Okay let’s start this off by saying that I am not wholly against live-action adaptations; just really apprehensive. This is coming from someone who had to sit through the ill-fated adaption for Eragon… Still gives me nightmares.
The idea of an adaptation is great. They bring us more content for the series that we love and it helps drives much more interest in older content. Sure, the live action adaptation of Ghost In The Shell was fraught with issue, but it did bring in new fans and promoted the older movies and anime. Then comes along the announcement for Gintama and Fullmetal Alchemist. Yay?
