Obviously, the game show organizers wouldn't be giving out a million dollars, but otherwise the rules would be pretty much the same. Here's a brief rundown of my idea:

1. Show organizers will audition both the contestants and the models earlier in the day of the show.
2. Models will be female cosplayers (of any anime or manga), and uniformity is not important.
3. Instead of money, organizers will give out prizes equivalent to increasing dollar amounts (i.e. $1, $5, $10, etc.), with the top prize worth $1000.
4. To avoid trademark/copyright infringement, we could use the Japanese name of Deal or No Deal, and perhaps convert the dollar amounts into yen.
5. If the contestant accepts a dollar/yen amount offered by the banker, the organizers will round it up to the next closest board amount when handing out the prize.

So, what do you think? If anyone from the programming staff is interested in this, I can submit a more detailed proposal via PM.

I'd be interested in it. But I'd be more interested if we weren't fronting that kind of money. The event is really fun, I watch it on TV a lot, it's just can you really put an equivilent in anime? probably not. I'd be glad to see a proposal in my inbox about this.
The only way I see it working is by getting some form of corporate sponsorship...

Instead of cash you could play for dealer dollars good at any booth in the dealer's room.

Different prizes could be used instead of cash, different mangas and DVDs of varying values. The top prize would be a fan favorite, you know from a show like Fullmetal Alchemist, maybe something signed by some of the cast members depending who is at th convention.

The problem would be making it all work. How would you get enough people to hold the briefcases? And if you used a computer program, would there be too many glitches.

If you could make it work it could be really cool though,

hmmm this would be an excellent Idea... especially if you could get a company to sponsor it.

I'm sure a lot of people would come to see it and the company could have a big sign throughout the entire game. You could mention "Anime Deal or No Deal Sponsored by...." The hard thing would really be getting a company. There would be a lot of oportunities though, they could give out t-shirts for the company instead of the $25 or something advertising their company for the low amounts. Then the higher ones would be anime, manga, such and such. It'd be big publicity for said company. Maybe they could find someone to sponsor it.

I'm sure tons of girls in cosplay would be willing to stand there and open a case. I know I would. It'd be easy and amusing. Plus you'd be more involved in the game than just watching it.

To be a contestant could be a drawing too. That'd be cool. Buy tickets and the person (or couple of people) chosen from the random drawing get to be contestants.

Just some random ideas. Heh.
