To Love Ru has to be Xebec's best well known anime. I am disappointed, but not surprised, that the article failed to mention that.

I had to laugh at the fact that the author put a bunch of old mecha anime instead of the actual popular and more known anime franchises from Xebec like To Love-ru, Love Hina and many others, seriously, Hanna Kappa? who the hell watch this? lmaooo

For what it is worth, the source does list To Love-ru, but also lists Nadesico and Fafner, as opposed to Love Hina and others.

Is it over for XEBEC? Will they declare bankruptcy at some point? And what will become of the To Love-Ru franchise? Should there even be a third season of To Love-Ru Darkness? Or should the remaining chapters be animated in OVA form like SILVER LINK did with Strike the Blood III?

Because there's content in the remaining chapters that are just too explicit to air on Japanese television. It's no different from hentai and yet I wanna see it get animated anyway.

This should have happened before Xebec made Inviable Victory.

I thought Martian Successor Nadesico was what Xebec is most well known for, it's certainly a more well known show than To Love Ru.

While Xebec has made mecha shows that have garnered more popularity than others, what I believe some folks are taking issue here is that they have also been known to animate ecchi series, with To Love-Ru being their most popular work in the genre, but this article doesn’t make note of that anywhere. For some people, MSN may be more known to them, but I have a very strong feeling that To Love-Ru is more popular generally than Hana Kappa. The mecha shows are understandable, but while it is a show they animated, having that series appear instead of To Love-Ru in this article feels misplaced if one is trying to make a list of Xebec’s popular works.

Don't you guy think the reason they ignore TLR is probably because Sunrise don't care about that. It seems to me that mentionning the series that might be used by Sunrise would be more logical in that kind of article. I have my doubt about Sunrise keeping TLR...

If that's the case, then maybe they should just sell the rights to another anime studio that will do a much better job adapting the manga chapters into animated form (like when TNK sold the anime rights of High School DxD to Passione). I would love a complete reboot that faithfully adapts the original TLR manga as well as its sequel TLRD, but that might be too much to ask for. It's a shame that some really good chapters including specific story arcs did not receive the anime treatment they deserve.

What anime studio would do a better job animating To Love-Ru?

Not studio related but Hiraku Kaneko being the director for future TLR projects doesn't seem like a bad choice. His ecchi works are unparalleled visuals-wise.
