I love Japan's latent inferiority complex and thinly veiled butthurt because of WW2. It makes me feel all tingly inside.
Are there any manga or anime where this is a common theme? I want a giggle.
>>
>>120616033
Any manga that glorifies their military, or just has their military in it at all.

- GATE is one huge NIPPON BANZAI manga, at the expense of being based around in a American SciFi series.

- Kantai Collection has some, in the Webbrowser descriptions of the Girls and their Carriers.

I'm pretty sure you're confusing satire for the real thing. In the case of this manga, anyway.

Can't believe I've been reading gate for a long ass while, and I'm just now realizing that its a SG:1 ripoff.

You're acting like every country doesn't glorify the fuck out of their military whenever it appears in their media. Here's a hint, every country does it, the US is 100x worse about it.

recently mahouka has brought that to the forefront

Murrikans at least aren't warping reality to have their military saving the day, the cold hard truth is that the White Devil does have best military might in the world.

Or Korea.

>recently mahouka has brought that to the forefront

I mean, yamato damashii nippon ichi bullshit and culturing posturing in relation to east Asian nations have always been kind of a recurring motif. Sometimes there'll be a show where you've got three factions that are basically NATO, the Soviet Union and Japan, and while the two factions bumble around, the Japan allegory runs roughshod over both of them with an army of high school ubermensch.

But you know, lately with stuff like Mahouka, or as >>120617288 mentioned, GATE and Kancolle, I wonder if there's just a trend for right-wing nationalism that's just falling together. I mean, Kancolle hasn't escaped scrutiny, you know, Japanese Navy ships that participated in stuff like Pearl Harbor being cuted up. But hell, Hetalia went through the same thing.

And before /k/ gets overzealous about everything, if there is an international incident that needs world policing, it is the US doing the heavy lifting.

I said military might, not thinking minds and strategy.

They shot their canons at Lights in The Sky decades ago, War of the Worlds!

For real though, I hear so many conflicting details about WW2 history being taught in Japan.

>they removed the rape of Nanking from textbooks
>they attempted to remove Nanking from textbooks
>textbooks that censored the rape of Nanking aren't approved
>textbooks

How is the rape of Nanking, comfort women and Imperial Japan's other shenanigans taught in 21st century Japan?

>>120621253
Do adaptations of "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" count?
>>
I'm glad Japan isn't scared to be a bit nationalistic and basically doesn't give a shit about what it did wrong in the past when its not merited.
>>
>>120617949
What are you talking about? Ayako's pretty critical of Japan's pre war society. Did you miss all the rapes and incest?

I don't think they are.

Spoken like a true ignorant. Look up Germany's policy towards Nazi involvement in WWII

Why do americans whine about the nanking rape not being included in jap books or whatever the drama is about, when all of this stuff is not included in their own books?

They aren't, like the Atomic Bomb itself wasn't really "a fact" the day and the day after it got dropped on them.
>>
>>120621227
You can only invest so much. I'm pretty damn sure America doesn't send its full might for a conflict, just enough to quell it. More than that seems to be a waste of money.

Nationalistic at the expense of making everyone else a retard is bad, Murrika itself has some works where they see themselves as the idiots, while having some miracle figure to guide to them the right path, like Captain America.

I can't remember the name but there's a stupid magic battle school manga set in a universe where the nips won WWII.

It's amazing how anally devastated some of them can be that they got destroyed.

If i'm not mistaken they basically gloss over it, i remember very long ago someone posted an image of a textbook with it, it was just a paragraph and there was no pictures or anything

>>
>>120621500
Because that shit's petty and unorganized compared. Education's more focused on moral ambiguity of FDR's handling of information about the Pearl Harbor before the attack, and Truman's decision to drop the atomic bombs.

At higher education it's very well documented.

It's not like high school/middle school history classes gloss over slavery, how the federal government treated the Native Americans, Tuskegee syphilis experiments, etc.

There were no good guys in WW2.

Both sides did bad shit.

One side did worse.

Kek. Give it another century. I'm more worried about how benevolent our next 'leader' will be. Better the evil you know, right?

Nah. It's based on existing Chinese literature, yes? I'm looking for instances of Japanese-created Chinese characters in fictions that aren't cute girls or assholes.
