Don't confuse military fetishism with bonafide right-wing Nippon Kaigi ultra-nationalism and revisionist inanity.

That said, the trend isn't unique to anime or the intersecting anime/LN/manga/VN mediums as a whole.

Right now it's a balancing act between a desire for Japan to proactively struggle against an American hegemony, and the fact that they'd rather have the American hegemony than a Chinese one. Better the devil you know.

You forgot Gate.

Nothing wrong with it. We've got enough moe by now. Time for some manly times.

Japanese nationalism on the rise.

So they love their country and their culture, not like others. Fuck'em, right?
>>
isn't militarism and strength and nationalism a good thing? I personally want to see more of this in media. Its what humans are good at.

It used to be, except for the last 50 years or so in the western countries.

Uh no, it's more like there's been a lot of recent talk in Japan about bringing back ww2 era practices like state-sponsored shintoism. It's not just patriotism.

Good for them. Personal beliefs aside, an official religion has the objective advantage of uniting the population and promoting social trust.

That and preferring robots rather than immigrants and Japan will outlive us all.

The government probably doesn't mind this. I'm not sure there's much of a deliberate policy though. Probably the case that the industry is adapting to a rightward shift in society.

An official religion is a bad, bad, idea because it pushes what should be a personal choice on everyone.

No.

Yes, it's propaganda to get the youth of Japan to vote for politicians wishing to void Article 9 of the constitution.

I also noticed an increased in cute girls in the last few years as well.

Not at all. In fact I would argue that there was much more militarism throughout the 80s and 90s, and has been replaced largely with Moe and High School romcoms.
