Anime fanswould surely love 2017 because there are tons of upcoming Anime Live Action movies this 2017.  We summarize some of the upcoming live action movies which we had so far got knowledge about so that you can prepare for it.  We are hoping that all of them will also be shown in the Philippines.


This is perhaps one of the famous new anime which had received much publicity.  Tokyo Ghoul live action will feature Masataka Kubota as Ken Kaneki and Fumika Shimizu as Tōka Kirishima.  The film is scheduled to be released in Japan in the Summer of 2017.

Other cast members includes Yū Aoi as Rize Kamishiro, Nobuyuki Suzuki (ja) as Kōtarō Amon, and  Yo Oizumi as Kureo Mado.  The film is directed by Kentarō Hagiwara.


 Meet Saki Miyanaga, a first year high school student who gets lured into the competitive world of mahjong by her fellow student, Nodoka Haramura.  This manga and 25-episode anime will be having its live action movie adaptation and release in Japan on February 3, 2017.

If you had awesome fan watching Gintama anime then we are hoping that you will have tons of fun as well in this live action movie adaptation.  Warner Bros Pictures will be releasing it this 2017 in Japan although there is no exact date yet. Shun Oguri plays Gintoki Sakata while Kanna Hashimoto plays Kagura.  Will it be as fun as the anime?  Let us see.


We have high hopes for this American adaptation of one of the most popular anime, Ghost in the Shell.  The film is directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Jonathan Herman and Jamie Moss.  Scarlett Johansson, a famous Hollywood celebrity will be playing the lead role of The Major.  It also stars Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche and Michael Pitt.

Ghost In The Shell live action movie is set for release on March 31, 2017 in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.


Another manga series which will be having its very own live action movie adaptation is Hirunaka no Ryūsei (ひるなかの流星?).  It is about a typical girl, Suzume Yosano who begins his hourney as a first year high school student in Tokyo after her parents decided to move there from Bangladesh.

Hirunaka No Ryusei live action is directed by Takehiko Shinjō, written by Naoko Adachi, starring Mei Nagano, Shohei Miura and Alan Shirahama.  It will be released in Japan on March 24, 2017.


Although I would not really give you high hopes in this one since the plan for this movie is up since 2007and this is also an American adaptation.  This Hiollywood adaptation of Death Note is directed by Adam Wingard and will star Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, Keith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi, Shea Whigham, and Willem Dafoe.

Will it be as good as we expected of a Death Note live action movie?  We still have to see this.


Officially being released in Japan on February 18, 2017, One Week Friends will be another anime-manga that will be joining our line up this year.  The film is about a high schooler, Yūki Hase  who notices that his classmate Kaori Fujimiya is always alone and seemingly has no friends. He soon realize that his new friend loses her memory every Monday but despite of that decides to continue to befriend her.  Wow!  That was one interesting story and I am sold.

The live action adaptation is directed by Shōsuke Murakami and starring Haruna Kawaguchi and Kento Yamazaki.


A manga-anime live action movie adaptation which will be released in Japan on February 25, 2017.  The movie stars Taishi Nakagawa and Marie Iitoyo. Movie is based on manga series “Kyo no Kira kun” by Rin Mikimoto and directed by Yasuhiro Kawamura.
