There’s no better time and age to be an anime fan. Some previous niche interest is now becoming mainstream, but
Hollywood has a deep interest in the platform’s unique form of storytelling. Despite the production in Japan, there is a lot of popular and famous manga that are very well-suited to Hollywood film adaptations. And after all, we can avoid the same whitewashing controversies hounding some current films in production.
Just recently, Alita:
Battle Angel, Death Note, and Ghost in the Shell got live-action adaptations, with more on the way, such as Cowboy Bebop and a remake of a masterpiece of all the time- Your Name. While the acceptance of each movie alters, the fact continues that Hollywood notices the potential in adapting anime and manga.
Top 8 Anime that Deserve Movie Adaptations
Horror director Adam Winged , is currently developing an American project based on the famous Japanese horror manga, Death Note. This could be followed by more which surely can raise controversies among people. These are some more series that Hollywood needs to keep an eye on. Without further delay, here are the top 8 anime that every anime fan wants to see get a movie adaptation in the future. One-Punch Man
One of the most talked-about anime to have recently aired,
One-Punch Man is a Japanese take on the superhero comics of Marvel and DC. Saitama, due to his comical appearance, is often mistreated by his fellow superheroes. The lead is a Japanese man, and Hollywood would be foolish if they won’t try and recast this humorous take on modern superheroes in Tokyo. Future Diary
If a live-action remake happens,
Future Diary could be both retold and performed better. Also, this is the anime based on Yuno, the notorious girlfriend who kills those she sees as romantic rivals. Seeing her in live-action surely would be fascinating, for the fans. One Piece
One of the longest-running manga being published, as well as
the best-selling manga, One Piece follows a group of pirates in search of a mythical treasure. Taking place in a huge world of superpowered pirates and strange and exotic locations, the fictional world in which One Piece can lend itself to a diverse cast of characters. Imaginative and expanded, One Piece is perfect for a gonzo-film adaptation. Drifters
“Drifters” and anime have been going in and out of the lane, leaving the story deserted for some time. A proper and more extended live adaptation could potentially wrap up the story in a satisfying way, while also introducing more historical figures into the blend. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
It should be remarked that a live-action adaptation of
Diamond is Unbreakable exists, but it took the plot far too seriously and it barely made a notch. A new adaptation could fix the previous movie’s drawbacks, while also bringing the brilliant insanity of the source material to life. Durarara!!
Durarara!! more captivating is that the series is also a modern coming-of-age story. Most crime stories tend to be timepieces or bleak modern cautionary tales, so a live-action Durarara!! would be a whiff of fresh air. Steins;Gate
As comedic as the anime, things twist dark when messing with the timeline risks those closest to him. This amazingly low-fi take on a concept as huge as time travel won’t just be a fresh look at a common idea, but a surprisingly effective drama as well.
