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.

So i've read the Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai light novel a bit and i gotta say, i like it more than the anime.
The way things roll out was a lot better, Togashi doesn't instantly meet nibutani, rikka or any of these people like most anime protagonists (Similar examples : How kyousuke meets all the girls in Oreimo), i also really liked how rikka seems to be more badass and silent in the anime and how yuuta keeps thinking about her first instead of act like an asshole to her and try to get rid of her like he does in the anime (Example : when he shows her his chuunibyou diary so she could leave while nibutani visits him), you know because in the anime he keeps hitting her and being rude to her and keeps focusing on "Mori-sama" until their friendship gets better (Or by Rikka getting beat up by her sister with kitchen tools) or until he realizes that he needs to stop being an ass to the girl that came to him directly and told him "I traveled from another world to see you" and he was like "m8 u wot" but in the novel, he's actually showing interest in her and he isn't really as annoying. aside from that, i like how the story and the protagonist's emotions are covered in great detail. i like seeing that in stories because it adds more weight to what's being said and how the situation's going, unlike how some lame novels i've read before say things like "I was at the club and the music was playing, then i met a girl and we got married"

tl;dr the chuunibyou light novel is better than the anime imo.
Link if anyone wants to read it : V1 and V2 here.

Yeah, sometimes manga is a lot better because it has more space to describe events, and beautiful illustrations.
I can write down a whole china wall of text about why i like manga more but let's keep that for later.

You should research that idea, and see what you find. Let us know your results.

Anime vs. manga...
Everyone says manga is better, but i can't tolerate the absence of beautiful soundtracks and animation and therefore I never finished any manga.

I'll tell you a tragedy: "I watched tokyo ghoul anime and didn't read its manga yet"
What could be worse than this X)

Manga are generally better than the anime adaptations but there are cases where the anime actually improve from the manga.

When it comes to that, at least give anime series a chance unless the word of mouth is overwhelmingly bad.

Also don't forget there are anime series that wasn't adapted from the manga series, just look up "Kill la Kill" (though it was basically a remake of Cutey Honey but it still applies), and TTGL.

It's been a while since the last time I posted here. What was the most recent anime you guys watched? I just finished watching Shokugeki no Souma. I have to say, it's probably one of the best anime of last year. I might start reading the manga since I don't want to wait for them to make another season.

Reading the manga after the anime is the best. You can compare and contrast the two art styles.

I want to start reading the manga, but the problem is, it's still ongoing and if I start reading it now, I'll catch up to the latest chapter in no time and end up having to wait a week for each new chapter to come out. I hate having to do that because I actually start to forget what's going on in the story. I think I'll wait for the manga to progress further.

Sometimes, they are different. Reading the manga will not automatically ruin the anime, but it might.
