Is it just me, or is there a LOT of live action films and television series that had at some point been anime?

Heh, considering Iguchi is a former pornographer, producers have found the right man to handle project like Prison School.

imo Japanese movies/dramas are like 35% based off anime/manga/light novel material...
Examples:

Hana Kimi
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge
Death Note
Detroit Metal City
Gantz
Hentai Kamen
Princess Princess D
Sailor Moon
Gokusen
Hana Yori Dango
Nana to Kaoru
etc etc etc

well, you get my drift

Not sure if this is the same Ouroboros you're talking about, but there is a live action Ouroboros drama based off the manga of the same name.

Oh man that scene was glorious, hope this makes it that far. Though I'd prefer the scene a bit later on with Kate and Mari, best run of chapters I had read all year that.

Like the sound of this and do not like the sound of this. No idea how they'd pull of Andre and the art is so good it'd feel downgraded in live action.

"Machine Girl's Iguchi direct's" got me interested; "a late night TV series" lost that interest.

I am absolutely loving the anime so far and I have nothing against live action adaptations but... Why are they doing this right after the anime? What will the live action version offer that the anime doesn't? And part of the fun of Prison School is how ridiculously over the top it can get, which I'm not sure would translate well into live action either. I don't want to seem like I'm complaining or anything, but I'm just like "???" about this.
