Well ... is it really so much worse than what 4Kids/Nintendo has already done to it?

Though personally I think it looks more like a Backstreet Boy.

I'm guessing that's more what a live-action Jojo or Naruto would look like. Laughing

Myoopi barfs cereal and milk, too? Laughing (I mean, I think it's candy, but it's in a sugary little sea, so yeah.) Yum! That whole last panel is totally priceless. Laughing

I'd support a live-action Pokémon movie, but only if the Pokémon are animatronic, not CG.

And to think that people have been bitching and moaning about the live-action Dragon Ball Z film, WHICH ISN'T EVEN OUT YET! (Of course, I'm partial to the idea of live-action Last Exile or MD Geist.)

Kids, wait till the film's out, then watch it before you decide whether you like or dislike it!

I think the reason I support these live-action films in principle is that I hope they keep anime and manga from being stuck in the same geek fad ghetto as D+D, Buffy, Firefly, X-Files, etc. But then I don't want the movies to be as bad as the one for D+D, either. So I really think they should hire more industry people to at least collaborate on the scripts and casting to insure a better product .

And the fact of the matter is that is EXACTLY what Hollywood would do to the series.

The mere sight of that poster made me want to vomit!

Excellent job, Robin! Very Happy

I think it is so nice that Anime News Nina is always so topical and how it deals with current issues in Anime fandom.

Sort of reminds me of Murphy Brown, but with the politics and social issues replaced with material related to Anime, Manga and Japanese RPGs.

Keep them coming Robin.

Do you have any idea how very utterly thrilled I would be if such a movie came out? Live action Pokemon has my full support.

Very Happy

Back...? Did I go somewhere and not realize it?

ConfusedShocked

Oh god, have they been using my body to carry out their conspiracy plots again? To the secret bunker! Bring candy and electric blankets! I'll return next spring fatter, warmer, and hopefully invulnerable to their evil machinations from that point onward! *glimmer of hope*
