If you do not know who or what Happy Potter is, go jump off a building. Just kidding- Harry Potter is literally a “magical” series created by J.K. Rowling. From the Philosopher’s Stone all the way to the Deathly Hallows, the ‘Boy-who-Lived’ will remain a classic for many years to come by all literary fans.
That’s the case for the books… the movies, on the other hand, are another story. Apart from being completely disappoint with little action and several huge gaps in the original plot from the books, I’d say that the best thing about the movies was Emma Watson. Now imagine the entire Happy Potter series as an anime. Yes, the plot will be definetly be predicatlbe but wouldn’t the animation over the course of 24 per book be so much better than 2.5 hour movies? And that’s about… what? 5-6 anime episodes. Why not stretch out the plot so that we can enjoy the smaller details? I don’t know about you, but this is so much of a better idea than having… say… two-part movies over the course of six months.
Now imagine the cast… the perfect case for an anime series based on Happy Potter (these would be my personal choices):
Harry Potter… Shimono Hiro
Ron Weasley…Miyato Kouki
Hermione Granger… Saori Hayami
Ginny Weasley… Aya Hirano
Albus Dumbledore… Suzuki Tatsuhisa
Voldemort… the guy who plays L
Bellatrix Lestrange… Nana Mizuki
So what do you guys think? Anime series… or movies? And for a side reference, Twilight made into an anime would fail. Yes, it would. By the way, there is some hype to be a Harry Potter anime sometime in 2012… maybe?
