I usually want more of it and then I'm sad that it's over. It's nice to be like "Yeah! Another manga completed!" but I just feel sad if I really liked it.

No, not really. Unless it was a long-running great manga, then yes.

Mixed feelings as usual
when something comes to an end,
but not depressed.

If I was reading it for a long time, yes. After I finish it, it turns into a large hole in my daily life. "Now what to do?" and stuff like that.

Yes none It's silly but yes, I do get depressed but only for good manga. It doesn't matter how long the manga is. Let it be 1 volume or several more.
In fact, for short manga, I even put off reading because I don't want it to ends /shot

Uh...that's sorta extreme to get depressed over a manga.
I've only been disappointed that the manga has ended. That's the extent of what I've felt.

It depends I guess.

If the anime, movie or manga I'm reading is really good and depressing and it ends in a really depressing way, I will also be very depressed. For instance, if you've ever seen the movie Grave of the fireflies, that's like depression from beginning to end. Saikano was also another example
Spoiler (highlight to view)
of a depressing story that led to a depressing end.

There's a different type of depression though, when an amazing series ends or you've caught up to the current releases. Basically, you're so addicted to it you can't help but feel depressed that there isn't more to read. Some examples of when this happened included One Piece, Tower of God, Ubel Blatt, Berserk, Emma, Gantz and so on.

I'd say the last type of depressing(for me anyway) is when something starts off amazingly and somehow becomes mediocre or really bad but you finish it anyway and afterwards you're just like...where did it all go wrong? Some easy examples would be Hunter x Hunter, it started amazingly and then the mangaka got sick and the quality of the art became almost unreadable. After this he just did a couple releases every now and then and took huge hiatus'. I guess I don't blame him though, he's written enough awesome stories for me to forgive him but honestly, Hunter x Hunter is one of my favorite series ever. This next example is how a mangaka can somehow change from awesome from one story to bad in another and then just unreadable in his latest work...yes, I'm talking about Anzai Noboyuki. Flame of Recca is definitely his magnum opus and it seems it shall remain so. Mar wasn't bad but it never became was just a mediocre series that I could kill time with. Then came Mixim, I gave Mixim 3 chances by starting and getting disgusted then returning after a month or two and still being disgusted. Waited a couple months until my last attempt and I just couldn't take it, Mixim is definitely his worst work yet. He progressed from amazing to mediocre to horrid, kind backwards but whatever, I still love Flame of Recca and reread it occasionally. I could probably look through more lists to find more series but I'm tired of writing about this depression so I'll end with one more example, Pastel. Pastel started out great and progressed to still being great until at some point, unknown to me where things just became really boring. No progression, just really mundane slice of life chapter by chapter stories that never really carry over. I will still read Pastel when it finishes but it's very disappointing and depressing to see something great become the boringfest that it is.

I wrote much more than I was expecting to write...woops.

Sometimes, depends on how good the manga was.
If it was REALLY good and I feel as if it could have continued..
I go into what I call "MANGA WITHDRAWAL."
