The Top Ten

1 Gintama Gintama Gin Tama, also styled as Gintama, is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi and serialized, beginning on December 8, 2003, in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump.

Well, the manga is good but the anime is waaay better. - Undistinguished

2 Akame Ga Kill Akame Ga Kill Akame ga Kill! (アカメが斬る!, Akame ga Kiru! is a manga published in Gangan Joker authored by Takahiro and Tashiro Tetsuya. It received an anime adaptation that premiered on July 6, 2014 and ended on December 14, 2014.

If Tatsumi and Chelsea were a good couple in the series, then this manga won't be so lame and pathetic. But it's still lame and pathetic due its poor popularity due to lack of taste, money and also development.

The anime is better than its manga counterpart. Even if it's sad.

Manga is too dark than the Anime so, the anime is better, even if it's had some sad scenes.

Way way better, indeed! - NaruHinaBlaze1
