    More, Please!

    There are some anime that only get 1 or 2 seasons, but are good enough that you want to see a second or third season.
    For me, High School of the Dead is one I really want to see more of, but it's not going to happen, sadly.
    I'm also hoping No Game No Life gets a new season soon. That show is fantastic.

    So how about you guys and gals?

    Mondaiji [in English known as "Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?"]. I haven't managed to find the OVAs and the general season they did have was so short and ends so abruptly ugh. ;-; It was so fun until then.

    And more Natsume Yuujinchou never hurts. Even if it had like four seasons.

    There are soooooo many anime that need second (or third, fourth, whatever) seasons. Like Haganai which ended with a plot twist on the second season that left me devastated because my favorite character ended heartbroken. Also Btooom which hinted of a continuation in the last episode but we've seen nothing so far, I don't follow the manga but I heard it's going really slow, so maybe that's why. Last but not least, Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou. It's just very lighthearted, sweet, and overall something you don't watch for the story but still need more of because of the great characters. I'm sure its chances of getting a second season are second to none, but I still want to see it badly.

    I really wanted Fruits Basket to get a second season but I know that will not happen and so, I will just have to hold on to my manga collection. High School of the Dead is also on my list but I'm not holding my breath for a second season.

    Sadly, the fact that shows get cancelled after 1 - 2 seasons, happens everywhere. I have a ton of TV shows that got cancelled prematurely, even if they had a really loyal fan following. I don`t know what this stupid practice is all about, nowadays, but I hope it stops real soon.

    Isn't it more common for an anime to only have one season?

    Seems stuff like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, DBZ etc. are more exceptions than the norm.
    It's gotta be like a 1-in-20 ratio for anime that are given additional (full) seasons.

    Why is that?

    I actually believe animes with only one season to work with make them stronger shows as a result. If the production teams is cognizant of the fact that they only have a limited amount of time to convey their plot, it makes things more cohesive, less drawn out, and most notably reduce the likelihood of the dreaded "filler episodes". I will say that filler episodes can be beneficial if done correctly, but for the most part that doesn't happen. Nevertheless, that's a topic for another time.

    @AsherTheWilliams I believe the reason is obvious: the more objectively popular the show is, the more likely the show will get additional seasons. Sure, there are a TON of one-season animes that can contend with the likes of these multi-season juggernauts, but here's the deal: the studios backing the one-season shows probably didn't want to venture into other forms of media to promote their product. Those that did (DBZ especially) profited off of it and got the green light to generate more content, which has been proven time and again that more content can be a really good thing (One Piece) or a really bad thing (Bleach).



    In the end, it all boils down to how people market their product.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    I agree that Fruits Basket should have continued. I also would have liked to see another season of Great Teacher Onizuka that followed his antics at a new school.

    Certain anime do get more seasons, however these series usually drag on for a few episodes without much happening to advance the storyline. Also, some anime are ruined if the series go on for too long and the show takes a turn that the fans cannot relate to or see happening. I remember that there were so many complaints about Dragonball GT when it first came out.

    Probably not a whole season, but I wouldn't mind seeing more of Outlaw Star (of course!) or Black Lagoon in OVA format- maybe a half dozen episodes with no filler. For Black Lagoon, I guess the anime follows the manga pretty closely, so that would more or less leave an OVA based on the Wired Red Wild Card arc.

    I'm guessing that I'm in a minority here, but I wouldn't mind a few more episodes of Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt- although they'd have to go with a different title given what happened in the last 30 seconds or so of Episode 13. Not sure a whole second season would be necessary, but they could wrap things up with a 3 or 4 episode OVA (not that Gainax has much interest in wrapping things up).

    I really wanted to not like the series and pretty much did so up until Episode 6 with the introduction of the haughty and authoritarian Daemon Sisters- the sinister counterparts to the title characters. Despite being agents of Hell, they counterintuitively thrive on order and rules ( or r-r-r-r-r-rurus!!, if you will) and sometimes show more concern for the humans around them then the title characters, which I thought was pretty complex for an anime that prided itself on its toilet humor and (according to their creators) modeled itself after South Park and Drawn Together.

    There was some official artwork for a proposed Season Two that indicated Scanty and Kneesocks Daemon were (at least temporarily) acting on behalf of Heaven, but Studio Gainax probably blew the lion's share of their budget on that one transformation sequence from Episode 6 that was never shown again.

    I wish that they would come out with season three of Is This a Zombie?, but it's been three three years since season two been out and my hopes are dwindling as time passes on. The reason I heard why there is no second season of P&S is that the creative team went on to other things and the new laws in Japan put a monkey wrench to it because the main characters are underaged for subject matter of the show. I don't know if that is true or not just telling you what I read on the net.

    As for Dragonball GT, Akira Toriyama had nothing to do with that series other than he gave Toei Animation the OK to continue using his characters. The manga series ended with the Majin Boo arc.

    IMO most anime should only last one to two seasons at most. Anything more than that most people lose interest after awhile. Bleach is a good axample of being on for too long. After 350+ episodes it got cancelled and yet the manga still goes on.
    We are all insane, we just act normal for the sake of others.
