Yes, they should continue taking advantage of the popular manga, but shouldn't cut them off at the first sign of troubled ratings & the dillema of the anime havin to make it's own ending (after trying useless fillers) for lack of manga to work with. it's not a easy thing to do but their years of knowledge of this should be used to this avantage... or @ least you wouls think so, no? Look at hanakimi it was made in to a drama years after the manga had been completed... but don't me started on drama remakes, sigh.
that's not how it works, tv ratings are completely irrelevant in japan for non long running shows, what matters in the end is DVD/BD sales, if those are bad, the anime won't continue unless the production studio puts very little money into the production at all, tv ratings only matter for long running things like naruto/one piece/fairy tail and things like that, that's why bleach got it's anime cut off due to abysmal tv ratings
To be exact... if it's aired on prime time TV (something like 7AM-8PM), ratings hold power since TV ads are what's pulling the show's weight. However, most anime are shown around the 10PM-3AM time slot (which obviously has sucky view ratings), so the producers have to rely on DVD/BD sales.
...and the new HnG season didn't need to go farther down the timeline compared to the manga in first place, so that shouldn't count as "sucky filler avoidance". ^^;
I was really thinking that it is the manga ratings that causes the rise/downfall of an anime... i.e. the possibilities of a second season and the nill possibility of a completed manga ever turing into an anime regardless of how it rated while it was running.... (probably having stiff competition thus not having the chance at an anime at the time it was running)...........
You get what I mean, I hope.
It would be better if the anime version planned everything out better and discussed things directly with the mangaka so the timelines and such would result in far less fillers and somehow stirke away from AO endings altogether. Businesses could still bid on the popular manga but stall the anime a bit and then plan around the mangaka's timelines with reasonable fillers and a timely ending.
I can take this argument further.... as I don't like how manga are cut almost in their prime just due to a dip in ratings.... you all can probably account for more manga this has happened to than me.... but this is what I mean they need fresh eyes with the aid of seasoned experience to come up with a solution that doesn't disappoint the populace as much as it does right now.
Is it really an impossible dream to want a reasonably popular completed manga you loved to turn into an anime... to want you favavorite reasonably popular manga to continue to reasonably well thought out endings instead of an abrupt ending with loose ends still hanging.... to want your favourite reasonably popular anime to follow the manga conterpart till the end? You tell me.
Anyhow, I have digressed off topic so let me getback on it as well.... I'd like to see Skip Beat's next season and it's sister Tokyo Crazy Paradise as an anime if such things were possible.
