This week's poll comes from StaticHD. Onto the subject of adaptations! For a series that you like, how would you best like it to be adapted to another form of media (if at all)?

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results
Question: Do you have a blog(s)?
Choices:
Yes, and at least one anime/manga related - votes: 1057 (9.9%)
Yes, but none of them are anime/manga related - votes: 799 (7.5%)
Used to, but not active anymore - votes: 1726 (16.1%)
Never started a blog before - votes: 7138 (66.6%)
There were 10720 total votes.
The poll ended: October 26th 2012

One of our least popular recent polls (maybe THE least popular). I guess many of you just don't blog. Xanga anyone? Although I think Tumblr is the current fad.

I wish when they adapt light novels to continue on with them to the end.
Or just make more original anime.

Wow! *rolls back several flips from the awesome poll* That is good. I said "Real Life Situation" because I recently read somewhere that when taking a psychological test to judge your sanity, you should just shoot for the first choice that hits you. Awesome poll, you bunch of mugs. (The test said I was functionally insane. That's a good thing.)

P.S. Oh, but wordy type novels are great too. Publish it in my genre, and I will buy it 99% of the time and be happy. Or perhaps savagely regret it's purchase later. *That's another, darker, story.* *** Flames of Hell*** ****that ONE book that doesn't allow itself to be read****

I didn't like any of the choices much... because while I can appreciate a good anime adaption of a good manga, I'd really rather have a great original anime or I suppose an adaption of a light novel over a manga... because the vast majority of the time anime adaptions of really good manga seem to slightly worse or really bad....

Actually, my favorite manga-to-anime adaptions involve manga that I might find decent but don't like enough to read past the first volume... often because of the art and/or general construct/pacing of the manga... Two big examples are xxxHolic and Ghost Hunt. Didn't care for the manga much at all, but really enjoyed the anime adaptations.

So in conclusion.... I guess I only want anime adaptions that improve upon their manga, not just straight adaptions, lol.

Who needs adaptations when you've got a manga >biggrin I'd prefer if all the anime which seem interesting to watch were adapted to manga instead :3

This. or at least are as good. I've heard that FMA:Brotherhood is one of the few that fits this (I only watched it).

I actually voted for TV live action, so stuff doesn't have to be cut out. BUT...too many Japanese actors can't act well. Sometimes it's only side-actors that suck, like Death Note, Goemon or 13 Assassins. Other times we're not as lucky, like 20th Century Boys (which also suffered from condensation of its plot).

So, if I could change my vote I'd go for anime adaptations. Though my limited hard drive and quota makes me pretty much only get original anime.

When a manga becomes an anime, it usually sucks badly. I'd rather they just stayed manga, but then we'd probably have no anime to base it off of. none

Absolutely no question in my mind for this one: manga only, no adaptations.

I can't stand anime, so the major one is out for me. Games and live actions based on manga/anime almost always stink (I've never seen any good ones, at least... oh, except Pokemon games). A musical based on manga sounds really cheesy... I doubt it would be any good. I'm not really interested in dramas or novels (manga is better). I'm guessing "real life situation" is just for lols, so I'm ignoring that one. The only choice I might be ok with is doujinshi... I personally have never read any good ones (so I didn't vote for that choice), but it's basically manga, so I imagine some could be good (as long as they don't include things I have no interest in, like fan pairings).

except the poke anime is based off the game

Why isn't there an anime OVA series option? That's what I prefer, since the production values are usually higher than a TV anime, and it doesn't have the limited running time of a movie.

I'd prefer the video game medium, only 'cause I gave up on anime (tv shows, not movies though). Some manga are practically made for the consoles/PC. Action and detective/mystery games especially. It's too bad you'll never see them come to the states (besides the top shounens - naruto, DBZ, etc).
