Sadly it was not the worst. Say I Love You/Sukitte Ii Na Yo has never ranked for even a single volume so it was the worst which again I can't believe.

BTOOOM! and Sukitte Ii Na Yo manga both continue however so we can still find out how it ends.

I still loved both anime and am buying both because I enjoy them. I don't care what anyone else buys...

Now, manga sales Sukitte actually sells really well, almost 400000 per volume which is like Chihayafuru so you never know, it could still get a second season just based upon that. BTOOOM! is only selling around 90000 per volume so unfortunately it didn't get as much of a manga increase as I'd hoped which is quite sad as I like it very much. Ah well, as I said, I will continue to buy their monthly magazines to know what happens and the tankobons when they come out too, to support it.

**,326 - BTOOOM! (Fall, 6 vols) DVD (0%) / 326 BD (100%)


I saw that too. A lot of people don't know how badly this show sold.

I know that the US audience got some anime to go further. Like the Trigun movie for example. But I have doubts that the fandom here would be able to get another season of this.

I can see how btooom would be popular for westerners, but sadly we aren't the main costumers.

There is indeed a manga but it is still ongoing.

Manga spoiler/anti-spoiler

But the manga and show were made by Japanese people and for Japanese people. Just wasn't as successful as they'd hoped.

Unfortunately knowing MadHouse Studios there wont be any second season of the awesomness of BTOOOM!. Like how there is no second season of Deadman Wonderland or High School OF The Dead. The only show they ever finished was Death Note.
They should change their name to TrollHouse studios. Ahh well, lets pray for the best

Huh...well I wouldnt know since I cant stand that show personally but look at how many years later after the first season. Three years after the first season was originally aired. Nobody should be forced to wait that long

I understand it didn't sell well in Japan...and I'm really surprised because this was the 2nd best anime on my que with Shingeki (Attack on Titan) being #1 and SOA at #3.

My thing is:
How in the hell are they not going to do a season two when there are soooo many open ended things going on?

That's business. If their primary goal was "art" or commitment to a few fans and they were willing to lose money or just not make very much money, then they'd finish out the story to a real conclusion.

However, when the main reason for producing the anime is profit and return on investment, well from that perspective, it does not make sense to use your resources to create a product that won't sell or won't have a significant enough impact on promoting sales of related products, like the manga. Even if it means leaving an "open" ending.
