You know, I think I came up with something here.
zetshia_gudani's watching this awful anime where they tried to make up German names and FAILED. Big time.
Anyway, she mentioned that the names were all wrong and their American military uniforms were all wrong and then said "Well, I suppose we probably fuck up whenever we make movies about samurai."
That made me realize that movies really are the ultimate equalizer. Movies allow every culture to fuck up every other culture's culture equally.
