OP Up! - Adapted Drama Edition

0

Anime or Live Action

Most of the anime we watch are usually adapted from either manga or novels but sometimes manga or novels get the occasional live action adaptation. However, some get multiple forms of adaptations and usually are changed for the better or worse to suit the format or medium that they're being adapted into. I've seen my fair share and the results are varied, some surpass the original and some lose their way or even take their own path. Some get a second chance, like say Yozakura Quartet, and some never even get a chance at all like Yotsuba&!.

This week's selection of anime openings (and endings this weekend) is all about anime adaptations that also have live action adaptations.

Is there an anime adaptation that you love over the source material or other adaptations? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

"Kimi ni todoke"

Anime: Kimi ni todoke

Here's a show that I really love that is so beautifully made in both visual and sound. The voice acting really captured the heroine's character really well and the opening is just sooooo charming.

 

"Dramatic"

Anime: Honey and Clover

This show is one of my all time favorites and I still love it to this day. So when I heard it had a TV drama adaptation, I was overjoyed. Until I watched it and how it just changed a bunch of how the characters were and elements of the story that it didn't feel the same as the manga and anime. The anime has great music and visual so check it out if you loved the manga.

 

"Allegro Cantabile Sound"

Anime: Nodame Cantabile

If there was ever a perfect adaptation of a manga (and even anime), it would be the live action Nodame Cantabile drama. The drama version had the entire story from the manga, and even captured the slapstick comedy that was present in anime. It had the music too, and while the anime had it too, you got to see musicians "performing" the pieces themselves instead of a static picture. Both the anime and drama are indeed worth watching.

 

"Honto no Kotoba (My Real Word)"

Anime: Gokusen

This manga not only got one season for the drama, but got two more and a TV special. I loved the first season but then the second season just felt like a rehash with an entirely pretty boy cast instead of the colorful variety that was in the original show. I never really watched the anime but I think it had a dog in it that wasn't in the drama.

 

"Ai no prison"

Anime: Prison School

This is one property I never though would ever get a live action adaptation, let alone an anime. But lo and behold, it got both. The anime looked great from the little I saw and I only saw a little bit of the live action show too and it looked okay. I can't wait to see both when I have time.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
