Quite happy about this, a lot of series just don't know when to quit! I think all series should run 10, 15, 20 or at a push 25 volumes to prevent them becoming stale and to let the manga ka move on to something else.
Look at some well known manga Death Note (12) Assassination Classroom (21) Bakuman (20) but then look at series like Food Wars (36) Bleach (74) don't even get me started on Naruto & One Piece! Would genuinely love to see something different from Eiichiro Oda but he's been doing One Piece for TWENTY THREE years! At what point do Luffy, Zoro and the gang sit back and say 'maybe this treasure ain't worth the hassle' 😂

Well, I believe Oda definitely has a plan on how to end it, but I think he claims that One Piece is something like 60% complete. I've probably got the figures wrong mind.

Eiichiro Oda is the George R.R. Martin of Japan 😂 they're on 90+ volumes now just end it at a 100 and call it a day. Let some other writer & artist do a spin off set x years later ala Boruto (but with One Piece I'd rather it be hundreds of years later)

I doubt that will happen. Given that there have been manga totalling 200 volumes in Shonen Jump, I doubt the workaholic Oda will ever stop.

He's not like GRR Martin, Oda is actually releasing One Piece. Yuuichi Togashi is more like GRR, though he at least has a reason for not releasing work other than writers block.

Unfortunately I think you're right, but all good stories need a good ending and again to compare to GRRM he'll probably die of old age before we actually get it...

It just depends on the series I think, One Piece still hasn't gotten stale after 20 years because of the amazing world building, great characters and each arc feels fresh and different to the previous one. For me, Promised Neverland went downhill after the first arc, and even with 12 volumes Death Note still went on longer than it should have.

I think Oda is more talented but Kishimoto and Kubo havent done anything of note since their long running series ended.

The only manga I follow that’s gone dire is attack on Titan and the studio change at the point it has us apt to my opinion of this “final” arc as the more world building the more you realize Isayama sucks at world building

This is what happens when you drag a series on for the money instead of having a clear vision of where it's going and how it will end.

AOT is not unique I this though, both Nisekoi and food wars have suffered similar fates
