Anime!Anime! recently carried out a survey to discover the manga series that readers want to see adapted into anime. The survey ran from 28 February to 7 March 2017. The survey asks about manga works which have not been adapted into anime and is split into two parts: on-going manga and completed manga. Following the readers’ comments on Twitter, more than 20 manga works were nominated for each section. We are revealing the results for the ‘ongoing manga’ section this time.
Out of the 1171 survey respondents, the male to female ratio was almost equal. As for age, 40% of respondents were in their 10’s and their 20’s, and over 10% were in their 30’s.
1st place: ‘Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san’
First place went to Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san, the romantic comedy that has been serially published in the monthly manga magazine Gessan from 2013. There are currently 5 volumes in circulation. Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san also ranked first place for ‘Bookstore Staff Recommended Manga 2017.’ It was ranked first place by men and seventh place by women.
Second place was taken by Delicious in Dungeon (Dungeon Meshi) which is currently being serialized in Kodansha’s Haruta. Delicious in Dungeon ranked first place in 2016. Although it didn’t reach first place this time, it was still highly ranked. Delicious in Dungeon was ranked third by men and fifth by women.
Third place went to Mr. Nietzsche (Nietzsche-Sensei) which is currently being published in Monthly Comic Gene. It came in at sixth place in 2016 and ranked higher this time. Mr. Nietzsche was ranked second place by women and sixth place by men.
As you see in the Top 10, half of the manga also highly ranked in 2016, including Delicious in Dungeon, Mr. Nietzsche, Kono Oto Tomare!, Oresama Teacher, and Yotsuba to. All these titles have a good chance to be turned into anime.
Although the survey contained the manga titled Koi wa Amaagari no You ni, it was not shown in the survey result because an anime adaptation was announced during the survey period. There might be a chance that anime adaptations of some of the manga which came in the Top 10 are already being considered.
