This. So much this.

I wouldn't mind Madhouse resurrecting Trigun for a more faithful adaption of the manga. If only to make combat scenes coherant.

I actually have only ever read the Gunsmith Cats manga. As a rule, I've read more manga than I've watched anime. I guess that I am going to be in for quite a surprise when it comes time for me to actually settle into watching that OVA.

On the same topic, was there ever a Ninja Cadets manga? I assume there wasn't, but the OVA was only two episodes long. If I understand it correctly, this was due to the passing of the director. I hope that sometime in the future, there is some sort of reboot for the concept.

Pet Shop of Horror's, hands down for me. The original is a "good" taste, but it's just so woefully lacking, in amount if nothing else. This might just me being semi soul-crushed over losing Tokyopop, and thus My intake Of Pet Shop: Tokyo, but all the same it's something that I feel deserves to be made, though the interest in it is far past it's prime. Pity.

Ouran High School Host Club definently, I'd love to see the chapter of the Spors festival animated. It's just so funny. But another I'd love to see animated is the first Manga I've ever read, Yotsuba, now thats a good Manga and iuts a shame that it doesn't get an anime but I do respect Kiyohiko Azuma's wishes of not having it become a anime even though I don't like it.

Good to hear I'm not alone in this. I'd love a proper anime adaptation of Ikkitousen (once the manga is done or close to completion).

I know this franchise has been awfully animated 4 times already, but all they did there was emphasize the ecchi aspect of the series and forget about the plot, which is the best part of the original manga.

It's a shame chances are it would never happen, since a real adaptation it's going to be above 52 episodes for sure, and by the time the series is over, its popularity won't be high enough to justify the production costs.

----

Another series I want animated is Tenhjo Tenge. It was finally completed last year, and once again, the manga has a great mix of ecchi, action scenes, humor and an unpredictable story. The way too early anime adaptation didn't cover half of the good stuff.

----

Bonus: I used to love Elfen Lied. And the last 6 volumes that weren't made into anime would have been a nice visual fanfare to see in motion, at least.

The suggestion of Tenhjo Tenge fits well with some of the mentions that we've had around here before about finishing Air Gear, considering that the artist was the same. I really would like to see either of the series, or preferably both, receive some polishing in the anime world. For that matter, would I be all alone if I said that some of the Dragonball adaptations that we discussed on the forum before that were clearly fan hoaxes wouldn't be that bad? I know it's a long running series, but I actually wouldn't object to it.

I've always wished they would make another Spiral: The Melody of
Logic that continues with the manga arcs. First good anime I
watched and still one of my all-time fave's.

That would make a lot of sense. I remember one of the English dub voice actors joking that while the show's advertisements asked 'Who are the Blade Children?', fans would have to read the manga to find out. Sadly, thus far, I only have the first volume to the manga. I really need to stop dragging my feet with that series.

All Rounder Meguru, if the author is ever able to write it consistently, would make a great series.

Also, Kamen Rider Spirits. Sooner rather than later.

As soon as I saw this thread, the first series that came to mind was Chrono Crusade. The anime was one of the worst things I've ever seen. Obviously there wasn't enough story to animate, but the amount of changes they made, especially to Aion, the villian of the series really made me angry. In the manga, Aion is actually a pretty likable character, but the anime version is a sick and demented pervert.

Okay... sorry for the rant Embarassed

I can't believe nobody's said this yet, but a better Blade of the Immortal anime.

I think I love you forever.

Pershop of Horrors is, in my opinion, one of those "intelligent" anime that really transcends the stereotypes of the genre. For some reason, it just feels... deeper and more thought-provoking than your average shoujo mystery manga. And Matsuri Akino clearly put an immense amount of research into the series. I must've re-read the series at least five times, and I'm never disappointed.

And let's not even get started on the gorgeously intricate art... Heh. Is it obvious that PSoH is my favorite manga of all time?

Anyway, it's rather upsetting that the interest in the manga isn't great enough to warrant a real anime to be made of it. But perhaps PSoH: Tokyo will change all that? -fingers crossed!-

I can't believe nobody's mentioned Pokémon Adventures yet. Rolling Eyes I mean really, with as good as the main video game series is, how horrible the current Pokémon anime always has been, and with how much credibility Satoshi Tajiri has given to the manga series, being so much like what he himself envisioned... "Neglect" is far too weak of a word to use, in my opinion.

i'd throw out attack on titan. the action left me breathless only by reading it, i can't imagine how good this could turn out if it received a big budget and was worked on by capable people. i know, there's some kind of live action film coming, but imho a setting like that translates best into anime, where you aren't bound to use cg effects to realize many of the story's key moments.

otherwise i'd say solanin. simply because i want to hear the song "solanin" itself.
