    Yup. I should have left the consecutive part out. I meant authors who were already well-known when they started their second hit series. Not necessarily as soon as they finished the previous one.

    Don't expect Ane to be axed unless a highly successful ecchi/romantic series debuts in the meantime. If it keeps bottoming out, a CP-fest is much more likely than a cut.
