What books would you like to see made into an anime?

I'd love to see Shinichiro Watanabe's interpretation of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. Or maybe Anno could do an anime based on Haruki Murakami's A Wild Sheep Chase.

million hentai
animated loli hentai is fairly uncommon actually, you have all these hardcore loli stuff in comics but animation studios get really nervous
almost every adaption of loli ive seen aged up the girls . and i cant think of a single animated loli hentai with the production values of boku no pico

They are nowhere near as grimdark as you seem to think, they are literary "cute Alice adventures that make fun of logic, mathematics and the not very intelligent sarcastic MC featuring lots of different characters".

There are two incest pairing, one at the beginning of the book between cousins and the other at the end between brothers. The thing is the brothers didn't know they were related until later, they only thought they were like brothers and not actual brothers.

Adam King

I'm pretty sure I read about that when I first got into the series in 2007. And it's not dark-and-gritty suspense, so GoT's success isn't really a factor.

Aiden Taylor

Yeah, that's thing.
Complaining about Alice being too cute when Lewis had a cute loli in mind when writing it is a bit off.
Alice being cute should be a completely necessary in any adaptation.

Also, they got into the business in the first place because they were NEETs after the war ended and though it would be really cool. A Baccano! or Joker Game type anime would be perfect for them.

Juan Barnes

OP here. I meant to also ask who you'd like to see at the helm of the project.

It would have to be someone cheap or it won't be made. That's because the american authors are quite spoiled in terms of intellectual property fees and royalties on merchandise sales. It's too expensive to use existing USA authors' works. Instead, the studio can simply tweak the several gimmick ideas out of the book and use it in within "original" work by the studio and thus not have to pay any royalties.

Using the usa author name on promotions probably wouldn't help sales in japan, so there's no need to buy the IP in the first place.

The Dragon Never Sleeps by Glen Cook could be a good anime movie. But since the production committees don't assume enough people buy videos anymore to generate a good profit, shows have to sell merchandise.

Mars trilogy is without a doubt the greatest fictional account of terraforming ever written. It's very, very hard and realistic sci-fi, but without sacrificing great story and characters. The author goes into great details about not only the terraforming process but the real life characteristics of the planet. The later books are mostly about the colonization of the planet and the sociological impacts on humanity, but loads of crazy shit happens and it's never boring. It's a super fun read made even better if you're into Mars as a planet.

understanding is fleeting, but shame is forever

Depise that it got turned into a kid show, wmt managed to blend the theme of tragedy and abuse of human right with a happier ending. I think it was enjoyable, it covered most of the major parts of the books.

I don't even care if we get Yuki Kaji screaming all of Darrow's lines, I want a Golden Son anime.

Why don't we get American middle grade books made into crappy anime anymore? I want my Wayside School.

Can't nip kids handle death? Extra arc added to the end was shite as well.

Golden Compass was all right, Subtle Knife was slippin', Amber Spyglass was 110% pure unadulterated crap.

No. Pretty common names I guess. It would be awesome if true. You know Favaro's been doing that same jerkwad voice since 2000?

i enjoyed subtle knife i don't really recall amber spyglass

what about seventh tower?
holographic card game gambling
ice-world waifu

Imai is my favourite voice actor but Shallan is definitely a Saori Hayami character.

Jackson Jones

I agree with this.
Felt that Seventh Tower wasn't as good as the Keys to the Kingdom RIP Monday but it wwas fun nevertheless.

Ryder Martinez

This one is even better.

The wizard and glass was really fucking slow and boring but the other books were interesting.
I absolutely hated Wizard and Glass the first time through because I was just waiting for the flashback to end but I liked it a bit more the second time around because it gave us an idea of what Roland's life used to be like. Definitely didn't have to be a whole book though.

Prince of Nothing, directed by Hamasaki
Black Company, directed by Ryosuke Takahashi
Dark Lord of Derkholm, which could actually fit right in in the current "other world but with a twist" environment. Give it to Tomohiko Itou or some other trendy director and it could perform very well. And it's even got Year of the Griffin to serve as the magic academy spin-off and keep the merch sales going.

Diana Wynne Jones really wrote the best anime. Miyazaki actually made Howl's Moving Castle less anime when he adapted it.

I feel like most YA fantasy is pretty anime.

Personally I just want this animated.
It's my favourite of Stephen King's works.

The book sucked, from their impetus for revenge, to the LACK OF FUCKING PROPER NOUNS.

It's one thing for gender rights and identity to have fluidity, but when you can't tell if a character is male or female after they call ALL the characters female THEN switch JUST ONCE to showing someone that was male, it ruins the book, because it leaves the reader unable to identify with any of the characters.

The fucking hack should have used gender-neutral speak instead of calling everyone female. I'd rather have androgynous identifiers then the wrong ones for the people involved, because the author was trying to be "avante gard" (translation: Fucking LAZY)

Carter Clark

This one is currently among the best romance novel in Japan so far. But I dont know how that would work in anime, since romance in novel or Drama is almost opposite from the usual anime romance.

Parker Carter
Parker Carter

I like the source material but holy shit could it benefit from cuts and arrangement.

I actually disagree. Problem, if that's what you want to call, with Malazan is that a lot of books benefit from repeated reading once you're deeper into the storyline and know what's going. First book is notorious for being information overload and packed with at least two books worth of content. It's not even boring mandatory setting building, it's all story that comes into play later on.

Harry Potter would be perfect material for an anime, but it should've been done like 10 years ago.
