I think this would be good. It would be unbelievably edgy and no one on /a/ would like it though.

There is a RotTK anime, actually, the 1991 dated one. The animation and censorship are horribad, but everything else is great, especially the last 10 episodes.

An anime version of Death of a Salesman would be interesting.

Consider Phlebas and pretty much any other Iain M Banks sci fi novel would pretty much only be doable in the form of animation.

If they did A Fire Upon the Deep, they'd have to change Pham to a Japanese, or at least Chinese.

Japanese were able to accept Yang Wenli, but the Vietnamese prince of a planet named Canberra might be a stretch for them

Just finished reading tje part about the critics, /a/ would call it deepshit and cry about NTR. Also, what the fuck is up with Archimboldi?

Moby Dick would be a good anime.

As long as they exaggerated the IshmaelxQueequeg and AhabxStarbuck relationships, it would be fujoshit anime of the year.

Movies are impossible, you'll need maybe 30 of them to cover it, and this book doesn't fit into brainless blockbuster category, but at the same time needs a huge budget to depict war. Anime would be perfect.

Hyperion I didnt enjoy much but wanted to finish it, then when the shrike was killed by magic I dropped that shit completely.
And no, I dont care if it was "but she's the mother of God because she fucked a machine" bullshit. It was fucking magic. You do not bring magic into scifi, esecially at the end. I can only suspend disbelief for so much. Fuck magic.
