lolz... I agree there. But who can blame them? When you got talented animators like Myazaki, and such good anime like Death Note, Ghost in the Shell, Trigun, and Cowboy Bebop that actually know how to constuct PLOT well (unlike current Hollowood for the most part... though they have rare gems of brilliance.... There Will Be Blood as freaking awesome.)
So Hollowood just wants to milk other sources of talent for their own lack of talent and end up destroying the source material.
Indeed. Especially Cowboy Bebop. That is the anime I bring up for people to get into anime because it is so damn good.
It is the same thing when those hacks Emmerich and Devlin made that American Godzilla "film" (Or Godzilla in Name Only AKA GINO as known to us fans.) Now I can't get people to take any of the films seriously even though there are a few good ones.
