The problem for me would be that what can an anime do that a live action series can't do already? Sticoms are bleh for me. One of the reasons I watch anime is because things happen that would not normally be possible in a live action TV show. For example genres dealing with space battles or mechas is not something that you would typically see in a normal live action series. A possible problem I think you pointed out (possibly) is that if they adapted with the same name, there would be an expectation to have a likeness (both in appearance and mannerisms) to the same characters that have been established.


i think it is because of the anime series "servant x service" i can see alot more of these sitcoms as anime. let me ask you this if they do the exactly the same storyline, mannerisms, everything but they make the appearance more cuter do you think it could be a hit?


No, no matter how much you dress it up, it will still be compared to the original source material. Sure they could try to dress it up, and it may be funny, but we are talking about a small demographic that actually watches anime (especially here in the states) in the first place. Most adults would probably consider watching anime beneath them, and I would guess watch animated shows in the first place when there are children in the household that would suit the show age wise.

I do not care for sitcoms as a whole. Friends I watched under duress due to girlfriends at the time and I didn't find it particularly entertaining. I don't watch Big Band Theory, I tried and didn't find it funny. I didn't like modern family, how I met your mother, two and half men, and even The League got old for me after a while. There are already sooooooo many anime that already fill this category (as others have already mentioned), there is not much reason to reproduce something that has already achieved critical success in a video format. I understand that anime is sometimes used to push the sales of visual novels or animes, but we are talking about shows already shown in a video format.

Edit: Shows that I think would work alright would be something like Chuck or 24 (more serious in tone, but lots of adventure).

ok i understand what you are saying and i respect your option but i think people are more acceptable with games and anime than 10+ years ago. even kids back in the 90s still look at anime today which now they are in their 20s

This topic reminds me of a thread I started a while back regarding the possibility of anime FPSs being made. It happened before with Monolith Productions' (the guys who made F.E.A.R., Condemned, and N.O.L.F) Shogo: Mobile Armor Division, which turned out to be an excellent game and a worthy homage to mecha anime. But that was back in 1998. I wonder if we'll get another anime FPS someday.

I guess it'd be funny to see an anime studio take a stab at Leave It to Beaver. I don't know of an example of that.

You asked about American shows, not games. Games are a totally different story, so lets not blur the lines on the subject. As someone who is in their late 20's and wasn't introduced (fully) to anime until college I have to respectfully disagree. I grew up on Toonami's Midnight Run and later Adult Swim, and only had a couple of friends that actually watched the same shows. Since college, there are only two people that I know personally (other than here on the forums) that watch anime. I think you are overestimating the viewership that shows like what you are asking about would draw in.

I was just offering an alternative. I didn't think you'd slapped my idea down.

No, no. Play it straight. See how it looks. That's the grand experiment you're ultimately wanting to conduct, right? How do US television shows hold up as anime series? I'd legitimately be interested in seeing a black and white anime with the hokey music, non-problems, and unrealistic family dynamics portrayed in the fictional US that Leave It to Beaver creates.
