I was gonna include AoT, but I forgot. And, I'm pretty sure Higurashi has been adapted completely. There are two main segments: Question Arc, which is covered by season 1, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, and Answer arc, which is covered by season 2, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai.


Hmm, okay o.O There are so many different Higurashi manga series, I thought for sure some of them weren't adopted. I only read two, the one where Rena was the culprit, and the one with Mion. I assume there are stories where each of the remaining girls are culprits, right? If Mion and Rena would both help Keiichi in these stories I would be pretty happy ^^ I liked the progression between the first and the second stories too, in the way Keiichi acted and in how the story developed. Too bad I ran out of translated manga >.> Gonna read Umineko now.

Soul Eater:
Episode 38<=>Chapter 37/38/39
Episode Count: 51
Chapter Count: 113
Recommended to read from Chapter 33

There are 113 chapters, and I have to start with chapter 33?... Feels like I haven't seen most of the story o.O For some reason I assumed the difference between the anime and manga was in the ending only, guess I was wrong.

No, you are talking about sub-arcs. See, the Question arc and the Answer arc have 4 sub-arcs each, 8 in total, and some character goes insane in each of these. And, there's an over-arching plot.
Oh, you mean Umineko no Naku Koro ni, which is like Higurashi's cousin of sorts, right?

Well, it's the same thing that happened with the 2003 FMA series. Soul Eater was monthly, it began in 2003. The anime began in 2008. I guess when the anime started adapting one chapter every week, the manga was probably not ahead by a lot, so, they picked an arc as a final one in the anime, and then they made their own ending. Common things between Soul Eater and FMA: Same studio, Bones, and both of them are monthly.
By the way, the anime does adapt chapters 33-38, but not very faithfully. So, if you continue from like 38 or 39, manga readers say you won't understand it. That's why I suggested it as the recommended chapter to pick up.

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

So each anime season covers 4 different stories, did I get it right? And I only read 2 o.o Sounds awesome, didn't realize there was so much material there.

Yep, Umineko no Naku Koro ni. As I understand, it has different characters and setting. I was also told it is pretty bad xD

I see. I realized that the last arc in Soul Eater is made up, but never imagined there was so much manga that was not adopted. I'll look for it then, maybe I'll be able to buy the volumes, it should be popular enough to appear in stores.

Ignore the fact that two seasons exist. 8 arcs in total. Each cover various stories, yes, but their interconnectivity increases as each arc gets over or to be more specific
Spoiler :
each time the timeline gets reset.
Whoa, then why are you going to read it, lol. But, it has the same premise, right?

I mean, that's always a problem with monthly manga. They adapt 1.5-2 chapters an episode, and before you know it, the anime is caught up to the manga. SnK was delayed partly because of that. Though, the thing is, people are saying the manga is in its penultimate or final arc. FMA had to be remade. This one suffered. Erased had a rushed 2nd half in the anime. 

I imagine so. Hope you find it.

I really like how that sounds =) Even as it is, I liked the pacing and character interactions in the first two arcs, but with more interconnections it would probably get even more enjoyable. I wonder if we get to see Rika's brother too, the one that disappeared before Keiichi's time.

Why not xD Each series is just a few volumes, and at least I'll be able to form my own opinion. You haven't seen it, right? So far I have no idea if there are any similarities between Higurashi and Umineko, but I only skimmed over half a chapter.

SnK is monthly too? Didn't know that, no wonder the adaptations are that slow. I think the original FMA turned out really well, with the ending and all. I am told that Brotherhood is even better, but I have to wonder how they are going to top the ending in the original season o.O

Spoiler :
Yes, they do, actually.

I see. Well, I may as well start reading a light novel. I'm currently reading the Fate/Stay Night Visual Novel, or to be more precise, the Fate route alone, since people say the 2006 Fate/Stay Night anime adapted this route and it didn't really do it well. But, I'm gonna watch the anime adaptations of Unlimited Blade Works route, and the future movie trilogy that adapts the Heaven's Feel route.

Yes. It is. A lot of series I didn't know were monthly were. Soul Eater was one. Parasyte. Erased.
Not saying that the ending was bad or good, since I didn't really watch it, but, since the manga was still popular, they adapted the manga more faithfully again. FMAB is not perfect. It adapts about 20-25 chapters in 9-10 episodes. And, not standard weekly chapters, 40-45 page monthly chapters. Though, I understand why they did that. FMA was still popular and they didn't want to repeat things again and extend it to 15-20 episodes. I always the first 10 episodes felt kinda rushed, but knowing all these made sense to me in retrospect.

Didn't know Fate/Stay has different routs o.o That is interesting, haven't read such a story yet, I don't think. How do you like it so far?

I see. So FMA:B has a slightly rushed start, so it gets to the new material at a faster pace. Sounds fine. It is still long and intimidating though : D

I'm only at the beginning part, actually. The story hasn't diverged, yet.

Still, it's 64 episodes of pure greatness.

I think it would be a good idea, to make this a sticky thread madara.
What do you think?
People would want to know about manga information for popular anime

This thread is already under 'important threads', right? And, when I scroll down, 'stick thread' is checked. I'm not sure, can you do the needful?
