Title says it all! The show would be 100% accurate to the original, and it would be made with the same production quality as a Star Wars movie, and it would be in both English and Japanese, the English voice acting would be flawless. So, if you were to choose 5 anime series to be made into a live-action of this quality, what would they be? Also, say why you would want it to be made into a live action

EDIT: And for those wondering, it would not be whitewashed like that Death Note live action.

My personal choices:

#5 - Sword Art Online - Honestly if the English voice acting is done right, which it would be, the live action might be better than the original XD

#4 - Triage X - Guns, explosions, fast motorbikes, boobs, a hot guy with a generic action-movie-hero background, it would be perfect for a live action!

#3 - Angel Beats - Seriously, I think this would make one heck of a live-action, deep story, well-written characters, would be great in my opinion.

#2 - Madoka Magica - Deep story, well-written characters, I think this would make a great live action, if done well, which in this almost-impossible scenario, would happen.

#1 - One Punch Man - It's got action, humor, plenty of moments the directors could abuse CGI, and if they got everything right, it would be awesome.

I thought about this a lot actually and I only have 2 that if hollywood wanted to american wash it wouldnt be too hard and that is.

1 Fate/zero with it casted well. The story is twisted enough it could fit it and the newest season is set in romania so they could really do anywhere the writers pleased.
2 Cowboy Bebop but think Keanu Reeves is too old to play spike now but if casted right and not with "enter popular tv show actors here" in the place of the main cast it would do well.

Fate/Stay Night...some combination of the arcs
Space Dandy (I like the live action commercials better than the anime)

Off the top of my head, I can't think of much else that would really benefit from a live action movie.

Anime and live action are very different media and they don't cross over well or at all in some cases.

Both the live action Death Note and Ghost in the Shell adaptations were trash and even the Japanese live action versions of anime such as Your Lie In April or Parasyte the Maximum were off.

I am struggling to think of any anime that would be improved or even stay the same quality if done live.

Maybe one of the Idol anime or Black Lagoon...

The premise of SAO would make an acceptable live action movie but it would require so much rewriting to make it work that it would be a totally different story.

Adapting a title that has a long story line will not translate well into a movie not unless there is segment in the story that can be cut well and then the problems with the writing of adapted script and then if it need a lot of CG or not and then the acting and the then the camera work and the right director.

I also have a problem when the original work and anime , the characters are clearly caucasians and then they are not in the live version.So I am not a fan of the live action movies out there.


1. The Magnus Bride

SAO would benefit from a large rewrite of its story. It's just about the perfect candidate. Although a miniseries would work better than a movie.

I feel like if they ever made a live action of Code Geass and kept the same story it would do great. Claymore also if it just followed the manga

1. Naoki Urasawa's Monster. This would have to be a show instead of a movie but I recommend it nonetheless. It'd be the best mystery show TV has EVER seen, grounded in reality, and gritty as fuck with amazing characters and an enthralling, well thought out story.

Uhm... This is just about it for anything I PERSONALLY think would make a great live action show. Guillermo Del Toro just has to find someone to fund the project, and all he has to really do is copy the manga/anime frame by frame to have a 10/10, top 3 TV show of all time quality product.
