Re: Anime that would make great film adaptations
I recently started to watch Full Metal Alchemist and i think it would probably work better as a live-action tv show instead of a movie, with Naruto and Bleach you can separate the arcs into movies, however FMA has a single arc with a lot of stories in between, and all of them are quite interesting.
Make the main character a little older and i think you have a potencial hit on CW.
Naruto and Bleach have the potencial but they would have to mainly cast asian actors or in least half-asian actors (Ichigo, Chad and Orihime allways seemed to be half-japanese and that along with their hair color has been the focus of some of the flashbacks) and to tell the full story they would need in least 5 films.
In fact, i can't think of an anime/ manga that wouldn't need more than 1 film to be adapted
