You can adapt one Western work of fiction into an anime. What do you pick?
Book of the New Sun - oh, wait it was already made into an anime.
Japan likes time loop so much, why don't they adapt this?
Already a thing.
this could work so well, i want it damn it
No I mean an actual adaptation of Groundhog Day. I never implied they never made any time loop stuff. Japan's time loop usually depressing like Higurashi and Madoka. Groundhog Day would be different as it has a more lighthearted approach on a time loop story.
Well except the part where Bill Murray kills himself repeatedly.
Adventure Time could work, provided they don't bring up the "story" of it.
And this is coming from someone who likes the story and how it relatively wrapped up
Too bad that Keanu will never do the sequel.
Adventure Time, it would perfectly fit the SoL with slow pacing we all love here, all it would need is a good artist to work the anime character designs and then swim in money.
Just watch the cartoon show from 2011.
Granted, it's more about...
I know, but it was popular in the west.
Leon or Matilda the Professional
Actually, I just want comfy /k/ anime. Like Jormungand but better story
>Well except the part where Bill Murray kills himself repeatedly.
The suicides were the funniest parts of the movie, bro. He just snaps and nonchalantly kills himself over and over in amusing ways. The only one which they tried to make dramatic was the jumper one.
Warhammer 40k. It would ruin the franchise as a whole but I'm just so goddamn curious.
I think it's more so the idea of an anime of warhammer 40k. I actually think it would fit pretty well as an anime if done correctly, but it would bring in so many people that are different from the existing community that it would end up hurting the player base as a whole.
Ultimates would make a pretty good episodic series.
>Decent cast that plays well off one another
>About two major events (Bruce hulking out on Manhattan, Chitauri invasion)
>Ultimates 2 gives room for a second cour
I could see that going over well in Japan.
>it would bring in so many people that are different from the existing community that it would end up hurting the player base as a whole.
Basically like normalfag cancer on 4chan?
>whisked to another world
>nobody likes protag in real life
>is useless most of the time
>his rapebaby summons him later to trick him into sex
>dumb morals thrown in for a shit ending
Pretty much anime already
Already happened, just wish it was better.
This sounds kind of stupid but Louis Sachar's Wayside School novels except in a Japanese High School setting and in the style of Wakabayashi Toshiya's heart-warming romances. I'd love the idea of a Nichijou/School Rumble-esque anime where all of the characters are wacky and memorable in their own way.
That or Animorphs, fuck it.
A Song Of Ice And Fire. Seriously every chapter felt like I was reading the novelization of an anime and the show is shit.
But a loli who's walking down the street gets sucked into a strange world and is brought before the king, OF THE RUBY THRONE!
Only to drag Elric back to earth where he goes to anime high school and develops a harem of lolis
Who would the protagonist be? Daenerys burns people if she is pissed off, Arya goes on murderous witch hunts, Sansa has no soul, Tyrion is an ugly dwarf rapist and book!Jon is nothing like GoT!Jon.
I admit though loli Dany making love with Khal Drogo and adult Dany fucking Daario, Lannister twincest and Jon fucking Ygritte would be legendary.
Vampire: The Masquerade.
They can center it around Kuei-jin if they want.
Moorcock himself wrote it for Blue Oyster Cult. It's basically the official song of the Elric Saga. He also wrote my favourite Blue Oyster Cult song of all.
Elric AKA The White Wolf
- Emperor of Melnibone and politically powerful
- Sickly albino of Elven descen who maintains himself with a cocktail of drugs and herbs
- Weilder of the 'Black Blade' Stormbringer to which he is bound. It also enhances his strength and prowess at the expense of his own life or the souls of the slain
- Powerful mage and utilised summons against his foes
- He's a literal aspect of the comic champion
Geralt The White Wolf/Gwynbleidd
- Low born bastard of a sorceress and a warrior
- White hair and pale skin as a result of extra mutations post-Trial of the Grasses. He's mutated on a higher level to other Witchers
- Uses standard Steel and Silver Witchers swords. Whilst ingame you can find legendary blades, in the novels they were just swords
- Master of basic signs, which real mages and sorcerers in universe actually laugh at
- He's a Witcher, a good one and he displayed some extra tolerance to the mutations, but he's not super hero and can get his ass kicked
John Carter of Mars.
Because the Japs would be about the only ones who would have the balls to depict Dejah Thoris as she's describe in the novels: a naked, red loli.
