Sup /a/.

/lit/ here; I'm curious as to whether there were any anime/manga/anime films adapted from or otherwise influenced by pic related's works. To my (admittedly somewhat limited) knowledge of anime and manga, there haven't, which is puzzling to me since Mishima was such a prolific writer and prose stylist (he was a major figure in shaping modern Japanese literature) as well as controversial figure.

Also, for those who are familiar with him and his works, do you think that anime/manga adaptations of his books and plays would do them justice?
>>
I can't answer your question, but I'm sure Mishima himself would have dabbled into manga at some point if he had lived longer.

This was actually interesting. I shall look into it more.

I thought writers are supposed to be docile people, holy shit /lit/ your idols are crazy

Because an adaptation of any of his things wouldn't sell. It'd be amazing, yes, but let's face it, you only make money if you pander to otaku and can merchandise your series into figures otaku can unflinchingly hotglue. Save for Anno, I don't know of any director or animator capable of taking on the task.

Yes he was a fascist madman later in life, but that doesn't change the fact that he wrote some amazing stuff. Confessions Of A Mask, for example. That shit puts oyasumi punpun to shame.

I'd love for more /lit/ things to get adapted.
But that's not how the business rolls.

as awful awful of an idea as it sounds, and the fact that it really can't be adapted from text at all, Infinite Jest. Just to see what nippon would do with it/how they'd react to it. To my knowledge, IJ isn't translated into Japanese (yet), and that's really not surprising.

Come on, at least try to keep with the theme of this thread.

Koji Kumeta's everything.

Everything Kumeta does is like a tragicomic version of Mishima's legacy.

Watch some Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
>>
the sound of waves shows up in sayonara zetsubou sensei. it's embarrassing to admit, but i've read all of mishima's works and it's only because i saw it in an anime.

>>120842941

Not him, but the guy wanted to bring back imperial japan. Calling him a facist ist kinda accurate.

That being said, some believe he intentionally did it so that he could have justification for taking his own life.

No adaptation of Infinite Jest would ever come close to doing it justice, but in the right hands it would at least be interesting.
More realistically, I could see James Incandenza's movies being animated, since some of them could at least be realistically adapted. The Cage III - Free Show immediately came to mind.

Any of Ryu Murakami's works by Madhouse.
Or Accelerando/Glasshouse by Sunrise Studio 8.
