The Animes that are Continuing in Manga but stop at certain Season never got to continue!!!

The Most Anime I wanted to see Continue is Baki the Grappler Season 3!!

Next one is Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple Season 3

Black Lagoon Season 3, I remembered at the ending of Season 2, it said Continue.. Yet no Season 3 Announce after all those years! -_-;

I'm pretty sure there more I wanted to see out there. What make the company stop continuing the Anime series/season? Is it lack of not making enough money due to Piracy? Or decided to move on to different Anime that they hope will get more customer to pay them? -scatches head-

Pandora Hearts, Skip Beat! and 07-Ghost are the biggest ones on the list for me. (and Saint Seiya: Lost Canvas although they meant that as a side-story only...but it's better than the others that are the main lines!)

I really would love a season 2 of Another and Brynhildr in the Darkness even though they are both technically finished. Brynhildr was actually a rushed anime sadly. It has a very good storyline to it. The manga is the only way to continue it.

I want to see Yona continue so we can get the rest of that story. I felt the series started out weak but was really coming into it's own more and more as the series progressed.

I'd also love to see a new season of Shirobako. Maybe set it a few years down the road from where season 2 ended.

Oh, and Aoi Hana. Yeah would be nice to actually see the continuation of that story.

Chihayafuru. I think that's the series I wish to see a continuation of the most at the moment.

I'm not sure why they don't continue it. I think i've heard others say that they basically just made the anime to advertise its source material, and thus aren't all that interested in advancing it for its own sake. Or something like that ~ just paraphrasing a rumor I vaguely remember.

Show could really use another season though. I would like some sort of definitive ending.

The four that I can think of off the top of my head are Chihayafuru, Spice and Wolf, Silver Spoon, and Natsume Yuujinchou. I don't read the manga for any of these shows, but I know that the manga to these shows have more material for the shows to continue.

More often than not, it is because the series didn't sell well enough. For "late night" anime (which is most of the anime we see on CR), BD/DVD sales are the primary driving factor. Take a look at this page for a summary of the average per video volume sales of various anime in Japan.

While the "break even" point can vary a bit due to production costs, promotional costs, etc., the general rule of thumb is that sales need to average around 3,000 for series not to lose money. The higher a series is above that point, the more interest there will likely be in creating a sequel.

If you look at that list, you may be surprised how many series don't make that threshold or barely exceed it. Even if a series averages sales of 4,000 - 5,000, a production committee would take into account that sequels normally don't sell as well as the original.

Other factors can compensate for low sales, such as if the anime is based on a light novel or manga and the anime greatly boosts the sales of that media, or if the anime proves very popular for licensing of merchandise.


Unfortunately, while high sales indicate the probability of a sequel, they don't guarantee it. There can be a number of stumbling blocks.

If the anime is based on other media, such as manga or a light novel, lack of sufficient material to continue can put the brakes any sequel. Attack on Titan had astounding sales averaging 52,052 per video volume, but there simply wasn't enough material left in the original manga for another series (although there should be by later this year).

You can also have situations where everything is good on the money side, but the author of the original material didn't like how his creation was presented in the anime.


Of course, there are always mysteries. Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere averaged sales of over 20K per video volume for both series and apparently isn't lacking in original material (18 volumes of the light novel exist), but in September it will be 3 years since the second series ended.
