    ...i was thinking about the same thing recently. a lot of the ones not based on manga are good.
    i would try to say tsukihime, fate stay night, bible black, and air... but they are technically based on something, game.
    and there are those that are from novels like haruhi.

    i believe darker than black isn't based on a manga either. at least the wiki page doesn't mention a manga :dunno:

    Nope. GITS was originally a manga way before the first movie aired.

    There are some made from novels, like Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu, some from eroges, some that are adapted straight into anime form although those seem least common..

    I think youre not understanding the question. He is asking if there are any anime's that aren't based on other material but are original concepts of the anime companies.
