I know CRoll has worked on producing original Anime. Have they or should they also give second or third seasons to shows that did not do well in Japan?

You know how Netflix or Hulu will revive a cancelled show?

What show that stopped too soon would you want to see CRoll revive for the Anglophone audience and why?

It probably depends on the copyright holder. For example I know a lot of people in the west want Bleach's anime to be finished but if Shueisha and Kubo don't want it I doubt Crunchyroll has enough money to change their minds. Anime is also usually funded by multiple companies. Here's a list of all the 2018 shows and who funded them https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nhT1ebLxejyagiiLET8ajDu9CnHaTrhsRsjNdiRfur0/edit#gid=1547867427.

According to Takahiro Baba (CEO of Visual Art's) it costs 400 Million Yen (3.6 Mil US) to make a 1 cour anime (https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2017-12-14/visual-art-key-president-reveals-cost-to-turn-visual-novels-into-anime/.125230) and that number seems to be backed up with Kickstarters so I would assume it to be accurate and I doubt Crunchyroll has the funds to throw that at anything.

Funimation brought it back , as well as Gosick . They just decided to allow CR to air it since they weren't going to dub it . I watched the first 2 episodes on Funi , then they took them down .
