Theres a LiveAction Adaptation of JinRoh The Wolf Brigade And it Looks
Stay on target ‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting…Casio G-SHOCK Unveils ‘Akira’-Inspired ‘Neo Tokyo̵… Are live-action anime movies getting better? If you take Netflix’s travesty that was Death Note into account, not at all. But it looks like there’s a new movie coming up that might very well help break the curse of translating anime movies into their live-action counterparts. And after being fed tripe like Ghost in the Shell, we all need a little bit of hope in our lives when it comes to anime breaking into the real world. I am not looking forward to that Hollywood Your Name remake, folks.It looks like the next anime to get an adaptation is the Jin-Roh film, which is based on the 1999 anime version of Mamoru Oshii’s manga series Kerberos. It was actually announced six years ago back in 2012, so it’s had plenty of time to stew, but now it looks like it’s coming out this summer in South Korea from Kim Jee-Woon in the director’s seat. He worked alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger on The Last Stand, and that was pretty decent, and as far as we can tell this new look at the movie looks pretty fantastic.Jin-Roh takes place in a parallel world in 1950s Japan, where Germany has occupied the country. It follows Kazuki Fuse, a member of the Kerberos Panzer Corps, who decides he’s going to not shoot a young female terrorist. Instead, she kills herself, and the unit’s reputation is tarnished. He meets with the dead girl’s sister, who is more involved than Fuse thinks at first, and things spiral out of control as he meets up with the deep-cover unit of the Wolf Brigade. It’s a little hard to follow, but if you haven’t seen it, it’s absolutely excellent.As far as the movie, well, we don’t know if there’ll be an international release just yet, but it sure would be cool if there was. That looks like a quality film adaptation, right there.All in all, it seems like we could be seeing better quality live-action anime films, right? Does it seem like that to you? Oh, never mind. I just thought about Fullmetal Alchemist. I’m going to need some time to process all this.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
