    HAHA @ dragon. bad costumes are right. Goku's hair looks like it game out of the rair of a donkey. I could only imagine the amount of gel they had to use on that set. Definity keep it jap. Americans fuk everything up. I like the idea of DBZ being how FF Advent children was.

    Dragonball z will always look bad in live action(atleast compared to the anime) because it features guys with unrealistically spiked hair who look like they're all on steroids, and also because their 'fighting' consists of flying around in the air and exchanging punches and kicks Matrix style followed by generic energy beams that will always look cheesy on screen.

    With Naruto, there's a little more hope because the principal characters are human and fight more normally. Ninja melee and Shuriken throwing followed by various elemental jutsus that can look good on screen provided they do it like the fifth Harry Potter film(with hand signs instead of wand movements).

    You must be hard to please. I've heard that the Princess Monooke dub had a cast of high calibre actors including Patrick Stewart.
    oh you have no idea. the thing about high calibre actors is that the fact they are in the movie sometimes draws away from the actual character. thats perfectly fine in most movies but in anime films i prefer not to know voices. i would like to watch kiki's delivering service without thinking that kirston dunst is voicing the character and i would like to watch howls moving castle without thinking that the guy from dawson's creek was voicing a character, and if i ever hear the voice of billy bob thorton as an anime character ever again i may cry. when it comes to real anime and not hollywood productions or dubs i want to focus on the story, not who is in it

    Wtf sir? Patrick Patrick Stewart and Billy Bob Thorton are true gangsters. All those people mentioned have good voices for anime anyway. If I'm not mistaken, one guy who was on power rangers went and became a voice actor.

    its all fine and dandy to be a voice actor, im not saying they arnt good at it. its just different if u hear the japanese version before the english one. like i like howls moving castle and kikis delivering service in english cause i havent seen the japanese ones, though it was just really annoying hearing the princess mononoke voices in english cause i compared them to the original and they were saying different things in some parts

    sometimes its even possible to mess up the voices/dubbs. I like the Spike from the english version of Cowboy Bebop but not the original Japanese version.

    Naruto would......
    hm.....
    eh.....
    It can be pulled off. Will it? No. A series like Heroes would be most appropriate, but that's utterly useless since the franchise already has television covered, so no.

    May those who accept their fate be granted happiness; to those who defy it, glory.

    I think it can be done... as long as the americans don't have a hand on it. Let the japanese do it. Look at Shinobi, the big screen adaptation of Basilisk anime / manga. Although they weren't faithful on the original story, it was still pulled of pretty well.
