The Contenders: Page 2

21 Noragami Noragami
22 Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
23 Dancouga
24 Dangan Ronpa Dangan Ronpa

The executions scenes in the anime were taken directly from the first Dangan Ronpa game. They can't pull those off in a live action movie! Can they? - SelfDestruct

25 Tiger Mask
26 Shugo Chara! Shugo Chara!
27 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.
28 Fate/Stay Night Fate/Stay Night Fate/stay night is a Japanese visual novel and anime series by Type-Moon. There are three story lines in the visual novel: Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven's Feel. A 24-episode anime series based on the Fate route and a film based on the Unlimited Blade Works route were made by Studio Deen. A more.

Yeah, I don't see how this could work as a live action movie. As much as I love Peter Jackson for the Lord of the Rings series, not even he could pull this off. There would be too much to cram in and a very slim chance it would work. - RoseRedFlower

29 Wolf's Rain Wolf's Rain Wolf's Rain is an anime series created by writer and story editor Keiko Nobumoto and produced by Bones Studio.

Please please please please please don't make this a live action movie. It would be impossible to capture the spirit of this anime and the lore. There's so much you would have to cram in and leave out. It would be a nightmare to work with. Also, don't make CGI wolves. I've seen the Twilight series, CG wolves look terrible. - RoseRedFlower

30 Fairy Tail Fairy Tail Fairy Tail is a manga franchise created by Hiro Mashima. The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009.

32 Fist of the North Star Fist of the North Star

Well... it got one... and I have nothing to say. I mean Kenshiro looks like a fool when carrying out his signature move. - SelfDestruct

Eeyep. No doubt about it that this live-action adaptation was awful. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
