So I read the whole story and I really cried reading it, I guess I am a sucker for romantic dramas, but I have been researching and decided to ask here, how can I reach the writer that he must make it an anime, it is so good the writing, that it deserves an oscar or something, can smeone tell me though if it is getting an anime?

Most likely no. Anime is a glorified infomercial for currently running manga and novels to drum up sales so once the series is finished so are the chances of an anime.

A good example I should use to point out you could use is Restaurant to another world got an anime and it just started, so why wouldn't my wife is wagatsuma-san get an anime if Restaurant to another world can get one instantly? Sorry I just found your comment a bit confusing.

What he's saying is that the vast majority of anime are made in order to promote ongoing manga or light novels.

Think of it this way: the business model in Japan is reversed from the US. In America, authors break even on the book (or make modest amounts), and make a killing on the television show or movie. In Japan, anime tend to be a break-even proposition, but the manga and books are profitable (and the figurines and such are even more profitable!). Which means that most anime in Japan tend to be used as a way of promoting ongoing series--think of them as 12 episode commercials. This is also why so many anime cut-off in the middle of plot-arcs or have unsatisfying endings.

Their are exceptions, but those tend to be wildly popular shounen action series (think Full Metal Alchemist) or shows made for mostly artistic reasons. Wagatsuma-san doesn't really fall in either category.

Probably not. They kind of forced the ending to that series. It started with one arc, went to a second, then all of a sudden went to a third and it ended abruptly when it randomly switched to the ending arc because they cut the second arc short because the author decided to stop the series, because of bad sales. I doubt they'd dig it out considering it had bad sales anyways.
