Looks like most of you would at least give it a shot. Then there's those people who debated what counts as a "classic"...

In contrast, when too many threads are just left completely unresolved, and the manga-ka makes it clear that they have no interest in resolving those threads, I just go crazy. You built this awesome world with these crazy mysteries and you have no interest whatsoever in answering them? Certain kludge world mechanics are fine to leave alone (I don't expect Oda to explain why devil fruits exist, for instance--and I'm honestly shocked that the dragon ball origin story has been retconned and reexplained three different times: first Kami, then the Namekians, then the super dragon balls), but if you give your characters a big mystery in the world that they spend any time "wondering about" rather than "taking for granted", I expect them to fucking solve it

It really sucks when a new series with promise gets axed and has its potential snuffed out. But its even worse when it was a really good or great series at first then it gets destroyed by an axed. And now there's always a bad memory to end the formerly good series you used to love.
I have many examples but the number one example has to be Bleach. I loved that series and still partly do but man it that ending really destroyed a lot of its legacy. And now it always leaves a bad taste in my mouth when i think about it.

It honestly pains my heart to think about what could have been.
Just recently finished Nanashi no Asterism, and the non-ending felt extremely abrupt and unsatisfying, despite what was otherwise a fun and innovative manga, and IMO a comedy masterpiece. Then I looked online to find that the series was suddenly discontinued and the poor mangaka was given one chapter to wrap everything up (╯°□°)╯( ┻━┻
I don't want to live in this world anymore TT-TT
I want to be reborn in a universe where my favorite manga are allowed to be completed
I need to know if Tsukasa and her twin got their happy endings...
Honestly, despite all of Bloody Junkie's shortcomings, it was still a fun read, and I really admire the author for writing out the entire plot in the last chapter after the manga got axed.
And kudos to the scanlation team for translating the whole pages of text.
I wish more mangaka would do this if their story is unavoidably axed. I do understand why giving a concrete ending/explanation to a mystery/game-of-death manga would make more sense than a school-life drama that could get away with an open-ended non-end. But come on, Kobayashi-sensei could at least give us a teaser ~10 years later~ picture or something TT^TT
And what is Gangan Online even doing axing all these great manga, when these two series are the only reason I've even heard of their mediocre dirt-rag? (sorry, I know I'm being salty but... 😢)
