Ghost in the Shell in 3D will probably have me explode in my pants without any rubbing it live in the movie theater.

I'm looking forward to the live action Dragon Ball. 90 minutes of 5 people staring at each other and grunting like idiots then one guy punches everyone and the fight is over!

If they take it out it would be a travesty to the manga and the anime.

What is he going to do, just sit down and go "poof"?

3D live action? What's that supposed to mean?

Haven't gone to the movies since The Two Towers, but will be first in line to see Motoko in live action. Top-tier character. Plus, Snake's coming too.

Hm, what's the point of doing a 3D version of GiTS since the last movie, Innocence had so much of it already. If they did live action version, maybe it'd be more interesting. Of course, obligatory jewish producer will butcher it anyways.

uh no, you're not grasping this

its 3-D. Not toy story/shrek 3d, THREE D.

Like, the sort of 3D you see at amusement park rides. Where something jumps out 30 feet from the screen and you're like "holy ****!"

gits is perfect for it

Only if the movies are shot in Japan, and in Japanese with subtitles.

Partly true. The thing with comics is they will have much longer storylines than any one movie could contain. You can only make so many X-men, Spiderman, etc. movies before the audience becomes bored with seeing the same characters over and over again.

They switched to Manga and Anime because it's new and it's different. Only the small section of anime/manga readers know of it, to the mainstream it's still a huge minority. And people will go to see something they've never heard about, at least once for curiosity's sake.
