Name one manga and/or novel that you want to be adapted into anime. List reasons, if any, like a scene you'd love to see or something that really draws you towards the material.

For me, I'd love to see O-Parts Hunter get adapted into anime. It was almost a reality but it was met with plenty of roadblocks which are mainly marketing concerns since the original title is Satan 666 and it utilizes a lot of Christian mythology and might impact its popularity negatively.

As for novels, I'd love to see Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 in anime format because..well, just trust me if you've never read the novel, it's worth it.

Horimiya. It had a 3-part OVA, but they could do at least one season on it.

I'd like more of Vampire Hunter D to be animated. Think they've only done two books and there's over 20 of them.

For manga, I'd like a Pluto anime. Astroboy meets film noir.

An animation based on Dune would be awesome.

I'd also love to see Haruki Murakami's work be turned into an anime. My choice of studio would be Shaft! 1Q84 would be among top picks, along with After Dark or Kafka on the Shore. His works would probably be more suited as films rather than series.

As for manga, I would pick the fantasy-epic manhwa Kubera with Bones as the studio, or the female MMA Teppu with Madhouse as the studio. I heard that Madhouse did a splendid job with Hajime no Ippo, though I have not seen it.

Livingstones by shaft

Ubel Blatt by Madhouse(they can give me an original ending since I feel he author will never give me one)

Witch Hunter by bones(they can give me an original ending since I feel he author will never give me one)

And while it will surely never happen

I would like to see Red Sprite get an OVA or anything at all.

It's not originally a manga, but... the Cirque du Freak series by Darren Shan. It got made into a manga, in Japan, in Shonen Sunday, and the manga is really good.

It's such a great series, and it has just all the right elements to make a great anime.



If you haven't read these - the books or the manga - you really should, they're great.
