sequel.
When do you think enough is enough? I know some will say it depends on the story, chapter length, etc. but even then, the author may run out of ideas and the story will just drag. You'll start to wonder whether you'll still be alive when the series ends!
