Since it is more normal (compared to other live-actions that have come) it COULD work. Like others have mentioned, the right actors are needed. Asian know how to make these type of films work. As long as there isn't a western remake - I'm all for it! Can't wait!
"In 2009, in a survey asking its respondents "which manga do you think is the most interesting?" in a pool of 6000, Kuso Miso Technique came at 11th, beating popular manga such as Gintama and Detective Conan." Wiki
Not sure how well this is going to work. I think most actors wouldn't be able to convey the moods and facial emotions in the anime. I'm sure it will be decent but I imagine it will not compare to it's animated counterpart.
wow this sounds like a bad idea. This is gonna flop big time. KnT is great because we get alot of animation that compliments the show really good. Like kawaii mode or the soft color filters that are showed every now and then. This will not be the case in the live action.
As opposed to many anime watchers, I actually enjoy japanese life action movies even if the characters look different and the story is altered in an enjoyable way. So, looking forward to this, interessted how it'll turn out..
Murrrzmm. Not really sure if it would work out that well. Let's say that some of the conversations between real people would be a bit .. awkward, every now and then? For example, I never met a guy in my life that blushes as much as Kazehaya does. (Now that I think of it, haven't I, actually? No, but really? That's impossible.)
Wow, I´m very curious. Anime has unique atmosphere beacause of its typical art, but I wonder how to covert it into the live action. A perfect casting, a decent music, a good scenarist and a director... it´s not enough. They must catch that "Kimi ni todoke very own magic" and put in on the silver screen. Well, it is rather suicidal annoucement than ambitious project - Can you imagine somebody, who intends to do any Makato Shinkai live action? No, that won´t do...
But I will be looking forward it and I want to watch this upcoming movie too. It sounds interesting, no matter how the final result will look like.
