Silent Hill (the plot of the games), for some reason, really remind me of Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni.

Hmmm how will you draw straightjacket,PH,and some other bosses o.o and the only person with anime eyes would be Alessa unless a guy who looks a lot like Keiichi from Higurashi is in it.

if done right ... what's really your base criteria of a good horror, mystery anime? wud it involve romance, comedy, ecchi?

for me if they're gonna make a silent hill anime, might as well be like this:

story: either its similar to ghost hunt, higurashi, monster, or elfen lied, can also be the original from the games
artwork: maybe like elfen lied, jigoku shoujo, death note, or basilisk
main characters: a deep but not too vague, characters' pasts should not be too deep and can be shady at start, as long as it can progress with the story. maybe do a kira or an L for a main character (haven't really seen death note, but from reading wikipedia's article about it, i think its pretty well done)
support characters: can be based on higurashi's(very dark secrets) or ghost hunt's(comical but professional)
background: would be nice if the same as the game, but it can be like ghost hunt, death note, or monster
music: elfen lied's a bit mellow but tragic, also ghost hunt is pretty on par with its OP and ED music(no voice). and like I said, I haven't seen death note, but pretty sure some of the fans would also appreciate it to have it. still, it has to have the roots of the original, its not recycling the old sounds but keeping the heart of the series is important
voice actors: please, don't do cute voices on an adult. like adult goku with a childish high tone shout when doing a super kamehameha. do it like black lagoon.
graphics: DO GORE! nothing is much more appropriate than bowels hanging on a ceiling UNCENSORED!

overall: american version of a japanese-made product still has its major problems (anyone can agree with that from naruto to resident evil). but doing a japanese anime by japanese animators(with the original producers too) but using highly-advanced(i think...) american equipment would be cool.

Everyone who said the movie was good fails, the movie was a horrible representation of Silent Hill. It tried to adapt the first game, but made so many unnecessary changes, subtractions, and additions, the movie became a pitiful empty shell of the game.
Seriously, changing The Order into some cliche Christian cult was just so lame.
Then changing Dahlia from the mastermind behind it and making her into some sympathetic character ruins the whole plot and symbolism of Harry's love for Cheryl contrasting to Dahlia's lack of love for Alessa.
That, and taking Pyramid Head out of his symbolic place in James' head was also annoying.
The reason Silent Hill is so great is because of the deep things in it, that was replaced with more American straight-up horror in the film. It was all horrible.
The movie was good as far as a horror movie goes, but as a Silent Hill title, it was horrible.
Never mention it again.

As for a Silent Hill anime, it COULD be good. If instead of trying to adapt a game like the movie did, they came up with a new story set in Silent Hill.
It would be hard to do, but if done right, it could be awesome.
And I'd rather have a continuous plot as opposed to an episodic plot. 24 minutes isn't enough to capture a Silent Hill experience.
A 13 episode anime series could do just the trick though, if they keep it within the game's rules and canon.

tl;dr
Silent Hill Movie sucked
Silent Hill anime could be good if done right.
Everyone should just go out and play Silent Hill 1-3 anyway.
The games will always be better.


YOU my friend basically said everything I wanted to say .
