Nope. DC cartoons are always non-anime.

I have a Gundam-related theory that I've been pondering for a while: No matter which Gundam series you're watching, the group with the Gundam are the good guys. However, if there are multiple Gundams, the main protagonist has the one most similar to the RX-78.
Would you consider this an accurate statement or an over-simplification?

I liked the one from the mid 2000s. I caught some of the new stuff and am disgusted. Same voices, but the characters are WAY less bad ass, it didn't seem to be an action cartoon anymore, and the animation is just sad by comparison. I also dont believe it's anime. Neither in look or "feel." to me it's as American as it gets for a 13 year old boy to watch after school.

Yes, Avatar TLA is not an anime. I had no idea that there was so much debate about it.

Yeah, there's a ton. That's why I quote it as "anime" when I say it. I see it as being because it hits all the other nails on the head except country of origin, but I also know I'm in a vast minority on that opinion.

I liken it to what my neighoring country to the north's FCC equivalent calls "Canadian content." in Canada at least half of all content on the radio needs to be considered "Canadian content" so it's not all American stuff all the time. The song needs to hit 2 of 3 specific requirements to be classified as Canadian. 1) Is the artist Canadian? 2) was it Produced by a Canadian company? 3) Was it recorded in Canada? A good example is Justin Beiber. He's from Canada, his early work was from a Canadian record label, and it was recorded in Canada. It's as authentic Canadian as it got. Now, he's on an American label and records in America. No longer qualifying him as Canadian content.

I Just personally see Avatar as similarly hitting 2 of 3 points towards being legitimate anime, where as the community wants it to be a perfect 3 of 3. If that makes sense to anyone else here. And sorry if anyone here didn't want to learn anything today, especially about something as random as Canadian radio regulations, lol.

U.S. remakes of anime has always sucked!

Just check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udId1PJckhA

It was immediately cancelled and they just imported the real Sailor Moon into American TV afterwards.

Did you boys hear there's a live action Ghost in the Shell that's actually gone into production, with Scarjo in the lead? I mean obviously it'll be terrible but it's interesting that this project is going somewhere, it's one of those adaptation that floated in creative limbo for a long time.

I think it's stupid they're still going and not even responding to the protests or respecting the people who will potentially not go see it. If they were smart, they would actually listen to the people and stop whitewashing this shit like always. I too am sick of inaccurate portrayals. Now there's the other side of the story, sure, if it's a play I don't care if a black girl plays Peter Pan, but if it's a movie, I expect an accurate portayal at least of Native American Tiger Lily.

I mean hell, Pacific Rim used an asian actor, whats the big deal that makes them avoid an accurate portrayal? Watch them change Motoko's history being half american or some shit. She's JAPANESE. Hollywood is racist, and as much as I love Scarlett Johansson, I'm not happy at all with her for this, and am surprised she went through with it. It's coming next year....it should have been made by Del Toro, like Pacific Rim, or not at all. You can't trust them to do accurate portrayals. Motoko's name isn't remotely american, and there's no reason they should do this shit.

You know what the ironic thing is? I'm not really a fan of the anime series, but it pisses me off both as an anime fan, and a fan of movies. I don't get why they think ignoring petitions is a good idea, because this is gonna bomb, and they know it. Not only that, but then Hollywood producers will think it's a bad idea to adapt anime anymore because of them, unless they see it was just a poor execution. I really hope this doesn't affect film adaptations, because if they fuck it up for everyone, it'll be all because they ignored the people.

Luckily, nothing will be as bad as Dragonball: Evolution, we're lucky that didn't kill chances for adaptations, so maybe it won't, but I definitely will not be seeing this film.

42 is way too young for anybody to pass away. He has left big shoes to fill.

Bulma is showing off more, so she wins. Not really a fair competition.

I don't see it that way. It's an american adaptation for a predominantly american audience. It's never something I've found objectionable or offensive. Most american interpretations of foreign IPs turn out ass but that's irrelevant to your issue here, we've already seen the 1995 Ghost in the Shell, there's no point in just making that movie again.

and as much as I love Scarlett Johansson, I'm not happy at all with her for this, and am surprised she went through with it.

I think she's an excellent choice and it's what piqued my interest in the film. I never got the impression Scarjo is overly considerate as far as what roles she would or would not accept, I've mostly seen her in smaller more eccentric productions but it's not like she's a stranger to the hollywood garb.

You know what the ironic thing is? I'm not really a fan of the anime series, but it pisses me off both as an anime fan, and a fan of movies. I don't get why they think ignoring petitions is a good idea, because this is gonna bomb, and they know it.

I'm the same, I've never even the GitS series, I've just read the original manga, seen the first film and its direct sequel (which I liked far more), it's just clear that this wont capture anything that made the original film unique. The best we'll get is a perfectly serviceable thoughtless action movie.

Luckily, nothing will be as bad as Dragonball: Evolution

don't even pretend DB Evolution isn't a masterpiece though

In other news, I watched Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou last night and was overcome with nameless horror and fear from the very depths of my perhaps-non existent soul. I have not yet watched something that made me feel actual, absolute fear. Now I have.
