I'm a huge fan of musicals and I'm wondering what anime should be adapted into a musical and why.

This is among the most odd listing threads I've ever seen. Congrats.

I'll leave you with Railgun like I always do. There's no reason, I just like the anime.

I feel like Euphoria would make a delightful little musical.

I can think of three series that would make great musical, Fate/zero, 91 days, and Re;zero.

Boku no Pico and Inferno Cop would be interesting musicals.

none at all, please!
Or only with being tagged properly, so I can easily avoid them.

anyways, Bobby2Hands once made this topic about musical numbers in anime, and folks came up with a surprising-to-me amount of existing examples.

Why, Steven Universe of course. It has tons of amazing songs already.

Naruto and Death Note already have musicals, I think. As for other anime I would say, Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu, ReZero, Nodame Cantabile.

I don't know if I could stay awake for 50 hours, but that is something I'd be willing to try.

lol my thoughts exactly, what's the point of having musicals from anime then liveaction movies adaptations wouldn't be any different lol :3

But musicals inside the anime is a much more interesting but I don't think I would it watch it because musicals is meh :3

Seriously though, BECK or nothing.

The Golden Age arc from Berserk would make for a great musical. In the English dub for the 1997 anime Griffith got a few musical numbers and it's amazing.
