Now, now, I said that this was a blursed TL, not a cursed TL.We need a tl with Chris Chan as president and after a major economic crash people start to live in shanty towns called cwcvilles.
What has became of anime? What pop culture does the world know? What does Germany export in terms of culture?
considering the axis won i don't think anime exists
Television does reach Japan, and cartoons as such do exist. However, given that there is less of a cultural exchange between the United States and Japan, "anime" culture does not develop in the same way, and tends to be limited to Japan. In other words, while there is "anime," there is no "oktaku" culture.Nazis love anime
Germany tends to be inward looking rather than outward, as most countries tend to be in this timeline. Following the German Civil War, the ruling clique of generals wanted to promote a Christian German culture rather than the Pagan one by the Nazis, with emphasis on great German rulers from the Middle Ages onward. The heavy emphasis on Luther, Bismark, and other great figures from Christian Germany are meant to prop up the largely conservative regime. Think Russia post-Soviet Union: attempting to downplay, and in some cases condemn the previous Nazi regime while attempting to co-opt symbols (e.g., Germania/Berlin) to appeal to the "height" of German power.
The Nazi Party and related organizations are banned (largely in response to Namibia), but that doesn't wholly deter Nazi nostalgia in some quarters. In the years leading to the Civil War, Germany began to experience an economic downturn which soured the Nazi regime in the eyes of many, making the transition to a conservative regime much more easier. However, that doesn't stop some from playing up old cultural facets of Nazi Germany, if only for the tourists. Volkwagens, Volksempfängers, Einheitsempfängers, Nazi-era football kits among others represent a simpler, triumphant, if not chaotic and oppressive time. Think East German ostalgie.
