I would like to ask you Mr. Weber, to consider having the Honor Harrington books turned into an anime. I've seen many anime as well as live action movies. At this point in time, I do believe that an HH movie or show could do well, yet I feel that live action would not do it justice.

With anime, the designs of the characters could be easily depicted without the trouble of trying to find actors that are just 'close enough' looking. A fair number of anime depict space battles in the way the Honorverse does, with hundreds or thousands of missiles being fired. The high quality animes would even capture the look of the technologies better without the chance of looking cheap that could happen in a live action show. Most anime characters look young even when they are supposed to be adults, and the idea of Prolong would work well, again without needing to find actors to look the part, along with the chance of a success and carrying on for years, then the there is no chance of the actors actually aging too much.

Mr. Weber, I feel the best chance of accuracy would be with you still alive and involved. With the way current franchises are, the idea of The Honorverse being made into a show after you are gone, would ruin it for any current or new fans.

All I ask, is that you please consider turning The Honorverse into an anime. With you involved, it could actually be great.

Thank you for your time in reading this.
