I have watched anime for a rather long time now and have experienced this horrid feeling more than once (it's almost a habit of anime to never end properly and it really bugs me!) I will be watching loving the show, characters and development but then suddenly there is no more to watch. It doesn't conclude anything, it doesn't round anything, you don't even get that last touching scene with all the characters, and it just makes me feel a little empty inside

Examples of shows which have done this:

spice and wolf, pet girl of sakura hall, trinity 7, when supernatural battles become commonplace...etc etc

How do you deal with this feeling after finishing an unfinished anime? Also what anime do you wish had better endings or even more seasons. Personally i would kill for more seasons of Spice and wolf because i want closure on it!

I wish my favorite anime could just go on forever!

I go on google and see if another season exists, if not I just find a new anime to watch. Anime I wish had better endings or more seasons? I would go with Elfen Lied, Angel Beats, Heaven's Lost Property and most harems. Most harems leave you off with the protagonist not choosing and it's a bit boring.

I suppose you could always read the source material, Light Novels and Manga, which have continued the stories you enjoyed, although some of them are probably not translated. Other then that enjoy more shows until the ones you liked hopefully return.

Personally I want more of the following:
Accel World
No game No Life
The Problem Children are coming from another world aren't they?
Love, Chuynibo, and other delusions(It ended fine, I just really like the series)
Madoka Magica(we need a sequel to the movie)
Black Bullet
Maoyu

yeah spice and wolf is probably the first that i will actually buy the light novels for as i love it. I would also love more No game No life! It's just a pain that anime, light novels, manga and game sims have such strong connections with each other as i'm not a big reader so i'm afraid i might not enjoy the light novels nearly as much as the anime.

I watch some other anime and will wait for the unfinished anime to come out in 1,2,3,4+ years.

I'd guess that would be a personnel preference. Honestly I'm ok with Light novels and Manga as I find them pretty easy and quick to read, but that's just me.

I can't really compare them but I'd recommend at least giving it a try and seeing how it goes.

For a lot (not all ) anime I go and read the manga / LN

Again some are harder to find those in comic books and Original works!

If you like the anime that much and want a guranatee of what happens that is the way to go. Between sales of DVD's ,, reaction to the anime etc will determine whether it continues . Even successful animes arent finishing. Take A Certain Magical Index / Railgun there are important arcs to finish!. But nothing is happening. There is a lot of chapthers!

My list is way too large to mention!

Hopefully you have watched any of the high end greats out there in the past, if not, I suppose you can just watch whatever your favorite anime is.

On the off chance, that It's a extremely unique anime that was left incomplete, you're pretty much screwed. All you can do, is read the source material(if you're lucky, there should atleast be a fan translation out there somewhere).

In come cases even the source material is left incomplete or it hasn't been translated sigh.

I really hope Kingdom gets a season 3, 4, 5, 6 and whatever is needed to complete it, because this is definitely a anime that can't be replaced.

Depends, sometimes read the manga to get the conclusion/continuation or look online to see how it ends, if the manga/novel isn't translated or available.

When that is the end with no more material, and likely not to be anymore, i then find another show to watch.

The third is something i have started doing for shi-ki, making fan fiction based on how the story progressed & how i think the characters should be by the end. I.E. felt shi-ki was too open ended on all the characters.
Open ended is fine but too much unexplained leaves you feeling that the story didn't get the right ending.

I feel like there's a thread that is dangerously similar to this one.

I only know because I've posted in that one, pulled up this one thinking it was the same one! T~T

You keep filling the void with more and more anime until the next thing you know you're soliciting your "services" to strangers in an alley in exchange for single episodes.

Just read the manga/LN's. If it's a cliffhanger harem then you can always find a decent hentai to release all of your pent up *cough* frustration.
