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.

    People are bitching about Hollywood putting white actors in anime and manga roles. Don’t the Japanese do the same thing in the manga and anime. Hardly ever see any “Asian” looking characters. They all look western to me.

    firenation’s building look like thailand while airbender clothes somehow resemble Himalayan monk Waterbender looks like ainu tribe from japanese and earthbender is chinese

  • George Takei to Hollywood: “Quit Whitewashing Anime”:
    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…

    If given the choice between a hot woman with huge tits and a 2D girl on a computer screen, I can assure you that even most faithful Otaku here would go for the tits.

  • Umbrella Corps Gameplay PV “Nothing Like Resident Evil!”:
    Resident Evil 4 had more tension in it than the other Resident Evil games that came out since. Remember those villagers and the crazy bag head guy with the chainsaw? Remember fucking up and having them form a lynch mob to kill yo ass? The way they climb through the windows and generally do everything possible to get in that building and kill you?

  • Atelier Sophie Trailer Cuter Than Ever:
    Because Atelier games sell like shit in Japan so they put no effort into them. They really should invent a new franchise and hope it attracts an audience. Seriously, look at the first week sales for an average Atelier title in Japan, they’re embarrassing.

    lol Disney was going to make a KH cartoon, but it was scrapped, so your “Disney won’t let it happen” is wrong. The story of Kingdom Hearts is not for kids, said by the creator, Tetsuya Nomura, himself. KH1, KH2, and Birth by Sleep, originally going to be on PS2, but Re:COM delayed it. Formerly known as Episode 0/KH0, but is now 0.1 due to X[Chi](the new 0) is another KH game worth playing. All the games are important even if you don’t want to play them.
