According to Oricon News, a live action movie of Kuroshitsuji was announced to be premiered this year. Mizushima Hiro (official website) will play Sebastian. Anime director Sato Keiichi will co-direct the movie with Otani Kentaro (live action movie of "NANA"). The story is an original, which takes place 130 years after the episodes of the manga.

I guess at least like this they don't have too much risk of messing up the story lol! I'm reeeeaaally not sure about this though. It'll quite possibly suck big time hahaha but I might check it out. Let's be hopeful for something cool.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?
I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?
I wonder how long people would put up with this.
As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.
So, why is it that it's OK for V for Vendetta, Walking Dead, any superhero comic or the VERY cartoony Scott Pilgrim to get a live-action adaptation, but when it's a manga, people cry foul? Is there some sort of rule that Japanese comics are supposed to be animation and western ones are supposed to be live-action?
