If Madman Australia gets the movie and releases on blu, hopefully they'll include this mini-series like they did with Death Note: Light up the New World.

Japanese live actions are almost always garbage, they don't even dye their hair or wear wigs to even look like the characters most the time, hair color actually plays a big part in an anime characters persona, yet all i ever see is black and brown headed actors that you dont even know which character they are playing til someone calls their name. Only a few like the live action Gintama have the actors with the characters actual hair color.

Supposedly the movie is set in real-world Japan--where Japanese people don't have multi-colored hairs but are normally black and brown. They did otherwise with Gintama because it's an intentionally cartoonish sci-fi/fantasy, but in other cases the point should be whether the actors are able to embody their characters rather than bear an uncanny physical resemblance.
