Anime and America Cinema (Panel)

 

Hetalia (America)

 

I went to an interesting panel at Anime Next about how Anime or Manga series gets Americanized.  Some series that we all know and love should never be replicated. America seems to fail when attempting to recreate an Anime series or movie adaptation with their own spin on it. Sometimes it is not all bad but they still fall short even with the help of A-list directors and screenwriters.

A few years back, around the time of the buy out.There were rumors of a possible Runaways movie circulating on the net. I’m not sure whether, these rumors were true or pulled out of thin air. That realization would not sway me. Years later, I still love the idea.   A live action Runaways movie or Series (Tv or Netflix original) would be so dope.

I can picture it now.

Rena Nounen as Tsukimi was a pretty accurate casting; very believable.  The rest of Sisterhood’s casting was pretty phenomenal as well.  Azusa Babazono has the closes likeness appearance wise to her character Chieko.   Rina Ohta captured Mayaya’s mannerism to a T.   Chizuru Ikewaki and  Tomoe Shinohara who played Jiji and Banba weren’t half bad as well.
