What are some of the anime series that have finished/were cancelled that you miss the most? Why?

I'd have to say the anime I miss the most would be Yugioh GX. That was ~the bomb~ back when I was a kid.

Fairy Tail I'm hoping it is just a long hiatus, rather than a total cancellation, but that anime was amazing. It was a great mix of humour and fighting and emotional bits .

Also bleach, ending it when there was one final arc to animate was a stupid decision. I expect it will be back, at some point.

I really wish there was more Soul Eater. From what I know the manga is still going so there's more to the story. However, I haven't read it so maybe it's different than the show or wouldn't work out as an anime.

I could always use more Sword Art Online. That was a really good anime as well, but they haven't said anything about a second season yet. D:

I'd love to see Yu Yu Hakusho extended. Yusuke's final fight was awesome.

The one that jumps to mind is Kokoro Connect since that scandal has caused to finish long before the visual novels.

Of course I miss all of the other good one's too mind you.

Can't say I agree with any of that but a second season was confirmed ages ago.

Preach it!

I want to see more Soul Eater because I binge watched that and I was so disappointed when it was over. Far too much went unclarified, I think, and there's potential for far more development in all the characters.

Soul Eater, without a doubt. The anime was awesome, but ended ages ago. And now the Manga is over too. And Bleach is on hiatus in both the anime and manga. (I refuse to accept that they won't animate the final arc)

This is the biggest reason why I've switched from watching dubs to subs. I can think of a few dubbed anime which ended prematurely. And then when I have to transition to the sub, even though I might not have minded the dub VAs, it's just to strange.

Yugioh GX, mentioned in the OP, along with a majority of anime I watched as a child on Toonami such as Zatch Bell, Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, are some reasons why.

As great as it would be to see new episodes of Cowboy Bebop, I'm very glad that it ended when it did and wasn't drawn out for any longer. Indeed, many of the anime that I like either ended at the right time or already past their prime. Because of that, I don't really miss any of them, as I can always just watch my favourite episodes again knowing that the quality is just as good as I remember it. As much as things going on forever sounds nice in principle, it will just turn into a Simpsons scenario in which what you once loved becoming a shell of its former self.

I would love for D Gray Man and Hitman Reborn! to continue and remake Ao no Exorcist without the original anime content.

I would be onboard for more Deadman Wonderland as long as they don't leave out anything else "

One anime that I really miss is MegaMan. MegaMan NT Warrior, to be exact. It was a great series, and when I was younger, I used to watch it every day on Kids' WB as soon as I got home after school. It sucks that they had to end it, though, because if they kept it alive, it probably would've been able to compete head-to-head with anime like Pokémon and Beyblade. I also liked their Star Force series, but in my opinion, it just wasn't as good as NT Warrior. D:

Two anime that aired here years ago immediately come to mind.

The first, Shaman King, aired here around 2005/6/7 (I think it was before the Fox Kids channel was replaced by Jetix, I could be wrong though). I hate to sound like I'm clouded by nostalgia, but SK was better written (in general, I don't really know about the dub's reception, and I've read the manga) than the anime they're airing now.
The second, Medabots, aired around 2007/8. I don't remember much, but I think it stopped shortly after the World Tournament arc? Looking back on it, both the writing and humour was decent, same goes for the dub.

On one hand, there are some that should be left be to preserve it's sanctity and hallowed status, (See Cowboy Bebop) and there are some that I think could be brought back and still be good if written correctly. I'd love to see more Big-O, Gurren Laggan, Code Geass, FMA, etc, but since they all had good endings, part of me wants to leave them be.

I loved Azumanga Daioh, but both the manga and anime have long since finished. I'd love to see more of their antics, though. ^-^

Also, there's Ghost Hunt. Apparently, only the first half of the manga ever became an anime, at least to my understanding. A second season would be very welcome. At least tie up loose ends!

I should really read that, such a fun anime. With an amazing OST I must add.

Bleach needs to come back :I

Highschool of the dead needs a second season to! D: the manga went on hiatus. Again. >__>

I also wouldn't mind a soul eater reboot of the anime that follows the manga more. Soul eater manga ended and it was EPIC.

Same thing could be said about Deadman Wonderland.

Hmmmmm..... Oh ya, Beelzebub! Argh, anime ended because it wasn't that popular D: it is freaking epic xD so funny... I want the anime back Q_Q

Good thing manga still going though.

I honestly would at least 1 more Cowboy Bebop OVA or Movie. I feel that there are several stories left to be told in that Universe, I would of liked to have met a grown up Ed.

I also wouldn't mind another Trigun Movie like Badlands Rumble either!

The only anime that I would pay to see start up again would be Rurouni Kenshin (AKA Samurai X.) It was the anime of my childhood, and one that I have re-watched countless times.

I kinda miss Sailor Moon when I thought it was the best thing in the world. They're giving us a new series though, so maybe I'll get to relive that feeling though probably not.

I agree with anyone that says Soul Eater cause I really want to see new episodes of it. The manga has 25 volumes so they could well another make season or two of it.

I am surprised no one mentioned Berserk. Sure, they're making movies but a series would do it more justice imo. Manga is amazing. And they have tons of content that can be animated too. Probably never happening though.

D.Gray-man is probably first on my list of Anime I wish to continue. They have some material to animate (about 8 volumes), but now that the manga is also on hiatus it might take a while before they start things again. I just about loved everything about it. : < Even some of the fillers.

Other series include Saiunkoku Monogatari. The light novels were completed a while ago, but the way the anime handled some of the characters' backstory makes it hard to animate the novels following the stop of the anime, which are heavily focussing on Kouyu's backstory.

Shounen Onmyouji is another one of those light-novel based anime which I would love to see more off. Although the ending is nice, it's far from satisfying and a big cliffhanger at that. Gurrrreeeennn

Karneval, Kamisama Hajimema****a, Pandora Hearts (restart and do it well this time, the original anime ending was bad), Rurouni Kenshin (I want to see the Enishi arc animated... properly animated. Seishouhen wasn't bad, but the manga is still better).

Yeah, I have some series here and there that I miss watching.
On a side note, I know the finale of the second season aired just two months ago, but I'm one of those fans anxiously awaiting Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 3000%. |D At least there will be a special-themed OVA in December.
