I don't care... I want to know how many soldiers (& moviegoers) will go blind when Shin starts his Ass Dance! Just don't show Mr. Elephant, OK?! BTW, the shot of the Noharas in feudal Japan is Sweeet!

Man, I wish FUNimation would get the rights to dub 1 or 2 Shin-Chan movies... the R-rated laugh riots of the year!

I might have read this wrong but it sounds like this is not going to be a live action shin chan but an entirely different film using the story that was going to be used for the shinchan movie. In otherwords a romance film based on the plotline of the shinchan film excluding shinchan and stuff (guessing that there was a whole other story going on with other characters).

That is what it sounds to me.

You guys got it all wrong. "Ballad" is not an actual live action version of Crayon Shin chan movie, but a story BASED from the original Shinchan movie. So don't expect to see a nine year old kid do those Shinchan antics.

I think the article's title definitely confused a lot of people. Rumor mill...rumor mill...

My question though is WHY they whould adapt a Shin-chan story in such a way 8O That seems like an odd choice to me.

I think that It will be based on the plot of the movie not the characters... so from the sounds of this, it looks as if that the actors will play a story from the movie itself and not the characters such as shin-chan, (stop me if I'm going too fast Razz )

Once again, this is confusing matter to most western anime fans who simply view Crayon Shin-chan as a silly comedy animation and haven't watched movie version which live action is based from. To Japanese mainstream, two Crayon Shinchan movies "Adult Empire Strikes back" and "Calling the Storm: Battle in Warring States", directed by Keiichi Hara, brought up the Shin-chan movies from being kiddy anime to the level of good film which adult audience can relate to. Those two movies brought Shin-chan characters to be honest and realistic with audience who are watching the movie. In those movies, Shin-chan himself is not just a silly kid who shows off his behind, but a caring kid who shows his honest emotion. This is why the movie touched the live-action director, thus led him to produce the live action film.

Wow ok. Yeah, I haven't seen either of those film's so I really had no idea. That makes it much clearer now, thanks.

This is cool news for:

Crayon Shin-chan fans Very Happy Um,yay!

and

Shin-chan Fans Confused Err,Wha?

Well,I don't think this applies to the U.S. Shin-chan "dub" fans.Which sucks, because Shin-chan was much more,than just a foul talking dub.
It could have been presented better.Then again,without the dub,I wouldn't have heard a classy line like "Wanna play buttnaked Godzilla"? Laughing

I want to see this movie.

yeah. While the dub isn't completely disingenuous to the original material, much of the humor in Crayon Shin-Chan is derived from Shinnosuke saying things that are culturally inappropriate for him to say - that is, things a Japanese child shouldn't say - thus, that humor doesn't really translate well. It'd be nice if there was an official subtitled release but FUNimation's license precludes that, as I recall.
