    Life after high school (university, work stories)- I want to see the K-On! girls at their university, not just more side stories or flashbacks. Clannad After Story did this wonderfully but there aren't many other examples.

    More grown-ups - not really a genre, but I'm long past my high school days and would like to see more stories like Black Heaven and Zone of the Enders where it isn't the student council's job to stop the demon beast invasion.

    I agree 100% about wanting more serious science fiction and space opera. I'll reference Western authors since that's what I've read.
    - for teens, look to Andre Norton, James Schmitz, others for YA fiction
    - for grown ups, David Drake's Hammers Slammers short stories and novels could be made into a gritty military SF series that might appeal to fans of Blue Gender and Gundam. The Lt. Leary serious might also appeal to Bodacious Space Pirates fans since this universe uses sailing for FTL travel.
    - for less violent fare look to authors like Larry Niven, Robert Forward, Greg Bear, David Brin. There are thousands of good stories where the science isn't just Star Trek reversed polarity babble or Star Wars magic.
