As the title says, which manga do you feel should have an anime adaptation?

Definitely: A.I. Love You, and I began reading ST&RS..... It is sooooo gooood. That NEEDS an anime of it.

What else do you think needs an anime?

Wow, the community is pretty dead today, anyway i would like to see a Drifters anime, after it gets finished or at least an acceptable number of volumes.

Even though B.Ichi ended abruptly at volume 4, I would like to see as an anime. For Kingdom Hearts fans, a Kingdom Heart anime would be awesome because I read the volumes (not all) and got confused at the storyline.

@takashichea: I never got into Kingdom Hearts of FF but i agree game series surely need an anime/manga adaptation for the storyline and now that i am at it a BlazBlue anime would awesome.

For starters, I would love to see Triage X get a anime series. Created by the man who brought us Highschool of the Dead, Triage X is a great read and quickly has become one of my favorite manga series behind Sora no Otoshimono and Fate/stay Night.

Triage X (Chapter 9)
Triage X (Chapter 9)

Other than Triage X, I am not sure of what other manga series that I think should be given a anime series at this time. Thinking back, if I had my way, I would have them reboot the Kampfer anime, with the new series following the story/plot of the manga more and expanding on the great potential the franchise has within grasp (the same potential that was squandered in the lackluster efforts of the original series and the follow-up episodes of the second "series").

Eternal Sabbath and Doubt. Doubt should be given to the people that did Highschool of the Dead. Both them have a, "hey, look at me we're so cool" and teen slasher movie look and feel to them. The HSotD crew really nailed it and I think Doubt would benefit from that.

Eternal Sabbath is pretty awesome and very debbie downer and I haven't seen an anime that was over the top depressing on a regular basis in a looong time.

For continuations I'd vote Gunslinger Girl (JC Staff could do wonders with with this) and Nana.

Agreed, KH would make an awesome anime; now that they are making so many games and jumping from plot-line to plot-line, an anime would be nice to organize the series. It would also be interesting to see how they would mash Disney characters with anime-style characters. It would be pretty unique.

I would love to see Vagabond to get an anime adaptation. But i really have no idea what studio could really do the manga justice.

@The_Desert_Tiger: That's an awesome idea...

Cage of Eden, Gamaran, a good Mahou Sensei Negima anime, Kekkaishi needs to be completed, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure 2,4,7. Vinland Saga would be awesome with a good studio, Zetman, The Breaker, Transfer Student Stormbringer, A real adaptation of Getter Robo (With the Getter emperor) Drifters is also a good an awesome pick. Saint Seiya Episode G, New seasons of Hajime No Ippo, New seasons of Kenichi, A good Anime of Gantz, a good anime of Soul Eater...

Of course, I'm still waiting for an Umineko no naku koro ni chiru anime. (A good anime), and hopefully they fix the sin they commited with the first season (but this is only a dream)

Also a Higurashi no naku koro ni Kai Miotsukushi-hen

Ever17 or 999 would be awesome as anime (Thought it would be hard to do Ever17, due to the plot)

And Heaven's feel route of Fate stay night of course

Can't imagine Battle Royale as an anime, even though it is my favorite manga....however Vagabong needs at least a animated movie adaptation no doubt. It would be better than "Sword of a Stranger"

The next parts of Baccano, Durarara and To Aru (I want to see Fiamma and his 40 km flaming sword of doom)

I can imagine Battle Royale as an anime or as a OVA series

I would like to see an anime adaptation of Unbalance x2. I really enjoy the manga and I heard that the manga series is coming to the end, by some source or something.

NG Life would make an awesome anime. It's not long, and they'd manage to get the entire story in a 25 episodes max.

I totally agree with this as well! :D

Definitely Gantz, I read the manga and the anime did not just satisfied me as much as the manga did... Then Saint Seiya Episode G, that will make a great anime adaption since the manga is well drawn also the Next Dimension. Drifters as well... Then Kekkaiashi, I really got into the manga after the anime was over, I wonder why the creator stopped with the anime?

Soul Eater

You mean a reboot so that it can follow more of the mangas plot?

I think Zombie Powder should get an anime. Since it only really started off(and never continued) I think it gives a lot of leeway for a creative plot with no worries about angering manga purest.

@Kuro_San: Zetman already has an anime adaptation by TMS Entertainment planned for April.

A Dorohedoro OVA would be awesome, Hoshi no Samidare would be pretty cool for a tv series (preferably animated by gainax) as well as an animated version of pluto by Madhouse.
