Guillermo Del Toro has many planned projects to do many projects. As well as The Strain, he has recently announced he is interested in doing a Gantz movie. The full comment can be read here.

I also think that I am very influenced by Japanese game designers. I am friends and a big friend of Hideo Kojima, and I have been lucky enough to be friends with Otomo-San. But the series I think would be FANTASTIC to adapt, but I would love to adapt live-action GANTZ. I love the books, I love the book i don't know if you're familiar with it, called BLAME - it's a really surreal, beautiful book, but I don't know if you know it. But it's written by Tsutomu Nihei. And I love the work of Katsuya Terada. But I tried my best as an anime fan to try to do the first live action anime movie with Pacific Rim. And that was one of the reasons why I wanted to achieve an almost superpure color palette of super-saturated colors. I was hoping to make the movie feel as dynamic and as vibrant as anime.

This doesn't mean he will make a Gantz movie however, just that he thinks it would be a great manga to adapt. Del Toro is working with HBO to create an adaption of Naoki Urasawa's Monster. The first script has already been done. An animated series for Pacific Rim has also been confirmed, with at least 13 episodes and possibly done as an anime.

I originally uploaded this on Comic Vine, but it didn't get much attention, so I'll re-upload it here. To avoid confusion, no Visual Novel characters are to be put on the list, and only one character per series. They have to have originated from a video game.

  1. YHVH (Shin Megami Tensei) - Omniversial Omnipotent; defeated only because it chose to be, came back anyway
  2. Wave Existance (Xenogears/Saga) - The Supreme being of the series, but little is known of it
  3. Zeedmillenuimon (Digimon) - Multiverse destroying living parradox
  4. Giygas (Earthbound) - Universe+ destroyer; can attack through time and dimensions; the chosen one with Universal Pk couldn't even scratch him
  5. Exdeath (Final Fantasy V) - Can only truly die if everything else in existance is destroyed; even in his weaker form he merged two planets into one
  6. The Profound Darkness (Phantasy Star) - The Ultimate darkness of the Universe
  7. Sheogorath (The Elder Scrolls) - As the Daedric Prince of Order, Jyggalag, he was so great that the other Daedra feared him and ganged up against him to make him Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness
  8. Pyron (Dark Stalkers) - Planet-eating fire-demon that can grow to the size of the Milky Way
  9. Maxwell (Scribblenauts) - Strong reality warper who can bring things to life and kill them again with a word and create almost anything, though has only showed solar levels of destruction with blackhole; he can however, create galaxies; this isn't including Unmasked
  10. Amaterasu (Okami) - Celestrial Brush God who can even manipulate galaxies with her power
  11. Asura (Asura's Wrath) - Destroys planets and stars with ease; beating Chakravartin could make him much higher
  12. Sirius (Megaman Starforce) - Lives inside the blackhole in the centre of the galaxy; can destroy solar systems with his blackholes
  13. Iris (Golden Sun) - Starbuster
  14. Overlord Laharl (Disgaea) - Very casual planet buster; someone who has actually played the series can correct me
  15. Kirby (Kirby) - Can eat almost anything his size; has a few planet busting feats
  16. Bayonetta (Bayonetta) - Kicked a Moon-sized Goddess into the Sun; may have a power boost with he next game
  17. Gravemind (Halo) - Galactic Lifewiper
  18. Bowser (Super Mario Galaxy) - Moonbuster
  19. Lavos (Chrono Trigger) - Casual lifewiper
  20. Raiden (Metal Gear Rising: Revengance) - Ultra-fast and strong ultra-strong, can cut up giant robots with ease

We often talk of those who destroy at least one universe, and those who can yet destroy a planet. But what of the middle ground? What of the middle grounds? What of the starbusters? So here's a list of those who can destroy a star or solar system not just from anime & manga, but from all over. Just for fun and in no real order...

