White washing (according to tumblr)
I can’t believe that they choose a non-japanese person to play the role of literally a brain in a synthetic body.
Look how it is in the anime. How obvious it is that this character is japanese. You can tell at first sight that this brain is japanese and all japanese brain should be inside a japanese body because japanese and americans brains are completely different and can’t be inside different races bodies. This is 100% facts and not me being racist.
The original movie is also very clear that the story happens in japan and not in a random city from a fully globalized world where countries or races doesn’t mean shit anymore. According to the original movie’s opening race-war is going on against Japan and everything in the story is 100% Japan related.
In the 2017 movie they even chose a Japanese actor for Makoto’s mom, changed the opening scene Ambassador for an African Ambassador and some more Japanese actors for multiple members of section 9 for even less diversity.
Not only they chose a Japanese actor for Daisuke Aramaki, but he also only speek japanese during the whole movie. Disgusting.
Ghost in the shell is white-washing, don’t even watch it to make yourself an opinion !
In before, people that can’t understand Irony.
