Fixed it! Rinko Kikuchi as Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell. And it should stay that way. 

This is a response to Margot Robbie in talks to lead DreamWorks’ live-action adaptation of the 1995 hit anime movieGhost in the Shell, to be directed by Snow White and the Huntsman's Rupert Sanders.

If you’re going to make live-action adaptations of Japanese anime movies, mangas and tv shows, cast Japanese actors and actresses. Refusing to do so is a direct slap on the face. Japanese anime characters are not white or racially ambiguous, they’re Japanese. Unless the Manga artist states the character is of a different race, do not assume the character is white. 

They’re doing the same shit with one of my favorite anime films Akira.

And I’m predicting this Ghost in the Shell live-action film will be the next Dragonball Evolution or The Last Airbender, I hope it flops. 

I’m tired of Americans ruining legendary and groundbreaking Japanese anime movies, mangas and tv shows. 

So basically… if Japanese filmmakers what to adapt an American or European series/story they need to use all white actors in order to capture the essence of the source material?

Sorry, I call bullshit. If Japanese people want to make a cowboy movie and cast Japanese actors and actresses I think it’s A-OK.

Why you gotta make everything about race.

Absolutely crazy smog. Generally Tokyo skies are clear but I guess China’s pollution blew over. It’s only 2pm and so dark outside.

My two babies here in Japan <3 There’s Dango, a Jungle-patterned leopard gecko who was a birthday gift from my boyfriend (background), and Mitarashi who is a patternless leopard gecko which I purchased a month after Dango. Their names are a bit of a joke because Mitarashi Dango is a food, but actually I named Dango after dango mushi (pill bug) and mitarashi is the water by the temples.
