The live action and the anime seem to be inevitably connected by fate, despite the fact that strangely some production ends up coming out that adequately represents the original. Likewise, it must be said that the issue of live-action does not refer only to large production companies, but also there are also many fan projects that are formed over the years. What I bring you today is one of “jujutsu kaisen“which receives the official name of”Hood Jujutsu Kaisen“.
This live-action fan of Jujutsu Kaisen seems to have convinced more than one fan
In case you want to go take a look at it directly I leave it below. Otherwise, after the video I will comment on four things about this live-action fan of “Jujutsu Kaisen” that I really find interesting.
And now the little things that I have told you that I had to comment on this:
- Why the name Hood Jujutsu Kaisen? to start because it is not a 1:1 recreation of the anime as such. It is basically a mixture of different scenes from season 1 and also with original moments, some quite funny I must say. ❗
- Many of the project participants are actually professional cosplayers. Without going further, Some time ago I rescued Leonchiro’s Nanami, which you can see precisely in this live-action. ✔️
- This live-action Jujutsu Kaisen movie actually debuted at Crunchyroll Expo and Dream Con, with both events giving permission for it to be officially broadcast. A nice gesture really seeing the fan work behind everything. ✔️
- In approximately one week, Hood Jujutsu Kaisen already has more than 260 thousand views on YouTube. Not only that, but the comments section is full of positive mentions… and the occasional ‘pigtail’ to the current Netflix live-action.
Are there things that could be better from live-action? Well, obviously, in the end we are always talking about productions that adapt completely absurd fantasy works, and that in this case also (again) have a logically quite limited budget. However, the fact that so many people are showing him love seems to me to be a clear reflection that, more than money, what is really lacking in these live-actions is true interest in the work, and not for the simple economic potential it may have.
