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
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.
>oh no another fantasy reeincarnation cartoon
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.

Metro 2033 in 2 cours. Made by Made Madhouse
Sorry, it's been a while since i last played STALKER, i've been stuck with Spec Ops: The Line and getting my humanity back after finishing it
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.
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.
Will do anon, been seeking new movies to watch after Apocalypse Now and im in need of material for a book im writing
26 episode series by sunrise that ends without proper conclusion,it never gets anything else

Metal gear solid

Final Fantasy XII
38 Episodes by IG or Bones

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.
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.
Pshychodelic slice-of-life adventures of Dave and HAL as spirits in the Space Odyssey novels, leading up to grand reveals about the Monoliths and the universe. By Gainax of course. Music by Brian Eno and Hans Zimmer.
Still waiting for that Dark Souls OVA by Mad House.
An I am Legend anime movie could be really interesting, or shit. I'd like to see that though.
How about Nechronica?
Hyperion as a 13 episode series and The Fall of Hyperion as a 2 part movie by madhouse
SoL Christmas Cake doing Sub Things Das Boot when?
