    As in made into Hollywood movies? NONE. Absolutely zero.
    As Japanese live action movies? I'd be less opposed, but basically see above.
    As fully-animated CGI movies? Also none, but I'm interested in seeing Gatchaman anyway.
    As anime TV series condensed into anime theatrical movies? Again, none. Not opposed to it, but I can just watch the shows instead.
    I guess that leaves anime movies that are just regular anime movies. Dunno which of those I wanna see made into anime movies, 'cause they haven't been made yet.


    Yeah, I got nothin' else.

    I'd like to see Bubblegum Crisis adapted into a film. Luckily for me, that is apparantly on the cards. It'll be like Iron Man but with a rock star, a hacker, a fitness instructor (or office lady) and a bra and panty store owner fighting large, out of control robots in powered armour. Story was pretty neat too.

    That or Cowboy Bebop.

    Elfen Lied (with Tarantino at the helm)
    Gundam (One Year War only, none of this Seed and Wing bullshit - preferably something gritty and realistic along the lines of 'The 08th MS Team')
    Gunslinger Girl (in the vein of 'The Professional' or 'Heat')

    None.

    I'm at at a complete loss as to why people seem to think that animated works need to be remade in live action to be legitimised or how they would come to the conclusion that said works would be better with real people when 99.9% of the evidence would suggest otherwise.

    Well the aptly named Animation Age Ghetto has something to do with it. A work automatically discarded as childish or for children due to its medium, regardless of content. A live action adaptation seems to add weight and a certain respectability to its franchise.

    Also, provided you either (a) don't fuck it up and make a well done, well paced and interesting stoy or (b) pander to lowest common denomenator, you can potentially inject huge amounts money into the franchise.


    You know, like Transformers did.

    If people need mainstream acceptance to validate thier own tastes and opinions, they've got issues well beyond hollywood not raiding Japan for ideas to trainwreck. I would have thought that folks who are savvy enougth to go and find quality minority entertainment on thier own would be beyond that sort of idiocy.

    It woulden't make much difference to sucessfull Japanese franchises anyway since they make tons more money then they need to perpetuate themselves without our help.

    Both excellent and fair points, of course the most common answer to why this happens is simple:

    Why not?

    And I don't see a huge problem with the creator of a successful anime/comic/cartoon shooting for a Hollywood adaptation. More money and mainstream exposure bringing in more new potential fans and allowing them to view your older works or even related works by others.

    Again, like Transformers did.

    Although I still though RotF was largely rubbish but hey its the thought that counts.

    Agreed, though I'm not totally against it either, I just want to see a good movie adaptation or not. With the way Hollywood is going though I don't really have any high hopes especially with the way films like Star Wars and ROTF have turned out.
