In general I'd go along with that, but that are some that I'd like to see and could still work with Americanisation, like Baccano or Black Lagoon.

Looking at a list of American live-action manga adaptations though, it's a pretty sad track record. I totally forgot The Guyver and Fist of the North Star got adapted into live action.

My one gripe with the first movie is the lack of a good soundtrack. I hope they've corrected it in this one. I'm also glad they made 2 whole movies instead of compressing the entire plot into one.

If we could have multiple people play James Bond or Sherlock Holmes, we can have more than one guy play the Terminator, right? Arnold will be 71 in 2018.
