From the 18th of August to the 21st of August, Oricon's Monitor Research division conducted an online survey where respondents were asked which concluded manga series they would like to see continued. The results have only recently been published. 1000 people participated in the survey, and it was evenly distributed; there were 125 each of males and females in their teens, 20s, 30s and 40s.
The results are as follows:
- Slam Dunk
- Hana Yori Dango
- Death Note
- Hikaru no Go
- Itazura na Kiss
- Love Com
- Candy Candy
- Rurouni Kenshin

"I want to read 'Another Story'." - Female, 40s, Kanagawa prefecture.
And those who wanted Hana Yori Dango:
