    I know that argument is jumping right to Wizard Hitler, but I've seen way too many fanfictions which try to paint the Death Eaters as noble crusaders protecting their traditions. Better written characters get much more leeway, especially when the character is at least trying trying to be a hero.
    Ι mean yeah, that is clearly one interpretation of the work. At the end of the day it's literally ALL subjective, it's just a matter how far you're willing to entertain your conversation partner's point of view.

    So recently I lost my high school diploma, and to make a replacement for it, I need to contact my old friends that I have never met for 3 years at the minimum as testifiers of my credibility as the real person/owner of the lost diploma. It's involved lots of complicated steps, not to mention a photocopy of their own diploma and their signature of it, and I am currently living overseas from them, and covid. Both of them decided to send those documents and their signature right away and I just got both of them today and clear the things I needed from it.

    I have very great friends... I don't know how to repay them. I sent them some food and chocolates and souvenirs but I feel like it is not enough.

    According to Wikipedia, FWIW:
    Kyōto = 京都 ("capital city")
    Tōkyō = 東京 ("eastern capital")
    Tokyo's official name is Tōkyō-to (東京都, "eastern capital city").
    Day will come again.

    So they're just homophones. I was kind of hoping they were just lazy and rearranged the name, since it's stupid enough to be funny.

    I dunno, sending a souvenir (especially chocolate, who doesn't love chocolate) sounds pretty cool already.

    And I'd probably still watch that over that live action Ghost in the Shell movie.

    What, you don't think Ishikawa going out and getting a robo liver so he can party even harder is true to the original character?


    That said, as long as you ignore all the plot and dialogue, the movie is really pretty and the action pieces are well shot. It's the exact opposite of how GITS should be, but it has more generic appeal. At least according to my friend I dragged to it, who had no previous exposure to GITS.
