Hollywood’s allure has always been strong and a lot of people really want to see some of their favorite anime and manga adapted into a major Hollywood motion picture.

Sure, Dragon Ball Evolution was just plain awful and some people are still not sure on how to react to the Bleach and Evangelion Hollywood movies but the allure of Hollywood is just so strong that people would still want to see some anime adapted into the big screen by Hollywood.

There you have it, Lupin III steals his way to the top spot via a landslide. Its cat-and-mouse appeal would certainly make a great Hollywood film. The finished product could look like the movie Catch Me If You Can or even a James Bond movie.

One Piece also has a lot of great Hollywood potential and its great characters and awesome story line would make a great Hollywood movie. Detective Conan may have a Sherlock Holmes vibe and it can most certainly pull in the mystery genre crowd as well.

One movie which made it to the top ten already has a Hollywood movie announced. Only problem? Its Hollywood adaptation is still in production limbo. Three guesses on which series that is!

… …

If you guessed Neon Genesis Evangelion, you are absolutely correct! The movie is still being debated on and it has clearly divided the fans who want to see a live-action movie and those who don’t.

Other movies would also make good Hollywood flicks. My Neighbor Totoro and Mobile Suit Gundam have massive fan bases in America so a Hollywood adaptation wouldn’t be surprising and Slam Dunk has the elements of a great sports flick. All in all, the anime and manga series that made it to this list would make great Hollywood movies, however, they would need a great director, a great script, good actors and of course, if a Hollywood adaptation would come for these movies, they would need to be true to the original.

Do you agree with Goo’s list?
