(Not sure if there's already a thread like this)
Who do you think did the best job of portraying their role from manga/anime into live action? Which actor/actress did such an amazing job that it seems that he/she was born to play the character?
***He/she doesn't have to be your favorite but does a great job portraying the character. Doesn't even have to be strictly Japanese as long as he/she played the part well.
Here are my choices:
> Ken'ichi Matsuyama as L (Death Note)
> Mao Inoue as Tsukushi Makino (HYD)
> Jun Matsumoto as Tsukasa Domyoji (HYD)
*I really liked Jerry Yan in the Taiwanese version but still hands down to Jun.
> Kato Kazuki as Atobe Keigo (PoT Musical)
*I know it's a musical but still a live adaptation and Kato was born to be Atobe.
I really liked Ikuta Toma as Nakatsu but I haven't read the Manga of Hana Kimi so it would be bias to choose him when I have no basis of saying he's great in playing Nakatsu's character.
More or less the same as this:
