Comment on George Takei to Hollywood: “Quit Whitewashing Anime” by Anonymous:

It flopped because not a single one of the actors have seen the actual series. You just can’t capture it in film if you don’t know what you’re doing.

    I don’t think The Last Airbender flopped because it had a white cast. Anime in general doesn’t feature Japanese-looking characters, and The Last Airbender wasn’t a particularly Asian story as much as it was a universal one. If I had to pick a reason it flopped, it would be because in so many ways it missed the point of the “anime” (or American cartoon in the style of anime, if you prefer).

    PROTIP: both of those are Shinkansen. Even the colours are mostly correct. So again, why the pointless redraw, unless someone put in the wrong train for the *location* or JR East/JR West lines, whereever the show actually takes place. Correcting THAT would be ridiculously anal but I wouldn’t put it past the Japanese.
