Yes, I think it would be interesting to see. Don't know that the US military has ever done anything like this.

Sounds like SOMEONE liked Hetalia!!!

But it does sound cute. And nothing like a co-op to ensure a good friendship. Smile

Aw, it looks cute. I wanna read it Very Happy

EDIT:
And I do mean cute in the "this might possibly be rather strange or profane if they wanna go that route" way.

Listening to this cute little voice say (in obvious Engrish), "I'll f*cking rip you a new a**hole" (without censors) just made my day. Thank you ANN.

Well a couple years ago the Navy made a manga to help promote the arrival of the USS George Washington in Japan.

Wouldn't it be terribly ironic if they made a manga about the Berne Convention and it was 0-day scanlated?

Anyway, this will be a pretty damn interesting popular culture commentary on international relations with a straightforward perspective. I'd really like to read this if someone does scanlate it.

Also my initial response Laughing
I don't want to own it, but I sure want to *ahem* "preview" this. Must go find a stream......

Gods... thinking of ringtones, wonder if I can sneak it on my husband's phone without him noticing Razz

That sounds interesting, since it's a joint project I doubt it'll be controversial or anything but seeing the history of the US-Japan military alliance in manga form would at the very least be amusing.

Sounds like a propaganda plan to ease the tension surrounding the Marine Corps Base on Okinawa. Sweet Cool

I was suprised to see Maritan creators getting involved. I remember seeing this Youtube video of Sargent Maritan (which by the way is hilarious and NSFW). I would like to see this US armed force/Japanese joint project manga.
