While Manga is undoubtedly the primary source material for Anime, alongside Light Novels and games, of course, Manhwa has increasingly become the go-to source material for the newer generation of comic readers. If you are unfamiliar with the term, Manhwa is the Korean version of Japanese Manga. During the vast majority of Manga, you can read in black and white; with Manhwa, all comics are in full color. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of Manhwa that has received an Anime Adaptation.
