When I was watched Goodbye Partner, I'm noticed spoiler[ there's a female president who looks like Hillary Clinton] and in Part 5, spoiler[ even Donald Trump made a cameo ( with black hair and different name)] I'm wonder what would they say about their cameos in Lupin the Third on Twitter.

Best cameo used to be obama in air gear until the author of Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru fell in love with putin.

Talking about cameos or veiled caricatures, how about in Read or Die where the US president (obviously George Bush) is continually frustrated by the power of the I-gen and Joker of the British Library/England to the point of urinating in his pants? Talk about obnoxious! Also, in Dokuro-chan we see Condolleezza Rice and George Bush as well as Kim Jong Ill.

Rice and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld appear in Blood+. They are negotiating with the villains to take over the world.

Donald Trump is transmogrified into one of his many antagonists, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, in the series Wacky TV Nanana. The Trump character is an agent of the American company "Nanazon" which has purchased a small, financially-struggling Japanese television station. Upon arrival he begins barking orders at the staff.



A variety of world figures appear in The Legend of Koizumi. It features former Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi Junichiro who heroically protects Japan by playing mahjong with the likes of the Kims from North Korea and the Chinese leadership. Koizumi's finishing move is unsurprisingly called "Rising Sun." The manga covers other matches with people like then-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko.

Perhaps the most surprising cameo I've seen recently is an appearance by Hello Kitty in the series Shinya! Tensai Bakabon, an over-the-top comedy about a family and their wacky friends.

There is also a woman who is obviously modeled on Nancy Pelosi briefly speaking in the Project Ito film, Genocidal Organ. And while not a cameo, in the Platinum End manga, one character wears a Trump mask.

Good for him! I hope they do use his tweet as a pull quote on the DVD/BR.

In American political figure anime cameos, there was that time Richard Nixon faked the moon landing on Time Bokan 24 (The episode is weird and wacky enough to watch on its own):
