The Malazan book of the fallen. There's no way something that long would happen in theaters, andI can't imagine a live action show lasting ten seasons or getting the needed budget. Thus, anime would be the thing most likely to do the series justice if somestudio lost its mind and took the gamble.

With my luck, though, Rake would get forced into a more prominent role beyond just the books he's in because he'd turn into the resident broody bishonen.

doesn't have to specifically be anime, just animated. the series is way too big to be done well as live action unless it had a GoT type budget and even then there's too much actual magic that would require lots of CGI.

but with animation all that wouldn't matter, 24 episode seasons could easily summarise each book, if not more, there is a ton of filler and dicking around that could be chopped out and cut down.

Those novels that take place in a super futuristic society where scarcity doesn't exist; I forget what they're called, but that would make a great anime.
