Avengers Infinity War got away with it because all characters were established in previous movies

Also, it would be debatable for the American adaption would Itami be Japanese or even an Anime Otaku. Even though Anime is becoming more main stream, it still isn't that well known like Comics, etc
Your initial suggestion was that this adaptation take the form of an HBO series. Itami being Japanese might be less jarring if he was part of a multinational team of characters (maybe some training advisors?), just like in the Battleship film adaptation.

Besides, given that this is a live-action adaptation of the anime, you are certainly going to get your primary attention from the anime fans. Straying too far from the source material upsets those fans and tanks sales, like what happened with the live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell.

To be fair, the gaming, airsoft, and shooting communities are all occasionally stereotyped that way too.
