What if there were audio dramas based on anime/manga? Would you listen to these audio dramas? An audio drama is basically like a movie or an episode of a show that you would hear instead of see. This is so that you would use your imagination visualize exactly what is going on. Audio dramas were really popular back in the times when radio was much more prominent but became less so once TV gained popularity. However, that doesn't mean that audio dramas are no longer around. There are still plenty of audio dramas such as the Doctor Who audio dramas by Big Finish http://www.bigfinish.com/hubs/v/doctor-who

There are actually fanmade audio dramas based on some anime/manga. For example, there are a series of audio dramas based on the Fruits Baskets manga http://furubadrama.weebly.com/index.html There are also two audio drama series based on Attack on Titan called Attack on Space https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHag1n-EhbLnPFS2T3ata_i0e6b39nAmC and Survey Corpse https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjYyUjIU1dyixUxjSwn-NeMabHtqTQUBg

Which anime/manga do you think should get the audio drama treatment?

There are quite a number of audio drama's lol. They are mostly only released in Japan as they are not popular oversea.

The only audio dramas I have bothered with is Sayonara Zetsubou sensei's.

There are plenty of really popular shows that have the voice actors doing little voice skits on certain radio shows, I dont know how often they do it now, but it was pretty popular in the early 2000's.

I'm already aware that there are audio dramas called drama cds in Japan. I meant that what if there were audio dramas based on anime/manga in English which is why I listed audio dramas that were in English as examples.
