LOL!!!

your telling me,

It's like "You're under Arrest!" live version.

Watching cute girls in unconvincing police uniform driving at 5mph down an unexciting car chase isn't the same as the anime.

Don't think I remember any good live action anime shows...no wait.

Sailor Moon.

i like the You're Under Arrest drama. it was well made, and changed to fit it's medium as compared to the manga/anime. Would fast cars and the super high heel braking manuever been cool? yeah. but not on a drama budget.

Sailor Moon rocked after the actors got 10 episodes of experience under their belt.

I skimmed through them. The fight scenes are pretty cool. I mean they actually do look like real fight scenes and they actually do "hit". Her battle suit thing and her sword thing is really cool. But the only thing is there's this dark tinge to the entire episode that it's kind of annoying. You can't really see anything bright and clear. I'm not sure if I should continue watching.

Peace

Conan-san: I just wanted to do a little shout out/clarification. The actor playing peace has done a lot of stunt work in Japan on things like Kamen Riders and whatnot. He's from the US, but is half Japanese and speaks Japanese pretty fluently-- without the bad accent you see in the show. I'm assuming that one of the directors thought that a $hitty accent would somehow enhance the character...

Seems to fit just fine to me. It's not like anything he says makes much sense to start with, why not give it a bad accent, just to make it more nonsensical.

So, does anyone know where/if the a translated version of the Manga is available. Also curious if the Live Action comes to any kind of closure at the end... I hate being left hanging.

Heh, the fights dont look real since when they hit, nothing happens - they just stand up and continue to "hit". Looks like cheap asian action movie.

Plus characters act amazingly stupid. I watched it only cause 2 leading girls were cute :)

I agree tat the fight isn't at all impressive enough. When I was watching the 1st ep, I was a little confuse of the story line. Somehow I know saya yuki was playing the part as guy. But shouldn't they find a real guy acting as tsuyoshi? Beside she is a little shorter than those other girls. I always whenever I see them trying to hug tsuyoshi. As for the ending, i...
Spoiler:
dame I din read this manga too. Now after watching this live action, I'm thinking should I read the manga

I was checking out the torrent listings of Mecha Saiyuki I came across this show I was quite intrigued by the show checked up on links but to my avail found no proper synopsis just a screen shot the screen shot looked neat. So I though about watching this show

Really Dumb Q about the show : what’s this show about does it have too much drama in it I am not into too much drama the genre stated was Sci Fi so what’s this show about and would you say I should go for it ?
