Basically a followup of Hardcore Otakus’ top 20 anime that need a sequel. So as the title implies, here’s my own list of 16 anime that IMO need a sequel. For those who plan on saying “go read the manga”, don’t waste my time.
But first some honorable mentions:
Kanamemo: The reason why this didn’t make my list is because I’ve continued reading the manga and I can honestly say it doesn’t get any better. It’s cute, but not enough to make a profit if it were to be animated.
Chu-Bra: I have a bad feeling I know how the anime would end were the conclusion to be animated and quite honestly, seeing it would piss me off beyond belief.
Murder Princess: As much as I want a sequel for this one, unfortunately the ending makes it very hard to think up a way for the anime to continue…unless the manga had the exact same plot and it found a way to continue the story after the events of episode 6.
Now without further ado, the list:
#16: NANA: The reason why this one is the lowest is due to the anime having a mostly satisfying conclusion. Still, I am a little curious about what happened to one of the Nanas in the end.
#15: Groove Adventure Rave: I honestly enjoyed this show’s plot. It wasn’t original but they way it was told amused me. The manga’s finished so I don’t think this anime was a flop. If it was, I honestly don’t get why.
#13: Mahoraba; Heartful Days: Words cannot express how much I liked this show. It is an undeniably enjoyable SoL show with no hateful characters whatsoever. Best of all, the male lead is competent and likable. Yes, I know, shocking. But I guess the main reason is that I want to see Erica Vermillion again. She’s so cute.
#12: Yumekui Merry: I know the show’s season finale was as corny as an episode of Guilty Crown, but I wouldn’t mind seeing a continuation of this one. I mean so many questions were left unanswered and aside from the way the show ended, I legitimately want to see what happens next.
#10: Blue Drop: Yes, I know the anime was incredibly slow and sadly flopped, but I’ve seen some of the other Blue Drop Manga and they would make great stories in animated form. Don’t let one failure get you down. Learn from your mistake and try to speed things up next time. That simple.
#9: Another tie between Aoi Hana and Sasameki Koto: It’s a shame both flopped but maybe it’s because the manga was hardly at the middle point when these shows aired. Now that both have more than 4 volumes, I’d say it’s okay to try again.
#6: Kannazuki no Miko Dream OVA: Premise is quite simple. Himeko and Chikane are both sealed in the Moon Shrine till their next incarnation…you know where I’m going with this.
#5: Maria-sama ga Miteru: Seriously, the 4th season’s finale though conclusive, still left me wanting an epilogue. Personally I think the show should end after Sachiko, Rei and Shimako graduate and no later than that…unless they have a special epilogue where Yumi and Sachiko FINALLY KISS!
