    Being surprised about someone finding a political movement abhorrent and not wanting to do anything that may be seen as supporting that movement, and then getting depressed because you have a victim complex? Hell-fucking-yes, I will defend his actions! Sure, he was a prick about making it a specific thing and then explaining that much. But, it's also his decision whether he wants to do a job or not.

    Is he an asshole for using the LGBTQ movement as an excuse? Sure. I've seen assholes a-plenty on this board and elsewhere similar in attitude to him. The main point here is, for as much as I'm an ass in equal parts, I don't open a new topic or campaign for public sympathy. I tell the person I'm done with their shit, I'm not going to respond to them on any basis, and move on. If they persist, I report their shit and handle whatever grievance I have with the action (or lack thereof) the authorities of that forum decide on. I don't get depressed or bawl my eyes out like a baby while telling everyone the "mean person hurt my fee-fees."

    I empathize with her frustration, yes. I empathize with his position, yes. I don't agree with his methods or her crybaby attitude. The world is shit full of shitty people with a shitty karma system. The difference between being a child and an adult is how you deal with shit.

          I don't have good opinion of IGN, but what happened - happened. Not much we can do about it. Give it some time, it can:
          a) get shitty
          b) stay as it is
          c) get better

          Minor cons/pros that can happen are not included.
          Personally I think they will turn it into shit. Time will tell.

              I don't really take issue with anything he said. I could nitpick details, but it sounds like he would try to be faithful to the manga series than the anime was (however that works.). He also doesn't want to pull the same shit Hollywood does with iconic works from Japan, what with the white-washing and changing the plot to "dumb it down" for western audiences. Because GiTS and Dragonball were so complex and difficult to grasp for 13yo and 8yo me, respectively.

              Anyways, tangents aside, it's not really anything that raises flags. If nothing else, he seems hesitant to work on it given the response to how Hollywood butchered GiTS and DB. In his position, I'd be pretty reluctant to touch anything iconic from another country for fear of corporate meddling, too.

                Changing plot and few things, to get some creativity going, can be done properly.
                *Tries to think about a movie that did this and he still enjoyed it*
                Hmm... maybe Deadpool... maybe.

                But it's mostly done in such shitty way, it's just worse than bad.
                DB movie could have been good/decent, Toriyama himself wanted to help them make it better. They pretty much told him to fuck off.
                And on top of that, all disgusting shit that goes behind curtains... Like some degenerates. No wonder they can't produce anything decent those days.
                This is Hollywood, chaps and lasses, that old, annoying fart refusing to die. Someone get a pillow and put it down before it gets even more mental and do something so outrageous, we will have to shoot it like it's some wild animal with rabies >_>

                Personally I avoid new movies as much as I can. Mostly it's just pure shit.

                  Re: In today's news...

                  and don't forget the Last Airbender and Netflix's Deathnote ...


                  I don't think Hollywood is the only one fucking up beloved Japanese anime adaptations since Japan itself aren't that hot in their own version of said anime like that live action Full Metal Alchemist film where certainly a western cast would be more fitting than a chinky eyed alchemist named Edward Elric...and don't get me started on the other movies Japan has tried to "faithfully" render...from Attack on Titan and yes even their own version of Deathnote which may or may not be better than the one at Netflix...

                  the only good anime-to-live-action movie I saw where Japanese film makers had the helm was the Ruruoni Kenshin (Samurai X for you westerners) series of movies and not only does it stayed faithful to the source material, (well there are some scenes from the anime not shown in the movie surely because of time constraints) but the way they handled some slight deviations in the whole arc was so nicely done that you won't notice it unless you are a fanatic and anyone who may have not read the manga or watched the anime series would still like it and say that this was a Japanese version of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon...

                  so yeah...that's just my 50 centavos...

                  there maybe a time Hollywood won't fuck up an anime franchise...but even if they do again at least it won't be said that it has the monopoly of creating anime live action abominations...Japan can equally churn out shite as well...the only difference is Hollywood has more budget but they still decided to fuck it up due to some things like SJWLGBTXYZ and whatnot...

                  oh and the dreaded words "artistic freedom"...

                    Too true, I believe the entertainment industry as a whole just doesn't make the effort to understand the IP's or those IP's fanbases that they're trying to cash in on.

                          Hollywood should stick to making $7 budget Will Farrell comedies. They are very similar to the old Yugo cars. They might be crappy, but hey they are cheap.

                          I like star wars, and even have found a place for the mostly awful ewok movies. However i can barely stand the "prequels" nor the force awakened. For some reason I liked Rogue One even though it probably opened more holes than it closed.

                          Maybe it is the space battles specifically that draw me to star wars. What are the chance episode 8 is a disappointment, 150%?

                            Well, rogue one was disposable by nature after all...

                            I was really hoping for an ACTUAL rogue squadron movie, but oh well.

                              Rogue One got butchered by Disney

                              It was meant to be a gritty war movie but then GL sold out, the new masters fired the director and ordered a lot of scenes reshot
