Didn't Duke Togo snipe Trump's phone out of his hands so he can't tweet?

Seems like an accurate portrayal.

I see that the anime is at this arc now. The arc that the author didn't give a shit anymore about his series and just goes all out. Laughing

I hope for the dub they get a good impersonator. Obama got a more flattering appearance in Osomatsu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4Tv1mq3MXU

I just read the manga's last 15 chapters to compare them to the anime's finale, and they actually toned down his speech. In the manga, he says "So all bets are off now. Steal, rape, kill - do your worst. As of this moment, murder is legal." I'm surprised the anime even kept Trump's appearance.

A little disappointed the article didn't compare the speech here to the manga version, but I'm glad the forum brought that up too.

A 100% accurate depiction of the Apricot Hellbeast.

So this site is trying to pull a CNN/MSNBC kind of garbage, sad! I come here for anime news not this political leftist propaganda bullshit they're trying to promote lately in ANN I have noticed, such a shame. Confused glad I dropped that trash anime inuyashiki.


This scene was in the manga (they actually toned it down), which ended awhile ago. All they did was report on it. If you don't like it, blame the writer.

Well, thing is it is really good material for comedy that the US, the leader of the western democratic world, elected as a president, a clown. Its a very important historical fact: before 2017 the world's most powerful military power never had a clown as their top leader. So I guess it's natural that a lot of comedy material can be made out of it.


I think the good thing about trump, perhaps the only thing, is it gets rid of this stupid American exceptionalism meme that the US is the "leader of the western democratic world". It's not. Its just another country. Sure withe a bloody big army/navy/air-force, and a huge economy, but just one of the many countries in the world.

Plus, yes he is good to laugh at!

It's not even hyperbole. There's plenty of past evidence of behavior to go off of to say that, yes, Trump would most likely really say something like that. It's difficult to say otherwise (and you can make of that what you will…).

@Aquamine-Amarine How is posting news about an anime not (anime) journalism? It is labeled an interest article, so it's not like they are passing it off as news.

The ones who inserted the politics into this anime are the producers and originally the mangaka.

I'm pretty sure Trump would actually be pretty happy with this depiction. "You're goddamn right I'd be frank if an asteroid was heading towards the Earth!" Laughing
