I am traveling to Taiwan in two weeks. This will be my second trip to this country. I will be reporting from COMPUTEX ... one of the largest computer shows in the world. I really love the culture there as well.
Is it only me that think Hollywood make Anime into a crap.
I am a fan of "Ghost on the Shell 攻殻機動隊" anime ... but not a live action movie. Besides, Hollywood likes to change the story to make it simpler.
