I wouldn't worry -- there are plenty of manga and anime series where war and heroism is a given.  From Girls and Tanks (about high school club for girls which repair and then compete in WW2 tanks) to Gundam and Attack on Titan.  It's just that like everything else in Japan, there are mascots and anime characters representing the values of the grouping.  Train stations, police stations, towns, prefectures, all have characters.  MBAs talk about having visions all the time, shouldn't worry about those people more?  You'd think we would prefer having leaders who are grounded in reality instead.
The unlikely association of Japan’s Self-Defense Forces with adorable anime characters could reflect a deep-seated discomfort with the nation’s military history. Credit Photograph from Flickr

this type of thing was mentioned in a biopsychology class back in the mid 1980s at my university.  It was mentioned as an outlier situation and then promptly ignored because it didn't fit the typical functional mapping of different parts of the brain.  Can't ruin a good theory with bad examples can you.
In 2007, a 44-year-old happily married man with a white-collar job and two children visited a hospital in Marseille, France complaining of mild weakness in his left leg. Some time later, he concluded...

Hey there.  You responded positively to my B&W short film of Depeche Mode's "Blasphemous Rumours"!  Unfortunately, it's hosted on someone else's YouTube due to copyright: (https://youtu.be/xT4Kw3A0pHI).  

Would you take a look at a silly dark comedy I made as well, on my personal YouTube?  I'm trying to get channel subscriptions, which will aid me in finding money to make an indie film:  A moody TRAGIC GHOST STORY, using -- you guessed it -- a few Depeche songs.  (I think their music is extraordinarily cinematic, and it's time someone used it in feature films.)

I apologize for seeking your support in such a crass manner, but things are competitive out there in the world of cinema these days -- and demonstrating, via YouTube, that people will follow my work will go a long way toward convincing financiers to make the film happen.  Here's the link to the comedy on my personal Channel.  Please subscribe and leave a comment!

...and thanks for the gracious comment on the Depeche film!

I started shopping at Fandom II when they were on Rideau Street over the restaurant La Gargotte. Later they moved on Laurier near Ottawa U, where they stayed for a few years. Later they moved to their current location. Fandom II has been the main supply store for gamers in the Ottawa area since the early 1980s. RPG games (at least a dozen different ones), figurines, microarmor, strategy games, novels, books by Osprey Publishing on historical topics, dice, board games (Catan, Carcassonne, many others). I highly recommend it; I go back for a visit when I am in Ottawa.
