The Hobbit! There is the cartoon version of it but it really needs a remake - anime style
edit: and Lord of the Rings too. It would be nice to see the battles

Lost Souls by Poppy z. Brite, it would be a more darker anime then ofcourse. ^_^ (And this is a nice opportunity to discover some new interesting books by the way! woohoo!)

In all honesty i can imagine any of michael crichton's books made into anime, drama or movie. most of them would absolutely KICK ASS.
it might not always encompass the mood he wanted his story to be told but anyways its anime-doable

Jurassic Park
- a sort of biomeat nectar(manga) / resident evil type anime about a group of survivors trapped in an island with dinosaurs, it probably would be hard to make it the survival/horror/gory story that its suppose to be but its possible. possibly shift the story around and make it look like gantz. where people are teleported to an island and have to survive as opposed to the little gantz room. have the main characters of jurassic park replace the 3 main character of gantz and voila. first season is them surviving the island, reaching a dock and escapes the island on a giant freighter with a twisted ending.


The Lost world however could be a second season where they unwillingly and unknowingly shipped a giant T-rex with them in the giant freighter and it gets loose(if you're following the movie that would be what'll happen) orrrrr they get teleported back into the island with another objective which would be a search and rescue. ( probably the true objective of what they were suppose to do in the first season but they escaped the island instead)

Andromeda strain-
redo the manga manhole into an anime and voila! theres andromeda strain. throw in some secret military experiment as a backdrop as opposed to mysterious deaths within the city.


state of fear
- an anime version of akumetsu with eco concerns being the motivation for the terrorist to kill off politicians instead of using the economy as an excuse.

next- make a witchblade-type anime where instead of an evil organization looking for the witch blade, its a transgenic monkey that can talk. to interest the public make it a kid's show or transform it into a battle anime and exaggerate their powers to whateeeever you want.

combine eaters of the dead, time frame and possibly prey
- into a tsubasa chronicle-type anime (bear in mind alot of the original text would be REALLY chopped up and whenever they move from one dimension or time travel it'll be mid plot of the books themselves, maybe not time frame but for the other two it'll have to start midplot.

lets see Congo- could probably be like the manga La Mosca, change the plot around, instead of coffee beans, make it diamonds, instead of reptiles make it into man-gorillas.


i can kinda imagine harry potter as an anime- for those that like zero no tsukaima it'll probably be somewhat similar only in the later books, it'll be much much darker.

what else? hm......
i guess the book Sound of Waves could be made into an anime, it'll feel like kiru no imachi (same guy that made suzuka) with a change of setting and make the main character into a fisherman as opposed to a highschool student. also throw in a comedic love-rival.

Dawn of the dead- not sure if theres a book for this one but i can see it exactly like highschool of the dead only anime form. afterall it probably gave inspiration to that manga anyways.

well i guess that it for now, kinda got a few more ideas in mind but i guess it'll over-flood the thread heh

The Deathstalker series by Simon R Green. It is a space-opera/sci-fi story that includes espers, cyborgs, robots, space battles, swordfights, metahumans, monsters, intrigue and romance. Reading it feels like watching anime.

I AGREE!!!!! That was gonna be one of mine =P. I would say Vampire Academy series. (Way better than Twilight =P) The Immortal Instruments series. The Halo series could make an interesting anime I would think
