Let the appreciation of cancelled anime begin (this means pics, ramblings, opinions, etc). Please try to avoid Hentai, simply because most of it has been cancelled.

I'll start. 
 
Hey you guys remember Shaman King? That show's premise was great and the story and characters really delivered! The 4Kids dub sucked though.

Oh wow, I was totally wrong, it eneded back in 02. It was the manga that finished recently.  
 
However, Shaman King aired two full seasons, it was never cancelled, the story just ended.

Shaman king anime sucked, didnt stick to any of the manga story, the ending was terrible, Love hina was a great series
 
To Love Ru
 
The anime finished and they didnt even use half of the story from the manga, the last episode of the anime was like 1/4 of the manga

Wait, what? 
 
Define "cancelled." Cancelled from TV broadcast and DVD release in the US (a la Sailor Moon)? Cancelled from TV broadcast in Japan?  
 
To my knowledge Love Hina hasn't been cancelled. In fact, FUNimation just re-released Love Hina as a complete box set in February, and I think you can still get Bandai's box set used via Amazon.

Well the thing is there very little show that are actually cancel. Since most show are for about 12 to 24 episode. Once it done, that it. Now, if you ask "why some anime did not have get a sequel", you will get the answer that you want for this topic.
 
The one that I know that was not finish is Victorian Romance Emma. OK, here to story. The first series was product but by the end, the studio did not have the budget to go on for the second season and end it on a sad note. Now, 2 years later, the studio finally made the second half of the show and concluded with a proper ending.

In the case of Love Hina, there was originally going to be a second season of the series for TV and one of the episodes was the OAV "special" featuring Motoko and Keitaro dealing with Motoko's sister. In one interview, Megumi Hayashibari even discussed her anticipation of her voicing Haruka during the part in the manga where she was rejecting the ring that Seta was trying to give to her.  But the studio that animated the series ran out of funds for the animation budget and were forced to cancel those plans. Rurouni Kenshin's TV series is another notable example as the series got forced into filler episodes following the Kyoto arc when it caught up with the manga storyline. The show's ratings dropped and while there were plans to animate the Jinchuu arc into the TV series, the series was canceled after 90+ episodes due to pummeling ratings.
