Which anime would you like to see become a live-action film?
The film industry has had mixed success turning comic and GN characters and anime into live-action movies. Are there any anime series you'd like to see someone give a shot at a live-action film?
Personally, I'd love to see Bubblegum Crisis given a live-action treatment... it would probably look a lot like Iron Man, I'd guess... but I figure, how can you go wrong with 4 sexy girls in cyborg suits (and a brother-sidekick following in his uber-equipped van) going after killer robots?
Any other ideas for a good live-action possibility? Or maybe some that you absolutely don't want to see anyone try?

Bugglegum Crisis is up for a live action release in the next couple of years I'm pretty sure.
Frankly, live action anime scares me a little. The few I’ve seen left me disappointed but if I was to choose, I think I’d like to see “Grave of the Fireflies” given a live action version.

The problem is that to make a live action version of a Sci-Fi anime would cost a few bucks so it’s more than likely they’ll get a big name director (I think Spielberg was on for the "Ghost in a Shell” movie) regardless of how appropriate they may be.
I guess in the end it’s like watching a movie based on a favourite book. You often have to disassociate the two in order to enjoy the new one (or I do anyway).

(And I might not have chosen Spielberg for GitS, but on the other hand, I thought he did an incredible job on The War of the Worlds, and I could go with him. I'd probably choose Ridley Scott, J.J. Abrams or James Cameron first.)
