The universal loathing the Haganai movie has attracted from fans and even the creator of the franchise himself looks only to have deepened with the release of more promotional shots of the cast – and Yukimura and Rika fans in particular, although it looks as if staff are saving the worst for Sena’s admirers…


The movie’s 2014 spring release is likely to prove a dark day for fans – most of whom seem to scratching their head as to how such projects ever get greenlighted in the first place.

    Why did they make Rika an ugly horse-faced thing? :/

    Because someone in the Marketing department, presumably having never heard the phrase "Fist Of The North Star" before, thought it would be a good idea to make a live-action movie based on an anime franchise.

    I don't get why people get all riled up by stuff. It's not like we're losing something because of this movie. If you don't like it, don't watch it. Problem solved. Just enjoy the stuff you like and spare yourself the stress over stuff you don't.

    Because when they do, they may claim the liscense of it. If somebody wanted to do it justice, they couldn't unless it was a free web movie or something. In other words, if they fuck it up, it may always be fucked up, and nobody would be allowed to do it better.

    Anime almost never translates well into live action.
    Even when it is successful there's still that B movie kinda feel to it.

    It gets worse Sena is neither blonde nor particularly busty.

    All this uproar...but the anime itself was incredibely boring & predictable. So what if they make a lousy movie about it?

    I find it quite interesting. Haganai is no masterpiece, but the art is very beautiful and the character.. was alright.

    Nothing special, but it will make a good anime to watch, passing time when there is nothing to do.

    Lousy movie, bah! If you tossed that shit in the toilet, it'll spit it back at you. GET KIDS TO PLAY KIDS!!! At least 18-25 yo, they all look younger at that age range anyway, not 40!!!

    I don't see what's wrong here, especially when you guys praise some piss poor garbage anime in a daily basis. And the guy/girl casted for Yukimura is particularly good, I can't even tell if he's a guy or a girl.

    Those actresses don't look that bad too me.
    They don't look much like the characters but that's to be expected: The characters are kids & the actresses are adults; the characters are 2D animations & the actresses are 3D real-life objects. There's a limit to how much one can resemble the other.

    They don't have to be perfect resemblance to it, but one looks like a boy and the other actually looks unattractive (a Japanese girl, UNATTRACTIVE!!!). You can easily find cosplayers who can do it justice. However, they probably care more about the acting, which matters a lot, but the looks is part of what the franchise is.

    you can at least expect sena to have blonde hair . . but from what i've seen, even that's not happening.

    Well they can at least try to choose people who look similar or use makeup to make them look similar.

    How much can you expect from 3D? Attempts to teenage actors in their 20s are slim to begin with; wardrobe did fine.

    Just one more reminder that live-actions are cash-ins, forgettable at best, cringespawn at worst.

    Okay, all the "she's ugly" comments aside. Think for a minute about how these (obviously full adult) actresses will look saying the lines of this story.

    Fucking ridiculous. Live action FAIL.

    I remember watching the live-action adaptation of Love☆Com and becoming homicidal towards anyone wanting to make Anime into Live-Action. And now here's this shit.

    Seriously i'd fuck Rika's actor but she's still totally not suited for this movie role. Too old looking in my opinion.

    Yeah horrible. Can make alien costumes out of this world but they can't even Cosplay a proper character for the movie. They don't resemble in the least put a fake wig on them to give them the hair style. Find an appropriate actress that has a rounder face that one is too slim doesn't resemble her at all. Cosplayer's do better jobs than whoever is doing this movie!

    Hell they could even find the pretty face actors, doll them up, & sync them to voice actors - what the hell do they think anime is anyway.

    Oh wait a minute, that means they'll have to pay double the cast. We can't have that now.

    Yeah, cosplayers can do a better job than this. And why the hell don't they change the hair color?

    It's so damn stupid- I mean are they so close minded they don't want to even be bothered with suggesting that a character's hair might be pink instead of dark brown? Are they color blind?

    When you consider that anime characters don't look like human beings, it seems silly to complain that a human being doesn't look like an anime character.

    Aaah Japan .. you should have stayed with just making power ranger movies instead

    Because you keep dropping the ball when you use 3D actors in cosplay outfits when trying to remake a anime into a live action movie....

    Why don't they just try to make something original in stead of ripping off a anime ... oh yes now i remember.

    They are going with the "the anime made money so a 3d version will work too"

    They... Dropped .. the .. Ball..

    OK here is my 50 cents
    The plan would have worked IF they did it in reverse order ... First you made a Great movie or show with 3D actors.. And Then.. now here is the hard part..
    You make a Anime based version of the show ...
    Yes that's It..

    You would widen the fan base of that show by adding the anime fans (if the artists did their job correctly) and you wouldn't need to go looking for voice actors .... that means profit right ?

    They're probably aiming at a mainstream audience and don't give a rodent's derriere about your or any other otaku's opinion. The people they expect to see the film will know nothing of anime or manga and will accept it for its merits, if it has any.
