Could a Dark Souls anime work?
>>
>>121421967
Other than the order of the bosses after Anor Londo I don't see it being impossible

But the main character not having dialogue might be something to work out.
>>
I'd watch it. The game has so little story to it yet enough lore to make a 3 season anime.
>>
You mean Berserk?
>>
I'd buy that.
>>
>>121421967

> It's going to be about a character traveling and discovering new items
>There will be a narrator reading the flavor text

Sure
>>
>>121421967
Game itself no, prequel yes.
>>
>>121422100
>Jouji Nakata reading items descriptions: The Animation
>Guest starring Sho Hayami as extra male voice and Miyuki Sawashiro as the female voice
>>
Only if they make Lordran less desolate, and bigger.
>>
>>121421967
The only way I could see it work would be some sort of 'Animatrix' style presentation. Different characters, areas, bosses, and lore covered in various shorts. Keep the dialogue brief and focus on subtext and subtle story-telling techniques.

Mugihito should voice Nito

>>121422014
what is the blond supposed to be?
>>
>>121421967
Yeah I could see it working. Not sure how covenants would work out, but it has potential for being explored.
Made me want to return to DaS2.

Lord's Blade Ciaran
Have you not played the DLC? It had the best bosses

>>121421967
>50% of episode is dude killing undeads, bosses and dying
>Some NPC talks about the place, items descriptions, etc.
>Important NPCs (Firekeeper from Anol Londo, Dusk) talk about the place as flashbacks.
>Make Sif fight very sad

You mean, "All Need You Is Kill" anime?
>>
>>121422763

>>121421967
Does the MC die at every commercial break and ending credits?
because I would watch that.
>>
If it was me, I'd have it focus on one of the previous undead who tried to fulfill the chosen prophecy and failed. The game certainly implies you are not the first.
>>
It would probably be medieval Casshern Sins.

And Casshern Sins was already depressing enough.
>>
No. The focal character has no personality, the side characters don't have enough impact on the 'plot', and the plot itself is just boring monster-of-the-week format.

No one would be stupid enough to release an anime where 75% of the time there's no dialog happening, and you fags would hate what they'd have to do to it to make it marketable.

so no, it wouldn't work.

There would have to be a number of stipulations.
1: Chosen Undead should be as impartial as possible so as to act more as a means of keeping the plot moving forward rather than a character. This means he can never speak outside of maybe grunts and anguished moans, he can't remove his helmet, or if he does his head can't be visible, and he can't join any covenant.
2: The topic of covenants will be explored in great detail by the various side characters aligned to them. Solaire with Sunlight, Anor Londo Firekeeper with Blades of the Darkmoon, Lautrec with Fina's covenant, and so on. We should get to see their backstory and the circumstances of their joining.
3: Need an episode dedicated to Priscilla. A tactful dose of moe is acceptable, just don't go overboard with it.
4: Despite not joining the The Fair Lady's covenant, Solaire isn't going to die in Lost Izalith. He just isn't, that's not happening.
5: A whole grueling episode will be dedicated to the fight with those sons of bitches Ornstien and Smough. Smough dies first.

I know there's more, but that's all I can think of for now.
>>
>>121421967
I'd watch it. Someone fund it.
>>
>>121421967
It will be dark as fuck, and I mean can't see shit dark, +20% darker if Funimation gets it.
>>
>>121421967
it can work. Dark Souls has a lot of lore and potential drama in it. It's just not shown in your face in the game. An anime can work but it will not work as well as the game.

Sure

>>121422014
No dialogue is fine, just because you're the main character doesn't mean you need to be verbose.

>>121422066
>no story
>endless lore
Wut. Those are literally two words for the same thing.

>>121422100
With proper seiyu, I'd watch the shit out of that.

>>121421967
As long as best girl makes an appearance, even if only a cameo like in the game.
>>
As an adaptation of the game (whatever the hell form that could take): no, absolutely not.
As a story in the same universe: maybe, at least that way there's the option of disowning it like that fanfiction.net-tier sequel.
>>
>>121422763

That sequence in Edge of Tomorrow that the Black guy kept calling Cage "Maggot!"(in several timelines) was so gold, man. It reminded of this guy trying to beat O&S but instead of "Maggot!" it was "You died!"

Only if it praises the sun constantly, and there is ample amounts of jolly-cooperation.

NO. It'll be far too depressing. I can already imagine the sad bgm and sad outro credits.

Its funny how edge of tomorrow feels like a video game
