There's not enough information. We don't know anything about their ideologies or goals(besides world domination). Should we consider it's the same as the germany from our world? It's the same problem SaiKano had.

>>155462571
they sent a 12 year old loli to a life-threatening front line position in their army
and also forced her to risk her life with various other experimental and very explosive technologies like that computation gem and the V-1 rockets

It was all done for a perfectly good reason, though, and turned out very well.

"America" is doing the same in the next season

I don't know man. Japanese (WWII) were pretty fucking bad in war, both literally and figuratively.
>>
>>155462571
Germans are always the bad guys.

>>155462571
Conquering another nation is a bad thing to do. Making another nation your bitch through "diplomatic" methods is good.

Did they even say who started the war in the anime? I'm sure it's in the light novel somewhere, but I don't remember that ever being discussed.

They never talked about this, rather than defending and surviving from aggressive neighbours. The annexations after the victory was a pretty stupid move, though.

Empire started getting its border poked by the not-French and not-Finns. Dakia, Russia, UK, and America later join in on the poking. The reason it all started was because the Empire was growing at a rapid rate and easily outpacing its neighbor nations in terms of technology and military strength.

Aggressive national growth is a powder keg.

This. That's why only axis war crimes got punished after WW2 while allied war crimes remained unpunished.

Internment of Japanese Americans?
Vaporising hundreds of thousands of civilians?
The worst part was with Churchill's attitude towards bombing- he actively avoided targeting military and economic structures (like power generation) to kill more civilians.

Possibly because the Allies weren't conducting industrialized genocide in their own nations and the ones they conquered?

>>155462571
Pretty much explained in one of the more recent episodes. They aren't "evil" in that they desire to murder everyone, rather instead they take pride in their country and have no problem going to war if they think it is necessary while also being damn good at it.

Taking pride in and being a little (too) logical in their conquests has caused other nations to fear them and want to wipe them out to get rid of the supposed threat of the empire. The setup in the new episodes is how them being too logical causes them to not realize they are hated and that the republic's army, despite losing its capital, will still fight to the last man.

Evil is relative
