Anyone watching an simulcast anime, or more than one? Then when it is getting to the best part BAM!!! CLIFFHANGER!!! I am getting this in two of my favorite animes Parasyte and Yowamushi Pedal. Anyone else getting this also in these or different animes?

This is why I mostly watch completed anime. Theres still cliffhangers, but you can just start the next episode.

Attack on Titan was driving me nuts with the cliffhangers! Now I suffer from the cliffhangers in the manga

death by cliffhangers... that's a pretty good way to describe how Senki Zesshou Symphogear G was. seriously, nearly every episode ended on some kind of cliffhanger. what made it especially worse was that since it was orphaned, there was no set release schedule and sometimes the fan subs would take up to 2 weeks on an episode.

World Trigger. Most if not all episodes end on a cliffhanger.

One of the reasons why I only watch completed anime is to avoid cliffhangers. The wait for this past seasons shows to come to an end has been brutal...

I don't know why you people keep hyping completed anime. Skip Beat and Kamisama Dolls have each had me hanging from cliffs for years, with no end in sight.

Well Studio Pierrot has added a new weapon to their arsenal recently, the epic cliffhanger, wuxia series style at that(and damn, boy do they have it mastered).

They started employing such in Kingdom season 1, and omfg just about every single episode in the entire series has a epic scene, yet somehow they manage to end the episode smack dab in the middle of the most epic scene in the episode, pretty much every time.

Such anime are made to marathon, even more so then most anime, it was so painful having to wait for the next episode every week.

They're doing it again with Yona of the Dawn too(although It's not as painful, since Yona of the Dawn can't even hold a candle to Kingdom, and there aren't as many major events, so some episodes have to end with not much of a cliffhanger)

On the upside of things, the wuxia series style cliffhanger format, really works well with any type of Historica drama, not just wuxia series, so it really only sucks the first time through. Afterwards we can marathon them.

this is one of the reasons i mostly watch completed anime, when i watched all the episodes of HxH, i think i would have went completely and totally insane if i had to wait weeks for the awesome development to happen. but when watching shows that are currently going on it is very hard to avoid cliffhangers like in the case of Parasyte. But for some shows I leave them alone for about 3 months then go and watch them again, I'm currently doing that for Fairy Tail and Naruto.
