Im still surprised that komi-san has not been adapted into an anime by now, it is practically the most popular slice-of-life-romance-comedy series that is in current print.

The people want it so it is clear that they should do it.

Dungeon Meshi. I feel it'd be much more fun than all the crappy isekai they've been making nowadays.

Act-age and Chainsawman are WSJ series so chances that they gets anime adaptation are very high. I think Chainsaw it's that kind of series that will be pretty popular at west when gets anime.

Little dissapoit that Vanitas and Jigokuraku don't geted at that list.

>Komi

Yeah, that's gonna be a hard no. Bad art and horribly boring, it'd be a waste of resources to adapt. I haven't read anything else on the list unfortunately, but I hear good things about Chainsawman and the yakuza one. I'd kill for another Baby Steps season.

That would be Kaguya-sama. But yeah, I also wonder why Komi-san still hasn't been adapted considering its immense popularity.

Considering Komi-san's popularity and the way you worded it, this sounds like bait to me.

Komi-san has been a charming read so far, with some good themes about overcoming insecurities and other things. It's nothing profound, but with the right team an anime adaptation could become a classic.

Hell no not unless you want that masterpiece to look like a mediocre tv anime crap that's censored to hell & back.

Best course of action would be to animate it into a OVA with a strong budget but i doubt that'll ever happen because it'll decrease the chances of reaching a wider audience.

I'll weather just get a western physical release for the manga already & it'll be golden. no anime adaptation required.

You, sir, are a true contrarian. A surprise, considering your username.

I’d love an adaptation of anything by Hiroki Endo. I know the time for something like Eden is past, but maybe All Rounder Meguru? A semi- realistic MMA sport story? I can only dream.
I’d also love to see Ooku made into a tv series. It would have the chance of becoming a sleeper hit me thinks.

I have a feeling if they adapt Sun Ken Rock, they'd have the impression to do the CG-thing like Baki because the art "is so good it looks like 3d" and I wouldn't want that lol.

The Way of the Househusband hasn't quite clicked with me in manga form, but in the right hands, it could make for an excellent anime.

Ooku got a live-action movie and TV series. Dunno how it would do as an anime, but maybe it could be the next Descending Stories.
