    ......not sure if this is a good idea. The humor may not work the same way in Live action.

    Why? Too much stuff gets lost in translation.

    And I thought the live-action One Piece film was a bad idea.

    Uh, something this specific in its satirising is probably not going to work out. Like come on guys I get you want live action anime for some reason but for fuck sake. Maybe try something a little less high concept like Gunsmith Cats. Two babes who work part-time as bounty hunters and gun store owners/armourers driving around Chicago in a Shelby 67 Mustang GT500. You’d need to be fucking braindead to fail at selling that.

    I do not have much faith in this idea.

    It and My Hero Academia are inspired by American comics, and that may make them a lot easier to be accepted or adapted.

    But they can't just rush into this with the idea that this will be a rival to Star Wars or the MCU. That thinking is far too ambitious. Just let it be what it is, an action comedy.

    Or Black Lagoon, something along those lines.
    The french City Hunter movie is pretty close the source material


    even using some of the anime's music in the movie.
