I was just wondering, with anime like Witchblade out, The Crow would make a great story to draw from and create a japanese version via anime, would you agree? or is that a stretch?

I don't know but I would watch it.

I loved The Crow when I was kid.

The movies and the series was cool and all, but an anime would just be taking it too far.

The only good crow was the first movie, I don't even want to know how they would butcher it as an anime

how do you know it would be butchered? the movie was good, yea, but it depends on who writes the story and who directs the anime which makes the series good or bad.

what made the crow work was the time period it was released in - the end of the grunge/alterantive era. it was perfect for right then.

the crow would never work being released today and the japanese (as a whole) don't really understand western goth* - they have their own version of goth (EGL etc) that the crow doesn't fit in. could they make an interesting version of the crow? possibly, but i doubt it. the crow is so much associated with that subculture and era that i don't see how it can work outside, at least now while remaining "the crow."

would a bishi crow in japan avenging his loved be interesting? possibly, but there is an awful lot that could go wrong, and would have so little resemblance to the original crow even if it did work.

*i'm not even going to address or debate what is what isn't "goth", for simplicity's sake i've labled it as such.

well i didnt mean the whole goth thing, but the aspects of vengeance, and brutality inflicted against those who wronged him would be interesting to see in a japanese take through anime, which is a medium where you do all you cant in reality. Gantz was violent, id just like to see how far they can go.

Gantz is love though. I'd watch a crow versioned anime. Maybe it shouldn't be 100% like the movie, but the same basis (like said above) would be interesting.

no, the first movie was great, but I dont think an anime should even be thought up.

Other movies though? maybe
