Transformers was originally Japanese animation, but it ended up doing extremely well at the box office. I'd say it could go both ways. There will be Spider-Man success stories or Fantastic 4 bombs. It just depends on how the director translates the anime into our live action film industry. In all honesty, a lot of anime to live action conversions haven't been successful in Japan either (e.g. Casshern).

Remember The Guyver?

Anyway if they're gonna aim it at an American audience then it has to have an American cultural twist on it. I think that it'd be dumb to try to appeal to an audience with a movie where they don't recognize any of the cultural references. Don't get me wrong, it feels a bit strange to let American directors man-handle the stuff some of us grew up with, but it's always exciting to see how they'll approach something like this.

Thumbs up to attempting to bring Japanese animation to America in live-action form.

I hate live action movies..... So far, there's no good live action movies I've seen..... It might change in th future though...

i won't check if this is duplicate but its gonna be like comics into movies. the only succesfull comic books turned into movies are spider man and bat man. i think its gonna be a major flop. then again transformers did well. w/e i'll still pay to watch. they can recreate the old ones but keep DBZ off limits.

But isnt de Dragonball live action a little fake?? I'll rather watch de anime over n over again than watch de live!!
Its kinda hard 2 transform an anime into a worthy live action mve. I think more work is needed b4 we get a good live action mve.
Transformer was a total success!! Kudos 2 de bunch of them!!
I reali hope 2 see more good mve like tht.
Alvin n the chipmunks is quite a good try.haha!! Kawaii!!
