This will probably make the whole cinema cry. It’s action, romance, and drama fit for a live-action adaptation.
Since Kiseijuu (Parasyte) has already a live-action adaptation, I’ll go with Tokyo Ghoul. This is not your ordinary ghoul or zombie movie. It’s is more than just ghouls eating people. It’s an examination of self and desire.
Berserk will be the dark knight of medieval fantasy movies when it comes to the big screen. Everyone will go berserk over it.
Imagine all those explosions and fight scenes in live-action, It would be epic. Evangelion does not only shine on the mecha aspect but also on the psychological character development. So it not only needs good visual effects but also good character acting.
It’s popularity alone can get this anime a live-action adaptation. Think of the epic battles with gorgeous effects and booming theme music in theaters. Fans will go nuts with who’s going to portray their beloved Saber and Rin.

4. Shinsekai Yori
One of the most disturbing and mysterious horror anime, Shinsekai Yori is about a false utopia full of mysteries a millennium from now where people can use psychic powers called “Cantus” as part of their everyday life.
This utopia/dystopian anime can defeat modern dystopian movies like The Hunger Games and Maze Runner when it comes to mystery and horror.
This Sci-fi crime and justice anime will be perfect on the big screen. It’ll spark an incredible amount of debate on government spying, control, what justice means for each country.
2.Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Don’t be fooled by the title. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is definitely not for kids, not only because it has explicit themes but also the dark storyline. The anime shines in visual effects and fight scenes which can be beyond epic in theaters.
Imagine all that alchemy on the big screen. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is currently #1 on the MyAnimeList rankings and one of the most memorable animes of this generation. It really deserves a good live-action adaptation. A trilogy could wrap up the entire 64 episodes.
