Ah crap.

Makes about as much sense as the Shadow of The Colossus movie.

I'll probably end up crying either way, be it because it'll be so good and depressing or because it'll be so bad and hilarious.

Actually, I have faith that this'll be pretty good.

Well if you're going to convert an anime movie into a live action movie, this would be one of the easier ones, in the sense that it's certainly a sort of story that's been told through live action many times. I won't be interested in watching it myself, but I certainly don't think it's strange, whereas many other anime or video game to film adaptations just strike me as incredibly ill-conceived ideas.

^ This. I think that this could be adapted very well since there doesn't have to be many SFX compared to other anime. I'm just not sure that the live-action would have the same impact as the anime movie.

I wonder if they'll have a Japanese cast and whether or not they'll retain the setting of the story... :/

Knowing western producers, it'll most likely have an all Caucasian cast, set in some alternate history American city where America lost World War 2, just so it makes sense that they're all white.

THAT, or they'll be white actors with yellow-face make-up.

HnH is a good movie. Very nice.

But I'm worried about the choice of company to do the adaptation. Whatever. Hope they do the movie justice

I fully approve. Unless they'll go with an all caucasian cast. Then I only partly approve.

I heard there was already a live-action Grave of the Fireflies. Was that wrong?

Of course it's gonna have an all-white cast, film producers are a bunch of shameless racists. But since I don't watch live action anyway, I don't really care much. Grave of the Fireflies is one of my most favourite animated films of all time, but these guys are just going to ruin the story, so why care.
