The City of Ember is a book i just recently read that i think would make a great anime. Alot of books of both Eastern and Western origin of various periods in time have been adapted into anime over the years, i was wondering if im the only one that enjoys a book, especially fantasy, and thinks it would make a great anime. We've all seen movies based on books we've read, some adaptations were good and some were just terrible. Other books are of the type where remaking them in another media would betray the nature of the story: such as making a movie version of the Catcher and the Rye (I'll protest the day i see a movie studio anounce this). However, the settings and plots of some stories are so intricate that a live action movie would never do the story justice. Assuming people still read books and you voted yes, then please post your book and state why you think it would make a good anime. If you voted no then please post why.

The Dragon Riders of Pern series would make an awesome anime.

i know, i don't think i ever read a book in school i was suppose to cuz i dont like being forced to do something, but i started reading on my own and found books i like. they do exist if you look for them, my favorite is Catcher in the Rye, but i would never want it as an anime. books are always more interesting when you read em on your own

thats cool, i think Red Wall would be great too if not an extreme version of Hamtaro lol I mainly started this thread cuz i heard that Hal's Moving Castle was loosely based on a fantasy book of the same name, oh and sorry DarkZangetsu if i was being preachy, im a bibliophile and book knocks get to me, im just saying to give em a shot

Juuni Kokki is based on a book called 12 kingdoms, I'd say the book is definatly better but the anime is worth checking out.

I've read the city of Ember...It could make a good anime, but it would be difficult because in the book they lived in the dark most of the time...They're are two sequals to that, aren't they? I haven't read the third one yet..I think Redwall could possibly be a good anime If they got the character design right...I couldn't watch it if they were all chibis, but it would be hard to do an anime where the animal weren't chibis..I wonder how it would turn out?

Yea, but I would rather watch The Dragonriders of Pern as an anime than I would RedWall.

i only read the first one, i heard that the third one was a prequel and a fourth is being written now. Yeah im sure the original book is better than an anime in almost any case but itd be nice to see
