Right now, Phantasy Star would be nice. The Phantasy Star Online 2 anime is such a joke that it just makes me want a real Phantasy Star anime. They don't even have to retell any of the previous stories, just set it in the Phantasy Star lore and make it not suck.

Dragon Age:Origins for sure!


Nope. They were allowed to touch DA once. It was a bad touch.

Anime doesn't seem to do well adapting western IPs. Its a JRPG world adapting a CRPG.

Agree on the Xenogears, PS1, 2, and 4, Parasite Eve and suikodens.

A couple that haven't been mentioned:

Persona 2 (P4 was done well, heard P3 is good, 2 has a strong story)

Skies of Arcadia - would just be fun

Ring of Red - alternate universe post WW2 Japan with the north and south divided and petrol powered mechs.

Mega Man Legends

- Life is Strange


Life Is Strange and the Dreamfall series would be cheapened (espeically LIS) as a series however I'm down for Drakengard and Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria,. However Caim wouldn't be able to talk may make him a horrible character for anime.
it would be interesting to see Caim's fall from grace but would they handle the incest relationship any better than the game did which wasn't very well. It's orginally called Drag On Dragoon btw

This^

I consider it to be the last of the golden age of the Tales of series. I'd like all the mother ship titles to get adaptations, but Vesperia and Phantasia in particular.

The customization of the games would definitely be noticed when converted to anime when it comes to LiS but I think the core story would still be there with all of its emotional impact. For Dreamfall, the first and second game wouldn't lose too much because they aren't as customizable as the Chapters is. Basically I would want it because each of these series has something they bring to the table (gay relationship treated like a relationship and not fan service, strong or determined female leads (not secondary but actual primary lead), and deal with multi-worlds). Not to mention handling dark subjects in a non-edge manner.

Well it could just have what the game does in letting Angelus speak for him. As for the incest aspect, I think the game did fine in heavily alluding to it without outright diving into it. And I know its original name but I actually prefer the "Drakengard' name myself xD

When they the Drakengard manga it was horrible and the incest was handled horrible.
LiS would be still be bad because they would have to make Max and Chloe gay or not and either way you choose your going to make someone mad for me I want them to be together but not everyone wnats that and if they locked into a dtermined choice at the end that wuld make even more people annnoyed,
The thing about Drakengard is the people who originally made would not be evolved because the creator himself has said he doesn't even remember it that well and never wrote his charcters to anything more than hateable, Furiae was made purely to never have a good ending. She was also turned into a more depraved insane version of early Farnese from Berserk. Seriously though taking away Caim's voice in anime would just suck it sucked in game it'll suck out of game.
I'm also tired of seeing Furiae treated like absolute trash in every version of Drakengard.

Lukcily I doub't we'll see DONTNOD make LiS into any type of show and thats how I prefer it


Also for Dreamfall series I just don't see it going well without alot being cut out for time constraints alone.

It's been a decade after the release of the last game, but "Shadow Hearts" would be awesome. A horror/fantasy series set during an alternate late 19th/early 20th century Earth, I think it was a vastly overlooked series. Play Station Magazine even gave the second game a 10/10 and called it better than "Final Fantasy X".

The entire Final Fantasy XI main Storylines (Rank missions, Zilart, Promathia, Aht Urghan, Wings of the Goddess, Adoulin, and Rhapsodies)

this would be great! the Zilart and Promathia stories, especially. Promathia is one of my favorite stories in JRPGs.

other than this... a PROPER adaptation of Star Ocean 2 that includes the final chapter instead of cutting it short before the friggin' ending would be great. Star Ocean 3 would be another great choice.

the Ar Tonelico trilogy, Atelier Iris, Mana Khemia would be a great fit, with Japan's fixation on high school settings. Golden Sun done right would be amazing. someone mentioned Shadow Hearts before.. Shadow Hearts 1 and 2 would be amazing.

You mean a manga series tied into the original Drakengard game or the one for 3? I've seen a few chapters of the latter but none of the prior.

I'd honestly want it to be with them together because to me most of the game builds them up that way, and honestly anytime you have same-sex relationships you're inevitably going to end up with those disgruntled by it. Most of the people I've seen do put them together and the divisive point is more over 'how dare you sacrifice a whole town'.

No shock on the Furiae never having a good ending cause ingame she literally has no good end xD Maybe its because I loved Angelus's VA but I never minded the mute Caim xD

I think your last sentence in your spoiler is the reason I'd want it brought over to anime, because anime could use more of it. I've read manga in that genre that while being somewhere in the vein never got to the same level as LiS did. That game emotionally tore me apart.

I'd just settle for a Dreamfall series that fell in the dream world, though it'd take some adjusting since there's not much in the way of antagonist there.

The Drakengard manga shows aprequel to Caim and Furiae prior too the first game.
Furaei is madly lusting after Caim and goes literally insane and tries to put her parents bodies back together after they are ripped apart and says itrs ok if she is raped because if she can't have Caim anyone will do.
Furiae was literally created to give no good ending stated by the director he made her to end the opposite of a happy ending.
Loves her brother but can't have him ends badly everytime for her.
Though I still suspect Caim harbored feeling for her.However he was too revenged fueled to think of much else but I'm not quite sure because he didn't shed a tear on any of her deaths but did when Angelus was sealed away.
The only thing I liked about his silence is when he was insane in Game 2 it made him more menacing.

Yeah, I'd say if they were to go with it to stick with the game's storyline or to come up with their own that fit with the game, cause that manga seems pretty bad.

I definitely prefer the way the game framed Furiae, I mean sure there is no good ending but at least her mental condition isn't degraded to what that manga version did o.O I liked the emphasis his muteness put on his body language, gave Angelus plenty of dialogue since she was speaking for him, and took guts to actually have his voice be the price of his pact (though considering the idea of 'silent protagonist' maybe not as much as I give credit for xD). I never really considered Caim to be 'insane' in the second game, driven or obsessed but not really insane xD
