There are a few adoptions that can transition well from media to media. The Persona series (3, 4, and P4Arena) have done well to be manga, 4 did well in it anime adoption, and P3 movie is being smart to have it run for 3 films. The reason why it works is because it is a lengthy story with memorable and colorful characters, interesting plot, and concept of high school students by day, demon fighters at night sort of thing.

Sad to say this Tom but Captain Commando just doesn't have enough meat to keep it going in other media and it ends up with something that doesn't fit with the image of what you expect.

I'd say the CODE GEASS manga was disappointing. It was a very loose adaptation of the original anime story. It had some moments, but it didn't even have the KMFs. Imagine if they tried to do a GUNDAM manga without the actual Gundams.
