because it is better for a story to end on a high note then drag out for so long that it when it finally ends it is consider a mercy kill.
Was Death Note really dragged out? I didn't follow it while it was actually airing/serialized but it made sense to me that the series couldn't end with Light's actual victory. Sure, the initial conflict was set up between L and Kira but I don't think it would've been a great conclusion if the manga had ended there.

it came up during the discussion in the anime when it air. L was suppose to Win but the editors wanted it to continue so L lost and M/N was introduce.

They don't drag things and if they wanted to end Bakuman, I'm sure they will. After all they will contradict themselves if the manga was talking about not dragging on the series but the series itself is.
Same maker of Death Note? That information I did not know at all. The art was so different for me to recognize.

We sort of havn't seen him prove that yet. Plus it'd be nice to see what Mashiro and Miho are like after they're married.

And I don't really see how you can be no.1 within the 8 weeks. Feels like a copout if within that 8 weeks they're no.1 for 2 or 3 weeks. Eiji was no.1 for 20 consecutively.

Plus there are so many possible sidestories to write about, Hirumaru and Aoki's wedding, Miho's dad, Kaya's kid... Bakuman ending? I call rubbish. 2/3 through the story, that's more feasible. Plus the makers of Death Note make Bakuman remember?

unless you want a Negima ending....

Mashiro indeed make that promise to his uncle. But it doesn't necessarily means the author would need a hundred chapters to show it, a few pages at the last chapter will be enough.

Actually, about how Mashiro and Miho's married life, I want to see it too.

As for sidestory, I think it'll be only about Aoki and Hiramaru since their love life was described in detail so far. Miho's dad? They probably just show his face only for the wedding, it's not like he's important in the first place. Kaya's kid? Yeah we might have some, in epilogue that is.

It seems, Miho and Kaya will be pregnant at the same time and the kids will be shown in the last chapter as a fact, like it was in the “FMA: Brotherhood” anime.

Is it just me or ending of Reversi is terrible? Just imagine that Luffy and Blackbeard died in the middle of the sea, and the chapter ended.

It also (somehow) reminds me of Negima ending somehow..even though they didn't use that kind of epilogue ending that Negima used for Reversi.

Well if the reception from the fans are good then at least it's good for them

I don't think Rurouni Kenshin's ending is a good fit for One Piece either, but it is an good ending.

I disagree with you all.

Wasn't the black guy supposed to be the evil(er) one?

And it's a proper ending, since it was built as a duel from the beginning.

Woulda been the right way to end Death Note too, IMO.

Yeah, without the proper context it does look shoddy. Who knows, maybe before those two pages were 20 of the same epicness.

Okay, now they need to solidify themselves as mangaka who make series that should be Hollywood movies.

I would like to say I have no clue what made every single character go "OMG BEST ENDING EVER", but the manga only showed enough pages total of Reversi to barely fill half a chapter so.... I'll just suspend my disbelief.

The number of volume that Reversi has is also about 5-6 volumes, which is about the same number of volume in Death Note that's still interesting for me (the one where it's still about L vs Kira) :P
