There was a recent survey in which anime fans in Japan were asked which shows they would never see adapted as a live action movie.

What's interesting to me is that Slam Dunk was the top choice and that Evangelion (which was in the process of being adapted several years ago) was in the list and that other shows like Macross or Gundam weren't in the top 5 at least.

Fans vote on shows they never want adapted into live action

Gundam's not there because it already got a live-action movie. tongue.gif

But pretty solid choices on the list, a JoJo movie would either be glorious... or the biggest piece of shite in cinematic history.

Can we retroactively add Wangan Midnight to that list?

I don't know about that, G-Saviour wasn't so much an adaptation of Gundam insomuch as an addition to it... Plus from what I remember Bandai kind of considers it to not exist...

Oh snap... biggrin.gif

I was always under the impression that Bandai doesn't consider it canon and that the creator of Gundam didn't approve of its creation whatsoever. Not to say it was bad, I did watch it at least once and it was okay, but definitely I would've expected a live action Gundam movie to be grander than a small co-production.

I've watched a bit of Build Fighters and I've seen a lot of references to their other shows, I think there was even a cameo of stuff from Crossbone, but that might have been in Try.

Personally I would love to see a live action Gundam movie as long as it's an adaptation of the original Gundam and that it doesn't deviate extremely crazy from the original story.
