none, I don't want Hollywoods dirty, grimy hands on this industry. Then again, I guess I just don't want any hands on this industry other than it's own.

Change the question of the thread to "what anime should be made into live action" or something like it, using the term "Hollywood" is far too specific because everyone is just basing their opinion on the negative aspects of Hollywood. Yes Dragonball Evolution and The Last Airbender were terrible films but give the other western movie makers a break, some of them have actually made some of the best movies ever made. Given the right budget the right director and the right cast I wouldn't mind seeing every anime having a live action counterpart, but going for a specific choice I would have to go with Full Metal Alchemist since it's relatively straightforward, but if the director could handle it I would love to see Ergo proxy or Texhnolyze made into live action.

So if anyone want to embrace the unique style of anime to tell a compelling story they should just gtfo ? It's attitudes like this that stop the industry from growing.

Hmm... I don't really care for live-action adaptations (Hollywood or not) so i'm gonna have to say none as well...

Given the history that I know of them doesn't help either...

If I had to choose though... I would probably say Full Metal Alchemist... though I don't necessarily care for the Anime itself... it would probably make a decent live-action if done properly, with the right cast, director, and budget.

Yeah.... why don't we look at each instance of Hollywood's "attempts" of adapting anime... None of them were any good at all. Just like Hollywood "attempting" to make movies out of video games, they are pretty much always failures. Why? Because they degrade everything to the lowest common denominator to try to appeal to a wider audience, sucking the life out of the respected series and turning it into bland mush. Even IF the director or writer cares about a series, do you think the studio gives two shits? They will put their foot down on certain elements even if they don't make sense, or the film isn't made at all . Silly slapstick, forced romance that makes no sense, incredibly over-the-top action that feels out of place, complete mis-castings and changes of character origins just because of Hollywood self-inserted drama, etc. It wouldn't matter, really. It really IS better to not let Hollywood touch anything at all. I wouldn't trust them, and their track-record does not speak too kindly, either. :/

Part of the charm of anime for me is the unique blend of visual art (drawing/animation) with writing, cinema and music. I could see some shows being cool adapted into live action, but I would miss the artistic freedom that comes from not being bound by the limitations of a physical human body and world like ours. A lot of anime tropes would be lost, as well as anime's fundamentally expressive nature as a work of art through the actual animation.

In reply to what you told me, your right, and I accutually think what you said right here would be the proper way to word what I was trying to say . Although I think a live action of something animated would be disastrous, thats just my opinion. And either way, maybe I'm wrong and a live action would be AWESOME, but you never really know until it happens right. But also in response to what you told me, just saying something like that without giving constructive critizism like I did is NOT the way to go about that. I would like to formally apologize for seeming like a bigot who wants a closed community and will now withdraw from the discussion.

Oh, and thank you for reminding me about The Last Airbender. As an avid fan of the series, I feel they could have done much better by doing something similar to the hobbit.

As for you, I would like to thank you for standing up for me and also helping me see where my..... deconstructive critizism stems from. Your right, the reason we shouldn't let Hollywood have it is because most people just DON'T CARE. All they want is money, and they are willing to destroy something to squeez the most pennies they can out of it. I also believe that the animated shouldn't enter the real world as anything else becuase the bond of human body would constrict the unconstricted world it is based from, turning everything upside-down. Now that I've had my fill of construction to conteract my implusion earlier, I feel happy with my final anialis that anime should stay in it's own world for it's sake and ours.

Now this I don't really agree with. Yes, the big draw to anime in general is the visual style, however, live-action movies CAN do pretty incredible things to make a stylized film. Look at Quinten Tarintino movies, for instance, or films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. They have a set style that is not as limiting as one would expect from a live-action film, and can be down right visually stunning all on its own. Hell, look at how well Pacific Rim depicted things. We got a high budget, and insanely masterful movie that had giant robots fighting giant monsters with crisp movements and flow of the creatures and machines that made them feel pretty real. The visuals are not the main problem of adapting anime. It will ALWAYS come down to the writing, directing, studio interference, and most of them not giving a shit.

I didn't intend to say that I think the visual style is the MAIN problem, only that it would be something that would trouble me/I would greatly miss personally.

Now, I have not seen Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or Pacific Rim; however, I think my point still stands. I agree with your statement that a well-done film can be visually stunning. Movies like LOTR come to mind, or very artistically shot movies. But, live action will never be able to emulate things like the pop-in-comment, the ability to morph human character designs or things like this:


I am also thinking of shows like The Eccentric Family, Nagi no Asukara and Kyousougiga where the art style itself contributes to the overall feel/atmosphere of the show. The counterargument could be that atmosphere is easily produceable in live action films, but anime does that independently of the art style. Some shows, I don't think you could take away the particular art style and have any sort of equivalent in live action. Visual adaptation goes beyond simply replicating the action.

Again, this is my particular fascination with anime as an art form & my personal concern with live action adaptations.

I Do agree with this to an extent, but that's why they are adaptions they don`t literally take away everything from the film [Some do :p] Most of the time they try to keep the same feel and atmosphere that whatever they are adapting gave off although sometimes it is very hard to re-represent something when a large part of it is based on it`s art like The Tatami Galaxy. . But back to adaption . We haven`t had to many adaptions of games and animes we had only a little if the adaption rate were to be greater like books I'm pretty sure there had to be ones that would come out to be a great adaptions like, Infernal Affairs it was a Chinese film with a 95% by critics then they made a american adaption The Departed Which has a 92% critics. That was known as one of the best adaptions ever. If they were to broaden the adaptions of anime and video games like they do with books and remakes then there out of be some good adaptions.

They should only do the realistic slice of life, drama, josei and seinen anime like Paradise Kiss and NANA. Psycho Pass could potentially work out as well.
