    Yes but imperial Japan lost the war and modern Japan took over a big part of the media which is one of the most powerful methods of manipulation in the modern day.

    Modern Japan also did it without having to enslave, genocide or rape people.

    Nah I don't think the next topic of marketing will be food. At least not that vague. I don't see games inherently unrelated to food suddenly bringing up some shokugeki no souma kind-of gamemode LOL

    Enslaving? No. Genocide? Debatable. The Japanese wanted submission from the Chinese, not enslavement. The cruelty brought about by the hands of the IJA was due to the fact that the Chinese refused to surrender after they pretty much occupied every important part of the country. Genocide wasn't on the list, rather the Japanese saw the Chinese as a great asset if they would have cooporated. In terms of raping people, every army was guilty of that. The IJA definitely did so, but so did the Red Army and the Wehrmacht, even the allies were guilty of this to some extent (although way less so.) I'm not defending the war crimes committed by the Japanese, they definitely were far worse in many instances then other armies.

    We've had a Spanish artist make some food gijinkas out of Spanish food and it was super funny. She even drew a few of them, in full detail, and they were incredibly cool.

    war bad

    I liked the fact Mirai Nikki had a enjoyable even if wicked plot. However I hated the protagonist just like I hate any yanderes because it's the most toxic personality you can find around and it just gets on my nerves.

    Oh that is nice, we had a Manga about a portuguese Girl that cooked a ton of portuguese food.

    Also could we not derail this conversation into some Nanking Massacre apolegism thread, please?

    As always I think liking a show or not is pretty subjective.

    Of course there's undeniably shit shows like Boku no Pico or a few trash animes made for the sake of... I don't even know, sometimes great productions are released and some other times we get Hunt Down The Freeman.

    I'll finish it with a quick logic play.

    Absolute Territory = Good
    No Absolute Territory = Bad
    Imperial Japan = No AT
    Modern Japan = Yes AT

    Result is
    Modern Japan = Good
    Imperial Japan = Bad
