14 Manga Inspired Anime

[ADS] Advertisement

More than 300 anime are released every year, the vast majority of which are inspired by mangas! In this article, we are going to recommend some manga-inspired anime for you to watch and read the manga.

Mangas are the famous Japanese Comic magazines, resembling American Comics, with several changes. Of course, manga is not a copy of American comic books, let alone other types of magazines.

The main difference of a manga is its content in relation to art, stories and expression. Japanese stories will always have a very strong side that leads to a strong expression of feelings, that is, always be prepared to watch anime like CLANNAD and ANGEL BEATS.

This list is based on my opinion, BAD and also opinions from friends. We always recommend that you check out the anime listed by us, as we always try to bring content that everyone likes, haha.

Unfortunately this article is written in an open way, without choosing genres or styles of story that a particular audience likes, so probably some stories you may not be interested in.

Kiss X Sis

Synopsis: KissxSis tells the story of Keita Suminoe, a young student from elementary School. He is living in a house with his parents and his twin half sisters, Ako and Riko, who kiss and harass him, always competing to see who shows more love for him. Although they consider themselves brothers, they do not share a blood relationship; their parents were married while they were in childhood.

Still, the relationship deeply disturbs Keita, since his parents allow this relationship, and since they were raised together, and scandalizes most of those who come to know of this. The twins, however, are insistent, and do everything possible and impossible to stay with him. At this juncture, other characters who have this same interest enter, and the plot unfolds on top of the dispute for Keita.

Anime Kiss x Sis - Love between brothers

Comments: KissXSis is a romantic comedy with a less adult erotic content, despite several indecent scenes. It's a relatively light story and cliché at some points, like the Young Little Brother wanting to keep only a common relationship with his sisters and the various disputes over him, however, the story always creates points that make him reach some climax with some( s) of the girls. among many romantic comedy anime this is one of the ones I recommend the most.

The order of the anime is a little confusing, it doesn't get to be like Monogatari Series, but it is inconsistent between the chronology of Main Anime and OVA's. It makes no difference to watch Anime or OVA first, but following the order can help you a little. Taking into account that both anime and OVA have 12 episodes each.

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu

Synopsis: Class 3-E of the Kunugigaoka school is presented to a very strange figure. It turns out that he is an octopus-shaped monster and from today he will be their new teacher!

To make matters worse, this monster was responsible for destroying much of the moon and intends to do the same with the planet Earth a year from now, but first he will train all students in this room for a very peculiar mission: to teach them to kill him in less than a year, before he commits such an act.

Assassination Classroom

Comments: The coolest thing about Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, or Assassination Classroom, is its charismatic and surprising characters. It is difficult to imagine a kind monster that befriends those who wish to kill him, for the sake of justice and for being a mutual desire.

The story develops very well, with 2 seasons of 24 episodes, impossible not to leave something good. Of course, no story is perfect, but there are some that are close to that.

We have roles distributed in history, with the protagonism divided, despite having some that stand out more. It is a Shounen, so after all, it will be something fictional with skills involved in the medium, however, superhuman skills, so nothing too serious.

Trinity Seven

Synopsis: Every day is a normal day in the small town where Kasuga Arata lives; however, everything changed on the day of the Black Sun, and following him, a magician appears before him. The Black Sun caused the Breakdown Phenomenon that destroyed the city where he lives.

Because of this, his normal life was artificially reconstructed by a Grimoire that his childhood friend had left. Just what is the aim of the wizard coming to town? What will he do with Grimoire’s memory.

Trinity Seven

Comments: Trinity Seven is super interesting and exciting. Although the main character has a wrong view on some things, haha.

The powers of the characters are unique and each one evolves throughout history so as to never disappoint. The chronology is also very fluid, with details very well explained, despite having some small holes.

But in case you don’t like Harem, Baddas character and things like that, don’t watch, but it’s worth the experience of watching, okay?

Yamada-kun A 7-nin No Majo

Synopsis: Ryuu Yamada is known as a delinquent at his school; he was bored of classes after a year of attending school. One day, he accidentally falls down a flight of stairs to Urara Shiraishi, the school’s ace student.

