It looks like some fans have gotten tired already of the long and dragging story of the hit manga series "One Piece" saying it's the reason they stopped reading it. However, Eiichiro Oda's hit manga is already nearing its end, with about 20 percent to 30 percent left.
According to a report from Anime News Network, Oda's manga tops the list of manga that readers have dropped due to it being too long. The poll was conducted by the Goo Ranking website from December 20, 2016 until January 2, 2017.
A total of 3,526 people responded to the poll and it included manga series that are both ongoing and completed already. The report said that "One Piece" has already published 84 book volumes and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
It topped the poll with 542 votes, with "Detective Conan" coming it at second with 352 votes. The "Kochikame" manga came in third with 296 votes, while "Bleach" came in fourth with 207 votes. Both manga series are already completed.
One of the main reasons for manga dragging on for too long is an excessive number of hiatuses from their creators. This reason is also why some readers tend to lose interest in reading the manga.
Though the "One Piece" manga has been too long, it's actually nearing its end, according to Celebeat. The hit manga series is said to be around 70 percent or 80 percent complete already, and Oda already has the end in sight.
The manga is currently halfway in the "Whole Cake Island" arc, where the main character Luffy and his team is preparing to assassinate one of the Yonko pirates, Big Mom. The arc reportedly only has about 20 to 25 chapters remaining.
The anime version of "One Piece" is just about to begin the "Whole Cake Island" arc. Check out the preview for this arc in the video below.
