Remember the cloud/ kadaj battle? too damn fast and clumsy looking.. So many moves are ommitted. almost as if there's no life to it.... Sure the shining swords and the rest of the superb graphics made up for it, but still....
I'd say that was a side-effect of their animation style more than just the fact that it is 3d CG. A large portion of battles and stuff you see in live-action movies is pure CG and often times you never even notice. CG can do anything and look as good as anything if enough time is put into it. There are no limitations on animation style, quality, or anything. If they can't use motion capture for something then they just switch to key-frame animation...no problem. Even the perspective and proportion effects you are talking about can be easily simulated.

Ok, I'm going off into a corner to dream about 3d Claymore now tyvm

IMO Sarah hardly fits any of the known Claymores but she definitely qualify as a Claymore.

Only freaks have anime size eyes! Any bigger and Sarah would look like an alien. How often do you see people with mouths smaller then their nose in length? Anime features are exaggerated, it's hard to get an exact match but I think she has enough characteristics.

Hahaha.

Flora is feminine cute looking. Sarah is feminine alright but not cute and while Heather Graham is also not cute but she seems perfectly fit as a Flora.

Yes, I edited after noticing that Sarah's eyes are actually pretty much large for a real human, but the shape of the face still isn't quite right.

FaceSmasher pretty much said it: Sarah isn't cute enough. Regardless of exact feature matches, the main thing to consider when converting from anime to Live Action is the over all facial impression. Flora's is one of cuteness.

And yeah, I've seen people with same-size noses but smaller mouth.

I surrender but who cares about Flora anyway? She hardly had enough screentime!

Not me. I don't have specific criteria to classify someone as cute or not I just look and decide but probably if I put some efforts I might come with the specifications

You see since most of our claymore girls are hard to match with girls IRL, a CG movie would just make up for that.

I dont think a CG Claymore would work anyways. It has to be a live action series. There's too much story to fit into a single movie. It will end up as bad as FF advent children in terms of story.

Besides, this is the Live Action thread! BOO CG! its cheatn'n!

Video game, lolz...erm...that's fine too. (Ahahahahaha! Live action video game?! That'll be the day )

But Sass, in that case, there is no way any of these actors would work. Let alone trying to get all of them together in a single movie. Budget would go through the roof. Not even massive box office hits get this many big names in one movie, TV mini-series usually don't get even a single one

Not to mention any american-made production of Claymore would suck so badly, and most or all of the actresses listed so far have been hollywood connected.

A CG Claymore not only has a far higher chance of getting made, it also would look far more accurate and appropriate...not to mention awesome. Personally I PREFER Animated or CG to live action hands down. It's easier for me to connect to characters that aren't portrayed by a real person for some reason.

Oceans 11! You don't have to cast all famous people and there's always shortcuts . How about cardboard box ABS? Besides characters like Sarah would just show up 1 ep and get killed. Goodbye!

Oh I agree a CG would definitely be better if it's for a movie but the story would suffer tremedously IE advent children.

Ive already said 90ish percent of the anime/video game movie is crap so I agree the chances of a live action claymore turning into crap is really high. This is mainly a fun thread and not a reality thread. Doing it in CG would be too easy and defeat the purpose of us trying to cast bad actors.



Chiba: Good luck convincing NSW for a video game claymore thread

Amen to that!

Agreed. Not only I would shiver and faint at the sight of an overacted scene with my favorite Claymore being put to the ground by a wanna-look-bad-ass-but-phail-at-it actress, I will probably die from diarrhea.
Look at Resident Evil or Silent Hill. Both were sabotaged in their movies by poor acting. Generally any adoption between Game/Anime<->Live Action Movie is bad so it has to be done with caution or else it's ruined.

It doesn't have to be from the original plot or it can take some of the extra scenes or whatever. Fitting the whole Claymore story in a movie is almost impossible no doubt. Oh and I wont be arguing about FFAC story being bad or not since it doesn't belong here but let me keep it at "I disagree"

You have a point.. that's why I am still waiting for Teresa and Galatea to show up!
Man, if I had some 3D designing skills, I would do some 3D Claymores.

Actually, a video game claymore was discussed in one of those scattered general claymore discussion.. I will look for it.

I guess you're thinking of a cg movie to satisfy Claymore fans only while I'm thinking of a story that would make sense to the masses.

None of the extra scenes are good nor long enough to be made into a movie.

Um, um...I get all your points, and I suppose we should move back towards original topic now, but... Why does CG Claymore have to be a single movie? I don't see any reason why it can't be a full length TV series.
Probably would even be cheaper to produce than Live Action

I'm still googling over the idea of spectacular 3D awakened beings. I imagine their organic designs constantly moving in ways that are impossible to capture with anime. Like Isley's wings stretching and moving to balance him, Luciella's tails twisting around her, and so on... I think the transformations would be extremely interesting especially as their human form peels away. And in 3D some of the AB's could be so ... shiny. They could have reflections of their environment around them and everything. Especially Alicia's jet black form.

Not to mention Agatha's tendrils viciously attacking those around her while she yawns on the center of her platform, bored.
