There are some manga I wish had lasted longer.
Millennium Prime Minister
Suki (CLAMP manga)
Sadly Millennium Prime Minister manga lasted only 4 volumes. It is a shoujo romance comedy about a 16-year old down-to-earth schoolgirl who was minding her business until she ran into a strange guy who seemed enchanted with her and proclaimed her the First Lady of Japan. Then she ignored him and later on, she was shocked to learn that guy whom she ran into was the Japan's youngest prime minister (at the age of 25). I enjoyed reading this funny and sweet story until the end. But I feel that 4 volumes seemed too short. The manga should've lasted until 8th or 9th volume.
i could be wrong or perhaps i saw this on another forum but isnt this kinda similar to the thread manga you wish never ended? sorry if im getting confused with onemanga or something
Gonna have to say Bremen. It was incredibly well paced in the beginning, but towards the last 15 or so chapters, the pacing was just shot out of a cannon and ended so abrupt. I really wish it could have had a much better paced ending instead of the one it has now, and more than likely forever; I highly doubt it'll get the Shaman King treatment.
umm id like a few series to of lasted longer one of them being death note, and i never want gantz to end ever ever ever
Double Arts. It had such a great potential for becoming an amazing manga. Unfortunately, just when things were starting to get pretty interesting and we were beginning to learn more about the characters the series got cancelled. I wish Double Arts would have lasted longer, especially after reading the last chapter.
↑ This is one of those instances where the gaijin community doesn't see eye-to-eye with Japanese readers. It's really a pity.
Another manga that got cancelled was Kibengakuha Yotsuya Senpai no Kaidan (also from WSJ). The mix of mystery and the supernatural was intriguing as well as the unique artwork. Who knows what would have been in store if the manga was allowed to continue.
Totally agree with Destiny on Double Arts. Such a pity it got canceled.
Another series I wish could have lasted a little longer would be Psyren. It had a decent ending for the time it was given, but the operative phrase here is "for the time it was given". Honestly, it could have been better if it had even a couple more weeks, which isn't something Jump couldn't have spared considering it didn't have a new series to replace Psyren for a good number of weeks
I also wouldn't have minded a part 2/continuation of Hana Yori Dango. It did last a good 30+ volumes, but with the kind of plot it had, it could really have gone on forever and delved into their lives when Doumyouji returned, they got married etc.
I have a feeling Otomen is reaching its ending. (or has it ended yet?)
It is such a good and unusual shoujo manga. There are lots of interesting characters, you are most likely to find one you really like. I will be very sad to see it end.
Even though i am happy with its ending, i would love to see a continuation of Harlem Beat and Slam Dunk.
Clover (by Clamp) is an unfortunate series where it was forced to end without conclusion because the publisher went bankrupt.
I really love Hikaru no Go, and i feel sad to see it end with an open ending so abruptly. I feel that there are a lot more stories that can be told. D:

Millennium Snow felt to short. It's only two volumes, probably by design, but the main romance felt rushed. Another volume or two would have given more time for the pairing to develop more naturally. Otherwise a good manga.

I wish Yu Yu Hakusho and Psyren lasted longer. I would have liked to see some of the fights in the last tournament, like Mokuro, Yomi, Yusuke, Kurama, and Hiei fighting, especially Yusuke vs. Yomi. Same with Psyren... the final fight was seriously lacking. Moar fights plz.
Seems like I will have to jump onto the HYD bandwagoon too. But we can't do much about the fact, that most of the shoujo romances end after they leave high school. Koukou Debut is one of those too. Just when Kawaharas art had grown so much, it was already over. Cat Street[from Kamio "HYD" too] was one of my best reads in the past years, had a wonderful conclusion, but more wouldn't have damaged anyone. XD There's also Midori no Hibi and GTO for the comedy. Luckily the later one got a spin-off, but I don't like the change of places so much.
In the scanlation department I would like to see Crimson Hero being done again. :/ As well as those few last chapter for Matsuri special.

I wanted Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro to last longer. Its length and ending was fine the way it was so the reason is purely selfish. There was a moment in the series where I became enchanted, and I remember spending an entire night reading it. I wanted to know what was going to happen next so I quickly devoured the chapters.
Imagine if I was reading it while it was still on-going: the whole week would be agonizing in a good way. It'd be tough, but I think the reading experience would be much more exciting. This is a weird reason; I know.
