As a professional anime fan, my knowledge of American popular culture sometimes fails me. It took me a few months before I learned that “House fans” are not, in fact, people who like to drive around neighborhoods looking at pretty homes. Or that the show Fringe was not about cowboys or flappers. I'm guessing a few of you might be in the same boat.
So like me, you might not realize until reading this interview at the Sci Fi Wire that Jamie Chung, the actress playing Chi Chi in Dragonball Evolution, actually got her start on MTV's The Real World. Which just makes me completely and utterly sad. (On the other hand, you all might have totally known that. Which makes me sadder.)
The interview is mostly her talking about the Chi Chi vs Mai fight scene where Mai morphs into a Chi Chi clone and how difficult and time-consuming the filming process was. Interesting stuff if you're curious about the effect.
Meanwhile, I'm going to just go sit in the corner with a bottle of Bacardi until the midnight showing on Thursday...
