Ever been familiar with this feeling? You start following a manga that starts of so beautifully that you are immediately hooked to it n voila! you suddenly see a ‘the end’ on the last page of the last chapter making your jaws drop staring at the unbelievable piece of information that another wonderful story has been stopped with an awefully cliche ending!! Boy! do you wanna kill that author for that!
So the popular manhwa Do You Want To Try is a classic example to this. It’s so incredibly annoying that you finally think things are getting interesting n suddenly there s a weird character death n the story ends! I bet the author had not even thought of that little story she added in the end to tat character there. Cuz there’s absolutely no trace of anything that says that the guy Woo Joo knew Hye Won before Sun Woo Bin ( can’t believe tats the only guy who’s full name I can remember) met her! He’s not even surprised to see her. Well, anyway, that’s not what I want to say here.
If the authors cannot continue the story they can at least had it over to somebody else who can think of a more sensible ending. Well… in any case, it was an enjoyable read!
So another example to a totally sucky ending is well, what do yo know, just another manhwa!! I have nothing against manhwa though. I have read way too many manga with major cliffhangers, enough to have all the hair out of your head pulled out! So the other example is I Accept You.
What caught me was that the story was truly interesting in the beginning, although not the best. But the entire manga drags on n on with only a couple of dialogues in each page (Admit it! It pissed you off!) n all it has in the end is the gal n the guy getting together n just when you have started to expect something more, it says ‘The End’!
Well, yeah there are several manga that ends with a confessing but they don’t end with a weird cliffhanger or a sense of emptiness when they end. Something like Moe Kare. This manga does end with a confession but the ending is so perfectly etched that it doesn’t leave you with a feel of a cliffhanger.
