It's a track record of Hollywood's shit writing when it comes to anime adaptations I'm more concerned with.

Attack on Titan live action was terrible

The cost to make the movie it that simple it's risky for the studios.

Ghost in the Shell- has a per episode budget of about $300K Gundam Seed$250K
as far as Ghost in the shell goes I will wait for it to go video eeh.

I just want someone who can act, which Scarlett Johansson cannot. Her career, in my experience, is just long shots of her buttocks and whatever skintight catsuit they get her to wear.

The Japanese view them as Japanese.

http://kotaku.com/5627268/why-do-japanese-characters-look-white

In a post titled "Why do the Japanese Draw Themselves as White?", blogger Julian Abagond argues that the Japanese do not draw themselves as white. Rather, Westerners (Abagond specifically says "Americans") think that they do.

"The Japanese see anime characters as being Japanese. It is Americans who think they are white," he writes. "Why? Because to them white is the Default Human Being."

Screw all the hate, I'm looking forward to it. If it turns out bad THEN I'll be disappointed. No point in hating something that hasn't even been released yet based on preconceptions. Too much skepticism isn't healthy.

I don't trust live actions, regardless of who they got, but hey Scarlett Johansson in tights is a win imo.

Glad their making a live action with a famous celebrity this time though, shedding light on the anime community

It saddens me how they try to make her look MORE Asian (apparently), which screams that they simply don't care. I have nothing against Scarlet however. I thought she look pretty good in that picture.

If the info in the image is intended to be the topic of the thread, your title could have reflected n it better.

We already have a thread about Scarlett Johansson as the Major, so I'm closing yours. Please share your thoughts there.
