The term "manga" is used to refer to both comics and cartooning in Japan. Outside of the country though, the term is mostly used to refer to comics that were originally published in Japan. In Japan, manga is not just loved by kids but by readers of all ages. The main reason for this is the wide range of genres available for any potential reader to choose from. There are the ever-popular action, adventure, and romance genres. Then, there are fantasy, mystery, and sci-fi titles. The list goes on and on, and somehow, manga artists keep coming up newer and better ideas. In as early as the 1950s, manga has been a major part of the Japanese publishing industry. Manga stories as typically printed in black and white. This to reduce costs as well to keep with the time constraints of having to publish weekly chapters. With its popularity growing outside its home country, the manga market has become a multi-billion dollar industry.

With so much source material on tap, it was only natural for manga series to get their respective anime adaptations. These anime adaptations usually come as its manga counterpart is still on-going. This is presumably to boost sales of the former while spreading awareness for the latter. Not all manga series make the cut though, despite their apparent popularity and fan support. So we thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of the best manga that deserves an anime adaptation, stat! Check the list below, give them a read if you haven't yet, and tell us what you thought in the comments section.

    "This list wouldn't be complete with mentioning Vagabond. I still don't know why it still hasn't gotten a proper anime adaptation yet as it's a great story about the legend of Miyamoto Musashi that is begging to get one."

    "It' s one of the most popular seinen manga that is long overdue for an anime adaptation. It's very slice-of-life but tackles some pretty mature themes regarding life that a lot of readers can relate to."
