If you’re a fan of shoujo manga or anime, then you’re probably a fan of their live-action movie counterparts. Or maybe you prefer the original manga version. Whatever the case, you’ve most likely seen a live-action movie, and to brush you up on what that term means, it’s a Japanese film with real actors/actresses and settings versus an animated adaption. Over the years, live-action movies that are based off of shoujo manga or anime have become increasingly popular, and there are usually a handful of them premiering every year. Unfortunately, only those who live in Japan can actually see these films in theaters, and until the films come out on DVD for order, international folks will have to wait a while to see them. In the mean time, for those of you who want to find out which shoujo manga or anime have turned into live-action films, look no further. Below you will discover which ones have been released or will release in the upcoming year.
