Ok, I usually don’t follow this stuff. I personally consider myself an expert in anime and I don’t really go out and research developments like this. So when I was randomly watching G4 (I know, sorry. I was watching Cops, ok?) this trailer came up…
So the mind-blowing engrish and cheesiness in the whole trailer aside, live action anime. I always look at live action anime with a very tilted eyebrow. Because everyone knows how much crap Dragonball: Evolution turned out to be. At least the fighting and casting in Blood looks decently cool. For those who are not familiar with the source material, Blood: the Last Vampire is a 2000 anime film produced by Production I.G., of Ghost in the Shell fame.
Let me say something here. If they ever make a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann live action movie, let alone if Hollywood does it (thank god, the studio doing Blood is at least a French studio) I will proceed to gouge my eyes out with my keyboard. I have never seen an anime live action movie (yeah. never) that was not suicidal. So the better the anime the movie is adapting is, the more orz I get. But apparently they keep trying. But hey, Cowboy Bebop with Keanu Reeves might work!
(this is sad because I’m probably going to end up watching both movies)
