The popularity of a franchise is not a guarantee that a live action adaptation will be well received by fans. On the contrary, fans generally expect more from a more known franchise and this is why adapting a popular manga and anime franchise like "Fullmetal Alchemist" has been a sensitive issue among manga and anime fans throughout the world. While the original elements of the franchise are often hard to translate from the comic books and animation to the big screen, some productions have received criticism for completely deviating from the franchise and losing the essence of the show altogether.
Most recently, fans participated in a survey to determine the worst live action adaptation made and "Attack on Titan" topped the list, followed by "Black Butler," "Lupin III," "KochiKame The Movie," T"erra Formars," "Space Battleship Yamato," "Devilman," "Gatchaman," "Your Lie in April" and "Wolf Girl and Black Prince." "Dragonball Evolution" and "Avatar: The Last Airbender" are also widely panned to be the worst live action adaptations produced.
