What about Great Teacher Onizuka?


I am pretty sure that GTO already has a Live Action version... Actually Onizuka in the live action is an even stronger character. He is an unrepentant pervert, but one that takes being a teacher seriously. At least the type of teacher he always wished he had. As much as he might talk about sleeping with his students, he never would. Except perhaps Kanzaki but only because she is mentally older than he is and could likely talk him into it. Plus she does not appear in the live action.

Onizuka is awesome because it is really difficult to make pervert seem cool, yet he succeeds amazingly well. I have rewatched the movie a fair bit over the years.

Koi Kaze, on the other hand, would likely cause a bigger fuss because it takes the situation of incest seriously. No comedy, just a pure romance situation as the siblings try to figure out a way forward. The age gap would probably have something to do with it as well. It is not comedic like Oreimo or a side action like Myself, Yourself, but a very serious show about the love between a biological brother and sister with about a 12 year age gap. The very fact it is a mature and thoughtful look at the subject would make it very controversial. It is easy to laugh off comedy, it is much harder to laugh off something that feels like it could hit home.

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.


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.


Technically speaking a live action American made version of Another would realistically have them in high school. The characters in Another are third year middle schoolers. Japan's third year in middle school is actually the 9th grade(their elementary schools go up to 6th grade), and thus that means using the American schooling system the cast of Another would be high school freshmen.

Any anime with a bit of gore in it. Elfen Lied, Mirai Nikki, Deadman Wonderland, Shingeki no Kyojin, even School Days. They would've said that they were mislead by the fact that cartoons are meant for children so they let their children watch it and now their children are scarred for life and need compensation. You know, one of those "I don't really want to have anything to do with my children but I care about them"-speeches which forces you to raise and take more responsibility for their children than them. "I can't leave my children alone for more than two seconds," (O'RLY?!) no, you can't, but that's exactly what you do, though, isn't it? They don't think it's a little strange that people did not bitch about this 2000 years ago, 1000 years ago, 500 years ago, 250 years ago, 125 years ago, but here they are bitching about it now, as if leaving their children alone for more than two seconds was the most natural thing in the world to do.

Seikon no Qwaser would really be pushing it. I don't even how they got away even in the ATX version with Hana and loli dominatrix girl's relationship.
