Where will you be when Ghost in the Shell goes mainstream around the world?

How does she get any work? She's not attractive, she can't act for shit and the only good thing she's ever done was covering a Tom Waits' song and even that wasn't all that impressive.

>>124376627
I was actually re-watching Arise (Alternative Architecture), and GITS S.A.C 2nd G.I.G all night tonight, with my GITS shirt on, of course.

Where I will be? As for that, I'll probably still be here, watching and re-watching GITS once or twice a year, every year. It's like a ceremony.

Everyone has that one anime they always re-watch once a year, like watching Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya on christmas or whatever else every year to get into the spirits of the seasons.

For me it's GITS during early spring, at night, when it's cold. That is where I will be. Watching GITS, alone.

someone just fucking kill me

Why the fuck would she try out for a role of a massively popular character without knowing fuck all about her in the first place?

Why can we never not have a decent fucking GITS thread without some faggot mentioning how much he hates women or discussing whether or not the major is actually a male or female.

I'm half convinced that one of the reasons why Ghost is so popular is because it's 1.) A peek into the possible future, and 2.) is every mans genderbent day-dream.

Tell me you haven't at least once or twice wished you were major kusanagi, and I'll tell you to go out and get a handgun permit, buy a handgun, and when you fire it for the first time, I hope you think of my comment and really realize how cool it would be to be the major.

Then again, I suppose that's the purpose of most anime in general...so I'm not really sure how GitS is more or less any more special than any other series, but I'm sure some of you get the point I'm making, no?

YES.

I listen to S.A.C 2nd G.I.G's OP and ED every goddamn time no matter what. I don't know why but when I do listen to them, I feel really disconnected from my surroundings. It makes me feel really, what's that word - when you don't care about life itself, or anything, and it's actually your lifestyle, and not just a passing phase, nihilistic? Too lazy to ask for google-sensei's help.

Ask any normal otaku / weeb / anon in general who's seen Ghost in the Shell once or twice and I'm half sure they'll tell you they've imagined doing that on more than one occasion.

Ghost in the Shell's OP's and ED's are the kind of thing in which it depends on your living situation, your mood, the time of day/night, and the seasons during the first time you hear/watch them.

After seeing them for the first time, most instances after that, namely, rewatching the series, you'll recall the wonder and amazement you felt the first time; nostalgia - for a brief time after the OP / ED starts to play.

Any good series that you watch will always leave a lasting impression on you, and when you re-watch the series, you will likely remember the mood you were in, the temperature it was outside, and a lot of other things that, as silly as it may be, or even sound, always create a very unreal experience the second or third sitting.

This is the nature of nostalgia.

>>124380098
Just the fact it's a ghost in the shell live action HOLLYWOOD movie is advertisement enough. No more advertisement is needed after the fact because all the real GITS fans will go see it regardless or not of it's potential suckability.

In essence, they'd be making the movie so that anime fans can scoff at stuff other people watch, namely normalized movies, non anime watchers etc etc, and to make them feel special I;E not only test their willingness to show up at the theaters, but also to reward them with the ability to brag about having seen a movie that many middle aged normalfags may not know about even though it's mainstream as fuck now.

I can see it now. Hipsters amongst the /a/ crowds who actually have friends discussing the philosophical waxings presented in the GITS movie as if they're actually deep, and some normalfag being completely lost not even knowing what GITS is, or what the movie is a remake of, and the hipsterfag laughing while feeling some ridiculous inborn superiority.

The only thing this movie is really going to accomplish, imho, is spreading controversy, and giving hope to the borderline mainstream crowds about their fantasies of anime becoming mainstream enough for their normalfag friends to talk about it in school without getting bullied like you can with video games now.

"oh you watch that nerdy stuff? loser!"
>into
"it's mainstream, what are you talking about? everyones watching anime these days, YOUR the loser if you DON'T watch anime"

It's odd, because you can now, unlike before, actually say that to someone who doesn't play video games and it actually be partially true.

Or Day After Tomorrow. Who would have imagined that Tom fucking Cruise would be the lead actor in a fucking reimagining of All you need is Kill?

Speaking of reimaginings, at some point when we, I like to imagine anyways - hear the news that some series, somewhere, at some point - is getting recognition by the American entertainment industrial complex, I like to think that some of us actually hope that aspiring authors, mangakas, animators, etc etc, working in japan who see this happen to series upon series, anime upon anime, usually get uplifted and happy over the fact that their series, which started out as practically nothing, got so popular and beloved that it even got taken in by the industrial complex and it pains me to know that, all the way over there in japan, they have no way of knowing how bad it actually is for this to happen, and that in reality the pinacle of popularity is for their series to simply be animated, dubbed in english voices, and sold in american stores AS IT ORIGINALLY IS.

