ITT: Non-anime series you want to see adapted into an anime series.

Hard mode: Choose the studio and how it'd adapt into an episodic format over 1 or 2 cours.

Ace Combat 5 animated by Satelight please

Red Dead Redemption. Could be a series of hour long OVAs or 3 series, one on Fort Mercer, one on Mexico and the last to do with Dutch/Ending.

Let's get the obvious one out of the way:

Touhou as a slice of life. Include danmaku battles, but don't treat them as anything special. Treat them like a game of rock-paper-scissors. Basically, have the characters use their powers, but don't treat it like anything special.

The entirety of WW2 adapted by Ghibli (back when they were better).
>>
>>143563773
Even I'd be curious as to how they'd handle an Ace Combat anime. Though likely the main character will not be faceless anymore.

Don Quixote.
Except that it is about an Otaku instead of a book knight nerd. He/She goes crazy and lives out a fantasy life in the very normal, very real world.

Bonus points for shots which show the fantasy perspective and the reality being something much worse.

Give it to Yuasa and let him do what he wants with it.

That too, thing is, it would be a post-apoc SoL since STALKER doesn't have an actual story until you go to the military bases and suddenly it's a horror game

>>143568242
>more shit about the most grossly overrated belligerent of the entire war

I'm guessing they'd be more keen on Tiger im Schlamm.

Don't you mean the Agroprom underground?

Das Boot, animated by Madhouse. Each episode would be a different war patrol leading up to the one in the movie, which would be a two-episode arc.

Another idea would be the Leviathan Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld, but focusing on a much less idealistic take on the story.
>>
>>143573796
Never watched Das Boot but i heard it's bretty popular in germany
>>
>>143574430
It's a great movie. It's pretty long, so people with short attention spans tend to not like it, but even with how long it is, I would still recommend it to anyone. Go out and rent a copy if you can.

It's also probably one of the best movies when it comes to capturing what war actually feels like.

I wonder if a proper anime series could actually be made of this - keeping even one book to 2-cour would be a major challenge.
Of course, if it were, I would want to see Sunrise Studio 2 (or if they somehow magically reformed, Studio 5) would have to do the series.
>>
>>143575469
That book was fantastic, but I think it feels too Western for an anime adaptation.

except for the spaceship filled with homosexuals. that would be right up japan's alley

Ace Combat 4 would be a pretty neat adaptation if it was from Yellow Squadron's perspective.

The idea of a tragic story of good men going to war from the viewpoint of the loser seems fun.
