Whilst animes generally aren't in it for 12 seasons, the source material they're so typically based on usually is, so the point is rather moot there; plenty of anime have inadequate endings due to the mismatch between finite TV airing lengths and more or less indefinite publication of manga and light novels.

This is the big problem with judging anime as a medium, few other mediums are so heavily adaptation based. There's been plenty of trends, such as the general decrease in average airing length but examples such as Guilty Crown are really a minority in being an anime original story.

American/Canadian 2D animations are in serious decrease. However, I see a huge increase in 3D CG tv show and movies from Disney, Pixar and etc.
