Lights, Camera, Live-Action: The 5 Anime Adaptatio

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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).

5. 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
quisma88's rating:

Making a live-action anime adaptation is like a box of chocolates; you never know which one you're going to get and, generally, they're not very good chocolates. They taste more like baking chocolate. However, we're taking the high road and presenting 5 anime adaptations that we actually want to see.

this is not my orginal list
