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

I haven’t seen the movie so I can’t speak for it, but in the cartoon series the pattern seems to be:
Fire Nation – Japan
Earth kingdom – China
Water Tribe – Inuits (eskimos)
Air Nomads – Tibetan monks

    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…

    Couldn’t they just add the 3 new characters with a patch? It seems like a lot of money just to play the same game. All the backgrounds are the same, the sprites aren’t enhanced, and all I can hope is that Ignition softens up Kirito who is OPed like crazy.

  • Feminists Deny Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Western Release:
    And that’s the whole problem with denying DOAX 3 a release. Men are allowed to be topless and women are fined for indecency if they go topless is reasonable. Then turning around and using this argument to say “DOAX 3 should not be released because they’re in skimpy outfits and showing off their bodies” boils down to “they’re too pretty! They’re just fetish material for ronery gamers! BURN IT!” Sex-positive feminism is where it’s at, but it’d be easier if those people were just woman enough to …

  • Shomin Sample Gets Romantic:
    Oh right, there was that plot point… I wonder if it will actually affect anything because so far it has just seemed like a needless repetitive comedy routine.

  • Shomin Sample Gets Romantic:
    Most likely saved for the possible second season. But I guess the BD sales will decide that…

  • Shomin Sample Gets Romantic:
    Doubtful, not much vision impairing steam or lights. Pretty sure they’ll improve the animation a bit and make the underwear and other crotch scenes a little more detailed but I doubt there will be nipples…
