    Anime Turned Live Action

    [Backstory]This past weekend was my school's 24 Hours of Anime marathon. It was completely awesome. Once thing we watched was the Cutie Honey Live Action. We also watched Hana Yori Dango Live Action.[/Backstory]

    I wouldn't watch the Cutie Honey LA again if I could help it, but I immediately went on the hunt for the rest of the HYD Live. I was highly disappointed because Domyouji didn't have uber curly hair (which I find funny and like, ha-ha), but it's a great series actually. Oh man, Tsubaki and Shizuka are absolutely the best characters to see acted out. All the characters were perfectly portrayed, and the story line combinations and rearrangements were well done and not let downs.

    So, has anyone else seen this live action or another anime-turned-LA you want to talk about?

    Re: Anime Turned Live Action

    Nana, well actually it was based off from a manga, but it has a anime now and one other i don't remember the name, but it was based on a very old anime. Im still waiting for Saikano live-action.

    Without knowing much about Nana, i watch it because there were a lot of positive comments about this manga. So i decided to watch it, it was great. It felt...normal i mean comparing from other anime/manga to live-action movies its hard to tell it was based off a manga. I would recommend watching Nana.

    On board the train to Tokyo to meet her boyfriend Shoji, Nana Komatsu ("Hachi") happened to sit beside Nana Osaki who was traveling to Tokyo to fulfill her dreams of becoming a musician. The vocalist for her punk band "Blast", Nana aims for a major debut for "Blast" in Tokyo where her boyfriend, Ren, is the guitarist for a popular band "Trapnest". Sharing the same name "Nana", both girls quickly form a bond of friendship. Their paths cross again when they encounter each other while searching for accomodation in Tokyo. Eventually they decide to live together in the same unit and this further strengthens their bond as the two "Nana(s)" go through their love lives and career.

    I've watched Nana LA, MARS live-action, Hana Yori dango and part Of Sailot Moon live action.
    Do NOT watch the Sailor Moon Live action!! It's so bad!! It makes me puke......X_X.
    For the Hana Yori Dango one, I watched both the Japanese & Chinese version of it. I like the Chinese better, it's more romantic. XD

    Avy & Sig made by me. If you want one, PM me!! Cause I love making them!!

    Do you mean Meteor Garden? I haven't seen that one, but I've heard that Hana Yori Dango is better, and that the characters look more like the anime/manga look.

    i like sailor moon live action!!! sure its cheesy but the story line is interesting....its not the "true" story line but it is a very interesting idea that the director of this series had.
