  1. Slow on the draw here, but I can think of a good adaptation of a manga in 2006’s Japanese for TV Death Note movies. It has some differences but it faithfully recreates the tension and has enough differences to entertain those that might get bored of seeing the same story.
    City Hunter starring Jackie Chan is not hardly at all faithful, but still fun film.
    Again, both are originally manga. Most anime are adaptations themselves, fewer works are anime originals like NGE or Cowboy Bebop.
    So maybe The Flintstones might be your best anime adaptation to a live action film.
