Knights of the Zodiac, 1980s Anime gets Hollywood live action treatment
Knights of the Zodiac, is probably the best looking Hollywood adaptation of an Anime I had seen so far. This is based from the 1980s anime, Saint Seiya. I see progress in Hollywood’s part this time because Seiya is played by Japanese Actor, Mckenyu. After going through white washing seeing white actors playing Asian characters for a century, Finally an Asian lead in an Anime Adaptation. Remember When Scarlett Johansson played by Major Motoko Kusanagi, Or Justin Chatwin playing Son Goku. I also still have nightmares when Nat Wolff played Light Yagami. Success of Asian American movies like Crazy Rich Asians,Shang-chi and Everything,Everywhere all at once change the narrative for Asian Actors. We can also consider the success of Asian Streaming originals in American television. If this movie was done in 2008, A White actor will be playing Seiya.
