Sometimes when I read a manga… any manga really; I imagine what certain events or battles or incidents will look like as an anime.
But for now let’s talk about Shoujo manga in particular because I believe that lately it has become the underdog of the anime industry.
Some of you might not agree. But let’s take a look at most of the Shoujo anime in the past 2-3 years.
Anime production companies when they converted most Shoujo manga to anime; they have only released 12-13 episodes anime, some events have been completely altered, and the most annoying thing is that even if the manga ended; they don’t make a second season or even decent OVAs to finalize the story of the anime.
Actually, that doesn’t apply on recent Shoujo anime only; I mean there are some great Shoujo anime that were really successful in their time and yet when the anime ended we didn’t see much about it.
I know that not all of the Mangas of these anime have ended. However, some have finished and that was that. It’s really annoying.
I won’t mention any new anime coz well… I’m hoping they will prove me wrong and create second seasons or decent OVAs for them.
I also hate how they change drastic events or even ignore such events altogether.
I like both anime and manga.. but lately I have been choosing Shoujo mangas over animes and even wish that some mangas won’t be turned to animes coz I’m worried they might be ruined.
I like almost all anime genres and Shoujo is one of my favorites. It saddens me how it’s being either ignored or not properly presented.
What do you think about this? and do you prefer Shoujo anime or manga?