>And the sight which met my eyes was that of a slender, girlish figure, similar in every detail to the earthly women of my past life... Her face was oval and beautiful in the extreme, her every feature was finely chiseled and exquisite, her eyes large and lustrous and her head surmounted by a mass of coal black, waving hair, caught loosely into a strange yet becoming coiffure. Her skin was of a light reddish copper color, against which the crimson glow of her cheeks and the ruby of her beautifully molded lips shone with a strangely enhancing effect.
>She was as destitute of clothes as the green Martians who accompanied her; indeed, save for her highly wrought ornaments she was entirely naked, nor could any apparel have enhanced the beauty of her perfect and symmetrical figure.
The first game could make a neat series. Not sure about everything after it though.
A boy falls in love with a girl.
Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.
But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.
Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

Yeah you're right the witcher really sucks when you put that way, sure it's not technically "plagiarism" but I don't think takes even the slightest stretch of the imagination to see how the witcher really ripped elric off
I guess this technically counts as a western work, huh?
Keit-ai is already a webcomic. Stop posting it. http://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/keit-ai/list?title_no=36825

Meme magic is amazing.
I'd watch the ever loving shit out of moe blobs being forced to kill each other/get killed in... wait a second...
Anime is about the only medium that could properly capture the nigh-constant effeminate nature of the Gethans.
Viper would be the perfect one episode villain
Starcraft. I'd eat the shit out of full length carbot hijinks.
I would love to see Diablo II adapted somehow. I don't know how well it would work but I want to believe. I'd love for it to use the original soundtrack as well.
If you haven't yet you should check out Kekkai Sensen. The author was a big fan of Hellboy and took a lot of inspiration from it.
>Not wanting the Mignola style
There is no way in this language or any other that can describe your awful taste. You, sir sicken me.
I can understand that, I suppose.
Hellboy is a Gothic horror adventure series. It's supposed to be dark and covered in shadows. He's exploring haunted houses, sewers and other spooky shit. What kind of lighting do you think this shit needs and what comics are you reading that are covered in shadows because most are pretty damn bright
>wanting hellboy without the art
I'm surprised that no one has tried. Jap artists all suck Mignola's dick hard
If anybody else remembers this series, you'll know its a fucking perfect anime already.
>I keep getting Discworld mixed up with Cool World
>187 replies and no one has said the Silmarillion
C'mon now. This was made to be adapted as an animated miniseries.
Daisy best gril
Don't hate on Peter Jackson for the hobbit films. He came on at last minuite after Del torro ditched the project and the studio demanded that he stretch this out to a 3 part film.
He really deserves better given the shit that he had to work with
>Hackson killed any chance of ever seeing Gondolin on the screen
Late 80's early 90's spiderman.
No carnage, no clone wars, no multiple retarded versions of spiderman running around, no lame ass green goblin, and no gwen stacy.
Just him his on again off again girlfriend MJ his superhero squeeze Black Cat, the occasional visit to Aunt May and a lot of random super powered guest stars and crazy as fuck action against over the top powerful super villlians.
>And I don't see people complaining about it.
Please,LoTRfags have been complaining about Jackson since he decided to skip Tom Bombadil in Fellowship.
Wheel of Time.
A RWBY anime would actually be pretty neat, just have someone else do the writing and directing
>wanting to sit through 400 episodes of braid-tugging and Elaine having tea with Egwene
Usagi deserves something more than the occasional ninja turtle cameo
Depends how much into high fantasy you actually. First 3 are good enough to suck you in but midway through it gets really dull until about the 9th book then you're back to stuff happening.
Black Cat in that slinky little number and MJ in various stages of undress.
Both trying to pull him towards one part of his life or the other. The super hero spiderman, and the normal but happy Peter Parker.
Then Brock Venom shows up.
Nonono, your proposal is so boring and quite one-sided, why would anyone agree to it? If it turns out bad you would just walk away and disavow the whole work.
Let us spice it up a bit and make a real deal. You pick one of your favorite anniemay works and it has to be faithfully adapted by hollywood. If it succeeds it will be adapted by your favorite studio with a lavish budget. But should the hollywood adaption fail so will your favorite studio. Bankrupt. Kaputt. Oh and they will have taken some of that, what do you call it? Nitflicks gold? It will become known as the most horrible adaption of the work you choose.
