For this list we’re looking at hollywood and Japanese movies that were either terrible anime adaptations or just had no reason to exist! From Netflix adaptations to Major productions by James Cameron, this list is going to look at upcoming and already released cinema that takes inspiration from Japanese animation and manga. Some of these are hated, some of them are loved, but one thing’s for sure – nobody wanted to watch them.

  1. My thoughts:
    10) I liked it. Sure it wasn’t perfect, but it’s an enjoyable action film.
    9) Never seen it.
    8) I heard that one was pretty good. I thought the original series was okay, so I might watch it sometime in the future.
    7) Never seen it.
    6) A complete bore to sit through. Not even Sam L. Jackson can save this one.
    5) One of the worst movies I’ve seen to come out of 2017.
    4) Easily the worst movie I’ve seen in 2009. And one of the worst movies I’ve seen, period.
    3) I have no words to react to this…
    2) Eh, it’s okay.
    1) Not sure how to think about this.

  2. I thought the live action speed racer was good, and it did remain me of the anime show, so I think they did it right
