Completed series?


  • Premium Member

    Is there an easy way to find which of the book-series available here are actually completed, rather than ongoing?

    It feels like I have just a few to many ongoing series already that I'm waiting for new books in, so would be nice with a few options where I can actually read from the beginning to the end without running into more cliffhangers and/or loose threads :)

    The only one I've know of so far is "My Big Sister Lives in a Fantasy World", which I've already read when it was available as a monthly catch-up. So a way to search for more, or even just suggestions other than the one I've already found, would be greatly appreciated.



  • @quintswe no way to search on this site but here is a list of series that are complete and fully available on the site:

    Playing to Win in a VRMMO
    Bluesteel Blasphemer
    My big sister lives in a fantasy world

    Here are stand alone single volume series:

    Brave Cheonicle
    Yume Nikki
    JK Haru
    Last and First Idol

    Here are series that are complete in Japan but still being translated on the site:

    My sister can read kanji
    I saved too many girls and caused the apocalypse
    Demon King daimaou
    Ao Oni
    Infinite Startos
    Kokoro Connect
    Sorcery is Stabber Orphen
    Echo
    Apparently it’s my fault that my husband has the head of a beast
    Outbreak Company

    Grey Zones where volumes have not been released for a long time:
    Clockwork planet
    Me a Genius?
    Amagi Brilliant Park

    @Rahul-Balaggan I wouldn't list Clockwork planet and Me a Genius? as complete (fully out in Japan and fully translated in English). Sadly, both are ongoing series with no release date available for the next volume, too.

    P.S.: Me a Genius? is marked as complete on LNDB, but in reality the story is all up in the air and the author did mention a volume 4 being worked on at some point.

    @rahul-balaggan Thanks! That's a bunch of options for me to take a closer look at :)

    @rahul-balaggan Outbreak Company is also finished in Japan, and For My Daughter is basically finished with the main story.

    I agree that Genius is not properly complete. It is however funny and original and worth reading in any case.



  • almost 3 years on Clockwork, and 2 years on Genius, of course they could come back but i count them as out.

    if and when they release a new volume i will gladly eat crow, but for now i will call them finished...

    Only if you read the first 2 volumes though, the 3rd one is half of the story and leaves you with a huge cliffhanger since there is no V4 (yet).

    What about series that has a volume that serves as a conclusion? Overlord vol 9 was where the original web novel ended to use an example.Danmachi has a few places like vol 6 where it would be a good break point. Though these are not JNC titles and atm I can not think of any JNC titles with this.

    @drone205 Isn't Arifureta's main story done actually? I remember the WN ended with Arc 8 and LN V8 is out already. I thought V9+ would be the after stories. Or does the LN not match the WN and the main story has not ended yet?

    (I'm actually catching up on Arifureta and I've started V5 yesterday.)

    @terabyte Haven't read the WN, but by V8 the main story is still ongoing.

    @terabyte The Arifureta web novel has finished the main story and there are now almost as many chapters of afterstory as there are chapters of main story.

    As for the Light Novel it looks like there is a good chance the story will finish after 2 more volumes so about LN V10... but I don't know for sure, that is just a prediction based upon how the web novel flowed. We are caught up and need to wait for the next volume to come out in Japan though.

    @malloc Thanks for the update. After going back and checking the WN I see that the end of Arc 3 is actually volume 4 in the LN. So it does indeed look like V10 (or V11?) might be a good estimate for the main story ending if they keep up the same pace.

    I wrote a Wikipedia page on the subject. I didn't distinguish between "finished" series that were still being translated and series that still were being written. I did break out series that haven't had a new volume in over a year though.
