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.

I don't tend to like live action adaptations but Kenshin's one was pretty good in my opinion despite the changes they had to do and the fight scenes were enjoyable to watch. Much better than Shin Kyoto Hen OVAs.

"It is in the manga section" -- perhaps you can name some doujin in the manga list? Anyway, so this is a manga site after all. But you only answer the first question (and incompletely too)

That's actually good news.
I really liked the first Live Action despite being very skeptical about it before I watched it.
News about 25-epsiode anime of Revenge Arc would be better, but I'd love to watch Kyoto Arc Live Actions too.
Can't wait to see live action Shishio Makoto. My sides are ready to explode.

Stop being an ass just for the sake of it. Can you read? Because it was pretty obvious from the title of the post that this was about a LA adaption. You purposefully chose to click on the link, so either you wanted more news about it, or you are just being annoying.

^ Yeah, this Dizzee is extraordinarily narrow-minded and ridiculous in saying there is no need for live action movie news even though the movie is adapted from a manga. He said "who the hell cares? this is an anime site". But the fact is if it is a live action movie adapted from an anime, this will still get reported here.

Yah, for some reason, this site is full of really mean people. i don't know why. I am so so soooo super excited for this though!!!! The first one was AWESOME. I didn;t think it would translate well into live action, because of the Dragon Ball disaster, but everything was just spot on~

After watching the first one I was hoping for more and then, the Kyoto arc!!!!! Couldn't be happier! I hope to see the same actors.

Rurouni Kenshin was the only live action I liked :P

First live action movie was very good so I think it has potential for these two to be even better. I hope they will include Aoshi in these two. I liked Kyoto arc but I was hoping that prequel arc with Tomoe will be filmed first cause it is definitely the best of Rurouni Kenshin.

I'm quite excited to hear about this news. I thought they did an excellent job with the first live-action, so I can only hope that the sequels will be just as good (if not, better).

Wow.. definitely a great news! Really had a low expectation from the 1st Live Action movie but after watching it, it was suprisingly great. 1st anime turned Live action movie that is done right. Can't wait...

Oh please let there be an anime reboot after this. Or at least adapt the Enishi arc into a live action (or an OVA). That arc needs an adaption badly.

Warner Bros really loves to cash in on all of their movies. They just made one last year and now more are popping up.

Are you the bloody applause monkey? Keep your sh*t comments to yourself or go troll on 4chan.
