What do you guys think about the anti-American patriotism that was present in every sci-fi show about alien invaders made in the last century?
Define anti-American patriotism
>mfw you probably talking about Imperialism
>mfw I have no face
All in all I don't care. As long as the story holds and the propaganda does not become annoying I am well up for it.
>Any show with alien invaders.
So like this anon said >>124570538 you're talking about imperialism.
>Often they even use nuclear bombs, like the Gamilus.
It depends on the work. Even Barefoot Gen portrayed sympathetic Americans while also being about the horrors of Nuclear war.
But the Gamillas are clearly inspired by Nazi Germany, at least visually.
Their motives don't really line up with any modern super power (planet destruction soon, need new land).
Do you consider their anti war culture as an anti-American propaganda?
OP I am really confused. The Japanese have been struggling for years with the after effects of the atomic bombs. Yet again they constantly recognise and actually admire Amercans and the american culture. Japan is the other country that plays baseball and trust me when I say it's pretty big there.
OP I can think of at least one Sci-Fi anime that definitely takes the piss out of America. But it doesn't fit your guide lines at all.
Honestly you're being such a dumbass that I won't even mention it.
>Arguing about the nordics
>Not recognising their true superiority
>Thinking that population matters
It's all about the moneyz and who controls ir nigga
You still don't make a point
>yes the country with a population larger than Greece is relevant
Yes, using the word 'irrelevance' to dispute whether a country is relevant or not is just trying to weasel my way out of saying anything rather than directly contradicting the point.
You started with the whole argument over "relevant" or not. Which is meaningless, you don't even qualify what you fucking meany by being "relevant". Relevant to your day to day life? Relevant to this discussion? Relevant to how much angus stool you ate today?
Do you think that Cuba does well on 'moneyz'? it was the 'Caribbean has relevant countries because Cuba has a modest population' guy who even brought up population. Regardless Sweden, you are still irrelevant.
The blatant anti-America shit that seems to plague a lot of older anime really puts me off. It's just kind of annoying and it ruins the fun I would have with some shows. Like damn, it's one thing to have pride for you country, but why actively shit on others?
I know why, but it leaves a sour taste in my mouth.
typical retarded yuropoor. Go on fucking /int/ or even /pol/ and look at the flags.
yuros are super salty and constantly shit on the U.S while I see a bunch of americucks going "yea we suck XD lol."
Happens all the time with the exception of the U.K as of late but the U.K was the worst back in 08.
Matsumoto has some weird politics.
He obv loves imperial japan, and in that way is mildly fascistic. However his work is also full of 70's jap communism about world peace.
When i rewatched Yamato last year i kept wondering, are the Gamilus supposed to be the Americans? Well, no, not really. They're Hitler+Germany.
So Yamato takes the instruments and spirit of Imperial Japan and turns it to fight its true historical ally, Nazi Germany.
In other words he's trying to alleviate the guilt that Japan fought on the "wrong" side of WWII. Trying to have his cake and eat it too.
