Is Scarlett Johansson Too White for Anime?

As we all know that Americans are remaking “Ghost in the Shell Remake” and Scarlett Johansson is acting as the main character of the anime which is Motoko Kusanagi and when the first image from the remake of the classic Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell emerged last week, the Otakus started rolling out of their shell to destroy the internet! Is Scarlett Johansson too white for anime? The question arises!.

The picture below is something breaking the internet, as the actoress is seen with an angular black bob and black eyebrows, is what appeared to be another example of “whitewashing”. Executives from Paramount Pictures had considered using CGI to make non-Asian actors/actress look more Asian alike.

This is what Asian people got to say about this act.
