Officialy, they made the worst possible scenario came true. WTF, I'm asking?!
Who the hell approved this version of the story?! The only detail similar to the original ParaKissu are character! Where the hell is sexy George? Where the hell is cute Miwako, rebel Arashi and lovely Isabella?!! AWGRH! "#%&/!!! NIGHTMARE. 2 hours stolen from my lifetime. I could re-read manga. They destroyed my mind.
Dear Yazawa, tell me, why? :(

sounds like a horrendous idea! paradise kiss is one of my all time favorite anime/mangas and the thought of a live action, especially an american made one, gives me a rash. live action versions are never a good idea in my experience - animation/2-d art has something magical about it which is lost in translation...

I've seen the trailer of this movie.
It looks so good! That was the actual reason I started reading the manga. :)

Cast looks good and also act really well unlike most live action movies.

Well they did a good live action of Nana...


Good live action of Nana? Please, tell me it's a joke!

I have a BAD feeling about it, watching Nana live action was such a trauma, I don't think I can go through it again...


AGREEEE!

Certainly didn't say it was excellent. However that being said, I haven't seen the second one so who knows. xD But I love the guy who played Nobu.

Yea it's not gonna work, like at all. I highly doubt they will stick to the manga, if they did it would easily get a rated R rating.

Seems like no one else is but I'm excited for a live action!

Well they did a good live action of Nana... though that wasn't Fox was it. But still, maybe the mangaka will keep it to the same lines as the manga. Though I'm not gonna lie, I just finished it and I'm sad with the ending. D;

interesting... I don't know how I feel about that but I'll still watch it. lol

Funny :D It's japanese I hope?
But I think it will fail at the characters XD Ex Geroge... It wouldn't surprise me if he had a blue wig.. And Miwako a shiny pink... Well.. I think the characters will look unrealistic and fake if you know what I mean.


George and Miwako are hard enough but... imagine Isabella?? haha.. that would have to be done right...
