places in japan

Dear Hollywood:

There are anime shows/manga series that you can adapt and cast with white people. For instance: Full Metal Alchemist, Attack on Titan, Black Butler, Baccano, Cowboy Bebop, Helsing, Rose of Versailles, Princess Tutu and an anime that’s airing right now (and I love it!) called ACCA 13. All of these take place outside of Japan and have predominatly white characters. Adapt them.

Anime/manga like Death Note and Ghost in the Shell are deeply ingrained in Japanese culture. You can’t adapt them with a white cast and expect them to still have the same meaning. Do better.

  • Italy: Germany, Japan, we're friends, right~?
  • Japan: um, yes, Italy-kun.
  • Germany: what's with this question all of a sudden?
  • Italy: well, I've never had friends before, so I don't know anything about being a good friend, veh~ Do you guys know? Since you two are super smart and cool, maybe you can teach me about friendship~~~!
  • Japan and Germany: *awkward silence*
