15 Anime Films Japanese Fans Want to See as Live-Action Films

Live-action adaptations of anime are in vogue, but most are based on TV series. It’s always a struggle to condense a 13-episode series into a 90-minute film, and some fans would like to see anime films turned into live-action instead.

Goo Ranking asked the Japanese community which anime films should get a live-action makeover. Keep in mind that Japan labels all animation as anime, and a few Disney flicks were chosen.
