**MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD ON MY POST)

Please excuse me if this topic has been done before, but I do think it's worth a look since most anime has its basis from a manga. This can be good for bringing to life, but has its troubles too, from keeping one from overpassing the other (usually the anime surpassing the manga, I'm looking at you Naruto) to being faithful to the manga source (I look at Negima, Sorcerer Hunters and Chobits as the worse offenders here).

The best I can think of:
-Yakitate Japan
-Bleach
-Naruto (when it was from the manga source)

The worst adaptations I have encountered:
-Chobits (so much out of order for events)
-Negima (2 series and both are good but not even close to manga closeness; I want Kotetsu and the School Tournament arc!)
-Sorcerer Hunters (Darn censors, ditto for Tengou Tenge from the American side)

So looking forward to your choices!

hm...i think pot did pretty well...i guess we can't have everything the same...esp in long series...it'll just be watching/reading the same thing. hm...but i really dun like how they have fillers...i know it takes time to write the manga...but if you did it like FMA it would be fine too...just no fillers!!

Azumanga Daioh was good but then again Azumanga wasn't a manga it was a comic strip.

I'm not sure what the official term is, but typically it's reffered to as "four panel strips," thoug i beleive it is still technically called a manga.

I think it worked so well since they did it all in little 5 minute mini-episodes. Really worked out well.

The MONSTER anime followed the manga religiously. Even the tiniest of details were carried over to the anime.
