Have you ever wonder how many series had a better story/ending in Manga rather than Anime?

Well if you did, that's why I made this Forum.
I want to know how many are out there has a better Manga story/ending than the Anime had.

So I want you guys to post series that is Manga>Anime.
I only want you guys to put your two favorites, nothing more so other people can have a chance to post :)
P.S. Try to not put any spoilers on your post please.

I'll go first:

1. Mirai Nikki (Future Diaries)- Because the anime ends too early and if you've watched it completely then go back to the first episode and see the very first scene....... You'll notice that they show two huge spoilers that the manga didn't have and I HATED IT! Thank god that I read the manga first.

2. My Favorite Romance Manga not Anime- Ichigo 100- If you see the Anime then you would dislike the series because, first of all they skip a lot of scenes and also it ends as a harem, with no improvement on the characters or the story.

Fate Stay Night
There might be others I just can't think of them right now.

Rosario + Vampire

The manga is 100 times better than the anime.

Shaman King

Gash Bell (Zatch Bell)

The anime is extremely censored when it comes to the violence and action. Their endings are different as well, but I have been told it was becuase they went on hiatus.

The World God Only Knows (Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai) As good as t he Anime is, the Manga is better.
Kimi no Iru Machi (A Town Where You Live) The anime butchered the manga so badly that the story barely even made sense.

To be honest it is Naruto. The anime's pacing is horrible and full of flashbacks.

The manga's pacing is pretty bad at times too, should have been over at least 50 chapters ago -_-
I only keep reading because I've already invested this much time.

Also a second for Rosario+Vampire, they mangled it so bad that they would have to reboot it to make it any better.

It would be a shorter list to find counterexamples - anime which had a better story than the manga! And I honestly can't think about any out of my head. The closest thing to it would be Death Note, as I liked better how it handled the death of you-know-who compared to the manga, but the second arc was too rushed in my opinion and that makes it overall worse. FMA: Brotherhood was either as good as the manga (from episode 19 on) or worse. HunterXHunter, new edition, is pretty much identical to the manga, so you could say it's overall better 'cos it expands the experience. Anything else I can think of has suffered from the translation into anime. Not that I think that anime from manga shouldn't be done - it improves in details like the art, adds color, music and fluid movement etc. that are all good things. But storywise, TV writers who do adaptations are regularly worse than actual writers/mangakas.

Throwing another vote towards Rosario + Vampire. It's the only series so far that i've read that has caught up to its anime equivalent. I'm still like 20-30 volumes off from Fairy Tail, like 4 volumes off from Kimi ni Todoke, and the rest I only have a volume or two of anyway.

Ranma 1/2, simply because the manga had an ending (of sorts), whereas the anime did not. (And, in my opinion, the anime failed to convey the humorous aspects of the series nearly as well. Which may have lent to its demise despite the manga's success.)

I don't think the manga series for Kampfer has ended (the light novel series has, though), but I highly doubt that it could be anywhere near as bad as what was done in the anime. The anime is a prime example of why folks who like sex-change themes often can't have nice things. ;/

I think the real question must be: "better in anime than manga".
