Oh yes, they could probably do anything that appeared in the anime, but the anime only covered the first two books. There are two more, and the climactic battle is literally apocalyptic in scale. The other thing about the later books is that there are more time skips. Erin is in her early 40s at the end, and her son Jeshi (or Jessie) is around 20.

There's also the fact that the anime is heavily adapted to suit a "family" audience. The books are more for grownups. As we saw, the first two books translated well. I'm not sure the later books would, and that means they'd have to do the entire series in the more grownup tone. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it would be different.
