Rorouni Kenshin and Death Note were both really good. Just wanted to see if anyone else knew of others.

I didn't bother to waste my life with the Dragonball one. The trailer was enough to give you the insite that it was going to be terribad

I don't see the point of it. There is a reason why anime characters aren't drawn to look exactly like real people.

i dont really enjoy any live action adaptions either. they always just seem to come of as corny or half-assed to me

EXAMPLES:

I don't like live action adaptations of anime/manga, but if other people do and they create more popularity and make more money for the series then I'm glad they exist.

Although it seems that live action adaptations of crazy over-the-top action shounen animes tend to kill the series more than help it

Death Note was nice.

Gundam is why it shouldn't happen very often.

After the awful awful live action of Aeon Flux and I wasn't too crazy about Death Note,.I say a big no. Although I fear, hollywood, so short of innovative movie ideas will start to cannibalize anime.

I haven't seen an anime -> live ever becoming successful. I don't think there will ever be one either. If so, I'll be surprised. Most of the ones I watched just ended up terribly and like crap.

Death Note was meh.
Dragonball just made me want to kill myself.

Most live "anime" films look like mere high school projects.

I try to avoid anime to live action movies like the plague, same with movies based off of video games.

Honestly, I've always thought that Noir would make for a good live-action series.

I...don't really know. I haven't seen the Death Note film, but I don't think I'm going to.

I know Negima got a live-action version, but they had Negi played by a girl, right? That just sounds like it'll be nothing but fanservice, but again, I don't really know anything beyond that. And Sailor Moon got something too? Sounds like cheesiness...

I haven't seen many, at least not ones I was aware had been anime, but I did like the live-action Nana (it cut out a lot of the story that pertained to the non-Nana characters for reasons of length, but what they were left with was good, and made a good movie. Since I could still have those characters and stories by watching the anime, no problem),.

I also saw Honey and Clover. I actually think I might have liked the live-action a little more than the anime.
