I don't have anything against anime, inherently. I've even watched a couple in my time.

I just think other styles should have something too, and most Anime wouldn't fit very well. (There are a few I've seen with pretty understated styles that wouldn't offend me particularly in this instance, though)

Visit the link...  5th post down I think.


I won't pretend to know much about anime or western cartoons, which IMO they are both animation, but a mix of the two could possibly do TSA justice.


Live action would still be better, if it were ever feasible and or possible.

I don't see what epic fantasy gains from being live action, and it's hardly feasible at all without major cuts unless it gets a Lord of the Rings level budget.

It gains more of an instant recognition, over anime/cartoon, from the majority of movie goers in the west.  But, other than that, not much that I am aware of.

Well yeah that's true. Only a small subset of adult westerners will watch a cartoon, and a significant subset of that subset isn't going to watch it if it's not done by a Japanese company.

But with infinite budget and complete disregard for audience reached.

Yeah sure I suppose with absolutely infinite budget and no need to recoup cost live action would be better.

Also no need to do CG. Just hire half a million extras, and when the battle scenes come up, shoot real arrows and javelins at them.

The series is better suited as a musical

If it's to be a musical, I maintain Akka sings/raps a rendition of 'It's a Hard Knock Life'
No whistling on the slog!
