Quote by josephine12cuteMost of the time, slice of life and school
centered anime are good for live actions. A few ones I liked are:
- Hana Yori Dango
- Hana Kimi
- Great Teacher Onizuka
- Nodame Cantabile
- Bokura ga Ita
- Detroit Metal City (the guy who plays L aka Kenichi Matsuyama is the lead guy here) - though the vulgarity of the
manga and anime is toned down
- GANTZ (Kenichi is also here)
- Bunny Drop (and he's here too omg I'm a fan of him sorry)
- Absolute Boyfriend
- Rurouni Kenshin
- xxxHolic - I didn't expect this one to be so good, and fashion is given so much justice, I also love the CG effects
- Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
- 20th Century Boys
- City Hunter
- Lovely Complex
There are some live actions I was disappointed with but the first to come out of my mind was Ranma 1/2. That's
definitely a series better as anime instead.
I love Kenichi Matsuyama too! He played L so well. Thanks for your recommendations, just check the trailers on youtube
and I'll definitely check them out.
City Hunter? This
one? I didn't know it was adapted from anime. o_O

Quote by fireflywishesGREAT TEACHER ONIZUKA
(1998)-- hands down. I enjoyed the manga, but I LOVED the jdrama. The writers really knew how to tug at the
heartstrings, and the casting was phenomenal!
I haven't seen the updated one from 2012 since the original holds such a deep place in my heart.
Sounds awesome. I haven't even watched the anime. ^^ Definitely will check it out.
Oh btw, is there a way to edit this thread title? I mistyped it. ^^;

Quote by kyoru-chanfor me, I
like Rurouni Kenshin . . . and as a Ruroken fan , manga was the best but the live action is so coool . . . they know the
true meaning of "justice" for that . . . Hana Kimi is also great even though I haven't read the manga . .
.Death note is also good . . . i saw there's a coming live action of lupin III . . . hope it will turn out good like the
anime and manga :3
I knooowww! I really want to watch Rurouni Kenshin live action since it is one of my fav anime. I just haven't got time
to download the movie. :(

Quote by angelxxuanto be
honest if hollywood doesn't do it, I find most of them to be good, some better than the animation themselves, such as
Death Note, Gantz, and Casshern. others which I like are Cowboy Bebop and Dragonball. there's a new Lupin the 3rd coming
so I'll give that one a try. but I would have to say, the first three names which I mentioned got my picks as my
favorites/best based entirely on my opinion. as for a choice that isn't made yet, what of bleach or possibly wolf's
rain? even the creator of bleach said no-no to live action, but it would still appear to be interesting to say the
Oh, I remember seeing a Dragonball live action poster in cinemas several years ago. It's called Dragonball Evolution if
I'm not mistaken. I almost watched it but changed my mind because people said it was awful .___.
I think Bleach live action would be interesting, though I'm afraid it might be seen as a childish show since Bleach
characters' have so unrealistic superpowers and battles.
