    Same thing I've said all along:

    -Surround an Asian actress with major Hollywood hitters

    OR

    -Completely do their own thing with the material like Edge of Tomorrow. Even though with All You Need Is Kill it had a more international cast in the source material to begin with. (Emily Blunt's character was not Japanese in the novel either)

    OR

    In the case of GiTS since she is an android have her switch to this ScarJo body from her original one for some reason. I could at least swallow that reasoning a bit more.

    I have to imagine this was a situation where the studio heads thought this would be great idea and the director and producers were like, "...."

    Here's the cast. Boy band member Ryosuke Yamada stars as Edward Elric, while actress Tsubasa Honda is Winry Rockbell and actor Dean Fujioka is Roy Mustang.

    Al's armor is spot on perfect.

    That's the thing with japanese adaptations of their own brands, visually and stylistically true to a fucking T.... but utterly shallow in direction and thematic appropriation of the material.

    Directorial quality especially, the only exceptions for me are the kenshin movies.

    I've only seen the first Kenshin and it was awesome. Japan knows chambara and jidaigeki films. That's their bread and butter, they've been doing them since the 50s. I expect Blade of the Immortal to be pretty cool too, but everything else...ehhhhhhhh. Pretty poopy.

    Ed's wig looks pretty awful and yes...that run. As a director I'd be like, "Look, I know that you're not really being chased but how about you...fuck it, get me a car. I'm going to chase your ass in this car and so if you don't want to get run over you better haul ass!"
