Hello all anime fans. Particulary Shoujo fans. And even more specifically Skip Beat fans. I have recently become a fangirl of Skip Beat and have just finished watching the anime (which was brilliant, F.Y.I.). I'm just starting the manga but I know for a fact that Skip Beat is an ongoing series and there's plenty more of it for the producers to make anime out of. So, why haven't they? Do they think it will not sell? Because if that is the case they're obviously misreading public demand. Silly them. Many girls (and boys too) love Skip Beat. Whether they have just watched the anime or read the manga or done both (as I am aiming for), I feel that you just can't help but love it. The characters! The expressions! The spirits! ...Enough of that though. I'm asking why there isn't more anime for Skip Beat. If anyone knows a good reason why I'd love to hear it. Or, if anyone has heard that more will be made then that would be most lovely as well.
So, for all you Skip Beat fans, please feel free to answer my questions (as I feel they are reasonale questions), and also, feel free to use this as space to vent any feelings about Skip Beat, and/or simply squee and fangirl/boy away.

Join the chorus sister, we are all wondering the same thing. My guess is that the episodes following the resolution of Dark Moon's scene became a bit too much for an anime intended to be light and funny. The manga can quickly shift between comedy and sexual tension but the anime's audience cannot, so probably that brought it to a halt.

I'm not sure since I haven't read the manga yet. But maybe because the remaining chapters of manga [that aren't made into anime yet] can't completely finish a second season. there's a somewhat high chance for an anime to have a second season that has an ongoing manga. plus, maybe they're still making it, and it's too much time to work on animation I guess.

I hope but I've not even heard rumours.

Though... honestly. I'm starting to get impatient with the manga.

the last episode of the series definitley hints at another season...why end with the "NEXT STAGE IS" when there isn't one? although the anime has ended quite some time ago, there has been plenty of anime that is picked up way after their previous season ended. my guess? the second season won't start until the manga is over.

so far though, the manga is AMAZING and whenever i go back to the anime, i always think: "WOW, THIS SERIES DIDN'T EVEN MAKE A DENT INTO THE STORY." LOL. Anyway, I'm sure a second season will come, it's only a matter of when.
