    On the topic of the Ghost In The Shell live action movie, what manga or anime would you like to see on the big screen?

    Well this is an interesting question I guess. Most live actions are poorly received and therefore generally make you feel like you've wasted some money. That being said I haven't really watched much live action adaptations aside from the 3 Death Note movies released years ago.
    Honestly the new Death Note was looking pretty good with its trailers. What? No not that emo teen movie from Netflix, the Japanese one that came out a few months ago. That could have been fun seeing.

    I think the Live Action Gintama movie could be interesting to see what they have done with it. I already know Elizabeth looks hilarious. But it has the okay of the anime's Shinpachi going for it so it can't be all bad. As a Gintama fan maybe I should go see it while it is in cinemas here.

    Legend of Galactic Heroes would make an amazing HBO series. A space epic that would bring smart political discourse involving a benevolent dictator and a failing democracy.
    Not to mention someone could get all social justice warrior on it and call out it's seemingly pro dictatorship stance. I can see the outrage already, it's the kind that would make people watch it just for that.

    As far as live action movies goes I think Shiki could translate well. It'll lose it's unique art style but the core of it's story is essentially something similar to vampires.
