Twilight? D8 </3 But If I was two /three years younger I'd probably say Twilight & Interview with a Vampire.
Actually, as corny and mainstream as it is, Interview with a Vampire sounds like a good one.

I'd like to see some dramas become animes instead of the opposite way around, too.


Mmm. 8D; Foster's Home for Imaginary friends would be the bomb as an anime. XD

Well, Stephan Erikson's series "Tales of the Malazan Book of the Fallen" would be epic as an anime or just a live action movie even though it would probly be butchered a lot since the books are so long, and it would be rated R for a lot of reasons...a strange thing about the series is there is no real "main character" there are many important characters,probly the most important being Captain Ganoes Paran, and no real good guys as the malazans themselves are also quite evil at times.

The stories are about a fantasy empire(Malaz) and the many wars they go through, there are 10 books in total,although only 7 are out right now,

The first plotline takes place on the continent of Genabackis where armies of the Malazan Empire are battling the native city-states for dominance. An elite Malazan military unit, the Bridgeburners, is the focus for this storyline, although as it proceeds their erstwhile enemies, the Tiste Andii led by Anomander Rake and the mercenaries commanded by Warlord Caladan Brood, also become prominent. The novel Gardens of the Moon depicts an attempt by the Malazans to seize control of the city of Darujhistan.

The second plotline takes place on the subcontinent of Seven Cities and depicts a major native uprising against Malazan rule. This rebellion is known as 'the Whirlwind'. The second novel released in the sequence, Deadhouse Gates, shows the outbreak of this rebellion and focuses on the rebels' relentless pursuit of the main Malazan army as it escorts some 40,000 refugees more than 1,500 miles across the continent. The story of the pursuit, and the event itself, is referred to as the Chain of Dogs.

Memories of Ice, the third novel released in the sequence, continues the unresolved plot threads from Gardens of the Moon by having the now-outlawed Malazan armies uniting with their former enemies to confront a new, mutual threat known as the Pannion Domin.(this was my favourite one so far)

The fourth novel, House of Chains, sees the continuation of this storyline with newly-arrived Malazan reinforcements - the 14th Army - taking the war to the rebels. The 14th's exploits earn them the nickname, 'The Bonehunters'.

The third plotline was introduced with Midnight Tides, the fifth book released in the series. This novel introduces a previously unknown continent where two nations, the united tribes of the Tiste Edur and the Empire of Lether, are engaged in escalating tensions, which culminate in open warfare. The novel takes place contemporaneously with earlier books in the sequence and the events in it are in fact being related in flashback by a character from the fourth volume to one of his comrades

The sixth book, The Bonehunters, sees all three plot strands combined, with the now-reconciled Malazan army from Genabackis arriving in Seven Cities to aid in the final defeat of the rebellion. At the same time, fleets from the newly-proclaimed Letherii Empire are scouring the globe for worthy champions to face their immortal emperor in battle, in the process earning the enmity of elements of the Malazan Empire.

The seventh novel, Reaper's Gale, sees the Malazan 14th Army arriving in Lether to take the battle to the Letherii homeland.

There are also several side books that i never read but sound pretty good.
Ian Cameron Esslemont's novels are labelled as Novels of the Malazan Empire, not as parts of the Malazan Book of the Fallen itself, and deal primarily with the Malazan Empire, its internal politics and characters who only play minor roles in Erikson's novels. His first novel, Night of Knives, details events in Malaz City on the night that the Emperor Kellenvad was assassinated. The second, Return of the Crimson Guard, investigates the fall-out in the Malazan Empire from the devastating losses of the Genabackan, Korelri and Seven Cities campaigns following the events of The Bonehunters. Esslemont's forthcoming third novel, Stonewielder, will explore events on the Korelri continent for the first time in the series and is expected to focus on the often-mention, rarely-seen character of Greymane. Further comments by Esslemont and Erikson have hinted that Esslemont's fourth novel may visit the continent of Assail and the fifth will serve as a closing chapter and coda for the entire fifteen-book series.


Also the book contains many heartbreaking,disturbing and odd scenes as well as an epic and humorous story.(descriptions of books taken from wiki)

The thing i liked the most from this series was that the characters were very well developed and the story really sucked me into it,any fantasy fan should read these.

Heres some fan art

the first picture is of lady envy and the seguleh punitive army,the second is of hedge and fiddler,two of the best bridgeburners.

Harry Potter..Yes I know, theres already an anime something like HP...and I'm referring to "Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu aka Tweeny Witches" but still..HP got its own style from TW, so its worth making it an anime.

I think a Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy series (the book not the very crappy, completely different for the in EVERY WAY, movie) would be awsome for anime series. I mean in part of the book one of the character's jump's out a window because things are going TO right and in another he opens a rocket proof window with a credit card. I mean that screams anime.

If Twilight became an anime, I wonder if it'll become a battle between Vampire Knight and Twilight?
On the other hand though, I sort of think those who read Twilight and then see the anime would be upset of the anime.
It's almost always that the original work is best.

I completely agree with you!! The Hitchhiker's Guide is an amazingly hilarious book!! And yeah, the movie sucks. I love the bit with Fenchurch. "Were you born in the third left ticket office of the Fenchurch train station??" "No, I was conceived there." "In the the third left–" "No, the ticket cue." mean, doesn't get much better than that!! ^_^

I think Eragon could be good since I could totally see it is as an anime.... lets just hope that they do a better job than the movie if they make an anime out of it
