    Re: T.V. Shows as an Anime

    I think it would be cool to see something like Farscape or Andromeda go anime. The story lines are in-depth enough and the characters are diverse enough.
    As for anime made into live action: 1) a really good movie of Gundam, possibly using wing or the original series, 2) I think it's already in the works, but Robotech, 3) Martian Successor Nadesico would be an interesting movie due to the wishy washy hero and cornball group, it would almost have to be a comedy

However the east(by east i mean far east) isn't really into shows like Buffy and other western titles out there, some love it but some just don't care. There are a few well-received ones here and there, like Heroes and Highlander tho....So if something like Buffy or Xena becomes adapted into anime, i wouldn't be surprised if it ends up successful but i wouldn't be surprised if it ends up as a total flop either.

    If western shows doesn't really tickle the eastern taste that much, the same can be said for anime and the west.

    It is a possibility but i don't think that Japan would Japanize something that is considered a B-show in Japan(or even Asia).

    True, that's always the most likely thing to happen either way. Lots of Japanese titles have already been Americanized and vice versa, and what you've just said happens most of the time...think of GoLion and Dairugger XV which was westernized as Voltron(lions and Vehicles), both ended up having drastic makeovers...Same can be said for Japanized shows, think Spiderman, think Powerpuff Girls Z, and so on.

    Another thing, if a western show becomes easternized(and vice-versa) do you think that it will appeal to the fans of its original region, and to the core fans of the original version? Looking back at history, i don't think so...Think Power Rangers(in its entirety), yes it did appeal to the west but eastern and hardcore fans of the Sentai(the kind of show from which PR was taken) were angry coz they thought the west destroyed it. The same can be said for Spiderman, the west and the comic fans thought it desecrated an icon. Look at the Asian horror flicks, they did american versions and the asians had negative reactions. Think Godzilla, Kamen Rider RX(americanized as Masked rider), etc., yadda yadda.

    It's okay for a person to wish for an American show to have an Anime spinoff but when it comes to fruition i wouldn't be surprized if that person ends up in disappointment boulevard. Localization is one BIG obstacle....

    American cartoon-Anime, Movie-Movie, Cartoon and Comic-Tokusatsu, Western Show-Anime, so on and so forth....It always comes packaged with gazillion tons of negativity.

    True, one person who like the jap version of an anime may hate the american version of that show or the other way around. Like me, This is what i hate about the americans when they dubbed a jap anime, There may be some screen shot been cut or an unaired show that was an importand episode in the seires, it would be good to keep the original storyline and every episode and only dubbed the voices for the character and the name for that character, others may like both version of that particular anime. but everyone have a different view on that one anime and wheather they like both the jap or american version
