Feeling frustrated on anime, sometimes.

I am an anime and manga fan. I love anime that I watch it online from day to night on my nights off from work. As you know many of my favorite anime came to an end among them; Strike the Blood, YuruYuri, Chunibyou, Imocho, Tokyo Ravens, Maken-ki and others that escape my mind. Recently, I watched Haganai and Haganai Next and frankly the ending of the series left an open door for another season.

The problem that I have with anime is the pace of how a series to get to TV or streaming service. If an anime "deserves" to have another season, we don't know for months or even years after the last episode of the anime is broadcast. I wonder what is the point to wait that long for an anime series to get another season if the timing to have another season takes too long.

I really wish for Japanese animators get the next season of a series ready within 6 months after the end of the same series is over. I am very frustrated on how long I have to wait whether my favorite anime series gets renewed for another season or not.

I know that other factors affect whether a continuation of the series gets the go ahead or not. But really, as a fan I have my frustration(s) to wait a couple of years on whether my favorite anime gets renewed or not.

Yeah I hear you.

The "ending" that bugs the shit out of me is something I call the "life goes on" ending. You know, the one where it seems like it could be any episode mid-season, and the show just drops off. Hate it so much actually that I rarely watch animes that have fewer than 24 episodes.

Many shows deserve more than the 12ish that they get, and only once or twice have I seen a properly paced anime that was wrapped up and done effectively in that amount of time.

At this point I've pretty much desensitized myself to bad anime series endings. Maybe going into each series expecting the worst (bad ending or no ending with no hope of another season) is just the way to go these days

With Haganai they animated it pretty close to the source material, the novels. When they ended Haganai Next, they had literally animated all of the source material that was out at the time. So honestly, they had 2 choices, give you a crappy season 3, or wait until there is enough material for a good season 3.

I completely agree. I hate non endings.
