Have you ever experienced reading a wonderful manga that you had to look for the manga to anime adaptation of it? Then you found out that the manga has no anime adaptation yet, and now you’re stuck imagining how the characters sound? Worry not, a wave of new anime series will grace us in 2022.

When a manga becomes popular in Japan or globally, an increase in demand for anime or live-action adaptations is guaranteed. For a manga to be globally popular, it must reach a wider audience—by, say, translating it into multiple languages—bridging the language barrier. Translating manga into multiple languages is pertinent if you want it to be globally popular. Once an adaptation is announced, anime enthusiasts often read the manga beforehand. Reading the manga before watching the anime gives a different kind of satisfaction once you see your favorite characters animated. Some of the best manga to anime adaptations are Naruto, Fruits Basket, Horimiya, Jujutsu Kaizen, and Kimetsu no Yaiba. 

Manga vs Anime

Although a lot of anime adaptations are from manga, not every detail in the manga is conveyed in the anime version. You’ll miss out on content if you skip the manga—a cute confession from the side character, a sweet moment from the MC and the love interest, or maybe a really cool battle scene that didn’t make the cut.

If you still are on the fence about it, you don’t have to wait long to know what happens after the season ends! You can just read the manga. You don’t have to worry about the language barrier anymore either; a lot of manga series are translated into multiple languages.
