6 Japanese Actresses who should play "Ghost in the Shell"

(My edit from article on Yahoo Style)

Rinko Kikuchi  -  (picture above)

The 35 year-old actress from Kanagawa famously became the first Japanese actress to be nominated for an Oscar in half a century ten years ago for Babel. More recently, she’s been in Norwegian Wood, Pacific Rim, and Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter.

Chiaki Kuriyama  -  (picture above)

The singer, actress, and model hasn’t worked much in America since breaking through as Gogo Yubari in Kill Bill: Volume 1, but that’s because the 31 year-old been busy starring on Japanese TV shows, appearing in films, and even releasing a music album.

Karen Fukuhara  -  (picture above)

You may not recognize her, but the 23 year-old Japanese-American actress (and UCLA grad) will be appearing as Katana in the summer’s upcoming David Ayer film Suicide Squad alongside Scott Eastwood, Will Smith, Jared Leto, and Ben Affleck.

Tao Okamoto  -  (picture above)

Fashion obsessives already know the 30 year-old model for her countless runway and editorial appearances for the likes of Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, and Ralph Lauren (not to mention the fact that she’s dating The Last Magazine co-founder Tenzin Wild), but the accomplished actress has also appeared in episodes of Hannibal and The Man in the High Castle.

Kiki Sukezane  -  (picture above)

Born and raised in Kyoto, 26 year-old Sukezane is actually the descendant of a long line of samurai, which explains the martial arts and swordsmanship skills she brings to her role as the video game fighter come to life on NBC’s Heroes Reborn.

Kimiko Glenn  -  (picture above)

With Japanese ancestry on her mother’s side, Glenn is of course most famous for her role as Brook Soso on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, but she’s also done appearances on Married, Law and Order: SVU (because who hasn’t?), and Broad City as the annoying cashier at Beacon’s Closet.




Just like others have said, me neither have any problem with Scarlett Johanson as an actress, also I was excited when they announced a film adaptation of this iconic anime character, but this kind of whitewashing is starting to become plain out silly, especially when they actually have a range of Japanese actresses  to chose from.

Special Thanks to Jason Chen from whom I stole this list from Yahoo.com, please visit his article in link above this text!



So looks like I won’t be getting this disbursement until school starts in three weeks which means a rough time until then. When I called in December they assured me I’d be getting it the second week of January but now this email is telling me different so idk what to do financially until school starts. I might need help soon.


Uhm well this is a stock pile and I’m not sure if this will submit properly with the size of the pages (let me know, I can crop and resend). I couldn’t decide what to draw so I kinda put a bit of every thing. P.s. I wanted to submit to your personal blog but alas, no, but as long as you receive this :) Anywho, HAPPY HEART DAY SARAH!! I’m not sure if your awake, if you are hope this doesn’t keep you up, and if you’re waking up to this I hope it makes your day and puts a smile on your face. You’re such a great person with the biggest heart, strong and talented. I’m honored that I could give something back for your hard work you allow us to enjoy. Much love to you girl, I would hug you if I could. If everything looks good (clarity wise as well as size) go ahead and crop and all that fun stuff and use each snippet as you see fit. Xoxo-Ash

But it’s not as simple as pointing to a specific childhood trauma as the key to understanding Hannibal. “We’re not explaining why he is what he is,” Mikkelsen insists. “We’re just telling stories about him. That doesn’t explain how he is, and who he is.” (Indeed, as Hannibal says himself in Season 3, “Nothing happened to me. I happened.”) “We don’t delve too deeply,” Fuller says, “because I didn’t want to unmask the man as much as I wanted to create a greater sense of mythology to the character, without overexplaining his youth.”
—  Mads Mikkelsen and Bryan Fuller in Dave Nemetz,    'Hannibal’s’ Next Course: The Stars and Showrunner on Season 3 of NBC’s Gorgeous Gorefest (Yahoo Tv, 4 June, 2015)

Here’s our tribute to Monty Oum. It’s a Medley of songs from RWBY. I hope you enjoy it.
