Whee for wikis, I guess (tosses salt).
Well, my source is not necessarily the best. Though I guess I could go through Amazon.jp (you would think it is probably still in print). Usually I use animeondvd's list. It's not always accurate for series still going on in Japan, but it's usually solid when it announces a series is over. Though I did find a series that was stretched, Planetes was 4 volumes in Japan apparently and is five here. Which makes me considering how big the volumes are. It must have been a deadly weapon originally.

EDIT: Oops, found it. Amazon.jp

I have just seen all the Anime episodes.
that means the first season: Ai Yori Aoshi
and the second season: Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~
and I have a realy big Question.
the Episode 12 in the Second Season Enishi, is it the last one?
because it realy was a bad ending of a incredible Anime.
do anyone know if there are any more episodes, or maby another season?
there has to be right? because the mange goes way further...or?

Well.. you've asked your question in the manga section rather than the anime section. But no there are no more episodes. Second season ep 12 is the last one. The second season was pretty disappointing in that it was just a collection of random sidestories (though it did cover Tina's preliminary arc).

The manga goes much further (there are 14 volumes published in America now with 3 more to go) and it is starting to resolve many of the plot threads. I'd suggest reading those if you want more.

Yup though Tina's ending is completely different than Enishi's. She went in for the kill when they were on that 'date'.

Actually, (sadly) they can just end like that ... there are many anime out there that just kind of "end" without an ending. The basic purpose of anime is to push product (manga, DVD, figures, CDs, etc) - they actually pay the japanese tv stations to run them (as opposed to the American business model of tv networks paying to run programming and selling ads to cover it). Once the market drops off for the merchandise, there's little incentive to continue unless they think they can revive the sales from producing more anime.
Much as I like AYA ... there just isn't a lot of marketing potential left in it that I can think of.

Concepts that are extremely popular/profitable often get a second chance (Negima, Kanon, yes even Shuffle!) though each example there is getting a revival for their own unique reasons.

I wouldn't say so much that it's a matter of it being popular or profitable as much as it's an example of it still being relevant. Kanon is a special case, but Shuffle has new games to help move. Negima (besides being popular) is also still being serialized. Vexx is right though, chances of the last bit of Ai Yori Aoshi being animated are essentially zero. While there is material left to animate, it's likely not much more than is left of Love Hina or Mahoraba, and no one's in a rush to go back and animate the last of those either. Sorry.

I believe this is the post you're looking for. Obviously spoilers abound.

Maybe we can hope for a follow up OVA for this one, too, but, alas, sigh, I really doubt it. We'll have to envision it in our minds and be creative otherwise.

Like rooboy says.... I'd also like to see a second season wrapping Mahoroba up properly but... probably aint happening... It'd be nice to see Love Hina get a proper ending instead of that "sort of ending nonsense" in the last OVA.

In a way, the AYA Enishi season is kind of rambling directionless like the middle couple of novels in the manga ... but a third season could easily be pulled back on track with minor rewrite to parallel the major secondary track and the final arc of AYA. But since what drives all of this is merchandise (CD, print, DVD, figures) and those are pretty much dust at this point, I'd say be glad the American publisher is finishing the manga series translation.

I'm still waiting for an english version of Mahoraba but may have to be happy with my japanese version (at least its pushing my studies of the language along with Yotsuba& and a few others that aren't available in English).

Well, FUMO for FMP was a rambling mess of fun, and then they had SR, so, maybe there is hope for AYA.

man I hope so.
I really want an ending worthy of the originale Ai Yori Aoshi.
that season was really good Anime.
(Enishi was more like a filler)
if anyone could just Animate the rest of the Manga I would be thrilled
(I'm ordering the Manga soon anyways, but hoping there will be an anouncement of more Ai Yori Aoshi before I get a chance to read it. I like to watch the Anime before reading the Manga. )


*UPDATE* I just ordered the Manga books from Vol.1 to Vol.15 (pre-ordered 15 since it comes out early in February)
I'm so glad I saved up some money for this, cant wait

That's true, but I still think it's a spotty comparison. Full Metal Panic still has new novels coming out, AYA is done in Japan.

Again, I think the chances of it happening are slim (at best), but weirder things have happened. Emma got a second season, and I would have had that pretty far outside the realm of probability as well.

EDIT: By "done" I meant "finished", and I was (I thought) obviously referring to the manga being done.

It was 17 volumes. Tokyopop has released up to 14 in the U.S. (I think 15 is either next month or the one after).

I'll tell you what it lacked... an ending at all!
Enishi was just more like a huge filler. (except some of the Tina episodes)

I just hope they make a 3. season to make a real finish.
though I really doubt it.
and thats to bad
