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

He’s missing the point entirely. Akira had a grungy, dirty, and gritty feel to it. Almost no one in that movie was handsome or pretty. They’re going to make a post apocalyptic world look pretty.

    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). The Fire Nation was played by Indian actors, all of whom overacted their parts and came off as …

    I hated that George took away a straight role from a straight person. They should have cast Sulu better and gotten someone that didn’t predominately suck cock. George should only be allowed to play gay roles. See what I did there… Idiots…

    “Another example would be Jesus, that somehow is portrayed as a snow white caucasian man, even though he was a jew and likely quite brown if he would have existed.” Yeah, apparently you know very little about historical sources.

    “21:52 – you nailed it. That’s part of the human condition. We humans have always feared what we don’t understand.” And by that do you mean it’s possible to also fear things one understands, or is fear only based on misunderstanding? You know like those people running away from Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge – were they not understanding him? Should they too have remained and added to the skull collections over there?

    AoT was a damn good show. But I will agree with everyone that it was way overhyped

  • No Game No Life Bouncy Bathing Anime:
    The issue isnt about the fact that the boobs jiggle or even the unnatural way that they jiggle, its that they’re jiggling for NO REASON. she’s just standing there?? this is why people think otaku are infantile and childish – don’t you guys feel insulted by shit like this in anime? I know I do, and I like fanservice as much as the next guy. But whenever someone gives me ‘that’ look for finding out I like anime (you know the one) …this is the reason why. And I understand it completely.

    Well, Attack on Titan IS overhyped garbage that hopefully everyone will have forgotten by next year, but this show is still shit.