Harsh? That's business, kid. An equivalent exchange of goods if you will. Everyone and their mom knows that.
Animal Man v01
I don't know how you get her being a loli from that. Hell, in Gods of Mars she's described as becoming even more beautiful and womanly in the 10yrs they were apart.
Okay but it still had lame-ass Hob-goblin, Betty joining a cult storyline and Chameleon trying to kill himself after confessing his love to Spider-Man.
I miss space anime godzilla hercules
I never understood that, I like Tom Bombadil as much as the next guy, but theres no way your going to keep a single person in the audience during all that shit, especially not with the tone that the rest of the movie has.
would kill to see this as anime
I would love her
more than I do already
>Okay but it still had lame-ass Hob-goblin, Betty joining a cult storyline and Chameleon trying to kill himself after confessing his love to Spider-Man.
Yeah, but all of that trash can be ignored.
This is before every other person had a fucking symbiote, carnage just made it all shit, the clone debacle, bringing back gwen stacy for fuck knows what reason, selling off his marriage and unborn daughter, and the mess with morlun. The list goes on.
Spiderman was in my opinion at his peak during the late 80's early 90's. It's super iconic.
They can only sell the highschool kid with girl trouble and the thing with the green goblin for so long before everyone and their mother gets fucking sick of it.
Best Peter from an animated series
Best voice actor
reminder that weebs are hacks!!!!111!
omit the videogame part
Instead of western toons they could use established anime characters working in the industry.
Maybe some yakuza drama about corruption and exploitation in the anime filming industry.
look I was a kid in the 90s too, but no.
that shitty one-off with james vega doesn't count
Something Wicked This Way Comes as a 12 episode series. I think Japan would probably do a better adaption than Disney did in the 80s, and certainly better than Hollywood would do nowadays.
What's to get. It's a well written adaptation of franchise that manages to capture a lot of the classic Lee Ditko era charm and adapt it for a modern era. It's the purest form of spiderman to exist in animation.
/co/ hates Ultimate. And they should. Spectacular is the best written and executed spiderman show to ever exist.
Use of Weapons as anime? Fucking sign me up. Not his best Culture novel (that would be Surface Detail) but the one that would work best as anime.
Against a Dark Background would be awesome too.
>Lets adapt one of the few decent real vampire young adult series out there
>Decides to cast a fat cartoon character to play one of the best characters in the series
FUCK. I just. Why? WHY?
Drew Carey is the literal worse. Every fucking time he tells a joke.
>*Does some weird little half hop where he makes sure the camera is on him*
>Lame sarcastic witticism
And adding 5 minute dance numbers to a 20 minute show just tells me you can't write a full episode.
Why hasn't this been done yet?
A Star Wars anime from the Empire's point of view would be amazing.
It's full of filler and many scenes have a "repeat" feel to them as if you had read a variation of them in an earlier book in that same series. On of Jordan's problems was that he liked to go over the pages and pad them with lots of adjectives and adverbs. It's reminiscent of the Thomas Covenant series of books.
The author was ill somewhere in the series, so he had ghost writing help. He finally died, so the last few books were written wholly by others.
why is this idea so perfect?
They would probably make it about Bud and his school livethough, also having fat anime woman could is pretty rare, so i don't know how this would work.
But Kelly, Bud and Marcy already have an according anime trope.
Spectacular Spider-man is amazing.
Young Justice is showrunned by the same guy, they even hired Josh Keaton (Spider-man) to voice spider-themed villain.
But Young Justice suffers from certain problems such as fucking annoying main cast of brats for good while of first season. Robin is insufferable prankster, "HELLO MEGAN", all girls are Stacies who want to ride Connor, Connor's one characteristic is that he is fucking angry. But they all went through character developments and became much less so next season. What wasn't fixed is fucking over-complicated keikaku, literally everytime main characters destroy absolutely everything villains have built, out of nowhere shows up Lex Luthor, twirls his mustache and says "all according to keikaku". And you never see his grand fucking masterplan, what the fuck is he even doing. That said, I think season 2 is actually decent and will watch season 3.
Even ShepardxKaidan/Ashley is better
>Watch Darker than Black S2 and Requiem for a Phantom.
Are you seriously recommended me those two for Leon?
Holy shit, anon.
DtB S2 is not as bad like everyone said but not good either, I'm not mad, but Phantom is like one of the worse series I ever seen, it was so bad I regret watched it. Even Canaan is better.
