I never mentioned anything about Warner Bros. doing the animation. Although they do own the rights on the characters and all.
Yes. Five fans from all around the world will get together on CoS Forums and make an entire anime of Harry Potter. That should definitely work. Especially the anime part. Oh, yes.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

I don't like anime so I probably wouldn't watch it.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

When I saw the word "anime" attached to Harry Potter I gave an involuntary shudder. I know lots of people love anime, but personally I detest it with a vengeance that borders on hatred. Everything about anime seems wrong for Harry Potter. Urgh. I honestly think that idea is distressing.

I don't think that it would be particularly good, no offense.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

I would love for the HP series to be adapted into an anime series or an anime movie. Think about the possibilities. The scenes will be great because they can manipulate stuff more than live action can do and the pictures of the characters will be kawaii and probably closer to what I'm picturing them to be.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

I hope Harry Potter stays FAR, FAR away from Anime
Anime turns everything into a overly emotional melodrama

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

I would rather see a Harry Potter based Anime series. Rather then one following the stories from the 7 books and the lives of the Trio, have the show follow the lives of a group of Hogwarts students currently unknown in the books.

Make the show about Hogwarts, not Harry Potter. Maybe have the main characters a group of first years and based some time after the events of book 7.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

I would love a Harry Potter anime. Especially done by Bones. (people who do FMA and Ouran Host Club) They should just use Kaoru and Hikaru as Fred and George. I think it would be fun. They could cover everything in the books.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

I think that an anime version of HP would probably resemble something like a fusion between the Akazukin Cha Cha (for the magical aspect) and His or Her Circumstances (for the teen-related part). We'd probably cut down on the slapstick and the bishojo for the former, and the heavy psycho-analyzing for the latter.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

Well I like the sound of an HP anime but the thing is some animes just simply go overboard if you know what I mean, it really just depends on who does it, it could either be brilliant or a complete disaster. If, by some miraclethey do make one I think it should be set around the mauraders era, it gives them more options, we get to see something we haven't seen before and it might not be such a disaster if they do something wrong.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

maybe the series could be set at hogwarts but the protagonists are like from another house, say hufflepuff. in depths on ernie & hannah when we only see them slightly ...well actually i dont want to spend 20mins a day watching ernie recite his study habits. maybe the bad boys in slytherin

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

Anime would be awesome and probably with that style of media, would be able to do what the BBC did with Pride and Prejudice and followed the book so closely by having the story told in episodes instead of just one movie per book.
Sure, you'd have probably 5 episodes per book and more for the longer ones, but it would be IN DEPTH, no cuts and the animation would be able to allow awesome magic casting displays.

AWESOME awesome idea.
Please please please. Someone hop to it!

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

I hate anime. Its overrated.

If I was a judge I would issue a 10,000 mile restraining order between the word 'anime' and 'Potter'.

Anime can stick with its conventional garbage but please, PLEASE, don't corrupt Harry Potter with that nonsense.

Also, I would give JKR some soap so that she can clean her hands after slapping the filthy scumbag who makes Harry Potter into anime.

Fair enough. Perhaps you've not had a very good experience with it. I mean, when they get it right, it's awesome.
For example:
1) The anime section in Kill Bill 2 where the story of "cotton mouth" was recounted.
2) Spirited Away

to name just a couple.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

Yeah Spirited Away is good.

I think anime would be interesting if it was based on HP but overall it probably wouldnt work. Anime works with manga because in a lot of ways they're written the same way.

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

One aspect of anime that I think would really work well with HP is, as the OP pointed out, the opening and ending videos. It works especially well with shows with large ensemble casts, as even bit characters get their 15 seconds of fame (maybe even get your ships in). And in the context of a heptalogy like HP, you get to see the characters mature in each new OP and ED of a "season".

Re: Harry Potter Anime Series?

It seems a little...wrong. I would probably be curious to watch it but I doubt I'd like it, especially if it were anime. I mean if it was in a more realistic style like some of you guys said, maybe I'd like it, but I can see the intro song with a guy singing inspirationally in Japanese showing shots of Malfoy sneering and Neville dropping his books with huge eyes with dots tiny dots in it and little anime sweat droplets are flying off him and stuff like that and the stupid ending theme with the slow pop music and some girl singing overdramatically in Japanese while we get snippets of Ron and Hermione sitting under a tree with little diamond sparkles in their eyes watching a sunset, and Harry walking with his head down in front of the lake with Hedwig on his shoulder. That's worst case scenario though and I know what you guys are saying that it wouldn't be like that, but that's what I see when I think about it.

Mecha series (especially the Gundam franchise) tend to have relatively serious OPs and EDs, without the cheese and sillyness that you fear, and while keeping the dramatics to a minimum.
