  • I don’t have a problem with politics in anime or any kind of media, however, it has to be done right. I think if a show is going to implement real-world politics they should explore the concept rather than pushing an agenda. An example would be a show about let’s say immigration. The show should look at the issue of immigration and try to paint it as inherently good or bad, it should look at possible outcomes, benefits, detriments, etc. One of the big hurdles with politics in anything is that it’s rather volatile so if you’re too blatant with it then it might not be received too well.

  • It depends on how it’s implemented.
    The problem with talking about politics in anime is that it will be filled with the countries views (You can’t expect every county to have the same ideals as yours).
    There was an anime years back that got in trouble because they sneaked in a message of support for a shrine that china hates.

      • Hmmm I think a combination of both but I think most y’all about the current political climate

      • I don’t think it necessarily has to be the US it could just be about politics in general.

      • Politics changes depending on where you are.
        The entire reason we vote for a representative is so that your area can be heard.
        General politics: pot-hall and a lack of funding.

        T-o I have watched the parliament channel, most of the time it’s very mundane (barely anyone in there).

  • I agree with the first commentor. I find that discussion about politics and such in anime can be really fascinating. Usually the writers illustrate both sides well even if they ultimately portray one as the correct version. They don’t belittle the audience or simplify it too much. However, I just don’t like it when they’re specifically referencing something in real life and then taking sides. Typically it ends up being a lot more bias and forced. So general political tones are cool, but I’d rather they keep it in hypotheticals and not making the real world example appear
