On the other hand they used to be anime that really wasn't that good and had a lot of episodes.

Even on anime the industry of "The one who has more money" will always win, classic anime studios like Gainax, Clamp, Toei and some others , counts with a lot of capital, mostly any anime you see on the "Shounen Jump" is an automatic long serie, like Naruto, bleach, one piece and some others.

And the culture is a heavy weight, on japan the anime normally is aired once, and that's it, if you see it good, if you don't, well online or dvd only, they rarely rarely re-air an anime,

Well, it usually depends on the number of sales, popularity, and other stuff that influences a series' success. On a recent ANN, there was an article that described the key in Anime Economy where they talked about how an anime is made and the cost and time it takes to actually generate revenue. If you think about it, a lot of anime that never got a 2nd season or dropped is because the lack of success and popularity.

I believe the article is this one: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/feature/2012-03-05 (part 2 and 3 also linked in the article)

And then there are issues regarding copyrights, licenses, contracts, etc etc. A recent example of this is Infinite Stratos light novels.

But, there are definitely some decent animes out there that should not end early imo. There was recent online poll that fans voted to see which anime would like to see a sequel of. Some titles that were thrown out included Angel Beats, Darker than Black, Spice and Wolf, etc. I'm sure a lot of fans did not want any of those series to end early. Hell, I didn't want to either but in the end, that's just life.

Indeed.

At least they ended well and not in a series of unfunny/uninteresting cycles of fillers and ridiculous plots.

No one seems to mention the possibility that the creators intended it to only be that long.

Something like [C] - Control ended exactly where the writer wanted it to end.

Ye, that's also a possibly. [C] was quite an unique anime and I didn't see where it was going to go after that tbh. Sometimes, the writer may just have more ideas for his/her other works so they decide to end a work that they didn't feel like continuing.

Another good example is Jyu Oh Sei, which was clearly meant to convey a particular story in 13 episodes. Another example is Tenchi Muyo, for which the OVA was awesome, but the TV anime based on it (marketed as "Tenchi Universe" in the United States) dragged terribly. I watched it to the end... but only because I wanted to see what happened at the end.

Personally, I strongly prefer limited-run OVAs to TV anime. Yeah, it's sad when it ends, but then there are other limited-run anime to watch, afterward.

Hmm, another title from Noitamina. Anohana that debuted last year also ended @ 11 episodes (although there will be a manga adaptation). The current ongoing Black Rock Shooter also from Noitamina. I'm seeing a pattern here.

AnoHana couldn't possibly have more than 11 episodes because that would be dragging the story.
And about BlackRock Shooter. What did you expect?
They're going to make a 1 hour long OVA into a series.
8 episodes is being generous imo.

Ye, I had high expectations from Black Rock Shooter but turned out to be something that didn't meet my expectations. In fact, it didn't make it into my top 5 or even 10 this season so far or let alone will be this year.

I miss Anohana though. Considering rewatching atm

That is why a plan, budget, and chose an anime that has a decent storyline. This should be sucessful with a stragery. Not a guarntee but a close enough. They seem so short or come to the ending so quickly after you have determined whom the main characters are. I agree they are ending to soon.

True dat. It actually makes me kinda sad that trash is slowly replacing creativity.
