Which upcoming western made live action adaptation has the best shot at pulling it off?

So last night I started watching Scorching Ping Pong Girls and it is actually pretty good so far? I like the entire main cast as of now; the matches are intense; and the soundtrack is extremely good. There's still plenty of episodes left for it to wear out its welcome if it can't bring anything new to the table as it goes on, but for now I'm having a lot of fun with it.

Reminds me a bit of Saki so far which I think used to be pretty popular here?
Oh woops. Putting Advokaiser in my sig like this until I think of something more clever

My gut instinct was wrongly telling me that it would be bad!

I can't believe anyone thinks live action one piece would be a good idea.

I still haven’t gotten around to checking a lot of new shows out. I dunno why, but I’m not really super excited about most of them. I’ll watch Haikyuu and Bofuri, but I dunno what else

We're a month in, so my ranking and stances on the shows have pretty much settled. In order, best to worst, just stuff in still watching:

Eizouken - not much really needs to be said about this one, it's just an absolute joy to experience. Glad to see it caught on in a big way and has established it's popularity.

Smile Down the Runway - big surprise hit of the season. Pacing is fantastic, constantly avoiding annoying story tropes for it's genre, never in a million years would I have expected this show to not only be good, but super exciting to boot.

Railgun: Would have put this below Bofuri before this episode, but MAN am I ever sucked back into the show after today's airing. Railgun manages to knock all of it's pillars out of the park, and I continue to be engrossed in it's twisting narrative and characters, even though I'm surely missing huge chunks of the context having watched nothing outside of this series line.

Bofuri - another surprise, I was totally fine with the fun times of the first episode, and those continue in droves. But we also get great and varied action scenes that actually have me engaged and look great to boot, even if the stark contrast in animation makes it look like other studios got their hands in it, which is likely actually true.

In/Spectre - Brains Base finally bacame a real studio putting out anime people care about again. Still hard to tell exactly what direction this show is gonna go, but now that we're out of the "prologue" and into the meat of it all, seems like this will be a fun show with sone 00's feel.

22/7 - I fear this will just end up as another idol show, but the intrigue is strong so far, and I'm pretty engrossed in seeing where it goes. Characters make great first impressions.

Haikyu - wierd to rank since this is a cool down arc launching after a multi year hiatus and few of this series strengths are on display yet. I don't have any doubt they will once things get rolling, so this rank placement is pretty pointless.

Science Fell in Love - We thankfully have one romantic comedy to tide us until Kaguya returns, and while this isn't anything ground breaking, it takes a unique twist on things with the science angle and keeps a smile on my face throughout. Gonna be some strong contendor in this one for Best Couple this year.

ID: Invaded - all the ingredients are here, it's just not really coming together yet. We're 5 episodes in and it feels like it's only now attempted to actually get a narrative going, though hindsite may be 2020 on this one in the future, who knows. It needs to get itself in gear.

Magia Record - Basically the same feelings I have toward Invaded, but I don't think this is gonna pick up. They nailed everything they needed to nail in the production, there's just no way to make me give a s*** about this throwaway mobile game story and oversized one note gacha character cast. I hope the people behind this get recognized for how much successful effort they put into making this source material appear to have even some merit, because if it weren't nailing that it wouldn't be in this position, maybe not even still on the watch list.

Darwin's Game - thought I would have dropped this by now, but it's wacky and dumb enough that I can't pull away. Honestly it's not even bad, it's genuinely decent.

Somali - still a comfy journey with some overt sad themes and fantastic world building, but it's becoming clear that this going to be a drama light story unless things change. Still something in happy to watch, but it's not something that I'm EXCITED to watch.
