So i saw ppl being angry about the upcoming Anime movies e.g GHOST IN THE SHELL...

Scarlett Johansson is going to play the role as Motoko Kusanagi and actually: i think thats really good.
I think everyone knows how bad “The Last Airbender” and “Dragonball” were as an american movie production.
But seriously - Scarlett Johansson. They just can’t mess it up.
And honestly i don’t think japanese actors would do a better job.
What about the Shingeki movie? Wouldn’t western ppl be a better choice too?

Every western non-anime fan is going to watch this movie because Scarlett Johansson is playing in there and they’ll think “omg this movie is so awesome! I love the story sooo much! Let’s google this!”
And then they’ll find out that this is actually an anime and they realize “hmm maybe anime isn’t that bad at all.”

So THIS is more important to me
And the fact that my favorite actress is going to play the protagonist of my favorite anime.
Eat this

Life perpetuates itself through diversity, and this includes the ability to sacrifice itself when necessary. Cells repeat the process of degeneration and regeneration until one day they die, obliterating an entire set of memory and information. Only genes remain. Why continually repeat this cycle? Simply to survive by avoiding the weaknesses of an unchanging system.
—  Puppet Master (Ghost in the Shell)

Ghost in the Shell is such a big influence on me it’s not even funny. Like, first, it’s a gorgeous movie and a lovesong to urban landscape and technology. I dig the ideas, but it’s also very meandering - it’s a thing with the director. Oshii does like, really funny comedy (I recommend Urusei Yatsura, despite hating a lot of it’s tropes) and really meandering serious movies.

Still, GitS, so good!

And totally the main reason why I John-Atlantis is even a thing in my brain, ugh.

1, 6 and 27!

1. first anime you ever watched

i remembering answering this before and i still dont actually remember what the very first one i watched was, i have just fragments of memories from when i was very young but excluding that i believe it is speed racer (also when i was little, i could be wrong here, its hard for me to remember stuff from that young)

6. popular anime you didn’t like

wasnt a fan of mirai nikki, dont think i‘ll ever go back to it, i didnt like ergo proxy when i initially watched it but that was before i was really into any anime so i will eventually try it out again

27. anime you plan to watch in the future 

lots! half myanimelist is plan to watch but the ones im probably most looking forward are is eva 3.0 +1.0 and the new gits arise movie

The Pyrophoric Cult episodes ended pretty good. I don’t know how the new GitS movie is going to play out but the PV looks great.
