I'm going with Deadpool as long as he gets to fight raping goblins with a certain slayer.

Dune would be quite a high call, even if you only go for the first book but definitely might make an interesting anime.

Surprisingly Deadpool is already in anime. there has been a number of Avengers Anime in japan (which for reasons don't get brought over here) and Deadpool shows up fairly often.

He's been trying to get a date with Captain Marvel

The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath by Lovecraft. It's been done in comic form several times already. It's probably one of the most well-developed books in his universe. Has several chapters or arcs that would make it possible to fill out a typical 12-episode anime. Some of the imagery would only be possible in animated format. And pretty much everybody knows of Lovecraft, even if they're not familiar with his works. Kinda like how everyone knows Star Wars even if they've never seen the movies.

Starship Troopers has been done.
The Belgarion is a good series as is the Ellinium and Talmidi
The Black Cauldron could not be made worse than the Disney version so Anime can only improve it.

Dude did you see what they did the last time anime got a hold of Lovecraft?

Ugh. I would argue those already are anime. >.>

The Belgariad series, by David Eddings, is one I think would work well and an Anime


I could see Belgariad. I remember Eddings having a great sense of humour throughout his character writing.

Oh god, the Cat Who books would fit so perfectly into a slice of life / mystery anime it's not even funny.

There's a riff on this called The Dream Quest of Vellitt Boe by Kij Johnson that would make a good anime, too.

Pretty much anything by either William Gibson or Philip K. Dick. The work they've created would work so much better in animated form than they would/do in western live action.

Star Wars Can be a long running anime series since their universe has so much history and planets
Highlander would be good
Matrix (Animatrix was dope)
Halo
GOD OF WAR!

One thing comes to mind which would be AMAZING and a perfect fit for anime.

Robert E. Feist's Riftwar saga.

I would love to see an anime that's completely true to the Harry Potter books, with no details left out or changed. I loved the movies, but I didn't like some of the things they left out or changed from the books. And if one could get as many of the original actors as possible to voice the characters along with the OST from the movies (and the computer games too, because those songs are also very good) it would be a dream come true.

I would like to see Witchblade redone by another studio and actually remain faithful to the source material.
That being said, I still liked the alternative.
Or maybe even The Darkness adapted.
That being said I can't really make any better suggestions because I'm not too fond of western stuff.
