According to the statement of accounts of IG Port (the parent company of Production I.G and XEBEC), a sequel to a "big hit" TV series will be produced by 2013.

IG Port announced a significant amount of loss in the second quarter of 2010. Sengoku BASARA, Higashi no Eden and To LOVE-Ru have contributed to the sales but they couldn't compensate for the bad loans of Uchuu Senkan Yamato: Fukkatsu-hen and the failure of Hottarake no Shima ~Haruka to Mahou no Kagami~. Taking responsibility of the huge loss, one of the executive directors of IG Port resigned the post and the personnel expenses will be cut down by the reduction of the bonus and the salary-cut of the administrators. IG Port expects 15% increase in the sales by the production of the "big hit" series in 2Q 2013.

Yeah, the biggest hit that IG Port has ever produced is Ghost in the Shell, it could just turn out to be that.

If I remember well, the company had decided to turn to movies to try new marketing strategies. How could they not see the losses coming with titles like Hottarake no Shima, though...

Yeah, I would guess that it is Ghost in the Shell also.

I don't really care since I never really liked Ghost in the Shell, I just found it really boring and too dramatic.

There's the danger erm..i mean possibility of it being a new Tsubasa Chronicles season? And besides as we all know the male-like hormone driven raging fangirls would demand something like that.

I just hope it's GitS though... XD

Ghost in the Shell seems likely. As much as I'd like it to be a Tsubasa TV series remake, I don't think the TV series was a 'big hit', getting canned and all. That, and it was under Beetrain and not IG or XEBEC.

The OVAs were really good and they were made by IG, but I don't think it will be Tsubasa, although, I would love it if it were.

They could do a remake from the beginning, and this time they'll do it right, with all the blood, drinking and violence intact.

Hmmm, could be Tsubasa Chronicles, after all those OVA's were a step up. No more Ghost in the Shell, not after the way that movie ended. It just doesn't feel necessary. Hopefully it's not Kimi ni Todoke they have in mind, a second season of the same exact thing is far too much. Though, a 15% expected increase in profits would be safe enough to assume more GitS.

GitS is a big possibility, but other choices could also be Higashi no Eden, Tsubasa, Pandora Hearts (XEBEC) or even a new Kimi ni Todoke