Even having your manga translated into english by a legitimate partner company is good enough by some standards, maybe I just can't comprehend the glory these authors and artists in japan must feel as they wonder about how much attention their creation must be getting when it's announced in a country like good ol murrica as being adopted into live action?

As shitty as it may turn out for us, there in japan, even the fans in japan, and just the normal crowds involved in the anime / manga scene must be happy that other countries are involved with, and love their works of art, so, whatever, more power to them I guess?

Johansson is going to nail this role perfectly, you wait and see.

If you stop and think about it, Johansson's the stoic and commandeering type. Just like Kusanagi. She also has good moves, like Kusanagi. I hope they actually train her in martial arts for the fucking movie though, instead of just using wires to suspend her when she does jump kicks and shit.

I actually quite pictured Kusanagi as the Johansson type, honestly though.

But then again what the fuck do I know, I don't into 3DPD, so I'm pretty much behind the times when it comes to the brain cancer that's on the tube these days.

>>124380850
>>124381075
I meant Edge, not day, sorry. I've read AYNIK, but I honestly think it would have been better if it simply were adapted, and made into an animated series, or hell, even a japanimation movie would have worked good, just not a live action one. Edge was by no means bad, that's for sure, but it wasn't spectacular like it should have been.

I think all these recent adaptations of popular, wild, or interesting japanese LN and Manga based stories are more along the lines of practice runs for the real deal, like Ghost, for instance.

Sorry for the fuck up there, but yeah, give me a break, that was a wall of text, one or two fuck ups should be excusable.

But yeah, if they fuck this up, I seriously will lose faith in hollywood for the rest of my life.

Well, that's certainly not a *negative* when dealing with casting the Major. I'd just rather they have cast an Asian actress.

Elysium.
>>
>>124376627
Great. That is enough time to get an Asian actress with talent.
>>
>>124381776

In terms of public awareness, it is probably one of the anime that has the most exposure in the west outside of Naruto. Otherwise they never would have funded it.

Personally, I don't care at all, since GiTS has a western mentality (it's named after a Gilbert Ryle phrase) and aesthetic from the get-go. This is just a fulfillment of its inherent nature.
>>
>>124381808

It's obvious their going to localize the story to the U.S. Otherwise, they'd have to have Asians in EVERY roll, not just Kusanagi. So it'll just be like what they with with Edge of Tomorrow/All You Need is Kill.
>>
Men who go around claiming women shouldn't be protagonists, or that they make terrible main characters remind me almost explicitly of those redundant, retarded, almost archaic church pastors who'd go around claiming Pokemon was the spawn of satan, or of ridiculous christian conspiracy theorists that claim Family Guy is loomanaty / Satanist brainwashing.

I hate men so much sometimes, yet I can't live without the them because there are enough good men to make up for the rest of the toxic ones, just like there're enough good women to make up for the toxic ones.

Remember people, men and women you hear about on television and social networking that do evil, bad, almost scandalous shit, are NOT the fucking majority (women tend to be more scandalous I'll at least admit that much), and it pisses me off when you have a confident, kick-ass character like kusanagi for young women to look up to - shat on by some actual loser.

In short, I'm not sure why I even posted, I'm just a stupid bitch after all.

>I'd just rather they have cast an Asian actress.
You'd lose a LOT of sales in the conservative american south where racism is a norm. But more importantly than the specific direct loss of sales is that a lot of those people would be using their word of mouth to spread negative comments about the movie. Many of those people are also in media industries as well as blogs and forums, thus a lot of the promotional expense of the movie would become a "lossed offset" expense. Since the promotion expenses are over one hundred million dollars for tentpole movies, that makes defensive considerations for choice of actors a big deal when dealing with the USA market.

**note: "lossed" is not a typo

Find me a single post where ANYONE ITT has said,no, even implied that your average middle aged soccer mom can recognize Ghost in the Shell.

By your measure of what's considered mainstream, we're talking about 1.) It being "americanized", and 2.) It being notorious enough to warrant recognition simply by namesake, I;E Breaking bad levels.

That will never happen, and you assuming that's what were talking about makes you the autist, not us.

True enough. However discussion aside, it's more easy to believe that the threads, although technically ok - still a meta thread, plus the fact it's live action we're talking about. I did say it's indirectly related though, because the content being discussed is not anime, but is based off of one, and is therefore indirectly related to the topic being discussed when taking into account the source material of the topic related to it.

The point I was actually concerned with was how everyone was spazzing the fuck out early on in the thread. How come you didn't mention that, instead of some meaningless bullshit about meta posting when it was clearly ok for the thread to exist past the half hour mark in the first place you literally responded hours later, anon.
