Top 10 Anime that Most Need a Sequel

While many anime series have come and gone over the years, some have left a lasting impact that lingers long after the final episode has aired.

For fans of these beloved series, there is often a burning desire to see more of their favorite characters and stories. And that's where the idea of a sequel comes in. Whether it's a continuation of the main story, a spin-off featuring supporting characters, or a prequel that explores the history of the world, a sequel can offer a chance to revisit a beloved universe and see it in a whole new light.

But not all anime series receive the sequel treatment they deserve. Despite having passionate fan bases and critical acclaim, some anime have yet to receive the follow-up seasons that fans crave. Whether it's due to lack of funding, creative differences, or other factors, these series have left fans hanging and hoping for more.
The Top Ten
1 Princess Tutu Princess Tutu is a Japanese magical girl anime series created by Ikuko Itoh in 2002 for animation studio Hal Film Maker. Inspired by ballet and fairy tales, particularly The Ugly Duckling and Swan Lake, the story follows a duck who is transformed into the mythical ballerina Princess Tutu in order to... read more

Most of us were very disappointed about the ending. (There are some spoilers in this comment.) Ahiru should have gotten to stay in her human form as a reward for everything she has done. She collected and gave all the heart shards to Mytho and saved the whole city as well.

I know that Ahiru is originally a duck, but Ahiru and Fakir can't even become a couple in that state. It's just too unfair. I have heard that Ikuko Itoh was planning on continuing the story. She had said that it's going to be about Fakir and Ahiru. But it has been more than 10 years now.

What we want is another season or an OVA where Ahiru stays as a human and ends up with Fakir.

2 Skip Beat!

The manga was pretty good. Why couldn't they add that on?

3 Fruits Basket After the accident in which she lost her mother, 16-year-old Tooru moves in with her grandfather, but due to his home being renovated, is unable to continue living with him. Claiming she will find someone to stay with but also fearing the criticism of her family and not wanting to burden any of her... read more
4 Yona of the Dawn Yona of the Dawn is a Japanese manga series by Mizuho Kusanagi, serialized in Hakusensha's shōjo manga magazine Hana to Yume from August 2009. It has been collected in twenty tankōbon volumes... read more

The manga is the best and the anime is amazing! Great character development in the beginning. The manga is funny. It totally needs a sequel.

5 Claymore Claymore is a dark fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Norihiro Yagi. The series initially premiered in the now defunct Monthly Shōnen Jump in the May 2001 issue, but was moved to one of their sister magazines as the content was deemed too adult for Shōnen Jump’s target demographic.

Since the manga is finished, it would be much easier to make an anime adaptation on its full source material.

6 Hyouka Airing in 2012, this anime series is adapted from a mystery novel by Honobu Yonezawa. The narrative focuses on a high school boy who joins a literature club and ends up solving various mysteries. The show is praised for its subtle storytelling and detailed animation.

I mean, who doesn't want romance between the leads?! I am totally on board!

7 Bleach Bleach is a Japanese anime series based on Tite Kubo's manga of the same name. Bleach adapts the first 54 volumes of Tite Kubo's manga series of the same name. In addition, 4 anime-original arcs were broadcast in-between and during the adaptations of original arcs of the manga... read more

Seriously, there's a massive world to see, and the anime only shows 2 or 3 out of the, what, 16 countries? In only a 12-episode anime, the only sequel we get in years is a movie. There better be another season, and a long one.

Why stop with a cliffhanger? They should have made the first season go on at least a little longer until a proper conclusion for a proper transition to a sequel. Oh well. At least there's still the upcoming movie.

I think it will happen sooner or later.

9 The Story of Saiunkoku
10 La Corda d'Oro La Corda d'Oro is a role-playing game series targeted at a female audience under the Neoromance series from Koei.

I know that there is a sequel called "Blue Sky," which was not as successful as the first season. They should have made a continuation with the same characters from the first season.

The Contenders
11 The Devil is a Part-Timer The Devil Is a Part-Timer is a Japanese light novel series written by Satoshi Wagahara, with illustrations by Oniku.
12 Future Diary Future Diary is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Sakae Esuno. The plot surrounds a battle royale in which each combatant has a diary with entries from the future. The manga was serialized in the Kadokawa Shoten's Shōnen Ace between January 2006 and December 2010.

I want Future Diary to get a sequel!

13 Noragami Noragami (ノラガミ, lit. "Stray God") is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Adachitoka. It began serialization in Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Magazine in December 2010.

14 Highschool of the Dead Highschool of the Dead, known in Japan as Apocalyptic Academy: Highschool of the Dead, is a Japanese manga series written by Daisuke Satō and illustrated by Shōji Satō.

No big hopes, but still waiting for season 2.

It would be High School of the Dead: The Second Outbreak. I really hate Koichi Shido because he is a jerk to Takashi Komuro, and I want him to be killed by zombies as a punishment.

15 Hunter X Hunter 2011
16 Another Another is an anime based upon the Novel and Manga of the same name by Yukito Ayatsuji. There also exists a live action movie based on the novel.

And no, ViVid Strike! doesn't count as a sequel or second season as it was a spin-off of the manga that this series was based on.