Yamada wakes up and finds that he has organs with her switched! The two try to reverse the change and discover that the kiss causes the exchange of the body. At the suggestion of the vice- student council president Toranosuke Miyamura, who revives the Supernatural Studies Club. The club meets other "witches" with different powers that are activated with a kiss.


Comments: It is a mixture of genres, more focused on romantic comedy and magic, but this presented in a school universe.

Interesting are the personalities of the characters, each one having one according to their powers, but it is worth remembering that it is their personality that defines the powers (repeating ...). The powers are also legal, as they are somewhat innocent powers, but which in fact depend on their users. Having variety to your favors, as combinations.

This is one that anyone should watch, out of curiosity, analysis or entertainment.

Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi (Erased)

Synopsis: The struggling manga author Fujinuma Satoru is plagued by the fear of expressing himself. However, he has the supernatural ability to be forced to avoid deaths and catastrophes by being sent back in time before the incident occurred, repeating the time until the accident is avoided.

One day, he is involved in an accident that incriminates him as a murderer. Desperate to save the victim, he goes back in time only to see himself as a middle school student a month before his classmate Hinazuki Kayo disappears. Satoru now embarks on a new quest: to save Kayo and solve the mystery of her disappearance.

Comments: This is one of the best anime on this list, being one of the most talked about and seen during its release, and its MAL score of 8.65.

His story is simply fantastic, one criterion for this is to add elements of time travel, something that many authors are afraid to attribute to their works, as it is a theme that if misused will make everything a failure. Erased does not present complex themes, as does Steins; Gate, although Erased is the type of story that does not need much explanation, but rather the appreciation of its characters, scenarios and the development of the story.

One of the points that stand out most in Erased is its characters, their stories and also their importance throughout history, despite being broxantes in some moments. Having moving stories and some also have a strong determination for their goals or the well-being of others. The novel presented in the story is also fun, something more innocent and simple.

Kiseijuu: Sei No Kakuritsu

Synopsis: One day, aliens called Parasites, who stay with living beings and take their bodies, invade Earth. They attack men by entering through their noses and ears.

Izumi Shinichi is a 17 year old boy who lives with his parents in a quiet Tokyo neighborhood and ends up being the target of one of these aliens, but the individual fails to try to dominate his body. Having to coexist, what will their destinies be like?

Comments: The Kiseijuu manga is one of the most famous, in addition to having an incredible brand of reprinting copies. It is not for nothing, in fact it is something deserved.

The story becomes very realistic and touching because of Shinichi’s emotional growth, showing a reality, let’s say unique. His development is crucial for Kiseijuu to be what he is. Having passed close to death and having very sudden emotional shocks, he reaches someone mature.

It was difficult for him to accept everything that happened, I think it’s natural, haha. There is not much to talk about the characters, they are all ordinary people who have or have had normal lives.

To Love-ru / To Love-ru Darkness

Synopsis: To Love-ru’s story revolves around Rito Yuuki, a high school student who can’t (or can’t) confess to the girl of his dreams, Haruna Sairenji. One day, when he returns home and goes to the bathtub, a mysterious naked girl appears out of nowhere. Her name is Lala Satalin and she comes from the planet Deviluke, where she is the heir to the throne.

Her father wants her to return to her home so that she can marry one of her candidates for a husband. But she ends up deciding that she wants to marry Rito and stay on Earth. With that, Commander Zastin was ordered to bring Lala back. He reports to the emperor that Rito could marry Lala, but Earthman says that marriage is impossible, unless it is with the person you care about.

Lala truly falls in love with Rito and says she wants to marry him after hearing what he said. Her father decides that if Rito is able to protect Lala, then he can marry her, but if he cannot protect her from his other suitors and does not meet the king’s expectations, he will kill Rito and destroy the Earth. However, Lala convinces her father not to destroy the Earth, deciding to live there with Rito.

Comments: To Love-ru is a typical romantic comedy, however, with some different and exciting things, haha.

To Love-ru in general has a very well developed story wrapped solely in ecchi, but it's not like us fanservice, is something that is part of the story, at least the fans of ecchi and romantic comedy are not disappointed with To Love-ru.

