As a fan of anime there are many times when I think that having my favorite show turned live action would be fantastic.
I can see the actors I would have playing the roles, and who the director would be.

It seems however that the majority of the time they do make an adaption it's plagued with poor acting, and crappy directing.
The original source material gets thrown out of the window and all they keep is the title and character names.

And so with new live action movies based on Bleach and Attack on Titan being made, I have but one thought on my mind... here we go with more anime and manga's getting completely shit on.

Here's my question what do you think of live action adaptions, which are your favorite and which do you wish you could burn every last copy of.

My favorite is the 2012 Rurouni Kenshin film.

My absolute least favorite is the 2009 piece of crap they tried to pass off as Dragon Ball.

I haven't really seen a lot. However, the live action Prince of Tennis musical was actually really good.

The live action Rose of Versailles film was pretty cringe worthy.

I really wanted to see how poorly Cowboy Bebop was going to be adapted.

The Gatchaman live action movie just destroyed one of my most beloved childhood animes. What were they thinking. $100,000's spent on the costumes and not much else. Deviated so far from the source material as to be almost unrecognizable.
