* No other manga series has the distinction of [[AvertedTrope averting]] this trope the way ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure JoJo's Bizarre Adventure]]'' has. Published in 1987, it was one of the longest running manga series without a TV anime adaptation, that is, until 2012. Keep in mind that other manga series typically gain their anime adaptations in about 1-5 years or so, all while the manga/anime gap for ''[=JoJo=]'' is ''25 years''! The advantage of waiting so long means that [[FillerArc Filler Arcs]] won't be an issue for quite some time and Creator/DavidProduction can make great use of {{Foreshadowing}}, making nods to things and events in past Parts that canonically debuted in future Parts. It also helps that there's a 2 year gap between the first airing of each season[[note]]Parts 3 and 4 in their entirety from the manga are each considered their own seasons in the anime. However, Parts 1 and 2 together are considered a single season[[/note]], so even though Creator/HirohikoAraki is publishing ''Jojo'' monthly, the team at David won't outpace him any time soon.

* The ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' anime was adapted early on due to its popularity, and finished airing five years before the manga ended. As a result, it only covers about a third of the manga's story (barely seven books' worth of material). The final episodes are about an arc from the beginning of volume 6 that was shifted back for narrative purposes Kyo's inner struggle with his true form, and Tohru learning to accept him for who he is. To be fair though, another reason ''Fruits Basket'' only had 26 episodes if because Creator/NatsukiTakaya broke her drawing hand while working on the eighth book, leading to her taking a break from it. If the anime had gone past 26 episodes, then it's likely that it would've overtaken the manga.

* The anime version of ''Manga/ZatchBell'' ran at the same time as the manga version it was based on. Unfortunately, Makoto Raiku, the author of the manga, broke his hand, forcing the manga version to go on hiatus while the author's hand healed enough to allow him to draw again. The anime overtook the manga as a result, so the anime diverged from the manga for its final episodes. Some aspects of the anime made it into the manga once Raiku resumed drawing, the most notable being [[spoiler:Zeon's ultimate spell and the location of the final battle between Sherry and Gash]].

Another option could easily be to just [[{{Padding}} pad the episodes out]] and [[InactionSequence slow the story down]]. This was common in the ''Manga/DragonBall'' series, which unfortunately [[LostInTranslation meant that many people thought the manga was exactly the same]] or that [[MisBlamed Akira Toriyama's writing was at fault, when in reality the pace of the anime was out of his hands]].

Unfortunately, unpopular or unwelcome [[FillerArc filler arcs]] and episodes may often be {{MisBlamed}} as being the fault of the original creators, when in reality said creators almost always have nothing to do with said filler plot. Some fillers that were better received by fans are often cited as being opportunities to develop lesser characters (this helps a lot with anime that have a cast size near [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters the size of the production staff]]).

* A sequel to the original ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'' (a.k.a. ''Nemesis'') was made for the {{MSX}} titled ''Gradius 2'' (a.k.a. ''Nemesis II'') before the actual arcade sequel, ''Gradius II'' (a.k.a. ''Vulcan Venture''), was even made.

* The popularity of ''Manga/BlackButler'' caused it to be adapted way too soon and the anime wound up going in a totally different direction than the manga. Only 9 of the 24 episodes from the first two seasons were adapted directly from the manga; however, a new season in 2014 was based on the manga once again.

* The [[Anime/FullMetalAlchemist 2003 anime adaptation]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' went into an AlternateContinuity from its very early episodes, although the changes were fairly subtle in the beginning. This is because the creators [[PragmaticAdaptation knew in advance that it would overtake the manga]], as did the manga's creator, who explicitly asked them to take this route. Averted with the second series, ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'', which revealed it was sticking with the manga ending the final episode was aired about two weeks after the final manga chapter was released.

* When ''ComicBook/TheMaxx'' was adapted by MTV, they did a very faithful job, despite having to replace some of the [[ComicBook/SavageDragon character cameos]]. However, given the book's typical ImageComics production schedule, the cartoon had to invent its own ending, '''well''' before the comic got there.
