I don't like most of them, since it's rushed and there's no background but they're not that bad for a quick read.

Yes and No, I like them because they're a quick, good read that has a conclusive ending (unlike many other ongoing manga), but I dno't because I also love to watch a plot unfold and characters develop (thus making me in favor of ongoing longer series)...I guess it depends on what I want to read, sometimes I'll just be in the mood to quickly read through something.

I enjoy them if there's a good end to them, nothing cliffhanger-like just a good end wich makes you feel good.

i love really them! think i am the only one saying that i love when they are super good and then there is just no more... it is such a teaser o r maybe the wrong way to put it. I am just tired of things getting ruined because they just go on and on and on... i want things to be at it's peak when it ends quality waaaaaay over quantity

Yes, but not the ones that leave a cliffhanger or the feeling it is the first chapter of a series and is just an open ending.. it's not even an ending at all. I'm specifically talking about the Hungry Joker one-shot which I loved and I was disappointed when the manga series started and threw away everything from that one-shot.

Yeah, I like them because they get to the point. Some manga, especially shojou, just drags on and on, but with one shots, it's progressing quickly because they only have a certain amount of pages.

not really, i love manga that has 3 or more volume. one shot made me want more and sometimes it feels like the story wasnt complete.

I really like them, often it allows mangakas to spend more time on detail, plus a much more character driven story can be created, it also gives good writers/artists a gateway into having a series which is always great

I love/hate them. It depends really. I really don't like the ones that I end up falling in love with, because I always want more! But there is no followup or anything, ugh makes me angry.

if they are well written, but you don't know that until after you buy it. of course thats true for series..how many times have I started to read a series and after a few vols in it starts to stink.

I really like oneshots. I read a lot of romance manga and sometimes the one chapter or one volume stories are the best.
