why did it take over 20 year for the Ushio and Tora anime to come out?

when they had a OVA in 93?

also is there any "Other" anime that did this?

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure went through the same process. JoJo had a bunch of OVA episodes telling the Stardust Crusaders arc in the 90s and very early 2000s. It wasn't until 2012 that JoJo had an anime adaptation that right now is covering all the manga, with part 4 airing now. What is interesting is that the manga for JoJo is 3 years older than Ushio and Tora. I can't give an exact reason as to why this happens, but at least I managed to give an example of a similar situation.

Any source material, or just manga/light novels/etc.?

Because you could also chalk up a few anime based on video games and their script (or lack there of).

I'm the one who changed the title to say "source material" since that's what the OP's opening post implied (the original title just mentioned Ushio and Tora). Since it's a discussion topic, I think it's fair to count pretty much any direct source material where there was a large time gap between the "original" and the anime adaptation.

The Count of Monte Cristo was published 1844.

Anime came out 2004.



I'd hate to be those fans. Good God, what a wait...

Pretty sure an anime adaptation was not on the minds of those fans.

Jojo's got an adaptation because David Productions knows a winner when they see it. Ushio and Tora came out probably because they saw Jojo's success and decided to go for it.

The big difference is that these old series got an anime adaptation because they could make cash. Usually, it's the other way around and studios are paid to make an adaptation serving as an ad.

The only other thing I can think of that can be similar is RomeoXJuliet.

They just announced the start of another series for CardCaptor Sakura, both manga (original 1996) and associated anime (original 1998).

/anime-news/2016/06/02/new-cardcaptor-sakura-manga-debuts-see-clamps-color-cover-and-title-page

called the "Clear Card Arc," that reintroduces Sakura Kinomoto in her first year of junior high school, and the official announcement of the new anime project.
