I'm really surprised that they haven't done a Shonen Jump series yet. Since those always end up being pretty popular. Admittedly there is one that will be getting an anime soon, and I like it a lot, so I'm biased, but I would like to see them do it!

Also, I think I mentioned before, but I think they should do an adaption of Vagabond. I haven't read the manga, but I got the first VizBig edition today, and I've heard nothing but good about it. Plus its won a lot of awards, and is nearing the end of its run. So I think an anime adaption would be rather fitting now. It would probably be 80-100 episodes though, so they might want to skip out on it. But they are doing 3 adaptions next year, so who knows?

I still want to see them do a Magical Girl show, since I've apparently kindled an interest in the genre for some reason.

Production I.G has a entirely different creative agenda than Bones. If you notice, I.G doesn't really produce anime that doesn't sell. They tend to adapt works that already have a loyal following, and they do so with the expectation of commercial success. Of course, I.G is incredibly good at picking projects that click with the mass and you don't see a huge audience divide, which also means they are on average more mainstream and doesn't take a whole lot of commercial risk. On the other hand, Bones is a bit more whimsical and tends to make things that reflect Bones style rather than capitalizing on already popular franchise. Case in recent years, all of Bones adaptions have been quite anonymous. Also, Bones does have a genre slant (Sci-fi, fantasy, action), while I.G doesn't really, they just go for w.e is popular.

I'm actually surprised Bones hasn't thought of picking up something more mainstream, it would certainly bring in more cash. They sure have enough credential to convince the publishers.

BONES could easily do sports. Production I.G headed the Haikyuu!! animated project, which is an enormous success (and one of the very few sports shows I actually really love) so it all depends on originality and how they animate it.
Haikyuu's animation is a wonder to look at, and BONES could probably easily make something on its level if they're given a high-enough budget. Basically if Production I.G, hardly a company that animates sports shows, can do it, so can BONES pff.

I think its actually doing pretty well with airing numbers. It's just the sales are not very good in Japan at all.

So I highly doubt a movie will be made. Although it would have been awesome...

I have to wonder is there really a genre of show that BONES hasn't done yet? I mean they have action, fantasy, mecha, reverse harem, Shonen Ai, yuri (if you can't Kurau, which I don't), history, western (Cowboy Bebop movie), psychological, science fiction, disaster, tournament, post-apocalyptic, comedy, tragedy, drama, mystery, slice of life, and moe.

The only two that I can think of that they haven't touched is sports, and magical girl.

I would actually like to see them do a magical girl show, considering that's the "in thing" now after Madoka. I mean when "psychological mecha" was at its peak due to Evangelion, they made RahXephon. Which I actually find to be better. Maybe they could come up with an interesting magical girl show.

Sports would be a little mundane, since I'm not really a fan of sports. But I think they could probably come up with an interesting take on it.

That's one of the things I love about BONES, they don't stick to one genre. They have an incredibly diverse body of work, which I think is wonderful. They don't typecast themselves.

Id love a space dandy movie but i doubt the series is a big enough success especially seeing how toonami moved it to 12:30

The President of BONES went to Germany a few days ago, and held a panel about the studio. He went in depth on some of their series, and then announced that for 2015 the studio is making 3 adaptions, and 1 new original work. Also he said they would like to make a Space Dandy movie provided the series is a success.

So while a lot of their shows haven't been selling well lately, they don't seem too deterred from making new series!

I feel like the beginning was pretty great, the villain of the week part was kind of slow, but its beginning to look up now that all of the heroes and villains have been established. So I expect good things from here on out. Will it be enough for me to like the series more? Possibly, but I don't expect to give the series a 9 or anything. It feels kind of 7ish right now for me. Might go, might go down depending on how they handle the rest.

its gotten pretty bad of recent yeah. It felt like they were building up to something in the start but in reality the plot never takes off and it becomes a really tedious villain of the weak format, like star driver did that too, but star driver was alot more fun to watch cause the absurdity of it all as well as the characters genuinely being likable helped carry it, CE has a really bland cast and the absurdity comes off more as lazy than fun.
