No worries Drakos.Amatras.
I think the Burmese government was the most recent example. Honestly I try not to linger on these things and I don’t really take it personally.

Better examples, (maybe?)

Okinawa just wrote up an anti-American piece shortly after this was published.
I remember during Operation Desert Storm, Kuwait requested military aid to oust Iraqi invaders from their country. Then when our soldiers arrived they made our troops remove the American flags from their uniforms because it offended them. Instead of telling them to take a hike, we complied.

    It’s nice to see gratitude at all. I remember a lot of ingrate nations just taking our aid for granted, snapping up food whilst simultaneously flipping us the bird. Burma/Myanmar comes foremost to mind.

  • Dragon Ball Super “Super Slow!”:
    This episode was almost entirely done in the Philippines. If you see a shitty Toei anime, check the ending credits and you will probably find “Toei Phils.” or “TAP”, meaning it was outsourced there.

  • Dragon Ball Super: “How The Mighty Have Fallen!”:
    The wonders of outsourcing, my friends! Back in 1996, Dragonball Z was real anime with Japanese people animating every single cel. Now Toei is too cheap to employ their own people. This particular episode was outsourced to the Philippines.

  • Sore ga Seiyuu: “Masako Nozawa!”:
    Watched it. Looks like the technical aspects of the business are very accurate. But things like the main character falling into the business because she couldn’t get work anywhere else is pretty ridiculous. I’ll laugh and give this show mad props if they have an episode where she is forced to voice a hentai under a fake name to pay her bills just like real life.

  • Dragon Ball Super: “Why Was The Movie Made At All?”:
    Alright, well if it really is a retelling of the two movies like you say, then it is totally pointless because we already saw that. I really hope that isn’t true and we get something new.

  • Sore ga Seiyuu: “Masako Nozawa!”:
    I guess I’ll check out an episode. This doesn’t look like my kind of show at all, but I’ve always been curious about the seiyu biz. Somehow I doubt this is going to be a very accurate portrayal or anything.
