Would you a 1984 anime?
Nigga you know I would.
"Books you want adapted to anime" thread?
Depending on who does it, it could be shit or gold.
In all honesty if it were to be made I'd be a bit wary of it at first because the last anime based on Western stuff I saw was pic related.
Man, I would love to see pretty much anything Asimov being animated.
I'd rather something original and new, to be honest. 1984 has been done so many times already, and the plot wouldn't really keep me interested. How many times do we have to watch someone fall in love and then get broken by the system? Even 1984 copied most of the Plot from Zamyatin, then Brazil adapted it again, and it keeps being remade some way or the other.
Don't get me wrong, I loved the book, but it's just not fresh material anymore.
nyark was an anime showtune like the original hayate series. They were merely playing the lovecraft for laughs, and no one disagrees. I just think its awful that they had to have such a shit MC and have the other characters be so much fun.
>Mappa does it
>Brave New World-style "utopia" contrasting with a Disneyworld backstage-style "dystopia" of the prols
actually escapes his fate and reaffirms his love with the female character before death, rather than being broken
"Pofessional" anime reviewers would probably call it bad for changing the moral.
No 6 or however it was called is basically what people are talking about when they mention fucked up adaptions or inspired series. I can't imagine a series like 1984 working with bishounen and stuff like that. Not to mention that the plot turned out to be shit and was about fucking wasps.
Brave New World sounds more like an anime to me, what with the kids having sex. Japan has that thing with drugs though, so I don't know if it will work.
I'm thinking anything Heinlein would make some great anime. He even wrote a genderbend novel. Now that I think about it, The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress sounds like a decent gundam.
Admittedly it's a rather bigger change than Gankutsuou not making Eugenie an unfaithful lesbian, but that particular plot twist was only in it to titillate and surprise anyone who wasn't on the barricades and was rather pointless.
>Anything other than Bear
That comic does sound a lot like Ethan Frome though, but that's from New England.
>Young man gives up dreams to take care of family farm
>Falls in love with sick mother's nurse
>20 years later hates his old, ugly wife and being stuck on a farm
>The winter is long, sexy young niece comes by
>Have sex when his wife goes to take care of a patient, fall in love
>Decide they have no future and try to commit suicide by crashing a sled into a tree
>Crippled for life, being taken care of by his wife, niece is ugly and crabby now too
Don Quixote needs an anime.
It could even be modernized so that Quixote is an otaku who reads too much manga and talks himself into believing that he's a mecha pilot or a harem MC or a sentai fighter or something.
I'm always up to watch that kind of thing.
Probably, but only because I watch so much anime I only leave enough time for a few manga so I never got around to that one.
Maybe if they don't fuck with the story and characters.
It it really like that? I thought it was just Kamen Rider toku shit.
Shit I never thought of it like that. We had chunnis in media before there was even a word for it. Too bad he wasn't a cute one that liked being bullied.
Sounds kinda close to that model-guy-wants-to-be-super-sentai series a few seasons ago.
There was a lot wrong with number 6 and the wasps were not much of a factor in that.
since when was this acceptable?
Sounds like Gatsby, I have no idea why they liked that shit back then.
Since most anime is aimed at children
Every time we have one of these threads it's always loaded with mainstream, American, 20th Century lit/sci-fi. Don't you faggots ever read anything else? I'd fuckin' love to see a Gulliver's Travels anime, that shit would be dope.
I'd watch the shit out of The Belgariad/Malloreon anime. They even translateed it to japanese, and the cover art is so much better
Secrets of Droon > Magic Treehouse
If you read Magic Treehouse as a kid but not these, you lost out on something. This would be perfect as a long running series.
Kore wa Anarchist Desu ka?
>always loaded with mainstream, American, 20th Century lit/sci-fi.
You think so? Every time I see one of these threads, Russian lit seems to be oddly prevalent.
Too bad Japan would do a terrible job adapting them.
It's not mentioned because we have enough of that shit already. It's called World Masterpiece Theater.
i'd prefer it be more along the lines of catch-22. Because it isn't the things we hate that will be our downfall. Nor the things we love, as Huxley glumly suggested.
We will choke on our own bullshit and minituae instead.
