I also hope that Gainax will continue the anime in Japan despite what I've heard about Gainax and the anime's lack of sales. The ending isn't a conclusion to anything and it pisses me off to no end! I was especially infuriated when I learned that Gainax has an infamous history with animes and that a second season of Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt was highly unlikely. And then I see pictures like this:
Which only serve to make me even more hopeful which will probably end in crushed dreams. THANKS GAINAX, REALLY YOU'RE SO AWESOME.
TOTALLY NOT SARCASM
