We all know that among the many themes expressed in many works of modern anime are some rather screwy notions of geopolitics. For example: Absolute pacifism is a viable form of international strategy (it isn't), and that the UN is to be treated with an almost worshipful level of reverence. But perhaps the oddest of them all is the notion that the US is at best irrelevant and at worst an enemy. Shows like Blood Plus depicted an American president who was scheming to seed the world with artificially-created vampires so that we could later destroy them in order to increase our influence worldwide. High School of the Dead had the US detonate a nuclear warhead above Japan for some mysterious reason. And shows like the entertaining yet politically-naive Ghost in the Shell: the Second Gig, depict this country in a manner which is anything except complimentary. The US usually winds up being swiftly neutralized by the villains of almost any given anime in a single maneuver, as if we were nothing more than an afterthought instead of the most powerful nation on earth. Of course, to be fair, in almost all of anime, the JSDF is depicted as being pretty much useless as well. And what's more, anime shows set outside of Japan are almost never set in America. Has anyone else noticed this?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
