Would you watch a Dark Souls anime?
Only if it's a romance SoL around the Four Knights of Gwyn, specifically Artorias and Ciaran.
Replace the cast with lolis and you've got a deal!
Shit, that sounds fucking great. Ciaran trying to get Artorias's attention, Artorias too busy riding Sif and sparring with Ornstein and going on about the Abyss.
AOTS material right there.
No, no fucking dense MCs.
Fuck dense MCs.
I want knightly love.
I've actually thought about this a lot,
Heres what I've come up with that I thought would be pretty cool.
MC is quiet strong type.Episodes follow a formula like Casshern Sins or Cowboy Bebop following the adventures of MC.Eventually MC runs into 2 or 3 characters here and there that help string a long a story. Art style would be that of Casshern Sins meets Gurren Lagann (if that makes sense). It would only be about 13-16 episodes.It would have many characters dying
and coming back and invading the MCIt would also need to have a shit ton of atmosphere. The series would also be re watchable and every time you do re watch stuff makes more and more sense. MC also befriends another person ala Coop in the game and of course he diesIt would also need to be dark of course so many characters are sad and have tragic backstories of loss,rape and going hollow. And at the end everything is pointless and MC [spoilers] goes full hollow Meaning everything was for nothing.
Can't Knightly Love come after an episode of denseness? Knights don't wait for shit, but Artorias seems like a one-track mind kind of guy. Ciaran can beat the sense into him, and then we can have Knight Romance and fun.
I just want a happy ending for them. God please.
Well, there is Berserk that is based on Demon's Souls.
Not my fluffy tail goddess though? Right?
I'll admit to not being very knowledgeable about the Lovecraft world, but from what little I understand, either world ending cataclysms happen frequently (so everyone dies, not a big deal), or only a few are absolutely mind-fucked by the happenings (meaning it's unlikely I'll be involved). Seems to me Dark Souls and Berserk contain a much higher risk of suffering.
RATS CAN"T YOU HEAR THEM CRAWLING INSIDE INSIDE THE WALLS!!!!!
That's called a Influence you shit, Berserk is mostly Grit and Darkness compared to Guin and the Author of Berserk admitted it was a big influence on his work.
Dark Souls tries to guise items and bosses as creatures from Berserk and other things.
Anon, you're a fantastic person and your idea is as fantastic as you are. I particularly like the part of your idea where the MC isn't the chosen undead that links or doesn't link the flame. The MC is just another of the Undead that have failed their pilgrimage and went full hollow.
Berserk is nothing like Dark Souls, aside from imagery. Berserk is a bunch of warriors traveling the land and bonding while fighting for gold & Glory. Dark Souls is a lone warrior wandering in the dark with no clear purpose, getting attacked by everything he sees. Sometimes he is joined by a single companion. Dark Souls is
not the true beauty that is Quelana
Priscilla is cute though
The story in DaS is bare bones at best, but the fun part is piecing together the lore by reading item descriptions and what little dialogue you get. DaS 2 is bad, don't play it.
