6. Here's how one random fan rationalized the white-washing

"The Major is a cyborg and her physical form is an entirely assumed one. The name 'Motoko Kusanagi' and her current body are not her original name and body, so there is no basis for saying that an Asian actress must portray her. Even if her original body (presuming such a thing existed) were a Japanese one, that would still apply"

Oh, wait. That's not some rando--That's Mamoru Oshii!

If Johansson's performance is good enough for the director of the original films, then it's good enough for me.
