I concur about the most feasible idea being the anime version of it. There they don’t have to worry about CGI costs and scope of world.
This also addresses MarkDavid and Czehner’s point about visual fit for cast to an extent especially depending on the drawing style.
I agree with the specific point they made about hotness but think it extends to other things as well.
Like Chris’s body and skin tone transformation in the first few books or what Robbie and Draco look like etc.
This is something that Butcher has said would likely be the best bet for the Dresden Files in the youtube interviews that I have seen of him.
I would prefer the full HBO or Netflix live action approach but find it unlikely to happen
