Durarara is a spiritual successor to Baccano, but that doesn't make them directly related, regardless that they were done by the same writer :-/

Dragon Age: Origins was a spiritual successor to Baldurs Gate. Totally unrelated in lore and canon.
I don't think they were saying that they're canonically related. But with both being written by the same author and having the same studio handle the anime adaptation, they do share a lot of DNA in common.

Some that I would like to see with extra seasons or just more of:

Broken Blade
More Blame! Heck more of anything by Nihei.
Birdy the Mighty - the conflict with the big bad never got resolved.
Claymore
Deadman Wonderland
More Full Metal Panic!
Gangsta - besides the studio going bankrupt, the mangaka got sick and manga went on hiatus for a while.
Gantz- I guess weirdly I want a complete Gantz. The anime ending was unsatisfying.
High School of the Dead - which we will never get, because the writer died, but I still want more.
More Princess Jellyfish.
Rideback- I really liked the first 3 episodes and then it kinda of went down hill trying to squish stuff into a single season, but you could see that there was other elements that they didn't have time to flesh out. I want a reboot.

There is another 7 year time skip after the battle in the North and during this time Raki was still traveling with Priscilla and Claire had not encountered either of them during the seven years. The ending of the manga does include Claire reuniting with a much older Raki and confronting Priscilla again but in a much grander scale. Basically the anime just threw the end game into the last couple of episodes of the anime and skipped out on many story arcs full of character development. So there is no way to continue the manga without starting over given that Priscilla is already dead and she is the endgame for the manga. Otherwise you definitely would have seen the politics of the monster-hunting organization explored.
No that is not right about the end of the anime.
[Show spoiler]Claire does not kill Priscilla. Isley steps in and takes Priscilla away after Raki and Jean stop Claire from going full on Awakened
. One of the themes of Claymore is that revenge isn't worth throwing your humanity away.

There could be a way of continuing Claymore with what they had. They would just have to separate
[Show spoiler]Claire and Raki again. She could send him to the city of Rabona while doing something else. He gets kidnapped and then by circumstance he's reunited with Priscilla and Isley. Then do the timeskip and we are back on track
. Still its been a long time since Claymore came out. I think the best thing would be to reboot the whole thing, but again not going to happen. Glad I have the manga at least.

I'd also be down for more 'Golgo 13'. No shortage of source material to draw on there. But I would prefer they not do it in standard def this time.

The Ancient Magus' Bride
Aho-Girl

High School of the Dead - Won't ever happen due to death of original writer.
Hinamatsuri
Kare Kano

I'm surprised no one has mentioned The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Tales of Zestiria the X, and Alderamin On The Sky yet.

I would love to see more of those 3 series. Just can't get enough of shows that have smart characters, strong female leads, zero fan services, and attractive character designs.

Great shows don't need fan services or nudity to attract viewers. These Japanese filmmakers have poisoned their young generations enough that will take years to undo the damages, but that is a totally different topic though.

Personally, I find most anime to be best when they stick with the standard 26 episodes, although there are exceptions.

It isn't really an anime, although it was animated in Japan, but I would have loved it if Cybersix hadn't been cancelled after only 13 episodes.

I'm one of those young people who has been poisoned by all of that glorious filth.

12 Kingdoms in a heartbeat. Once it got rolling, it was, and remains, one of the most compelling bits of world building I've seen to date.

The Qwaser of Stigmata, technically had 2 seasons, but should have gotten more, I hate it when a series ends at a cliffhanger/unfinished story arc.

I see some others have mentioned Big O! I guess it was technically 2 seasons but only 26 episodes, and the lack of concrete resolution will haunt my dreams forever.

Outlaw Star. So much more they could do with that universe and characters. Caster guns? Space Wizards? Really interesting fusion of mysticism and technology in that series.

Martian Successor Nadesico. What happens next? Not to spoil anything, but so much mystery left to explore.

Well Big O did get a Season 2 when Adult Swim Co-Produced it. Normally it would have been just the 13 episodes but the series did so well on Toonami that Adult Swim convinced Sunrise and Bandai Visual to make Big O II despite how poorly Season 1 did in Japan.
