Manwha, Korean webtoons, have become so incredibly popular over the last few years that many— such as Tower of God or Sweet Home— have been adapted into anime and K-Drama series. Fantasy manhwa are especially amazing due to the in-depth worlds created by the artist/author of the comics.
Many popular manhwa and webtoons alike are being adapted into various other forms of media and anime seems like the perfect fit for all that are in the fantasy genre as they would really get to do up some of the animation and settings within the stories. Also, many of the plots already feel like they are anime and so having it adapted would just make for a pleasant viewing experience.

5 Bride Of The Water God Takes Readers Into The Fantastical World Of The Gods
Bride of the Water God is a super famous manhwa and actually has a live-action K-Drama adaptation staring Start-Up‘s Nam Joo-Hyuk as Habaek.

In the K-Drama, it is Habaek who travels to Soah’s world, but in the webtoon readers and Soah are taken to the fantastical world of the gods.
This series would be a drama amongst gods as one human bride stands in the middle of it, with romance holding it all together. This anime series could easily be similar to Inuyasha or Kamisama Kiss.
4 Killing Stalking Explores A Dark And Twisted Relationship
Killing Stalking is a BL (boys love) manhwa with a ton of action and violence, but somehow will entice those who may not even be fans of that genre. Killing Stalking is incredibly intense but manages to suck in its audience in the greatest of ways as the two characters struggle against one another.
