New list post! I list down some anime/manga that I would really love to see get an live-action adaptation. Before that, I’ll show what inspired me to do this list first: ORICON had made a survey regarding on which anime/manga would they like to get their own live-action adaptation. Here are the top 10 most wanted choices:
I would really interested to check it out if ever it’s made to a live-action adaptation ^^, but since that there are other tons of J/T/K-dramas about basketball already -__-, the hype for sure will lower down XD.
2) One Piece
LOL! It will really look so cheesy if ever this would be adapted to live-action XD. I just really can’t imagine it, but I guess it would be better off as it is.
3.) Kimi ni Todoke (From Me To You)
*nods* Yup! This is a very good choice. I absolutely LOVE the story and it’s something that we can all imagine being a live-action series or film ^^.
4.) We Were There (Bokura ga Ita)
It’s a very popular shoujo manga and anime, so for sure its popularity screams to have an adaptation. Like Kimi ni Todoke, it’s also something I’m seeing off having a teen drama as well ^^.
OMG I haven’t finished the series yet, but so far it’s really awesome ^^. It’s a great pick to either have its own series, or film ^^! For sure it will really be cool ^^.
Ohohoho~ It will really be interesting if we get to see Gintama in live-action XD.
7.) Ouran High School Host Club
I would love to see more of Ouran in screen but it will be really hard for sure to make it live-action without coming off as cheesy. I don’t know but, the manga and the anime are both perfect in their own ways so it’s unavoidable that we will already have such high expectations from it. The actors better be pretty boys, and can handle each character’s unique personality!
8.) Tenshi Nanka ja Nai
I haven’t read this manga yet (and frankly never will start to XD) but reading it’s short description, I guess it can really fit being adapted to a J-dorama.
9.) Fullmetal Alchemist
If ever this will be a live-action, it’ll better be Hollywood doing this, because imagining Asian actors only with Asian productions (and Asian budget…)… it will be quite tricky.
10.) JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
I have no idea what is this one, except for the fact that it has action, basing from what I’ve read on it’s short description. I guess it’ll work when they have the right actors ^^.
What do you think of the survey of Oricon? Do you think what’s in the survey has potential to be adapted as a live-action well?
MY LIVE-ACTION WISHLIST
I thought it’s also fun to make up my very own list of adaptations as well~. I really don’t like live-actions that much but now that I’m in here bored, I guess I’ll make one for fun ^^. Hey, maybe it can come true XD. Anyway, Kimi ni Todoke is one of them and it’s already mentioned above so I’ll remove it already on my list. So yeah, the picks are personal so complain about it. You can share your own list later in the comment box down below ^__^~
My choices are only five so far, and maybe it’ll be updated as soon as I thought of much more ^^. I know we can wish for everything here and there, but I also thought of how will it turn out being live-action, so after some thinking, I only ended up gathering few since some anime and manga are good as it is already (and some are just basically unimaginable to be live-action-ed ^^;) So here goes:
Imagining Paradise Kiss having a live-action J-drama will really be exciting for me. It’s because I really love its anime adaptation, and it will be really more cool if we get to see everything real! Real fabulous outfits and fashion! I don’t mind if it’s a J-drama but I will really love if they went on more of an Upper East Side touch ala’ Gossip Girl, since Paradise Kiss is quite near that. I really enjoy watching the premise of fame, popularity, fashion, sex and society ^^. Yes, I would also don’t mind if it will be adaptated to an American series as well.
Choosing the actors for this one will be quite easy. Just choose a hot guy for George, a real-life model for Yukari, a popular teen icon for Miyako, while another hot guy with a bad boy image for Arashi ^^. Oh, and they better pick a beautiful trap to play Isabella ~_^.
Hehe~ expected biased fangirl response is expected XP! Well, I can’t help it! This is one my my favorite anime ever~ I really love this one, and I guess having a live-action for this can be pretty exciting since Oofuri is pretty realistic for a sports anime/manga, I got sick of those other anime overdosed with shounen cliches and suddenly gets superhuman impossibilities to make them win the game. Oofuri doesn’t have those, that’s why I love this series and it can fit well on being a J-live-action. Yes, back off Hollywood in this one!
Lol but before they even start making one, they have to be sure picking the most fitting actors XP. What’s hard is that it’s hard to imagine someone irl possessing Mihashi’s MOE~ powers XDD…
Pretty much I can really imagine Hollywood being successful having a Baccano! live-action film. I will be really COOL!!! I’ll be looking forward to it if ever it gets one, since I enjoyed the anime so much and while I was watching it, it gets into my mind that it really has a potential having its own live-action adaptation to stand out amongst other crazy ideas Hollywood has. So yup, personally I would like to see this one being adapted to a Hollywood movie…
The only problem though is the title, will the title be translated as “Idiot!” or anything XD?
Among all the Key anime adaptations by KyoAni, it is CLANNAD which I chose to be a part of my wishlist. Why? It’s because it will be an ideal perfect J-drama. It has a beautiful, charming and very interesting cast of characters. It’s also heart-wrenching and realistic as well, that’s why I really see so much potential from it on being live-action. Though I know the chances are quite vague by now, it’s still fun to play this realistic series by real actors.
And oh, they also better include the After Story as well, since that’s the most fleshing part of the whole series. What’s Clannad without its amazing conclusion anyway. The casting of actors is quite the tricky part just as usual, since it will be really hard to portray each character in the exact way on how the fans loved them.
Hetalia Axis Powers
My favorite German threesome pic ftw~
LOLOLOLOLOL!!! What if there would be a live-action of Hetalia with different actors from their respective nations?! It will be EPIC hilarious XD!!! Lol imagining it already makes me grin like an idiot XD. Of course, it’s pretty obvious that they should possess the accent and trait to fit in the role to make it a successful adaptation. What the hell anyway if UK is gonna be played by a Japanese with dyed blonde hair (and fake eyebrows) right? XD.
But still, the chances of making this happen is a 1/100 XDD. Who the hell would act stupid representing their country anyway? And… *glares at Korea*. But anyway, I’ll share this:
Speaking of a live Hetalia, this beautiful fanart/painting [credits] really caught my attention. OMG it’s so amazing! They all look like movie actors!!! I love how Alfred looked *melts* and lol his eyebrows are HOT XD. Alfred also looks amazing, and sooo well drawn~. Russia is innocent and cute XD (can’t imagine him being a sadist AT ALL XD)! France has a stunning profile, while Italy and Nippon looks so adorable ^^. I also love how Germany looked ^^ (OMG Germany~~~<33).
So there, I also shared my own list of live-actions… Do you have some anime/manga that you wish to have a live-action? I wanna hear so feel free to share ^^.
