What do you do when a long time series you like ends?

When a series that you've been reading/watching/playing for a long time comes to an end, what do you do? I normally get rather sad, and take a look back at all the great times I had with that series. I also use it as an opportunity to review my life and see how much has changed since I started involving myself with the series. This year has been quite full of great series coming to an end, so I've been doing a lot of reminiscing.

Good thing I won't end any time soon.

When A Town Where You Live ended I immediately sent out an email about it and the series as a whole (reflection?). I then swore to never read something where I feel the author is endlessly making it up as they go (at least until the next one...).

That aside and my almost bitter comment on Nisekoi manga dangerously reaching A Town Where You Live levels, I am usually angry. Not because the series I stuck with ended. I almost always am disappointed with endings of long 200+ chapter manga. There is no time for feeling sad when "the worst girl always wins."

I usually research into why it ended in such ways. I review the flags and research outside the manga world. When I heard certain rom-com manga I loved ended based on a fan vote my rage intensified and then too - I swore no more long romantic comedies (at least until the next one...[I'm obviously reading Nisekoi right now]).

Spoken like a true man.

I, too, move on--find a different series.

It depens: if it is very good (Death Note, Eflen Lied, Berserk, Lelouch,...) I migth do a marathon about it some time after it (8-12 months atleast) and also go talk about on forums, watch other people their opinion,.. In other cases I will just put it aside and search for another one.

As has been said before...the logical and easy answer is simply to move on. Why would I bother doing anything else?

Cry a bit. Feel a little empty on the inside a bit.

Then proceed to a find a replacement...

I search for fan material of the series and imagine how the characters in the series is continuing their lives without our knowledge.

I haven't had it happen to me with an anime yet because I've only come into the anime world about a year and a half ago. Most of the shows I like are either still running or on break, but will be back.

For American TV shows though, it is very saddening. You put in a lot of time and start to connect with the stories and the characters and suddenly it's all done. I just sulk and then once I accept it's over, I move on and look for replacements =D

Depends. What are we classing as long? To me 30-50 episodes is long, or are you on about shonen and things that are 200+ episodes?

I mean, we all move on, I just think it's odd that you would feel absolutely nothing over the series ending as some of you are implying. It's truly sad if you feel nothing when something you enjoy comes to an end.

Really, anything you've been following for a long time. Whatever you consider as a long time. I was thinking more like a manga you've been reading for years or something of the sort, but anything could work.

When Code Geass ended it hit me hard - especially considering the ending it had. Monster hit me hard as well. They're both terrific anime. But I just watched Naruto and some other shows and got over it.
