    Its more Canadian then anything else.
    okies i have to agree with Aceman. But the point I'm getting at is that the mordern it was meant to be it seems like the better the movie has turned out. The last airbender and DB E... both werent suppose to be to modern orianted.

    Nocturne. I think you make a good point n a sense. But I'm not too confident in the idea of a double of one show. Like if they did avatar right and did it in a live action series i dont think thatd work. Either they alter the story line or do the same story. Some animes you just have to keep the storyline. ehhh. lol idk. I jst think unless they do it right they don do it at all.

    Very Correct xD I wasn't sure if I should call it a Canadian film with Edgar Wright directing.Though either way, it's not an American film. :P

    Its hard to say on Dragon Ball, as even though the movie did poorly in the US market, it did incredibly well in the South East Asia market, (where these style of film are considered more the norm...)

    Manga can serve as good material for Live Action Movies, as the 'Lone Wolf and Cub' movie series are considered among the top Samurai movies ever made, and are still popular in Japan...

    May I have the source to that,please? I find it really interesting and I want a source so when I tell my friends they don't think I'm full of it. xD

    Also, I can understand that because they're not use to the that type of film. Just like films in their country will probably seem amazing to us because we're not used to their style in film. It's fresh to us so we'd enjoy it more as a change of pace.

    We talking live action anime cross overs or anime in movie form? I'll take it were talking live action cross overs...

    I think the ONLY way an anime live action cross over movie could work...a HUGE budget, a director who is extremely talented and a massive Otaku which LOVES the anime the movie is being made from, and please please...keep it to the story line...I had such high hopes for a non anime movie once, Resident Evil and OMG...It's not even RE, just another zombie flick with names and terms and themes from the games inserted. Yes I know, originality and so on. But I think they could have taken the game and went by how it was (meaning watching the movie is like being IN THE GAME), you know first movie in the Spencer mansion etc and add lots of new stuff and twists and things that either didn't happen or things that could have but weren't covered in the game etc.

    I mean...where is Berry and Rebecca? I dunno, for an anime or game to cross over, it would have to be done right and very faithfully. I doubt there will ever be one that will be done well, cause ppl don't put a lot of stock into them and so produce flops for the niche fans.

    I keep hoping though!
