    Most of Stephen Kings books would be good. I was just thinking Insomnia or Rose Madder would be good also.

    -The Dune Series
    -The Mistborn Series
    -The Oz Chronicles (I know it's already been animated a couple times. I still think an anime rendition could be cool)
    -The Tempest
    -The Divine Comedy
    -Starship Troopers would fit right in with the Gundam genre
    -The Black Company books
    -The Runelords books
    -The Hitchhiker's Guide series

    I would love to see Shane Steven's book "By Reason of Insanity" made into an anime. It's an awesome book and would probably make an awesome anime too.

    The Night Circus would like to see it as Manga or Anime as long as they fix the plot & by fix I mean they'll have to put one in! :idea: :bigsmile:

    Please stop referring to books with abbreviations! everybody doesn't know what they mean leading them to look up the initials and read many other meanings before they find what book twot stands for:

    Total Waste Of Time
    a female pussy
    & is also short for The Wheel of Time books

    I can think of nine books I have by R.A. Salvatore that would make brilliant anime: The Dark Elf, Icewind Dale, and Legacy of the Drow trilogies.

    I would say books like "Sailor Moon", "Harry potter" and "We were there" will make good anime.

    I think the dark tower would be the best bet. Since all of his works are linked to it you could pull material from anything he's written and no one would bat an eye. Besides, it's been a while since I encountered a world/universe-hopping anime of any quality.
