Manga purists have let their voices be heard in regards to the anime that have failed to live up to the quality of their manga equivalents, resulting in several well-known franchises being called out (if not solely out of spite).

The ranking:

1. Dragon Ball


2. Terra Formars


3. Fullmetal Alchemist


4. Great Teacher Onizuka


5. Aku no Hana


6. Thermae Romae


7. Kiseijuu


8. Ping-Pong Club


9. Soul Hunter


10. Neuro: Supernatural Detective

    Fullmetal Alchemist did well, they just had to come up with their own original ending while the manga was still running. For that, they did a good job and tried to tie it back into things and hints from the manga. Brotherhood was better all around, but FMA's original adaptation wasn't bad.

    Original was fine except that the Roze incident was too much for people to stomach. Even the author came out denouncing that part.

    not all anime's will approve to aired outside japan, like for instance in some particular country that enlist of anime titles was already banned in one country, guess where?

    In retrospect, the first FMA anime doesn't hold a candle to the manga/Brotherhood, but for an anime-original plot, I still think it was pretty decent. I like that it had a fair bit of time to work on its story rather than rush to a conclusion in its last couple episodes like a lot of anime that follow the accurately manga at first. If I had to cite one of its major problems, it's that it tried to make everything a bit too dark and serious compared to the manga (hell, an early filler episode tributed Lupin III and was mostly comedic, but even it manages to have a somewhat downer ending by bringing up how the city's slowly sinking into the sea, an obvious parallel to Venice but still.... also, if I said "episode 35", you'd all know what I'm talking about, right?). However, I still don't think that was enough to make it bad, not even qualifying for a top 100 list of worst adaptations, let alone scoring third place here of all things.

    Though, I probably shouldn't expect much from a list that actually put fucking Dragon Ball in first (which, unless you're counting the bad pacing/fillers, GT and, to a far lesser extent, Super, had some rather minor changes from the manga at most).

    Ironically, the author was the one who wanted the anime to have an original ending.

    I disliked the old series a lot. I liked Brotherhood a lot. If you ask me, I'd have to say the old one was bad indeed. I'm happy they made Brotherhood.

    I agree they followed the claymore manga until episode 16...
    problem was the manga was so slow coming that they caught up...Claymore needs a revival and since the manga has finished it would be a great anime if followed to the end...

    The Claymore is one of my favorite manga. Teresa is a hot mommy. I don't know if any of us will be around to see the ending of Berserk.

    WHERE THE FUCK IS NEGIMA!? That bastardization nearly killed by fandom on anime and manga! It's the main reason why I have NEVER liked SHAFT after that travesty.

    Negima!? never claimed to be adaptation, it's alternative story and it isn't bad. First anime, on the other hand, is a terrible attempt on adaptation.

    You brain must be set to assbackwards mode. While the first anime wasn't very good it at least did follow the manga story to ta point. Negima!? was said by SHAFT to be their own adaptation. Which turned out to be the worst shitty adaptation ever.

    Well the ending of first series was completely original while some changes were made in some arcs in the earlier episodes. the Negima with the ? on it though has its own manga and is somewhat faithful to it albeit with some changes of its own too

    This has to be number one in terms of distance between the spirit of creator's work and the anime that was produced, save maybe Kaibutsu Ojou.

    My lover looked at this old blog of this one chick I talked to in Japan who had that manga in her room. She got really mad because she liked some of the stuff I did.

    In the end she holds the keys, a winner is you sweetheart! Let's go get our hair done tomorrow!

    "tfw everyone will remember R+V as a smarmy harem love comedy, and not the gorgeous shounen battle epic Ikeda actually made"

    To be fair, it is quite a fanservicey series with a large cast of female characters. I agree with everything you said, though.

    Those are some really shitty choices...

    Instead of putting Berserk or Negima on the top, we see people geting disapointed wether the power level is over 8 or 9 thousents and how many fingers has Picolo in each arm.

    I don't consider bad fillers as a criteria for a bad adaptation if they are skippable.

    Criteria for a bad adaptation are: Censorship, missing plot twists, ignoring the source material to do their own thing rather than improve it, having poor animation, or having a bad director who can't distinguish what works for an anime and what doesn't.

    Well, I guess not many people actually watched the first Negima anime. Or that equally terrible reboot. Or that comedy(?) show. And thank god for that, I wouldn't put my worst enemies through that shit. It's really impressive how often they tried to adapt this amazing manga and failed. Then they finally succeeded in the OVAs. How? They just animated the fucking manga. That's how it should have been in the first place, you idiots.

    The first Negima anime had a different ending. The reboot comedy with the ? in its name has its own manga that already ended. The ? series was sorta faithful to its own manga to a degree anyway.

    Your pretty much spot on. just look at tokyo ghoul for example, the first season kinda was praised for sticking so close but took out some gore but the 2nd season was beyond a joke.

    If you think Dragon Ball Z wasn't a bad adaptation, then you probably already forgot how long it takes for a Sayian to transform into a Super Sayian.

    Hint: almost 1 complete episode.

    Calling BS to almost all of these. Only Aku no Hana should be on this list.

    The anime to various versions of DB, GTO, FMA(first not Bro), Thermae Romae, Terra, Kiseijuu, Soul Hunter, Neuro were still pretty good due to pretty good orginal source material.

    Ping pong the anime or the manga sucked as unfunny funny awesome shit. With the manga being the unfanny funnier better awesome shit.

    Definitely agree with respect to GTO, Thermae Romae, and Neuro. Doesn't matter how they stack up relative to the source material; they don't deserve to be on a "worst-of" list.

    Aku no Hana would probably be higher if it qualified as anime and not lazy-ass rotoscoping.
