    That will happen as it has sold like 4-5k first week per volume thus far.

    "Sales mean nothing"

    Seconded. Despite being one of THE biggest anime in the last decade, Haruhi has mostly vanished with nay a peep about the later volumes being adapted. Hell, there are several anime that are deliberately made just to promote the source material and nothing more. The endings might as well just say "Fuck you, read the manga/light novel. We don't wanna spare any more peanuts to these animators."

    Er sales are the main form of income for studios. Unless you're an anime that exists solely to sell manga aka Shokugeki no Soma, a show lives or dies on how well it sells.

    Proves what? That the movies can make millions in profit at the box office? is a merchandising behemoth that produces endless $$$ streams for the studio? That companies across the Earth will pay a premium license fee for the rights?

    That's possibly the worst example I've ever seen.

    There isn't enough content to make a third season unless they add massive amounts of fillers.

    Anything made by MADHOUSE most likely won't get a 2nd season unless it's a very episodic show like Ace of Diamonds or Monster.

    Monster was episodic? From what I remember it was 70 episode thriller story.

    overlord is to new but does have a good amount of content it can cover. no game no life not sure on but it seemed popular and has had enough time that a follow up should have been doable by now.

    You have no idea what you're talking about. Overlord has more than enough content for a second season.

    No Game No Life covered the first three volumes of the LNs but used the ending from Vol 6 when they challenged old deus. There's not enough material for another season because of that. They would have to retcon that ending and start at Vol 4.

    The first season of the anime is too different from the books; for example, that shepherdess should not have traveled with Laurence for as long as she did.

    Well that's bullshit. The anime is pretty much a faithful adaption of the Light novels.

    Why that hasn't had a Season 2 remains a mystery. More so, why any show that has sold over 10k per volume on Blu Ray alone hasn't a sequel. That's like money in the bank profit for any studio.

    There are currently enough series to cover their TV broadcasting schedules unless you wish to see more hastily produced series that is below the standard and have haters criticize them everywhere?

    Anime studios barely make much profits after paying their staff members, if anything, they wait for sponsors to show up on their doors. They rarely have the capitals themselves to start a project.

    This is all about meeting demands and not just because they wanted to.

    I can agree on Mahouka, but Hyouka would literally be a few episodes long at best, because there's only 1 volume of the light novel that wasn't portrayed in the anime.

    I would love to see a Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?! Sequel. The light novel is awesome and the first season barely scrapped the surface.

    Mondaiji-tachi would be niche, too.
    But I loved Hyouka a lot - so we are in need of more story, not less anime.

    Yeah, Mondachi would be nice to have another season of as well.
    Perhaps Seitokai Yakuindomo as well?

    The Government screwed it over by handing it to DEEN. That said, it'll be a while before they could do a season 3 anyways since season 2 covers all the way through volume 10 which is the most recent released.

    @13:57 um, anime productions have nothing to do with government whatsoever, it is anime studios that produce them but authors also have no says in this matter. Which studios is awarded the project is mainly dependent on the budgets from sponsors. You can't choose top studio if the budget is low do you?

    How did Log Horizon kill itself? It was faithful to the material. It won't get a season 3 for a while as there's not enough material for it. The author isn't that far ahead yet.

    That thing ended when all the girls went on to the path of Anime. What could they possibly do to wrap it up even more than they already did with a bow on top.

    The girls barely participated in making an anime together like they wanted. Their involvement together essentially just worked out that way.

    The introductory scenario and premise for the series was that they all wanted to work together directly on their own anime series. (In particular the Lucky Gods thing they did in high school.)

    The five of them fall into the direction, design, writer, animation, and voice roles. They could make another series detailing the girls getting closer to their dream of working together on a series. Though since the series has heavy influence from reality, it could be a tough road to travel without making it seem too optimistic (probably why they ended it where and how they did.)

    With the fucking abysmal anime original shit they pulled off, it's no surprise at all. The only good thing to come out of that show was the ED by Maon Kurosaki

    Didn't they butcher the manga's story?

    though it's not like the author did too well either, the ending of the first series was retarded.

    I'd be up for more railgun, as long as its none of that slice of life crap. The Science Side story arcs seem to be so much more interesting than the magic stuff. (or maybe it's just the lack of that annoying biting loli)
