    Imagine you are eating pizza while you are watching Naruto thowing kunais here and there, then the door rings, and is Pierrot studio randomly asking you ideas for anime. So this is lucky moment of life where your name will become part of the histoy in the new anime development. And people will say that you are the Ozamu of XXI century.

    What would you sugest to make for anime?
    write whatever you want, I think screens will help a lot.

    Example 1: based on a video game.

    Theresia Dear Emile


    This game was so good, that even it has 9 pages on reddit of people thinking what was the end, because there are like 2-3 theories about the ending.
    Plot: a teenage woman (Leanne) wakes up in an underground militar facility with amnesia, during after the WWII, the undergound facility is full of traps like jigsaw game, but by solving those traps, the character gets a piece of journal to recover her memory. The mother of Leanne is Emile, oficer of the torture division of the regular army.

    Leanne: "my mother smiles when she sings her song, and when she tortures people"
    Leanne: did my mother loved me?
    Leanne:" Sorry Sacha, my mother said, I cant see you, but we can write us letters in secret, so I wont disobey mother."

    Example 2: based on a manga (well I dont read manga that doesnt has the anime version, so manga readers, shoot).

    Example 3: based on a history event.
    Well Cevst the roman figther is an example that there is a huge gap to do anime about the roman empire.

    Example 4: write your idea.
    Imagine an anime where spirits get inside of humans to grant them skills, at the begining, the spirits naturally merged with humans, that new civilization started to study spirits to convince them to do bonds, later that civilization would combat spirits to force them to bond inside new humans. Fire, water, earth, spirits grants control of new skills. Some spirits are anthropomorphic, like the spirit of a gladiator, the spirit of the headless swordman. others spirits are animal-alike, a fast horse, a gigant snake....

    I have more ideas, but I wish to put them later, I think this topic could be very fun, and if there is any Pierrot bot watching this thread, I think it would be great.

    see ya.

    I have 4 ideas. The first is a pure copy pasta and fully belongs to American James McGee, the other three are not. I am not going to fully describe the ideas of these stories, maybe one day I will finally finish my own webnovels, rofl. I am working on them, but they are nowhere near being fully completed.

    -If I had enough money to buy the right on American McGee’s Alice, I would definitely make the continuation of the game as well as the game’s anime adaptation. I mean, it is kinda an isekai, but the story is just… so tragic and complicated. At the age of seven, Alice Liddell became orphaned after she witnessed the death of her family in a fire that broke out in her home which was destroyed in the blaze. Suffering from survivor's guilt and post-traumatic stress disorder, Alice began to lose her grasp on reality and was ultimately sent to Rutledge Asylum in London for her insanity, dementia and catatonia. Her doctor, Heironymous "Harry" Q. Wilson, was unable to cure her, even after nearly ten years after being committed. In 1874, Alice slowly began showing signs of recovery. Alice will travel in the Wonder Land that reflects her inner self, to cure her broken heart and unveil the true culprit behind the death of her nearest and dearest.

    Without that much of spoilers, this surely one of the greatest ideas I have seen in many years. And if you played American McGees’s Alice and Alice Madness Returns, you should know it.

    -I would definitely make an anime about female samurai, who were also called onna-musha. As an example, Tomoe Gozen. I am sure many fans of anime would love to know more about Japan that way and since such a topic is not that usual for anime, they will surely love it.

    -I would definitely make a space drama about a mercenary, Asahi, who does not have any moral principles: smuggling, killing; anything as long as he gets the money. In the world where he lives, there are two rivalrous corporations (Bora and Akai) that control the space. The anime protagonist is the member of Bora and the other, Akai, always tries to recruit him, because of his talents, but he always declines. One day, he gets a mission to escort medical personal that needs to visit one remote planet to cure an unknown disease. However, an explosion kills the whole personal and Asahi’s home space station authorities blame him for the explosion and brand him a terrorist. Thankfully, thanks to a number of his good deeds for his home, he is not executed. But exiled from the home. Having left his home space station, he finds himself in the furthest parts of the space, where he has to start from the zero to find out who is at fault for the explosion and his exile. At first, he thinks that Akai is the reason his life is now ruined, but later on he finds out that everything is not that easy. Having lost everything, Asahi sees the other side of the coin and that many people are having it extremely difficult to earn the money for living. He changes his approach to life and become an absolutely different person whilst unveiling the truth behind the medics’ death.

    -Another topic I would love to see in an anime, would be karate. Add some romance to it and this will make martial arts appealing for both males and females. The anime would focus on a high-school student, a womanizer, who leads a rather terrible way of life: alcohol, he thinks about joining yakuza and even trying drugs. But one day he meets a gorgeous girl that does not care about him at all, something he is not used to completely. He finds out about her and learns that she is a professional-karateka. Obviously, the only way for him to approach her would be becoming a karateka himself, which he does. Having started doing karate and being head over heels in love, will love and martial arts change the high schooler?

    P.S. Cheers fellow DtB fan.

