So, let's be clear: Were these two living under a fascist military police state? I never noticed it when I was young, but, now that I am older and more politically aware the show sure seems to take place under; hell even glorifying the righteousness of a military police state governed by, near, fascist political power. They even call the head of the goverment "The fuiër." Am I wrong /a/?
I was just thinking late 19th century imperialist western power but that does make sense
>>4570 a lot of the earlier episodes were about showing all the secret human experimentation the state was doing

>>4570 It's also worth noting that the state has nearly unlimited reach and potential. There are many instances were the military just barge into peoples homes for various reason with out probable cause. When Ed and Major Armstrong go to that village and encounter Dr. Mooreo; After being denied access to information on the Dr's research into the philosophers stone Armstrong mentions "You could have taken it by force you know." Which really cements the unlimited potential of the state. That's not some random soldier, or, Even ed or Ale. That's a high ranking military commander.
>>4570 The author did base parts off of real incidents of imperialism. But the government did play an antagonist role which becomes more obvious.
>>4574 And the characters mostly start fighting against it, too.
>>4569 Well I mean Bradley IS called the Fuhrer. TBH I never understood the hype for this show. It had some cool moments and animation and a decent story, but if you listen to some people talk about it you'd think it was the second coming of christ. Often enough they're also HxH fags as well.
>>4596 >TBH I never understood the hype for this show. Your question is too vague but I'll try to answer it. •The characters have fun, interesting and cool personalities with enough complexity to keep the audience engage. •The setting and power system are detailed and unique enough for it to stand out from the crowd. •The series is long enough convey it story properly and doesn't overstay it's welcome. •The plot doesn't trip over itself and goes to shit. •It's dark but still hopeful. •It's "anime" but not too "anime" for a general audience making it great for beginners. There are more reasons but I made my point.It's a very well rounded series which can be enjoyed by a wide audience.
>>4615 You made excellent points with a simple explanation, thanks for clarifying