  • Hellstar Remina (Hellstar Remina) - Eats stars by flying into them. It may even be so that it sucks multiple stars towards itself like a blackhole.
  • Silver Surfer (Marvel) - Herald of Galactus. Infact all of Galactus's Heralds can starbust.
  • Nono (Diebuster!) - Busted a blackhole by kicking it. Her Buster Beam in her colossal form is 12,000 stronger than her standerd buster beam (which can easily destroy a planet).
  • Asura (Asura's Wrath) - In his Destructor form, he can not only destroy colossal stars, but multi-star bust smaller stars (no doubt he is capable of even more).
  • Melkor/Morgoth (Tolkien) - Destroyed the Sun, (or was it the equivilent of the Sun?) before the 1st age. Is prophesied to destroy the Sun and the Moon in the last battle.
  • Drax the Destroyer (Marvel) - Another Herald of Galactus.
  • Buu (Dragon Ball Z) - Insane pink monster that likes eating and breaking things.
  • Ideon (Space Runaway Ideon) - Can make blackholes at a whim and other ridiculous powers (if destroyed than it takes down the universe with it)...
  • Ungolliant (Tolkien) - Exceeded Melkor in power (partially by draining him of his), which makes her around the same strength as Melkor.
  • Sun Eater (DC) - Go on, ask it why it's called that.
  • Sun Crusher (Star Wars) - A weapon that... you can guess the rest.
  • Unicron (Transformers) - As well as eating planets, he likes eating stars too. Because f**k stars & planets. Can be capable of much greater than star level too...
  • Green Lantern (DC) - Their rings allow for them to travel through blackholes, create objects far bigger than planets and have solar system level durability.
  • Hao (Shaman King) - In the Great Spirit, he creates supernova and blackholes at leasure. Possibly much greater than star level.
  • Cell (Dragon Ball Z) - Stated that he had enough power to destroy the solar system at hie height (this is debatable, and has been debated much).
  • Discord (My Little Pony) - Moves the Sun & moon out of orbit to be annoying.
  • Gladiator (Marvel) - Another Herald of Galactus.
  • Gabriel (A Certain Magical Index) - One of the Archangels who can manipulate the movement of planets. Speaking of Archangels...
  • The Seraph (Bastard!!) - Another type Archangel from another series. The greatest of the Seraph can destroy galaxies.
  • Solaris/Tyrant Sun (DC) - A living star. It's place on the list is obvious.
  • Gravitational Horizon Event (Diebuster!) - The final Space Monster, which is powered by a blackhole.
  • Aiwass (A Certain Magical Index) - Chief deity in Toaru. Likely to gain a power boost sometime in the future.
  • Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann/Cathedral Terra Lazengunn (Gurren Lagann) - Shown to be able to destroy at least a small star.
  • Primus (Transformers) - Messes around with blackholes & stars but in a belevolent way. like Unicron, can be far greater than star level.
  • Tactimon (Digimon) - Can destroy stars with his sword unsheathed.
  • Atomsk (FLCL) - Capable of stealing solar systems with his mind.
  • God Empeor Of Mankind (Warhammer 40k) - Has shown power to dwarf a supernovas and FTL, even in a weakened state.
  • Bellcross (Heroic Age) - Can release energy equal to a supernova.
  • Zero 2/Dark Matter (Kirby) - Takes over all the planets in the solar system.
  • Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon) - Can destroy an entire Solar System.
  • Arale (Dr. Slump) - Cracked every planet in the solar system and the Sun with her toonforce.

A lot of you have no doubt seen Pacific Rim (which I remind, is absolutely nothing like Evangelion). I did. Pacific Rim by Guillermo Del Toro was made as a tribute to classic animes such as Gigantor and Mazinger Z as well as classic monster movies like Godzilla. It has already gained praise from various important Japanese people, such as Hideo Kojima (creator of Metal Gear Solid). The artist of Metal Gear Solid and the artist of Blood+ also made posters for the Japanese release. It's yet to screen in Japan, but judging by how much the Japanese love their giant robots, I'd say it'll be a hit. No doubt the chances of an anime (or manga) adaption will increase. It also broke records in China, like the Kaiju breaking the Sydney wall.

Anyway that's my thoughts for you. Would you like to see an anime or manga of Pacific Rim? I'd say it's a good idea.