    Hi Gaunter, thanks a lot for your enthusiasm!! I like all of your ideas.
    1) Alice in wonderland, I like a lot classic concepts with a huge Seinen spin,
    2) I like the idea of female samurais, if you see videos of the gameplay of For Honor, there are 3 fictional factions the Vikings, Normands, and the Samurai, all faction with male and female characters. An anime that touchs a little the female weapon master is Seirei no Moribito but it goes to fantasy and magic, so I want to point that is not easy to find female warriors with no magic or super brute force at all in anime.
    3) I am a fan of space opera and sci fi. Another reason that made me create this thread was this anime fan art of starcraft 2.

    4) I totally agree with your martial arts idea, I recommend you Natsuki Crisis, wich more or less has that concept, sadly is only a 2 caps OVA, and it could have been a 13-24 anime series. I agree there is a good potential not exploited yet of such concept, IMO.
    thanks, see ya!

    I, too, am a huge fan of the Star Craft universe and think that from all the Blizzard projects, it is their most successful one. Not going to lie, from all the possible anime adaptations, Star Craft would be №1 in my ‘want to watch’ list. Unfortunately, such a project is highly improbable. Though, Blizzard could have thought something with Netflix. Fucking Blizzard is too lazy for the new ideas and will keep on making wow classic.

    Unlike the posters above, my own ideas aren't too original. They're the following:

    - An anime about air hockey. This fall season airs an anime about regular hockey, so why not have something about air hockey too? (I quite like said game) It doesn't have to be anything big too, it can be a 12-episode series with 15-minute episodes or something (much like this pottery anime from the spring season).
    - A basketball anime, but which would be a CGDCT instead of the usual formula of shounen with boys. There's technically already something with girls playing basket, but it seems to be downright pedo, so I'd like something that isn't pedo instead and focuses more on the sport itself, perhaps in a slice-of-life tone.

    you are totally right, one thing is a cool idea, and another thing is if is "realistic" to happen, the goal of this thread is to have a nice ideas exchange and learn from games, fan arts, manga not adapted yet or voids in anime that could be exploited (I think roman empire anime can have a lot of potential),

    Hi, I dont agree, I like your ideas a lot!!. and there is a lot of original pontential.
    -The air hockey idea, it does remind me Quiditch the fictional sport of Harry Potter, I can imagine the characters in the air, with their sticks and with great animation movments.
    -Basketball, : I saw slam dunk and dear boys, is true that in general basket is presented as a "men sport", when I was in school women and men played volley all together as a friendly activity, so I think certain sports can have that approach like a friendly club activity in school.
    thanks for participating.

    Suikoden Tierkreis

    Suikoden saga has like 5 games (1,2,3,4,5), Tierkreis, and a card game , but unlike Final fantasy and Tales of Saga, it doesnt has an anime version.
    In fact Suikoden Tierkreis was so good that it had many small pieces of anime scenes in game, and voice acting all the main plot.

    The unique thing of Suikoden is that 108 characters must awake their powers as the 108 stars to defeat the one true king that wants to dominate the world.
    Of course the game focus on 4 (Sieg, Jale, Liu and Marica) main characters and slowly the rest of the characters are introduced, the micro side stories are great, if in theory, this could have an anime version, it can easy fill 48 chapters and you wont get bored of it.

    Well, air hockey does sound like hockey that would be played in the air, but this isn't the case sadly (which is why I posted the Wikipedia link, to show what exactly it is). It's actually a table sport, like table tennis then (so why it wasn't called table hockey instead is beyond me), and 2 paddles are used to push a flat cyclical puck (which is probably where the "hockey" part came from, since it resembles the hockey puck) with the aim to push it into the opponent's goalpost. So rather more mundane than you imagined then. So I kinda imagined a slice-of-life type show myself.
    On that note, it would be interesting to see a quidditch anime though, but I doubt that would happen, since that is copyrighted (so I guess one has to make do with the depictions of quidditch in the first few Harry Potter movies and games). What might be more likely would be for an anime about the real-life version of quidditch (yes, there is such a thing) to be created, but copyright might be a problem again, and besides Harry Potter has been out of fashion for a while, so this probably wouldn't be profitable for the makers either.

    sorry my mistake, I was literally imagining in my mind users with a space pack in their backs (Tanya of the evil) , playing a sport like hokey in the air.

    Quiditch wasnt a sugestion, I used it as a comparison, many ideas can have the copyrights problem, in an ideal world that that can be solved by coparticipation of profits, lets imagine anything is posible.

    but try to design a totally new sport (like quiditch) could be interesting, like the air hokey, you know in the air, with the jet pack, if something we learned from Tanya, you can add jet packs to WWII and have success.

    I jsut wish someone would redo all animes that are based on manga/LN but they change story so it fits into 12 eps

    Very interesting idea, and that is more or less happening. This is the era of remasterization of old things.
    Soul hunter, Boggiepop, Fate stay Night, Sailor Moon, Berserk, Legend of the galactic herores, all have a remastered version,
    In the case of Legend of the galactic heroes, the original 110 caps is being compresed in 78.

    But there are some anime that the 12 cap version feels rushed and needs more. The good witch of the west a 13 episode anime, the last 3 was very rushed with a lot of cool concepts all crowded because they didnt have more time to develop such ideas.

    I would like to see an anime version of Samus Aran, Metroid saga, and a cannon main anime story (because games are like stand alone missions).
