    Who is beck? Anime is not limited to Japanese culture is the point.

    Hollywood isn't alone in this. Popular medias get imported & exported like crazy, and its been that way since the dawn of time.

    In Soviet Russia, Raymond loves everybody!

    It is actually pretty common knowledge among the online anime fanbase that American anime falls very short and does not even come close to rivaling jap anime.

    Should they actually produce a live action movie of Akira it would flop on the sole basis that it is too realistic.
    The only person who might be able to pull it off is Micheal Bay, and even then it would require the use of Cgi in nearly every scene
    (Assuming it stays true to the original story)

    Personally I think making a live action movie out of any Anime or video game is simply a bad idea.

    Beck's a musician who was much more popular back in the 90s. Culture is everything that's going on in a society's arts. So, I agree with your point.

    Regardless of what he was thinking the movie did hold true to the original story which is rather amazing since it had to be condensed into only 2 hours.

    And you know Dam well if he were to make the other 3 books into movies that you would eventually own the entire set.

    So the Russian version was a porno. Probably did alright then.

    Didn't that 'condensing' result in skipping tons of plot points, characterization and context? If he'd split the three books into three separate movies, skipped out on 3D and kept it still animated with higher production values, I would've probably actually liked it :/

    I think certain Anime and games would make great movies. Something like Gears of War is a very easy choice for a mindless action film for example. I do think something like Dragonball Z could be pulled off, but it would require a very large budget, and a director that actually knows the series, or is willing to listen to experts that know the series.

    Not to toot my own horn, but give me the budget of a typical Marvel movie, the right Hollywood connections, and a crew of experienced filmmakers and I could make a DBZ movie that blows your brains out the back of your head with awesomeness. Though I think the same is true of anyone that's extensively studied the source material and isn't retarded.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.
