    If the movie is decent then that means it's already better than the source material ;P

    I will reserve my judgement... but if I hear there is even one flashback in this movie. Im out! #nofiller

    Let's wait till the actors and Scarlet Johannson get cast...

    ...then we will see a few Tweets, I mean, see the Internet react.

    Unless 3/4 of the movie is flashbacks it will be nothing like the anime.

    The first Neogaf post gave me AIDS.

    The incredible amount of racism under the surface of that post is overwhelming, like my feet after work.
