Live action? Oh boy, my body is not ready.

Nnnnnnnnnnnnn, this is the work of Osamu Tezuka falling into the hand of the guy who made the Fast and The Furious movies. This will not turn out good. I won't pretend I know how rich the story of this particular work is, but I do know how rich the story in the fast and the furious movies are not.

The label "live action adapation" should be interpreted as "stay the fuck away."

I don't watch live actions, but more Tezuka is always good~

could be amazing, but probably will be horrible - dororo is one of the most genius works by the greatest genius of manga, and is also very cinematic, but i have serious doubts it could be done right by almost any director (short of akira kurosawa, who happens to be dead).........also, if you haven't read dororo, do right now!!!

dont know what to feel disgust or joy >.< we all know hollywood ruins any adaption to do with anime/manga/games i think live actions should just stay to the japanese film company's traditional japanese settings prior the end of tokugawa reign shouldent have americans or english in them xD
