Lights, Camera, Live-Action: The 5 Anime Adaptatio
389 7.6 8.11. Trigun (1998)
If Quentin Tarantino can make a hyper-stylized western like Django Unchained work, then the misadventures of the Humanoid Typhoon can definitely work on the silver screen. Let a director like Joss Whedon or Tarantino loose on the project and seeing a cinematic version of Vash the Stampede and the Gung-Ho Guns seems worth the $$60,000,000,000 production budget.
380 7.8 8.42. Samurai Champloo (2004)
Takashi Miike has already proven he can do justice to action-packed samurai epics (13 Assassins) and create faithful, fun adaptations (Ace Attorney), so why not let the man loose on the hip hop-tinged feudal fun of Samurai Champloo? We can't throw our money at the screen fast enough.
349 7.9 7.73. Ouran High School Host Club (2006)
Imagine a 3D IMAX event starring the members of One Direction and Justin Bieber with Rebecca Black as Haruhi Fujioka from the director who brought you Dragonball: Evolution. Just kidding - we're sorry, but it was too funny an image to pass up. You can unflip that table now.
18 7.2 7.54. Spiral (2002)
This underrated shonen mystery series combines smart, calculated suspense with a memorable cast of characters (those damn creepy Blade Children) to create a tense cat-and-mouse game of life-or-death. Put it in the hands of David Lynch or David Fincher and we'll never sleep again (sleep is overrated anyway).
1055 7.6 7.85. Ghost in the Shell (1995)
Admit it: after reading Friday's newsletter about the Daedalus security system, you thought this would be a great idea too. Put it in the hands of the right director - Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott or, as it's rumored, Steven Spielberg - and find the perfect Motoko Kusanagi (Noomi Rapace or Linda Le, anyone?) and you have a cyberpunk classic
