Right, but how many of those feature the brutal slaughtering of children?


Teens are ALWAYS killed in the Slasher movie genre as far back as the first Holloween. :/

The movies that would cause the most controversy would be of the more sexual nature series.

The easy answer would be School Days but in the DC Metro area where I reside I doubt most would bat an eyelash at the subject matter and given the poor delivery and sloppy writing it wouldn't garner too much attention.

The following live action adaptations would truly fluster Americans:

Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne: can you imagine Pat Robertson's head exploding on live television if they did a faithful live action interpretation of this show. The problem here would be I don't think there is much to the show other than the explicit content and so perhaps a show with a better delivery would fair better.

Ef - A Tale of Memories/Melodies: the complex subject matter and theological undertones would make for a very interesting live action adaptation and the delivery style would be both loved and hated.

Angel Beats!: now to be fair the story would have to be expanded into the full story that was intended not the abbreviated series we got, but the death humor and religious ambiguity plus the tear jerking nature of the show would trouble some, another loved and hated show.

Elfen Lied: It's Elfen Lied, enough said. Live action Lucy, made of nudity, gore and win.

Speaking from an American perspective you would have to add in religious themes along with sexual content if you wanted instant controversy.

Fair, however they are also usually high school/college age, whereas something like Another is middle school, and features some of the most gruesome deaths out there.

Almost any adaptation (even in Japan) would change it to high school students, though. Now if it was faithful adaptation, maybe. But even then, I wouldn't be too sure. It would have to be elementary school students to really cause an outrage, I think.

Anything Anti-Christianity theme would sadly offend alot of the Filipino in the Philippines being a extremely religious country and all .


Which I found weird considering Full metal alchemist is one of the most popular anime in history in the country and Edward elric is probably the biggest Anti - christ there is in Anime .


Alot of filipinos are sadly onion skinned and cant take a joke . Dan Brow just used Manila as the Gates of Hell on his latest book and media went shitstorm again and demand public apology Lmfao

Saint Young Men

Can just imagine all the bible thumpers freaking out over the idea of Jesus and Buddha living together as buds. Gags like the reason Jesus can walk on Water is that he's hydrophobic would drive them into a rage.

Religious people just can't laugh at themselves.

I think I remember watching that way back, and if it's what I'm thinking then yeah.

What about Great Teacher Onizuka?

I know we haven't seen the end of it yet, but I'm pretty certain Kill la Kill would get people pretty fired up, if only just because of the outfits. And then Satsuki's philosophies would probably hit a nerve, seeing as they are almost a purified form of capitalism (i.e. destroy the competition by just being better). I don't think people would like to be confronted by that particular reality.

I believe the only anime that when created into a live action that would break the fabric of reality and garner the entire world's wrath would merely consist of two words.

Excel Saga. PETA would actually be partially in the right to be angry at it. Someone would have to actually find Menchi and teach him the song.
