Anime Poll Reveals Series Fans Want Next Adaptations


There are only a few days left until the launch of Anime Japan, and the big spring event promises to share a lot of industry information. As Spring Yard prepares to launch, all eyes are on 2022 to see what new series are on the horizon. Of course, that also means plenty of pros are polling fans to see which series should be adapted next, and Anime Japan has just revealed the top picks in its vote.

The reveal was streamed live on social networks a few days before Anime Japan. This is where the event announced to fans that a random poll had been conducted among attendees and attendees. They’ve all been asked which manga or light novel needs an anime ASAP, and the results can be found below:

  • Senpai wa Otokonoko by Pom
  • who made me a princess – Spoon and Plutus
  • The Daily Life of Nito and Tazuka -Toshio Sato
  • Magu-chan: God of Destruction –Kei Kamiki
  • Oshi no Ko – Aka Akasaka and Tokoyari Mengo
  • Solo Leveling – DUBU, Chugong, h-goon
  • Cherry magic! Thirty years of virginity can make you a wizard? ! -Yu Toyota
  • The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really Love You – Rikito Nakamura and Yukiko Nozawa
  • Windbreak – Satoru Nii
  • Kaiju #8 –Naoya Matsumoto

The most voted choice is none other than Senpai wa Otokonoko, and his win shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. The coming-of-age series tackles themes involving sexuality and gender with surprising complexity. After all, the manga follows a young man who feels better about dressing like a woman. Makoto Hanaoka ends up befriending Saki Aoi, a bisexual classmate who falls in love with the boy believing he is a girl. And as their feelings for each other blossom, a love triangle forms when Makoto’s childhood friend Ryuji Taiga reappears.

As for the other picks, they’re all top reads and include everything from Korean manhwa to shonen brawlers and monster crushers. Only time will tell if these hot series get their own anime adaptations. But given the size of the medium, it’s safe to say that these choices are catered for by studios in Japan.

What do you think of this great list of series? Do you think any of these series will soon be adapted…? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB.
