What are the best live action adaptations of anime and manga?
Not as good as the anime but ost is great and the story cut out only the absolute minimum.
Please don't remind me. It fucking hurts, then again, I've heard alot of bad things about Arise aswell, perhaps the IP is going downhill and it would be better to just let it die.
I thought it was ahead of its time if it were released later I think it would've done better ...
>all that Speed Racer love
Also, Jackie Chan's City Hunter cracks me up. Worth it for the Street Fighter scene alone.
I never understood why they do these live action adaptations. The effects look like trash and the more over the top scenes end up looking silly. It seems fine for comedy or slice of life stuff, but not anything that would require CGI.
>Crows Zero is before Bouya, right?
He shows up in both movies, undefeated.
>older Bitou brother
No. But Bitou himself appear in the second movie.
Just advice, i think you should not watch the 3rd movie because it's just bad.
The Korean version is better, though.
Speaking of music, i heard that Back live action adaptation is good.
Is that true?
I remember watching that
I felt that it was only City Hunter by name and that was it
I remember my reaction to it was "meh" when I watched it the first time, and then it got better on a second watch
Not anime related (yet), but I thought the Ace Attorney movie was pretty entertaining. Mitsurugi/Edgeworth is a cool motherfucker in any medium.
I loved it till they had Koyuki sing, and they used violins or something to represent his voice instead of someone actually singing. At first I thought it was figurative of how nice his voice is, but then they used in during the climax scene, and just undermined the entire movie.
For some reason I hate these movies with a passion.
It might be because it paints the school and the students in a comical way, graffiti every, Yoshihiko kicking a cg water tower, etc. Feels like it shits on what the manga portrayed, which was more subdued and realistic since it was supposed to be a contemporary reflection of real life delinquency.
I liked it more than the anime.
Slightly off topic, but does anyone else fucking HATE Japanese live action?
Like even their high budget films look like straight to straight to DvD SyFy channel shit.
Seriously, why are Japs so fucking bad at making films?
But fucking WHY though? I mean we got Korea making AAA movie titles now, literally btfo most Western cinema, but Japan, who has been at this fucking longer than them still thinks Green Screen is an effective Special Effect in 2016.
i can't take this live action seriously because its ridiculous hairstyle.

I'm that guy, and i feel you man. But i just slightly disturbed by that because the good story was overwhelmed the bad setting, in my opinion.
This was great too
The first was such a hard sit being a fan of the series and I was drunk too at the time. I don't believe you.
Yeah I can see that as a deal breaker.
This was a nice watch in the summer.
Movie Rita>Manga Rita
Lately there have been a lot of rumours of Anime / Manga coming to Hollywood, as well as vidya to Hollywood.
Considering the huge inflation of Western Comic Book movies -- Which one out of Manga and Vidya do you think will be the next big one?
Space on Space beyond time has been my ring tone for 3 years now
Yamikin Ushijima-kun nowhere near as dark as the manga but was still a good watch, focusing more on the main cast.
How do you think about this Mushishi live action?
I think it was solid 7/10. Also, Tanyuu a QT.
It was a good series, better than the manga at least.
Is it stick to the original story?
I'm pissed. Why Del Toro did't adapt Eva instead? Is the story too deep for Western audience? It will cost the same amount of money anyway, geez.
You sure you wanna see Eva being adapted man?
Cause I really don't want to see it
I can't see how Eva will work in Live Action in any form
Tom Cruise is my nigga
is that edge of tomorrow? if so was this really any good? like, not even if it stuck to the heart of what made the novel good or anything, but actually entertaining regardless?
Who care about novel when manga is already out
So you want this guy as MC or Tom Cruise, your choice
Both are pretty interesting, it's real good
And these two will be Ashirogi Muto. Hunh.
Toilet scene was gold.
Has the sub for second movie out yet?
Was going to say this.
Damn, edge of tomorrow really blew away my expectations. I never read the source, but my mind kept going back to Muv Luv.
>ctrl+f 20th century boys
>only one result
The 9 hour marathon at the movie theater while sitting near an onion smelling creepy old guy was definitely worth it.
Yes, it's very faithful to the original story.
To cover all that stuff they had to divide it in 3 movies, each 3 hours long.
Don't watch it if you haven't already read the manga.
>people saying japanese cinema is shit while only knowing anime live adaptation
The manga ended at concert, but from what I can remember
Kenji and Friend haven't actually met face-to-face other than that Bloody New Year Eve, and the opposite happened in the movie finale.
That movie was long time ago, so I too can't remember it well.
Classic Japanese cinema is fantastic, and not just babbu's first Jap director Kurosawa, either.
Modern Japanese cinema, on the other hand, is pretty ass. Especially when compared to the older stuff.
