National borders have always been arbitrarily drawn by people, and in ancient times there was a lot of exchange of people and culture with the continent. But then you get into a conversation about the Jomon and Yayoi peoples. dif people weren't used to Q: How would you explain that? Watanabe: There are many theories about who the original Japanese were, but it's pretty clear that we were not all one ethnic group but a mix of various ones. First we had the Jomon.

Lots of times when you watch anime, the characters all have white skin - all the characters in fantasy stories all have white skin, which I never liked. I wanted to have lots of characters in Bebop without the white skin, and if people weren't used to that, well, maybe it would even make them think a little bit about it.

wolfsmom1: drst: jenniferrpovey: bemusedlybespectacled: darkrainbow13: George Takei was so excited to do this shirtless episode. He spent all his free time doing push-ups for a week before they shot this. they were going to give him a katana and have him be a samurai, but he didn’t want to be stereotypical, so he told the execs that he could fence and they wrote in references to the three musketeers instead he could not, in fact, fence he spent the weekend before shooting learning how Not only that, but he found he liked fencing, kept it up, and became a master fencer. When I had the privilege to hear him talk at AwesomeCon 2015, he informed us he is a master fencer. It was a very clear implication that he is still fencing at his advanced age. No wonder he’s so healthy. He had far too much fun with this episode and it shows. Hikaru Sulu, our first Space Pirate. I ❤️George. : SIR, LEVEL TWO, CORRIDOR THREE REPORTS A DISTURBANCE MR.
