Anime that would make a good RPG.

I was talking to my friend last night, and he mentioned that some years ago he played in a Fullmetal Alchemist rpg. That got me thinking, what other anime universes would make interesting rpgs? Like, not playing as the main characters, but creating your own and letting the party loose in that world.

Some ideas I came up with:

Gundam: I'd either do a G Gundam and let everyone design their nation's (ridiculously stereotyped) Gundam and have them go through a tournament; or I'd have them be a squad outfitted with really crummy mobile suits and watch them fight for their lives when an actual Gundam shows up.

Kill la Kill: Give everyone a one or two star uniform representing various clubs, and have them be part of pulling off Satsuki's plan. Or maybe have them be a Nudist Beach squad. Either way, if I could find a system that could handle over-the-top action like that, I might actually run this one.

Nanana's Buried Treasure: The party would be a new faction looking for the treasures on the island. This would be cool because they'd get to bump into and interact with all the main characters. It would give the party a focus goal (get as many of the treasures as they can. Or just find one specific one) plus, the GM could go crazy designing dungeons puzzle rooms.


So, what do you think? What shows would make good rpg settings? And why?

Hunter X Hunter :P. Just think of how amazing that game would be. It would be like dragon quest meets final fantasy :D.

it has a fully developed world, each country has its own separate culture. Strange animals and fauna. Everything an rpg needs

SAO and GGO would be obvious choices.

Maybe Gurren Lagann though.

I've seen an Apocalypse World hack based on Attack on Titan. Never got around to actually playing it though.

No Game No Life would be a great MMORPG for people to choose there own race they want to be.

Fate Zero could be a great RPG with the different classes you choice to fight in Holy Grail War.

Blue Exorcist (Hack and Slash wouldn't be bad or maybe something along the lines of what they did with onepiece unlimited red)
NGNL (Unique system making it more of a strategy game would be nice maybe the storyline could follow where the last episode left off)

I gotta agree with Hunter X Hunter. Maybe you could choose your Nen and everything. Or maybe it could assign it randomly (which would be annoying).

I think Berserk would work really well for an RPG.

Gintama, maybe?
Just for fun?

or maybe Baka to Test?
Using the summoning system as an actual MMORPG where you can form your own classes,
or something like that?

Of course, there's also the Toaru series.
You could play as Touma and fight off magicians and ESPers while discovering the secret of Academy city-
or unlock different characters to play as in alternate story lines?
If it gets to the NT, then maybe it could branch from more than just Academy city to the entire world as the stage?
There's a lot you can do with it, actually...



(there's also some doujin software RPG game for Hayate no Gotoku somewhere...)
