OnePiece Podcast Wrote:on March 10, the website MyNavi Student released an article named “Just Continue in 2D! If These Anime Were Made Into Live-Action Series It’d Give me a Weird Feeling.”
The article shows the results of a poll on their website that went on for the entire month of February, asking people to give examples of manga series that would yield a “weird feeling” if they were made into a Live Action movie or TV series. Of the 500 total votes, these were the Top 5 answers:
No. 1: Slam Dunk – 14,0%
No. 2: One Piece – 10,0%
No. 3: Neon Genesis EVANGELION – 7,0%
No. 4: Mazinger Z – 6,0%
No. 5: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 5,0%
Among the votes that went towards One Piece, some comments mentioned:
“Because you’d see clear as day that the movie was full of CG.”
“The casting would be difficult for both Hollywood and Japanese actors. Whoever they’d go with, I think it’d end up being criticized.”
“I think it would not be accepted [by the fans] if the anime voice actors weren’t cast in the movie themselves.”
The other comments concerning the top 5 also revolved around casting issues, the over-use of CG that would be necessary in the adaptation, or even uneasiness on a live-action movie due to the flops of popular manga series that were made into live action movies, such as Dragon Ball.
Three runner-ups included YuYu Hakusho, Naruto, and Fullmetal Alchemist.
