Plus, you can just read the source material. Assuming you're Japanese.
hehe, sometimes, I wish I was ^^. I can't even read Japanese though.
Those are good points though, but from the way it sounds, the source material is done with(though I'm just going by what was posted in response to my initial question, I have no idea if it is or not for sure), in which case there is no point in letting the anime stop at the "best" part.
