On HnR becoming an anime or live-action - L and J's Commentary on the possibility

There were so many questions about HnR being turned into an anime or live-action been thrown at us for months. L and I actually talked about this when we finish translating the last chapter and we ended up having a full blown conversation about the possibilities. This is how it went down…there’s a bit of commentary on the Japanese entertainment industry just to enhance our opinions. 

Note: This piece is just our opinion from being consumers of Japanese entertainment for several years. So please don’t take this out of context.

L: Even though HnR ended, I still think the possibility of an anime adaptation or live-action is still on the table right?

J: For sure, it could happen. I think there’s definitely a more likelihood of HnR being turned into a live-action than an anime though.

L: Yeah me too! Judging by the recent boom of Japan turning shoujo mangas into dramas or movies.

J: Omg, there have been so many this year! 5 years ago, shoujo live-action adaptations were seriously a rarity. If we were lucky there would be like 2-3 dramas adapted and maybe a film every year?

L: Shoujo manga to live-action is seriously a hit-or-miss. They either do really well at the box office or flop really hard.

J: Shoujo films that really did well at the box office included names like Kimi ni Todoke ($18 mil), Bokura ga Ita ($20-$28 mil), Suki tte Ii Nayo ($10 mil). Those that flopped in recent years included L-DK ($3.5 mil), High School Debut ($3.2 mil) just to name a few…
