WHY STOPPED THE SEQUENCE?

Really..even though I enjoyed watching hayate S3 and S4....but It still bugs me...why wasn't the storyline followed in anime.....I mean the athena arc or golden week...I would feel better if they really continued the story...This question hunts me..really everything was going so well after season 1 and 2 ....I see no reason to cancel the sequel....S2 finished in 09/10 and S3 started in 2012 ....took a long break...even after making the movie....So....Was there a problem? a serious problem?...Do you guys know anything about ir??

This is just my conclution, not the actual fact.

1. Popularity, You have to accept that Hayate is not as much famous like Bleach, Naruto, etc in Japan. Romantic Comedy Parody is not the main JAP Cartoon line. But, Battle (Can be found in Shonen Jump) or Service (Nearly ecchi but not) is the main line that can make money in Japan.

2. SS2 is the failure, I think. Cause in Japan, Most Hayate's fan already read manga before the anime. But J.C. did SS2 following manga. Only Hina's fans like this SS.

3. Hina Incident. After Hata-sama create the heartbreak scene of Hina, many Hina's fans begin to hate Hayate.

Like Nechigawara said, the popularity of the anime was one of the issues as to why there was big time gap between the seasons, though season 1 of the series was popular among some fans for its quirky humor and random gags. Kenjiro Hata apparently wasn't happy with how SynergySP was handling the series with their constant rewrites and had the animation studio changed to J.C. Staff for the second season. However, most of the fanbase from the first season was turned off by its lack of random gags, the animation and being a carbon copy of the manga which resulted in the second season being a total flop.

Three/Four years later, after the popularity of the manga had picked up. Kenjiro Hata made Manglobe the new animation studio for the anime and had became more involved in the anime by writing the stories for Heaven is a Place on Earth, CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU and Cuties.
