Many times, in the fandoms, anime watchers and manga readers clash as to what should be better. Is watching anime and letting the directors and the characters rule over you better than reading the manga and letting your own imagination work its wonders on your mind? Well, many a time, the fans complain that the anime has failed to completely encapsulate the essence of the manga, and so it is quite disheartening.
The world of anime is much smaller and very minuscule as compared to the manga universe. The manga universe is very expansive, some of them get adapted into anime and they do fare well, however, due to the number of manga we have, it certainly does not come as a surprise that a lot of volumes of the manga are yet to be explored. Sometimes, it is very easily understandable that very amazingly fantastic series has managed to go under the radar like, With the Light by Keiki Tobe, which has excellent storytelling, the artistic expression is another beautiful feature.
Further, the character development is also a very core part of it, it follows a mother trying to raise an autistic child, and it also chronicles the problems that she encounters during it. It also shows how society does not always understand what she needs. It is focused on a very niche topic, now we have a lot of shows that show autistic people and people with special needs being portrayed in the media s well. However, there are popular anime like Vagabond by Takehiko Inoue, that seems like it should not have been made into an anime at all.
Manga adaptations don’t always work as anime, but these mangas feel ready to make the leap from the page to the screen. Every season, new manga adaptations appear on the anime scene, so it’s entirely possible that the shows on this list – and other fantastic manga out there that don’t yet have an anime adaptation – will see a second life in anime form someday. Such is the case with light novels as well.
Another such case is with an upcoming anime named ‘Days with my Step Sister’. Does the spewing rivalry with hidden love between you and your sibling is ruining your life too? Well, then this anime is going to be the perfect thing to relate to. This might also give solutions to your problem too.
