    I mean…..

    I gotta say, I love that they seem to have faithfully adapted that specific scene from the first GiTS movie to live action, like I imagine it would have been.

    Although, because the setting still seems to be future Tokyo or Nihima, I’m still uneasy with the notion of the Major being a caucasian Scandinavian woman.

    Hollywood is going to have to get over their fear of casting non-white leads to headline their blockbusters.
    The 3rd highest grossing movie (so far) this year at the Box office, starred an East Indian boy acting against a bunch of CGI animals with not a white person or face in sight.
    And it did pretty okay at the box office.
