This is a big yes. If only Medievil, Metroid, Parasite Eve, Clock Tower, Koudelka, Dino Crisis, Forbidden Siren, Rule of Rose, Fatal Frame, Primal, Ghosthunter, Shadow of Colossus, Ico, Bayonetta, Devil May Cry (another 1), Psi Ops, Metal Gear, Silent Hill, The Suffering, A proper Resident Evil anime, Okami, Oni, Baroque, Hunting Ground, Gallerians and idk what else got an anime at some point too.


Bayonetta has an anime movie. Gravity Rush has an anime short. Parasite Eve has a live-action movie but it's not very good. Some of these have manga too, like Siren.

A Baroque anime would be great though.
yeah it was kind of in the back of my head that bayonetta might have something, i dont count shorts tho. And no thanks for live action, i'd rather choose anime. I want an animated version so mangas don't count either tho, but it is a plus still.

I thought the new Tekken Netflix anime was pretty watchable, so maybe I'll check this out.

Lol in the announcement, they said "from the legendary director of Blade of the Immortal" which got me hyped up for a fraction of a second to get my hopes absolutely shattered instantly when it's actually the director of the live action movie and not Hiroshi Hamasaki.

Good news, we have Onimusha anime version
Bad news, there isn't announcement for this game, either reboot or remake

Yes I know I took the if only too far but there's so many great ps1 and 2 games (and other systems) that would fit for an anime. As for later ps stuff, well hmm, Gravity Daze.

Now where's Adi Shankar when you need his skill and influence :)

Getting the director of Dragons Dogma is a very cursed sign.

Another video game adaptation, but sine I played the Onimusha games I'll probably watch it.

Good, but without 3D CGI it would be amazing. I can't understand why add 3D.

This isn't the Vagabond anime that I wanted :')
