Go to this asshole's twitter and demand that the Akira Live Action film be killed NOW. Dude makes racist remarks about the Japanese and says he can make the original Story better.
>>

>says he can make the original Story better
He probably can, have you seen the original film?
its a fucking mess.
>>
>>102055953
Akira isn't good because of the story, so I'm sure many people can make the original story better.
>>
>>102056041
>>102056045
He's talking about the manga and turning it into a trilogy. He doesn't even have it in Japan anymore, but fucking Neo New York!
>>
>>102055953
why would we not want more Akira? there's a chance we might even like it. Give it a chance to happen, at least.
>>
Uh why? If it's going to be terrible, then all the better. No one will want to make an anime movie ever again.
>>
>>102056041
>>102056045
>>102056173
Do you guys seriously want another Dragonball Evolution fiasco again?
>>
>>102055953
I thought it already had been axed.
>>
>>102056163
>He doesn't even have it in Japan anymore, but fucking Neo New York!
>Implying Akira has to be set in Japanland
>He's talking about the manga
its not like the manga has masterful storytelling that cant be improved upon
>>
>>102056288
It's on hold but the director wants to continue it and make a Trilogy out of it. We need to help drive the last couple of nails into this Live Action coffin.
>>
Isn't Leonardo DiCaprio supposed to star in this film?
>>
>>102057052
Sadly yes. Though he may be too old for it now.
>>
>>102055953
I remember years back that this would in turn take influence from 9/11 and what not. If anything just ignore it like all anime films.

What a distinguished career
I'm so glad someone like this wants to direct Akira
>>
>>102058314
i pray you're being sarcastic.
>>
>>102058748
i pray you are autistic since you couldn't tell he was being sarcastic
>>
>>102058748
I thought it was obvious enough
>>
>>102056421
At which point it stops being "AKIRA", fucktard
>>
>>102058901
How Is the Change from one fictionalized location to another fictionalized location going to change the story in any big way?
He can make the locations almost identical in everything except the name. How is this a big deal?
>>
>>102055953
Let him destroy his own career. What more could you ask for?
>>
>>102059157
Because Akira is also a satire on Japan's culture. Not New York's.
>>
>>102059157
Changing it in the first place retard.

It's like saying the story of Tarzan took place in the Pine forests of Canada. Sure there are trees and wild animals around but it's still not the fucking Jungle.
>>
>>102059157
Because it defeats the entire damn purpose of said story to begin with.
>>
Why should I care? It's not like I'm going to watch it.
>>
>>102059157

I bet you like to watch dubs too, don't you, faggot.
>>
>>102059320
Sure, if the forests of Canada werent a real place that could be made similar to the jungle in any way the creator wants, then yeah, just like that
>>
Akira has a messy story and cardboard characters. The city doesn't really matter.
>>
>>102056242
Yes, it would be hilarious.
>>
>>102059551
This, and why do you anons care if something that isnt very good to begin with gets butchered by an adaptation that nobody expects anything out of anyway.
>>
>>102056242

DBE would've been a decent western Kung Fu flick if they didn't shove in Dragon Ball halfway through the movie.
>>
>>102059547
>>102059157
>>
>>102059304
Is it? Maybe I'm juat ignorant but I don't remeber anything distinctly japanese about akira. It just felt like a city grieving over a tragic event, which was obviously based on post war Japan but post- 9/11 newyork had the same atmosphere
>>
>>102059826

See: >>102059704

>>102059826
It isnt he doesnt know what hes talking about
>>
I get the feeling that we're being trolled. No one can be this fucking dense.
>>
>>102059981
You think you are making good points
you are not making good points
and just saying we are dense instead of arguing your points isn't a good way to convince
>>

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akira_(manga)#Themes

OH, WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT.
>>
>>102060241
Everything relating back to japanese culture is either minor or can easily be Americanized with no major loss to the story
And most of the Major themes can be left exactly the same.
>>

>>102060397
Who needs themes when you can have explosions?
>>
>>102059625
Because if it does bad it means that anime is dead in the west and that normalfags will see anime as nothing more than "just cartoons".
>>
>>102060437
Using a parody video that does idiotic things that would never happen in a real adaptation, that is made to be ridiculous and do everything wrong is the worst way that you could possibly make your argument.
>>
>>102060630

That's a good thing though.
>>
>>102060652
>>
>>102060647
>idiotic things that would never happen in a real adaptation
>>
>>102060630
Good, I hate all of the normals in the west who like anime anyway
>>
>>102060510
follower of the Michel Bay philosophy are you?
