Manga Propoganda

Over this weekend on one of my feeds I noticed this news update. I am talking about the Propaganda that the Japanese released with their Prince Pickles mascot is definitely much to think about.

After World War 2, one of the results was that Japan would not have a military at all and it has been for a long time, apparently now the Japanese can have the military again. So they’ve came up with this cutesy character… and apparently people are objecting to it.. but then what about the Olympic mascots that China is coming up with then.. what about the various mascots like the American eagle? This is a silly thing to get pissed off about.

Even if there’s much to be pissed off about.. then what about Germany and their wartime atrocities or Italy? This is a double standard..
