Was their budget that bad they could not get an actual Indian or person of Indian heritage? Well, better that than having a White person play an Indian.

Huh. The live-action movie managed to find an Indian actress who spoke Japanese, so I figured the tv series would have done the same.

More embarrassing casting. This isn't the 1960s. Plenty of actual people from the subcontinent living and Japan and able to speak English - and they can't find one?

Looks serviceable to me, I don't care about cultural sensitivity and whatnot though.
