The North American manga publisher Tokyopop introduced its plans for a live-action adaptation of Yuji Shiozaki‘s Ikki Tousen fighting manga at its booth at the TIFFCOM film trade show in the Roppongi Hills in Tokyo on October 22. Tokyopop publishes the English version of this manga under the name Battle Vixens. The story is loosely based on the Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms Tokyopop‘s synopsis of the proposed remake described it as an adolescent comedy set on American college campuses, with the possibility of casting an Asian female in the lead role. and depicts provocatively dressed girls (and boys) from different high schools that fight each other. A second draft of the live-action project’s story treatment has been completed.

The company’s TIFFCOM presentation also highlighted previously revealed plans for live-action adaptations of Kei Toume‘s Lament of the Lamb and Misaho Kujiradou‘s Princess Ai manga. The creative management firm William Morris Agency is representing Tokyopop in its negotiations to bring these proposals to reality.

Eh…heh heh heh. I’ve never watch Ikki Tousen myself, but I had a buddy who glorified it as a big ol’ fat fanservice anime like Tenjo Tenge. Good lawd, who doesn’t like panty shots and ass kicking all in the same anime right?

Even as a girl I can appreciate this to some extent (I’m a bit of an odd girl, you see.)

I like live action things too. In my Ikki Tousen I expect things like


And This,

And of course, it must include this,

I will enjoy my softcore porn drama with asian chicks…I mean >_>
I will enjoy Ikki Tousen live action when it comes out.
(Actually I probably won’t watch it, but still.)
