Out of my top 170 shows, 57 haven't been adequately adapted yet. Out of those 57, I have reason to believe 13 will eventually be adequately adapted, due to the high sales of their previous seasons and ongoing hype. An additional 14 shows are no big deal even if they aren't adapted, since their best parts have already been adapted and the rest doesn't matter anyway. Subtracting these two groups, we come up with a list of "The Thirty Tragedies." These are the thirty franchises which should be receiving additional animated support, but likely won't receive any. Each one of these tragedies is worse than, say, Albania being wiped off the face of the map. Thirty is a lot to stomach in one go, but let's try to list them in severity of harm from the absolute worst to the slightly less awful:
Spice and Wolf
Baka to Test
Tales of 'X'
High School of the Dead
Seikai no Senki
Flame of Recca
If these thirty shows were given adequate animated support, I would have zero complaints with all of the rest of the industry's decisions. It's because these thirty shows haven't received the support they deserve that I question the sanity of Japan and the anime production committees as a whole.
While I'm at it, I may as well thrown in how ridiculous it is for Rewrite to not have been adapted. Every key visual novel adaption has been a wild success in terms of anime blu-ray sales. Rewrite wouldn't be any different. It's insane to not adapt Rewrite. Not only is it an artistic masterpiece, but it would be a mega-hit commercially the moment it hit the ground too. We could call Rewrite the phantom 31st tragedy of this world.
