    Question Reality or fantasy?

    After hearing that Battle Angel Alita may be adapted to motion picture at the hands of James CameronI got thinking. Having viewed previous adaptations of previous anime/ animations, namely Fist of the North Star, I wonder is it possible to properly adapt what works brilliantly in fantasy (animation) to real life. Are there any examples of anime that have a plausable motion picture equivelant or is it better not to make the leap from fantasy to life or vice versa?

    There has been a few Japanese examples of manga series (with derived anime spinoff series) becoming successful TV series. The best example is GTO, which the manga based live action TV series became the highest rated TV program in the history of Japanese TV broadcasts. There is also a 'Your Under Arrest' TV series as well.

    Then again, some live action series did not turn out well at all, such as the live action 'Cutie Honey' movie, as well as the forgettable live action Gundam movie...

    There are also some cases where a live action US TV show has been adapted into anime, as currently there is a 'Highlander' anime series under production. There are also rumors that a live action 'Witch Hunter Robin' series is in pre-production for the Sci-Fi channel...

    Yes, I did say 'forgettable'. There is a good reason why you haven't heard of it. It was a official Sunrise endorsed US production that was shown on the Sci-Fi network...

    And a (unrealistic??) optimistic review...

    Were any of the films or series released in the uk. Also there was a highlander animated series 6 or 7 years ago on kids tv in the uk (on the bbc I think). Finally are there any opinions or knowledge of the supposedly up coming live action battle angel film.
