          “those movies are actually huge in japan”

          Yup. In fact, the whole reason this movie series has even continued at all is all thanks to their enormous popularity in Japan. These movies are so popular in Japan they actually make more money than most of the Hollywood superhero movies.

      “cool female fighting soldier?” Her role doesn’t even have a name yet? Sadly she will just be an extra in the movie just like Mika.
