    I'm curious as to how far they intend to take this. Will it be a limited series like the anime or will they try to squeeze out several seasons of it and keep it going for several years.

    Years ago i pledged undying loyalty to Chris Yost for his work with Craig Kyle on their New X-Men and X-Force runs. SO Im in.

    Did that loyalty apply to the live action Max Steel movie? ;)

    sadly yes.

    But it also applies to Thor Ragnarok :sly:

    also his episodes in the least season of Star Wars Rebels were fantastic.

    i've read enough of his work to know that Steel was an irregularity

    No, I agree, Chris Yost is a great writer and he generally does great projects. He was co-creator on Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Helped relaunch X-Force with Craig Kyle and did a great stretch of those books.

    I'm glad he's gotten the chance to work on some features and live action.

    So I'm conflicted about this.

    Oh thank gawd. He only has a story credit on Ragnarok.
    To put it lightly, he does way better work on animation than he does for live-action.

    These hacks are the showrunners. Creators of an all-time bad show Zoo. Pinkner co-ran Fringe, which I love, but he also wrote Venom and The Dark Tower. Netflix could've hired people with an actual vision. Not good at all...

    Interesting with all the anime and manga-related content Netflix also announced.

    Anime is notoriously hard to adapt so naturally they find the best worst people they can to adapt it to live action. I still have not seen Deathnote and off the top of my head I cannot think of any live action anime adaptations that were any good. Surely there must be at least one? The closest I can think of is Ghost In The Shell and that was merely okay. It didn't live up to the source but it wasn't Dragonball awful either.

    What exactly was bad about Speed Racer?
    GitS is the worst one to date.

    I don't remember Speed Racer being all that well. It might not have been bad but it was certainly forgettable. And there was no audience for it either cause it flopped. Just shy of $94 million off a $120 million budget, and that is minus the marketing costs to sell it.

    because it's a Speed Racer movie
    it'd be some grandparents' nostalgia as far as height of popularity
    pretty crazy that a year or so from that one, would be the boon of the biggest car-related action series

    Well, what about those Bleach or Rurouni Kenshin films? Haven't seen them for myself, but I hear they aren't bad.

    The West interprets the East differently and thus never count

    I haven't seen those movies either, and as 2kt09 said, they are better interpeted by Japan into live action than the mess we get when Hollywood is involved.
