I don't really like LA versions, they're most suited for more down-to-earth anime series. The school romance ones would probably make good LA adaptations, if only because the budget was smaller and they wouldn't need a lot of special effects (which could turn out cringe-worthy like the Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon LA version).
From the recent anime I've watched, I think Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun would be easy to make into a LA version; it's mostly talking and awkward glances, anyway.

I'm not a big fan of live actions...it's really easy to mess up the story...

i agree with you on that point.

It's hard for me to say which anime work I'd like to see translate into a live-action as there are a number of titles I feel could work out well in the conversion, and what titles that came in mind are:

I doubt that it would happen. If it was that easy, then it would've already been produced in Japan by now. Instead, the live-action series of Detective Conan involve Shinichi and not Conan.
But who knows? Maybe it would actually happen.

Id really love to see a shinigami from deathnote in live action...
Actually, I don't think that any live-action anime can replace the origal anime.

I wanted to see an actual live action Evangelion, but Pacific Rim was really good I suppose. ;u;
I have a problem with no Kaworu though fhsjkfgsk-

well, honestly...... every single live action I've seen for a anime was bad.. I wouldn't want a live action series for my favorite anime because it will most likely turn out bad... ;P

I wanna see a live action version of any of Masaune Shirow's works with an all star international cast

I know, I don't really like LA versions, but they're interesting to see for the complete let-down of accuracy.
Last time wasn't THAT bad, it was okay.

This is a tricky subject, while Pacific Rim is indeed a good giant robot fighting aliens film, there are some things that can't translate well from anime to live action and those that can have already been done such as Rurouni Kenshin & Death Note.
I honestly don't, but I'd just want to see how much of a fail it would be.

Do you even begin to realize how much an IGPX budget would cost to render all the CGI? Then again, if Pacific Rim was green lit, who knows.
As for LA Dragon Ball, don't speak it's name lest we remember the last time that happened.
"IGPX" LA would be cool.
I would also like to see how well they'd do a LA version of "Dragon Ball Z"
Ah, here we go.
I have a script written for a live action Lupin III film. A SCRIPT. That's how much I want this to happen. Lupin III is such an easily digestible franchise for Western audiences, and given how over the top some scenes can get, I wouldn't mind seeing a director like John Woo or J. J. Abrams (both directed a Mission Impossible film) or even Steven Spielberg, who rumor states that he said The Castle of Cagliostro was "one of the best adventure films of all time", despite the fact this has been heavily contested.
You know what? There was a live-action Lupin III film in 1974 titled "Lupin III: Strange Psychokinetic Strategy". Technically, this was the first Lupin III film ever, despite the long-standing belief that Mystery of Mamo held this honor. It served to introduce the uninitiated to the characters, minus Goemon who would come later, and had all the campiness and schlock of Adam West/Burt Ward Batman. Universally, this film is considered to be mediocre when compared to what was to follow but still holds it's own as a comedy film. Lupin also wears an ascot.
The trailer can be seen here.
As for a dream cast for a live-action film, that is easily one of the hardest questions anyone will ever pose to me ever. This is due to our lead. Seriously, who in the acting community can play Arsène Lupin III with a straight face? There is a live action fan trailer on YouTube where this guy named Luke Conticelli plays Lupin and is a dead ringer, so anyone who looks like him and can act professionally. Daisuke Jigen goes to Robert Downey Jr., no questions asked. Goemon Ishikawa is difficult but I'd give that role to James Duval. One look at his Wikipedia profile convinces me. Then there's Fujiko Mine. That one is very difficult, but I'm going with Catherine Zeta-Jones or, stay with me on this, her official FUNimation VA Michelle Ruff. Ever see pictures of Ruff? She could pull off cosplay of Fujiko with only makeup and leather clothes. Lastly, we have good old Zenigata. I needed to take one look at karate master Fumio Demura to be convinced. The face, the stature, the age, the look, the skills. He has the full package and deserves some straight recognition for his work in Hollywood. He is credited with being the stunt double for Pat Morita in all the Karate Kid films and has since done stunt work for several other films.
In conclusion, someone make the Lupin III film now.

I would love to see a live action Detective Conan. I've watched Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr and BBC Sherlock but I think Detective Conan would make a great kiddy detective movie. (Except for the death and everything. But I'm sure like most anime turned live action, they'd find a less violent way around it)