The main character has many peculiarities. Being commonly hated for being considered the “Virjão dos anime”, throughout history he loosens up, but this thanks to the characters that have many perverted plans, as well as Momo’s “Harem” Plan.

The coolest thing about this story is its characters and the ecchi, if you like it. The characters are charismatic and as in many anime, they have the typical Tsundere way, melting in the arms of the main character at the end ...

More than 300 anime are released, with almost 200 anime inspired by mangas! The manga are the famous Japanese comic books, resembling American Comics, with several changes. Of course, manga is not a copy of American comic books, let alone other types of magazines.

The main difference of a manga is its Content in relation to art, stories and expression. Japanese stories will always have a very strong side that leads to a strong expression of feelings, that is, always be prepared for watch anime like CLANNAD and ANGEL BEATS, do you understand?

Many anime are released and few are those that reach the expected numbers, which may be different for your manga. This list was made based on my recommendations and those of others. Try to watch and read these works, it is very worthwhile, at the end of the article we will tell you where to buy and things like that, there are always options!


Synopsis: Based on the Hiromitsu Takeda manga series. This romantic comedy is about Takeru Ohyama, a perverted typical teenager. His new school does not require entrance exams, and he just did co-ed! Unfortunately, his dreams of a happy school life are dashed when he finds out that school is much more than it looks.

All students exercise a special point-a-Maken to unleash their magic skills in duels! Can Takeru find a Maken that works for him? Even trying to fit into a new school and deal with all kinds of problems with girls?

Comments: Maken-ki is like any other anime ecchi with a lot of Fansevice, but it’s worth checking out for the story and for being a very agitated anime. Because you are very agitated, you will hardly be bored, in addition to containing comedy and a bit of romantic comedy. Another strong point is to have a Badass character, haha!


Synopsis: Somewhere in the future the Earth has been invaded and is at war with alien beings from another dimension called Nova. In order to fight them, Pandoras, genetically altered girls with a great fighting capacity and special powers and Limiters, partners of Pandoras who use "Freezing", which limits Nova’s mobility.

The series focuses on Kazuya Aoi, a "limiter" whose late sister was a "Pandora" and Satellizer El Bridget, a powerful "Pandora" with a cold personality, both enrolled in the West Genetics Academy, one of the many academies that train Pandoras and limiters .

Despite all the warnings his friends give him about Satellizer, who suffers from intense aphobia, Kazuya decides to become his friend and Limiter. The story goes on with the relationship of Kazuya and Satellizer, the academy’s students and the war against Nova.

Comments: This anime encompasses several different elements, an anime for almost every taste! The story has a very interesting Sci-fi that involves many fights between the characters, besides having drama and also ecchi. Sci-fi is confusing to understand in Freezing, but nothing better than having a good look at the story.

It’s really cool how the characters’ past is demonstrated, which leads us to a spirit of overcoming any past hurt, overcoming problems is very much pointed out in Freezing. O ecchi it is taken a little more dramatically, but sometimes forced. I highly recommend it for its diverse themes and characters 

Mangaka-san to assistant-san to

Synopsis: The story tells the life of a perverted mangaka, Yuuki Aito and his assistant, Sahoto Ashisu. Constantly pressured by his editor and inexperienced with girls, Aito asks Ashisu to act as a reference.

Make-in, Freezing and Mangaka-San anime

Comments: It’s a really cool anime to watch for fun. It encompasses romantic comedy and romance, nothing forced, all natural. Even though he is a pervert, the story never becomes erotic, without exaggerated fanservice. In addition to the characters being very essential for this pleasant atmosphere in the story!

Nazo no Kanojo X

Synopsis: When the strangely and peculiar Mikoto Urabe transfers to Akira Tsubaki's class, she discovers that life has thrown her the strangest curved ball ever. Because while Urabe can be a lonely antisocial who sleeps on her desk, carries a pair of scissors in her panties and breaks out in sudden fits of insane laughter, there is something about her that Tsubaki just can't quite put his finger on.

Until he accidentally puts his finger on it, and suddenly the phrase “sharing a spit with a girl” takes on a whole new meaning! Before she can wipe her drool off her face, Tsubaki is mysteriously addicted to Urabe, which is not as strange as the fact that she not only thinks this is normal, but already seems to have plans for her new drooling boyfriend.

