Attack on Titan is a good candidate for a live film. I don't know how well the actual planned production for that film will turn out, though. I don't have high hopes. I've never been a fan of Japanese movies in general, especially any that requires heavy special effects and animation. It tends to look very odd (like Jiji in the trailer for the upcoming Kiki's Delivery Service live action movie). But that's just me.

I think quite a few anime could be good live action films, if handled correctly. Ghost Hunt is also getting a film - that's another good candidate. Many dramas would do well as a movie, like a movie version of the Usagi Drop anime. I think that would be sweet. Or a movie of Sakamichi no Apollon.



Subaru did a AOT live action commercial:

I have seen that commercial. I would be totally fine with the live action Titans looking like that. They look awesome in that commercial.

I think Pshyco-Pass would make an awesome one, I can't really think of any more that would be because, anime is anime because it a cartoon not live action,

Yup Psycho-Pass. I think I read somewhere that Gen Urobuchi wanted Psycho-Pass to be plausible enough to be done live action. Don't remember for sure but I agree with that.

Another - I can see this as a horror movie just like The Ring.


The deaths in Another generally reminded me of Final Destination.

If it was up to me, none.

But for the sake of the thread, Chunibyo. If made similarly to Scott Pilgrim (normal world + fantasy battles) it could be pretty cool. That said, please don't ever make it. I'm happy with the anime.

Like anything, it would depend on how heavy the funds and how good/serious the producers/directors would be about the project.

The main problem with animated movies/television being adapted as live action is that there usually isn't enough proper talent and funding behind the films.

Not every comic book turned movie is as good as the DC/Marvel movies have been lately, and not every fantasy book series has been translated as seriously and as well as the Lord of the Rings films. It's not a surprise that the VERY FEW anime that spawned live action films have had a rather mediocre track record in the west.

Though only the first three parts of Jojo's have gotten animated so far, I'd like to see Steel Ball Run turned into a proper movie trilogy similar to the recent super hero movies. It's a western with horse racing , dinosaurs, super powers born from the body parts of a well-known saint, a Native American that can out run a horse, and an evil US president that can cross dimensions. If a good writer/director does it and it's well-funded, it'd be fabulous.

As long as it isn't converted into an American-made movie, I'm fine with it. If it is converted into a Japanese live-action movie, that would be ok. I think any anime that's converted into an American action-movie will result in high levels of epic fail.

I've always had a desire to make an Angelic Layer movie. It was ten times better than real steel.

Black Lagoon! There is a lot of references in manga from action movies, so it would be great to see all that in one place. But, that is just my thought. Except of course OVA!

Any anime thats based in a plausible enough setting with proportionate looking characters. Basically, I want a Black Lagoon live action movie.
