Completed Action Manga That Deserve to Have an Anime Adaptation

, , 1 comment
I like to discover a few good reads every now and then because I don’t always have the precious time to watch anime. An anime episode could last until 25 minutes, but reading a manga’s chapter would only take 5 minutes.

Today, I would like to share with everyone the completed action manga that I have finished reading. And I think that they deserve to have an anime adaptation.



This is authored by Mori Kouji. An action manga which is everything about street martial arts. Holyland encompasses the typical story of a weakling getting strong. This “typical” plot line never stops to amaze me because I like to see the progress of a weakling character.

The main hero of the story is Kamishiro Yuu, a high school kid. He seems to be the guy that everyone could bully. However, he has a very special talent. He could execute or copy boxing moves that he had only read in a book. Until he had delved into the life of the streets, where everybody competes as king. This weakling now becomes the famed, "Thug Hunter."

Anyways, Holyland has already been adapted to Japanese and Korean drama series. BTW, I prefer watching Holyland's Japanese version coz I love Japan and it's much closer to the story of the manga. Though Holyland's Korean version has that "oomph" and "sexiness" in it, for me, Japan's is more realistic.



Bloody Monday is authored by Ryuumon Ryou, and it has 3 seasons. I like season one the best. This is the manga which is responsible for making me dream of being a hacker. But I guess that dream is still too farfetched.

Yes, my dear readers. Bloody Monday is all about hacking and terrorists. Wouldn’t you believe that a genius high school kid named Takagi Fujimaru saved the whole world from Russian terrorists with his hacking skills? When I discovered this manga, I couldn’t wait to turn pages.

There is also a Japanese live-action for this one.




Authored by Sakaguchi Iku, Change 123 is an action-ecchi manga. Don’t worry; the amount of nudity isn’t something serious. You’d be engrossed with the story of a nerdy-nerdy young girl named Motoko Gettou who has developed three personalities. Motoko developed multiple personalities because she was trained by her three adoptive fathers who each have their own martial arts expertise.

Just wait and see Motoko transform into her different personalities. You’ll be awed with the way they fight. And lastly, I really adore fighting beauties.



This manga is authored by Tabata Yoshiaki. Let me warn you. This manga has violent graphics, and of course, nudity. The story of the manga revolves around the forbidden love of a beautiful teacher named Aoshika, and her student, Akira.

So, where’s the action? Akira is a student who transforms into a wolf. Yeah, like Jacob of Twilight. One of Akira's classmates is a leader of a prominent gang, and he wants to beat Akira through foul means. This wannabe “strongest man of all” abducted Akira’s love interest, Ms. Aoshika, and has set several traps to kill him. 

This manga is just too intense. There is action, blood, rape and violence. And the story of it lures me in.



Kurogane of Ikezawa Haruto is about a very smart student named Kurogane Hiroto. He’s top in academics, but he doesn’t excel in sports. Another “from a weakling to a hero” story. He has a remarkable talent though. He has a phenomenal eyesight that could see every tiniest bit of detail.

A ghost named Tojo Sayuri appeared to him one night. Sayuri attacked Kurogane using kendo. But Kurogane evaded the attack with the help of his eyesight. Sayuri then trains Kurogane to become her successor of the kendo style called Sakura sword style.


I’m sure that these manga would be great having anime series. You would definitely feel the action. Do you have anything in mind that deserve to have an anime adaptation, too?

  1. Thanks for showing your opinion. I agree with you that Holyland should definitely get an anime adaptation. The "weak to strong" theme seems to be a popular one in most shounen anime, although I think Holyland is more seinen than anything. However I feel as if the anime will either be condensed or diverge from the storyline, since each chapter is so dense.

    I also won't mind a Bloody Monday adaptation; in fact I'm really hoping for one! I love any anime with a decent "hacking" plot.
