In recent years the Japanese film industry has capitalised on adapting numerous anime and manga to live-action. While it’s certainly a hugely successful move from a commercial point of view, how successfully have these films adapted their sources from a creative perspective? We take a look at the recent wave of anime adaptations, including Rurouni Kenshin, Space Battleship Yamato, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Yatterman, Bunny Drop and many more, and try to pin down what it is that makes an adaptation work the best and what choices are guaranteed to doom it to failure.
