      IMHO, this episode seems to the most "Japanese" of the entire series.
      So much so, that it would be impossible to re-do it in a North American
      setting for the live-action series.

      But this could be an opportunity for a genre "spoof" episode. For this
      one episode, they would re-cast the ensemble with all Asian actors, and
      throw in every Asian action movie cliche they could think of -
      Exaggerated fight-scene sound effects, Power Ranger-style pyrotechnics,
      dramatic camera zooms, bad American dubbing where the lips don't match
      the dialogue - and all to create a sort of Sentai Ranger/Mortal Kombat
      the Series/What's Up, Tiger Lilly madhouse episode, with the director &
      Kirsten Storms - the actress who plays Serena - doing humorous running
      commentary at opportune moments.
