Of course, there are exceptions to the case.
There are exception to this. Some novels that has high sales are being animated because the publisher wants it to be animated to boost its sale further. Take it as marketing strategy for the book to be known more.

BUT

For most of the time. The dvd/bd sales are good indicator.

If the sales are more than 5000 usually it gets 2nd season. That's from the past. I'm not sure on what to look at now because some that sold bad are still having a continuation but a good sales is never a bad thing.

you check the sales of the Manga/LN to see if there is a noticeable bump in sales.

speculation - who is the Queen of Thousand Eyes?

With the words Thousand Eyes, I think of Argus.

So Queen of Thousand Eyes is Hera?

I always thought their leader is the twin goddesses in their banner. They're the one that defeated Shiroyasha, Alpha and Omega.

Can anyone explain to me the myths behind Alpha and Omega? I assume that there's some history behind it and I know that they're Greek letters, but I can't find anything else.

Alpha to omega basically translated as A to Z in english or in christian term, it's mean from the beginning to the end, and the only existence which can call itself the beginning and the end is god, as in the old testament.

That's all? That seems pretty short for goddesses.

well the fact that err... they? are referred to as the Alpha and Omega... I guess "it" would be the proper choice for me...
well it seems that Shiroyasha was beaten by the God of the christian bible/ jewish torah... ohh god (no puns intended)...

Hmm...I see. I guess using the term God would have brought up some legal issues.

^ Say that to Atlus and High School DxD. But especially to Atlus and especially to SMT2. Besides, most of the time they do tend to use the God of the Old Testament, which can be quite... brutal in His ways sometimes, admittedly.

Because they are just side stories, they are just distractions from the main plot. Short Story, or more exactly, Omakes should just be short and just be bonus. After all, what we, I mean, I wanted was the story, not these bonus. Not to mention, it totally killed the pacing. To compare, it would be like cutting off in the middle of a movie which had just reached the climax, only to show some stupid and unrelated scenes to the plot.

Besides, bonus are bonus. They are additions to the main thing. Also, these short stories tend to have a rather bad comedies compared to the comedy in the main things, in addition to not being 'short' at all when it completely made up an entire volume. An entire volume which contributes nothing to the plot. That's what's so bad about short story volumes for me.

Or you can considering those short stories as a way to developp the universe instead of "distractions".