Anime Naze no Kanojo, Hellsing and Sora no Otoshimono

Comments: This is one of the best on this list, I do not recommend it to anyone, as the story can be a little banal and meaningless. However, the story has an aspect of Sci-fi that brings intrigue that leads to a point of mystery. This point is a slightly different, fun and youthful novel. I think if our lives go by like this anime would be exciting, watch and see how good it is!


Synopsis: The plot takes place in England in 1999, which, threatened by supernatural creatures, is protected by the Royal Order of Protestant Knights, the Hellsing Organization. Founded and commanded by the Hellsing family more than 100 years ago, the secret organization specializes in fighting dark beings.

Led by Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing, among its subordinates are butler and ex-combatant Walter C. Donez, newcomer Ceras Victoria and the powerful vampire Alucard. In this scenario, a conflict between the Hellsing Protestants and the Catholics of Section XIII of the Vatican, is added to the rebirth of an old enemy, the Millennium group, responsible for the artificial creation of vampires that propagate throughout the United Kingdom.

Millennium was an organization, made up of several SS officers (Schutzstaffel), the elite of Nazi troops. It was intended for research involving vampires, so that they could be used in battles for Nazi Germany in World War II.

Comments: You will never see Vampire more badass than Allucard. For being an older anime, deaths and blood without limits are very expressive. The story is always set in gloomy environments, surrounded by smoke and slums, as well as crimes such as rape and robbery.

It is the type of story for those who do not seek a limit on censorship or for those who do not want to waste time with half-hearted stories. I highly recommend it, as well as my friends before creating this list!

Sora no Otoshimono

Synopsis: Sakurai Tomoki, a young man whose motto is "Peace and quiet is the best", has had the same strange dream since he was a little boy with a girl who always asks for help, but he can never remember her face after waking up. Eishirou Sugata, a veteran of his school, believes that the dream is of the "New World".

Sugata invites Tomoki to analyze an anomaly, which according to him, is the New World. This anomaly would pass over their city at midnight, and it is Tomoki's chance to discover the meaning of his dream. While waiting for his friends, Sugata and Sohara, his childhood friend, under the cherry trees, the anomaly in the sky appears, and an unknown being fell from the sky, that being is the angel Ikaros.

Comments: This is one of my favorite anime. Yes, I'm a fan of ecchi! But this is still a serious list, so don't think I'm putting my interests ahead!

Sora no Otoshimono is an anime very busy and balanced as the emotions to be passed. It is a romantic comedy and always presents this aspect as focus, the perfect combination is formed between this comedy and ecchi. O ecchi it is not heavy, it only incites perverted things, you will not see breasts flying or physics being altered in an absurd way.

Besides having mysteries and a little Sci-fi, nothing too complex. The characters are very pleasant, fun and each one has strong emotions. Another thing is the silly side of Ikaros, as for love and things in life, that side is fun and makes us think a little about our own lives.

Another thing that makes me very amazed with Sora in Otoshimono is the emotions of the characters and the emotions passed on to the reader / viewer. They are mostly very sad moments, but it is good to see the bonds and values of friendships passed by the anime.

I could not help commenting on the art of Suu Minazuki, the author and mangaka responsible for this work and also the author of Plunderer. A very beautiful and unique art, all his manga have their authentic features and modeled by him. I highly recommend it, friends!


Synopsis: The story revolves around a student, Furuya Chihiro, who is obsessed with zombies even his dream is to kiss a zombie girl. A set of unexpected circumstances made Chihiro meet a beautiful and elegant girl named Rhea Sanka.

Together they try to revive a cat that died in an accident. Shortly afterwards Chihiro learns that Rhea wants to get rid of all her deadly responsibilities and become a zombie.

Comments: It is an intriguing story, difficult to define. It can be considered a very light Sfi-ci, it also contains romance and comedy. The beginning is very boring and still, but the story develops in a very good way, it is worth checking if you like something more drawn to the side of Slice of Life, but make no mistake, it is an anime to be very well observed .
