    We've learned from experience now, when Hollywood announces your favorite manga/anime is going to be adapted to a live action film, you should be very afraid. The decision comes in a long line of different studio's attempts to find the next big silver screen genre. They refuse to realize that there is a reason why 'superhero' movies work in live adaptations but adapting a battle shounen to live action just doesn't.

    Anyways, as predicted, fans have taken to the internet to express their terror.

    The announcement included the fact that Masashi Kishimoto is involved in production on Lionsgate's adaptation. We're hoping that he plays a large role so that this film has the best chance it can of not being an abomination.
