In Japan, the live action "Eizouken" movie will be released to theaters in May 15th.

How do you think about it?

I don’t know how I feel about this... The whole point of this anime seems to explain the advantages of animation and the limitless possibilities within the medium. But to then try to tell this story as a live action seems pretty ironic.

I saw the images of Saito Asuka from nogizka46 as Asakusa and thought she was just cosplaying and i thought she looked great as Asakusa, had no idea she wasn't cosplaying and that an Eizouken live action was actually happening, idk if i'll like the movie but as a pretty big fan of Saito Asuka i'm definetly watching it.

Ashurin and Zukki are playing on it so I'm watching

btw the live action was announced way before the anime started airing. They announced the anime adaptation & live action around the same time. So I'd appreciate if anime fans would stop the comparing it to the anime

Recently, when Japanese entertainment companies start manga-based adapting projects, they plan many projects to TV anme, live action TV programs, movie on theater screen and etc with simultaneously.

Assassination Classroom was the same way. First movie came out only two months after the anime started airing

I can't watch Asian series and movies. And live action movies based on animes are even worse than normal movies and series. It's too much second hand embarassement for me to watch those overacting artists and their face expressions.

The actors don't even look like the girls from the anime. Not even close. And they look pretty much the same.

I doubt we westerners will find it good and is mostly because we can stomach animation over acting but not actual people(or at least how east asians do it) and I'm guessing is why most people dislike japanese live action movies based of anime and manga unless the source material had no overacting.

also WTH is with that fake beard on the teacher?

I agree that Japanese manga/anime based live action movies tend to be over-acting and over-comical.

By the way, talking about the teacher's beard.
It is his own natural beard. not fake.
He is 高嶋政宏 (Takashima Masahiro), the famous actor in Japan. He acted in some Godzilla movies when he was young.
And His father 高島忠夫 (Takashima Tadao) was also the actor in 1960's Godzilla movies ( for example "King Kong vs. Godzilla")

Watch the twitter post below. The photos were taken when he was on TV show.

Hmmm...... I dunno, I know they were announced at the same time so it's not like it's trying to imitate the anime, but having the anime now and how just utterly fantastic it is, it's hard to imagine a live action adaptation that just has the same magic to it. I mean sure, the technical beats certainly don't need to be exclusive to anime and can probably be replicated, but the sheer creativity that's part of what makes the show I feel would be harder to recreate without something like integrated animation a la Mary Poppins. I'd love to be wrong, but my guess is it's just not going to compare, and while the conceit might've occurred for both at the same time, that's true of Utena's manga and anime and there's a reason only one of those is widely known.

I feel like the actresses are too pretty for the roles. I loved the anime for how the characters are portrayed as awkward and weird, like real otaku A/V teenagers. I know nothing of the actual actresses's abilities through lol.

It needs to have stunning animation as good as the anime, otherwise it's going to be endlessly looked down on.
