Earlier this year, the market research firm Oricon also conducted a survey to determine which manga respondents thought received successful live-action adaptations. Nodame Cantabile, Hana Yori Dango, and Jin were the top three choices. The Japanese portal site Cobs Online conducted a similar poll, asking users which manga should not be made into live-action films. One Piece received a majority of votes in that poll.
