I know this may seem like a "request for another season" thread but I assure you, it's not. I'm simply curious is all. Why is it that a fair amount of anime end with "To be Continued" or a massive cliffhanger and then leave it at that? It seems like if the creators placed those there because they had plans for another season or sequel series, why not make it? I understand that if it doesn't sell well in Japan, that can be a big factor but it doesn't necessarily mean that the entire anime is a bust.