>hating on Talimancing
Look at this fucking plebeian.
That Keikau bullshit was the worst. I get the villain needs to be scheming and cunning to come out on top but unlike say Xanatos who would show how his defeats didn't matter in real tangible ways the assholes there basically just said NUH UH DIDN'T COUNT and that was the end of the episode. Entire facilitates get wiped out and it's treated like some Machiavellian victory
I remember reading that shit from a local library a good few years back before I started browsing /a/, it was pretty great. I remember reading the demonata books too, but I remember sweet fuck-all about them aside from vague details.
There's this Japanese cover art for Blood of Elves.
You're both wrong and you absolutely know it. It still needs to happen.
But maybe with mechas.
>Asuka: Misato, I didn't get to be the best
>Shinji: That fucking sucks, Asuka. Did the guy at SEELE tell you'd get to be the best
>Asuka: Fucking A he did, Shinji-baka
>Shinji: See, Asuka asked about validation. I asked about parental affect. They guy told me my dad would be all fucking proud of me. What'd you ask about, Toji? Toji probably saw that T.V. commecial, the one with the knight that fucks up the angel then turns into an EVE.
>Shinji: fucking EVA commecial man. That got so many fucking kids. Now look at us: Asuka is clearly the worst. I'm even further from my dad's love than two months ago and Toji is out here rolling around Tokyo 3 jobbing angels in a plugsuit that smells like four days of piss and LCL.
>Asuka: shut up, shinji-baka
I know Transformers is kinda half Japanese, but I would kill for a Trigger Transformers anime.
Japan seems to love shit like SAO and Overlord, so they'd probably dig Caine.
>tfw no Trigger adaption of the 1st season MTMTE comics
>tfw Whirl will never voiced by
We're actually this far into one of these threads, and nobody has posted Skulduggery Pleasant yet?
I mean,. The series was great for the first 3/4 books, it got kinda shit for a while when Valkyrie turned into a complete bitchy mary sue, but it got better again as it started coming to an end.
Plus, an anime could fix some of the dumb issues like that.
Worm would make an awesome anime
Harry Potter with a female tsundere Draco
I just want more collaborative anthology series projects like Batman: Gotham Knight. It's the perfect platform for something like cape comics since you're had like 100+ writers and 100+ interpretations. So you can have your edgy grim dark cape for the Snyder fans (probably directed by Urobutcher) all the way to the fun, parody ala Adam West era/ Lego Batman.
Gotham Knight absolutely nailed it. Too bad, the Marvel collaboration ended up being generic action animu.
Also, even though I don't read ant-man, I'm seriously considering hunting down the variant issue just to get that sweet Hayashida Q cover.
You know you want it
You need to be beat up for wanting one of the dullest franchises in the history of movie franchises animated. Seriously each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.
Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody, just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.
>a-at least the books were good though
The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."
I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.
You do realize that the whole of point of Kill Bill is that it's basically a western remake/ take of a bunch of old Japanese and Chinese media right? Just pick some jidai geki anime with revenge and that's it. So it's not about 'want it' but that it's 'done'.
>And it's not really shit, no western fantasy is better.
This actually upsets me, so I take it you're baiting.
Fucking faggot manchild, go make Trump=Voldemort comparisons on Twatter
A high school hijinx anime with cute girls but it's actually a sneaky retelling of the Old Testament full of allegories.

Conan the Barbarian
The franchise is dormant, and anime could get away with the casual ecchi elements and violence in a way live-action can't. Plus Conan is a big but really fast guy so that's easier to capture in animation than with actors.
>Plus Conan is a big but really fast guy so that's easier to capture in animation than with actors.
Thank you anon, I hate this modern idea that based Conan is a slow and dumb brute
HPMoRand would love to see an anime adaption.
The whole "barbarian" thing kind of eclipses his other talents in most people's eyes; ignoring the fact he was a brilliant tactician, commander and thief in particular.
As for me,
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Actually it's probably a terrible idea because I don't want it to be sullied by the human filth that watch and create anime
Wake up, we're here. Why are you shaking?
Or pic related.
This is a close as you're going to get.
Would be pretty cool to see original story based on TES world, though. Nips love Bethesda games.
After making that post I instantly thought of a bunch so yeah I feel pretty retarded.
It's not too common, though, is it? At least when compared to adaptations of Japanese/Chinese stuff.
