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.
Akira isn't good because of the story, so I'm sure many people can make the original story better.
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!
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.
Do you guys seriously want another Dragonball Evolution fiasco again?
I thought it already had been axed.
>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
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?
Sadly yes. Though he may be too old for it now.
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.
>Run All Night (post-production)
>The River (TV Series) (2 episodes)
>Goal II: Living the Dream
>House of Wax
What a distinguished career
I'm so glad someone like this wants to direct Akira
i pray you're being sarcastic.
i pray you are autistic since you couldn't tell he was being sarcastic
I thought it was obvious enough
At which point it stops being "AKIRA", fucktard
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?
Let him destroy his own career. What more could you ask for?
Because Akira is also a satire on Japan's culture. Not New York's.
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.
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.
I bet you like to watch dubs too, don't you, faggot.
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.
Yes, it would be hilarious.
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.
DBE would've been a decent western Kung Fu flick if they didn't shove in Dragon Ball halfway through the movie.
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
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.
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
OH, WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT.
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.
Who needs themes when you can have explosions?
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".
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.
That's a good thing though.
>idiotic things that would never happen in a real adaptation
Good, I hate all of the normals in the west who like anime anyway
follower of the Michel Bay philosophy are you?
they will never let this happen again.
Can I get a source on those remarks sir?
