Have you ever felt that there is a manga so good that if it became an anime it would be ruined?

Kitchen Princess!! Really great storyline but I feel like they would ruin the pacing...

Also they kinda already ruined the Anime for Chibi Vampire. I wished they actually followed the manga. They started alright and went off and added characters that weren't in the manga???? It was alright but could have been SO MUCH BETTER

Murcielago. While I would love to see it animated, I am just afraid that they will dumb down all the yuri elements, which will just make it not the same anymore.

I reckon Inside Mari may be a tough one given censorship, I won't mention that the ending pissed off a lot of people...

Most of the time I'd say not a problem, but there are some manga that really focus on the fact that they're manga, as well as others that just don't do well in an animated style. That's rare but it happens. However I personally never consider anything "ruined" because of a bad adaption/bad fanbase. For example, I still like anime that got live action adaptations, I just never watch the live action version because has that ever been good? Not as far as I know, maybe 1 time, but generally no.

Some manga benefits that are off topic are: There's a different feel to it, where you can just binge, leave off whenever, and come back. You could also do things like read it in a loud environment or when there's no PC nearby you can use your tablet.

This is a tricky question.

Each production is its own entity and the succes of one of them might not influence the other. So a bad anime can't ruin the fans prior to the animation, but can prevent newcomers to read the manga. I was once tempted to read Naruto, but after all the boring filler epsiodes I decided that I wanted to save my money for something else. So if it wasn't from Studio Pierrot filler peisodes , I would have bought some of the books at least.

An example of stuff I read and watched that had different fate was "Shikabane Hime". The anime lasted only 2 seasons while it should had more seasons because the manga had a lot of good content. Why ending after 2 seasons ? I don't get it, but the manga survived much later and I own the 23 volumes of it. Nether of them were bad, but I guess the viewership ratings ,maybe, weren't as good as the readers base.

So I guess studios only wants to make one or two seasons of already popular manga and move on something else so they don't get an fatigue from doing the samethings over an over, just like Naruto and other long term animes.

I think Attack On Titan is probably the next series that would over stay their welcome. It has already branched into so many other series that even the main series is beginning to suffer of lack of ideas. The Anime is sill late in the story so it might not be a problem yet. But I don't think the anime will ruin the manga., in fact, without the anime, I would probably never tried to read the manga because of the poor art style. The art is much better in the anime and the fight sequence much clearer. But what make me continue to read the manga it is the great plot of it. But the last book I read show signs of fatigues and filler content. That is sad. Maybe the author should plan for an ending soon before the story loose all its charms. If after he want sto start a completly new story in that world, I don't mind, but I don't want to reiive the stagnent days fo Naruto.

So here is a list of anime that sould have more seasons base on the quality of the manga :
Shikabane Hime, Harukana Recieve, Citrus.

The list on Manga that should stop branching into sub series :
Attack On Titan

Series that should stop :
Boruto, Swordart Online, One Piece, Casshern

Series that deserve an anime adaptation :
Girl Friends, Hana and Hina After School

None. I mean, look at Monster. Any manga can be adapted into an anime without it being ruined. It just has to be done right.

This one is getting an anime eventually, but there's no release season up for it yet (basically it's in development but idk if it'll even air this year). But Ten Count for me. It's yaoi, but I found it to be one of my favorite manga and I'm worried that in the anime they'll get rid of a lot of the smut scenes, which I could make without, it's just that these scenes have a lot of the character exposition and development in them so without thm I'm worried the anime will make the story shallow (kind of like Dramatical Murder's awful anime adaptation).

What are your thoughts on this?


Sanctuary. The manga Sanctuary would be ruined if adapted into a modern anime. Besides the art style being archaic by modern standards, referencing the communist run Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge would make so many godless leftist snowflakes melt they'd literally drown their families in tears. Not too mention I doubt many people would appreciate seeing just criminal the government is and how like the Yakuza government really is.

Then there are the sex scenes, the violence and the fact that its plot is way too complex for the Harry Potter generation.

Maybe if its release was limited to just Japan, but the perpetually offended white left would literally excrete all over themselves in rage - look how butthurt they got over Goblin Slayer and Rising of the Shield Hero, not to mention Keijo!!!!

As amazing as it could be - Sanctuary could never be adapted.

I've seen many beloved manga turned to trash in their anime adaptation in terms of loss of art quality (Berserk 2016, Junji Ito Collection) because it's totally unfeasible to retain that much detail on a weekly anime budget, maybe as dedicated OVAs they could be as true to the source material as possible (although I still adore Berserk 1997). My choice is A Bride's Story by Kaoru Mori because everything she draws from clothes to backgrounds to architecture is so detailed and crafted with care that it would just be lost in the adaptation. It's also features an arranged marriage of an adult woman to a boy 8 years her junior in 19th century Asia so that might be too uncomfortable for some
audiences to handle.
