7 Anime That Only Have One Season but Very Impressive

Unlike most anime that have many seasons, this series of anime only appears in one season but can give a very deep impression to the audience.

Why only one season? Sometimes, it's because the material from the manga is already represented by all the anime episodes. So instead of dividing into seasons, the anime runs longer than normal until the end.

There are also original anime, which are not adaptations of manga, and the creators already have a clear vision. Finally, there is no need for additional seasons.

In addition, there may also be anime which due to various factors has delayed season 2. What the hell? Here's the list!

1. Death Note
