If You Could Turn A TV Show Into An Anime Which Ones Would You Choose?

Are there any live action television shows out there that you would like to see an anime version of?

If I could choose two, it would be Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad. I would say Game of Thrones, but there is already a ton of anime with the mystical medieval setting.

But, I think an anime surrounding a biker gang would be good. Really, there aren't enough animes out there surrounding gang activity at all from an anti-hero perspective. Whenever a gang shows up, such as the Yakuza, they are usually just fodder and no-named thugs for a hero to shoot or slash their way though. Or, it's a comedy anime where they are a bumbling group of cronies who really aren't thugs or criminals at all. I'd like to see more anime covering gang warfare and activity from the inside and in a serious manner.

How about you? What TV shows would you pick and why?

I haven't watched TV in years.

Dexter might be pretty cool from what I've heard of it.

Let's see, a few medieval themed animes I can think of right now are Ragnarok, The Tower of Aegis, Guin Saga, Berserk, Tears to Tiara, Claymore, Record of Lodoss War, Maoyu, Dragon Age, Louie The Rune Soldier, Deltora Quest and The Sacred Blacksmith. There's a bunch of them out there.

Oh. That stuff.

I thought I was missing some dark fantasies on par with A Song of Ice and Fire besides Berserk.

dude you took most of them right out of my mouth XD

I would probably have to say ones that are not listed here would be hmm.. tough call but i think Castle would be good in anime, infact their the type of show that would make fun of them selves for being an anime. The Neighbors. I can't think of any more that would be a successful anime if you tried to turn into one

Nope. Not a lot of dark medieval anime out there. There needs to be more extreme anime coming out. Alot of it has become too light and fluffy.

Doctor Who, i know most will be screaming at me for this but they could do it with the 8th doctor before the time war. There's even an awesome fan anime out there. youtube still had it up last time i checked and was 12 mins long. Beautiful detail to the daleks & cybermen! Also fantastic version of conversion/upgrade.

24. Real time based anime with Sunderland! : )


Seriously, it would be cool to see how they'd pull it off.

Hmm quite a few I would like to see as an Anime version, even if it was just an OVA to test how it would look. Most have already been said though so I wont go repeating them, might throw in some cop dramas or whatever, like NCIS or something like that.

Sadly I doubt many, if any, would really work. You definitely probably couldn't do a pure carbon copy of say NCIS and make it work as an Anime, but do a similar concept, well then it turns into pretty much Death Note without the supernatural part.

Oh wow. I forgot to add Law & Order up there.
Thanks for having the same thought as me.
