The CCP Ambulation Artists/Modelers/Animators could easily do some CG shorts of the Chronicles. Do it like Kung Fu Jimmy Chow ^_^

I don't touch it myself as most of the time either the fan base scares the **** out of me or the plot is impossible to understand.

Saying that if they did it properly then I'd certainly give them benefit of the doubt and look it up. Provided of course that the races aren't shown as the stereotypes that most RPers see them as (so not every single Amarr is a religious nut job).

id watch if it is ghost in the shell kind of noir style of type with thrilling plots that are halfway intelligently aligned and if there are evil politicians having huge origes with minmatar slave girls hot hot hot and if there will be stories about pirates too i will be completly sold oh yes yes yes please make my wicked fantasies come true !!
dont forget the tentacles !!!
format should def be short stories with high quality in picture and each with an intelligent plot.
quality before quantity.
first episode title:
tentacles of rage

No anime, the Intarwebs is full already with poorly-conceived drivel, like my posts.

It's sad to see that most people here don't think it would work because they think anime has only one drawing style. If you're thinking "Yugioh" or some dumb show like that, then yes, I can see why one would hate for Eve to look like that.

However when there are art quality shows like Ergo Proxy, Death Note, etc out there... seriously I can't fathom why one wouldn't enjoy the quality of the show.

To say anime is devoid of detail is to truly not know the art style at all, if anything it is THE leading form of artwork in the world where detail and precision is held in the highest contempt for their shows. Show me another form of animation held to such a critical perspective in the world today. Really. (Outside of 3D animation of course, which is in itself it's own artform.)

You need to know more about the subject to truly view it, but since I hang around people who dislike anime, I know many of the reasons for it. They are usually superficial reasons due to lack of exposure, and are most likely jaded due to the kids shows of the medium.

Anime can be dark, gritty, dramatic and profoundly detailed in both character development. Anime in itself is not a genre but a 'vehicle' for many genres, and Eve would be far too easy to convey I am afraid. It would be excellent as well, but Eve's story as deep as it is, isn't very character driven.

Which is necessary for a story to be told in anime, film and any other forms of entertainment. Especially if it's going to be told in series, or feature format.

I have seen more anime than I care to recall, and most of it seemed to be cliche-loaded, gratuitous stories with no redeeming features whatsoever.

They could probably do decent ones in the style of cow boy beebop. I'm not talking characters or plot but more in regards to scale. Small personal stories that don't really mean anything in the grand scheme of the world. The Eve cluster is certainly big and varied enough to accommodate such a style.

Yeah we could have a short story about Bill, who works on Chribbas's Veldnaught and his lack of moral at how a huge warship is getting used in such a demeaning task.

Or about Scotty, the docking manager.

That, I would get behind. Just not another story about some Special Kid who has everyone lusting for him, or an angsty martial artist/sorcerer who quests for revenge, et al.

So not about me then, since I probably would qualify as special needs since I'm deluded into thinking that everyone lusts after me.

God I love myself.

I would like to see something a bit on the epic side, maybe something to do with New Eden, and its reawakening. I mean, the kind of shockwaves that would throw on every civilized race in Eve would be dramatic. Tensions would definitely be high, and who knows what could be waiting on the other side.

The trick to making an anime of this is the story, and in not making it Japan centric. Alot of the 'failings' of anime in general are the very self-centered plotlines the japanese have with themselves. They feel they are going to be the center of the universe, and in Eve it has nothing to do with America, or Japan, or any real nation.

It's 4 completely different societies. Born of different heritage, each with different prospects and now at a state of a very shaky peace. The opening of the gate would open a brand new direction for Eve, and would make for an amazing movie, anime, or book imo. Will something try to come through, or wait for us to take the first step. Will there be a violent attempt at claiming the gate, or will it somehow bring everyone together in peace?

Looking at such a story from some minor characters, like a miner, or a crew of pirates would be interesting ala "Firefly". Though who knows? I'm not so deep into the flavor that I could write something like this myself... but I'm sure there are enough of you out there that could.
