10 Anime Properties Hollywood Should Tackle Next

10. Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad

Beck Anime

While not the most popular anime on this list, Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad certainly has its loyal following. It revolves around a young man named Koyuki as he discovers his passion for rock music through his friends and relationships. The show centers around musicians and is a really interesting drama series about passion. It’s a series that has no mystical elements to it so adapting it into a drama that could work well with this. While it may not be at the top of the popularity chart for getting  an adaptation I feel like this one can certainly be easily adapted and could find new life.

    One Punch Man is a parody. An absurd, egregious one at that. It being made into a movie doesn’t make any sense, because

    a) that’s been done already, Deadpool,

    b) the story is about a non-progression hero that is as boring as possible BY DESIGN.

    It cannot, and should not be made into a movie.

    There are some great anime on this list, but that doesn’t mean they should be adapted to a Hollywood movie though, OPM, Pokemon, Sailor Moon are examples of properties that should never even be mentioned when talking about anime which would work as an western film or if it could be made into one, like ever, wanting to make a OPM film is like Gintama, WHO THE FU** COULD MAKE THAT WORK?

    I don’t understand why people clamor so much for some anime/manga to be adapted to live action, Death Note already has a great anime that you can watch if you don’t like reading manga, or reading at all with the dub, Ghost in the Shell has a great movie and two seasons of SAC that flesh out the characters really well, sh*t, my favorite GitS character is Togusa, does anyone who only watched the new film know who Togusa is? Why would someone want a live action version other than to make money out of the fan base?
