FEATURED POST

Kiss anime  has a wide range of charming stories that have already been adapted several times to cinema and TV series. But did you know that several well-known books among several generations were also the inspiration for some unmissable anime?

 

In this list, we will know a little more about these animes and the books that served as the basis for creating their plots. Check it out below.

1. Gankutsuou and O Conde De Monte Cristo , by Alexandre Dumas

Published in 1844, in a booklet format, O Conde De Monte Cristo is a narrative full of nuances, dubious characters, and a trajectory of electrifying revenge. In Gankutsuou, we have a story that is directly inspired by this classic of literature but transporting the story to outer space in the year 5053.

 

As much as the characters are entirely reformulated, it is interesting to note how the work's essence is maintained in several aspects.

2. Psycho-Pass and several works by Philip K. Dick

Philip K. Dick is considered one of the greatest writers of science fiction literature. In his works, it is possible to find several personas that influenced artists, other writers, plays, and, of course, series and films. Psycho-Pass manages to bring several canonical references to the screens, in addition to paying tribute to this great writer.

 

A curiosity about this anime is that the villain suggests another character to read the classic Flying Android Dreams of Electric Sheep? By the author. This book gave rise to the 1982 film Blade Runner.

3. Akagami no Shirayukihime and Snow White, by the Grimm brothers

Everyone knows the classic story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, right? The fairy tale directly inspired the series to compose its narrative, which features a protagonist with red hair. However, there are many novelties driven by the characters throughout the plot, tying everything in a magical and particular way.

4. Banana Fish and an Ideal Day for Banana Fish , by JD Salinger

JD Salinger's works call attention particularly for his style of narrative, eternalized, including, in The Catcher in the Field of Rye. However, his short story "An Ideal Day for Banana Fish" inspired Banana Fish's creation, written by Akimi Yoshida. The anime features two protagonists on opposite sides and who one day meet, coming together.

5. Magi  and The Thousand and One Nights

One of the oldest books in the world is the one that involves the infamous stories of The Thousand and One Nights. In this way, the fantasy anime Magi was directly inspired by some of the classic characters to create its immersive and conflict-filled narrative. We have the famous Ali Baba, Sinbad, and Aladdin in history in stunning settings and full of bright colors.
