There are a lot of manga that can easily be adapted to an anime. Some either didn’t get enough attention or hit too few people in who they’d attract. This list isn’t in any order and isn’t meant to convicence any big company, but enjoy. One thing common with a few of them, though, is the strong focus on style.

Cloth Road

Anime and manga lack change of clothing of the characters, so why not have an anime that features fashion? The author of the manga, Hideyuki Kurata, already had Read or Die adapted. Clearly worthy.

Yozakura Quartet

Unique character designs and a small gang of super youth in charge. Local politics and super powers would make for a good solid season.

Moon Boy

So the manhwa stopped after a few volumes (out of over 5 volumes) after the company Yen Press took over Ice Kunion. With Ice Kunion site down and the “Coming Soon…” redirect on the Yen Press site, one can only hope they keep Moon Boy licensed for their mid 2008 debut. Moon Boy has diverse character art, heavily styled character outfits, and great art inserts in each volume. Bunny people and demon like foxes wage a secret war on Earth. One of the main characters is obessed with Yu-Gi-Oh and how they got away with Upper Deck Entertainment not wanting money from them is unknown…

Rise R to the Second Power

The manga had an anime promo so it could have easily been done. Young pizza boy is sent to an odd world with a powerful girl. It worked for Elemental Gelade, but the only thing stopping it is it’s age.

Yotsuba&!

The fanbase for Yotsuba&! is still strong, just have to re-gather the production staff of the Azumanga Daioh anime.
