Wow, a great topic that I haven't known wasn't done yet. Good job.

In a brief notes on this transfer of genres (I might get into a longer one later), genre hopping can be tricky. I saw the anime of Disgaea last year and thought it was good, a bit rushed and could be better, but it did keep some of the plot from the game in it. Other fav video games to anime include the Street Fighter V series, the Street Fighter Animated Movie (a nice addition to the Anniversary Edition for the PS2), the KOF shorts Just Another Day, Some of the Fatal Fury Movies(very underrated), Jojo's Bizarre Adventure(again a tough find and underrated), and somewhat OK with Xenosaga's anime. The newest Ryussei no Rockman is good too (Mega Man) as a stand alone from the series.

But like the video game to genre area there are flops too, like Tekken's movie, Street Fighter Alpha (I know a friend that crushed his , Samurai Showdown (was just too short and not drawn out-it's out there), and Final Fantasy Unlimited (please stop saying I have picked this bullet just for you!).

For the other way around it's of course hit and miss depending if it's a cash grab game rushed to stores or well thought out to integrate the anime and gaming experience together. Off the top of my head the best games are some of the Naruto fighting games (very Smash Bros.-like), some of the overseas imports of things like Super Robot Wars and the occasional sim for animes like Love Hina, fan games like the Comic Party fighter or Melty Blood, the Bleach games have potential, RPGs like the Tales series and of course you also have the games that use anime styles too that could be animes someday if chosen (so would love Rival Schools/Project Justice, Guilty Gear, a full Chrono Trigger or Chrono Cross series for example).

OK, maybe not so short a reply. Got some off my mind so see you!
