16 Times Hitler Showed Up In Anime
When it comes to pop culture villains, Nazis are go-to bad guys that audiences can instantly hate. After all, who doesn't love to watch the Third Reich get clobbered in what's almost always an implicit victory for love and acceptance.
With the genre's fixation on ultimate evil, it's no surprise that anime and manga creators often rope Adolf Hitler into their stories. What's more surprising is the sheer variety of ways authors have come up with to justify Hitler's presence. Whether he's waging war on mythical creatures, spreading propaganda in the US, or attending high school as a clone, there seem to be no limits imposed on bizarre Hitler anime.
Some interpretations of Hitler paint him as a ruthless monster, whereas others have him pegged as a dopey goon. Luckily, none of these stories cast a positive light on the monstrous dictator's life, and more than a few present an opportunity for the heroes to take him down one more time.
Before you read, I made this without remenbering much from my history class.
So, if i remenber correctly, Japan wasn't very developed before the war, not like America and Europe at the period. So after WW 2 , Japan was kind of "destroyed" and then America occupied Japan til 1952 and did stuff like democratization ( i don't remenber). Then Japan had that period called "japanese economic miracle" for a few years where they developed very fast and technology developed blablabla. Thus making anime "flourish".
Well, to answer your question, we need first to analyze who he was, what he did during his life, and how it caused the outbreak of World War II, resulting in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
He was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of the German Reich, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure of the Holocaust.
Hitler was born in Austria, then part of Austria-Hungary, and raised near Linz. He moved to Germany in 1913 and was decorated during his service in the German Army in World War I. He joined the German Workers' Party, the precursor of the NSDAP, in 1919 and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923, he attempted a coup in Munich to seize power. The failed coup resulted in Hitler's imprisonment, during which time he dictated the first volume of his autobiography and political manifesto Mein Kampf. After his release in 1924, Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promoting Pan-Germanism, anti-Semitism, and anti-communism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler frequently denounced international capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewish conspiracy.
By 1933, the Nazi Party was the largest elected party in the German Reichstag, which led to Hitler's appointment as Chancellor on 30 January 1933. Following fresh elections won by his coalition, the Reichstag passed the Enabling Act, which began the process of transforming the Weimar Republic into Nazi Germany, a one-party dictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology of National Socialism. Hitler aimed to eliminate Jews from Germany and establish a New Order to counter what he saw as the injustice of the post-World War I international order dominated by Britain and France. His first six years in power resulted in rapid economic recovery from the Great Depression, the effective abandonment of restrictions imposed on Germany after World War I, and the annexation of territories that were home to millions of ethnic Germans—actions which gave him significant popular support.
Hitler sought Lebensraum for the German people. His aggressive foreign policy is considered to be the primary cause of the outbreak of World War II in Europe. He directed large-scale rearmament and on 1 September 1939 invaded Poland, resulting in British and French declarations of war on Germany. In June 1941, Hitler ordered an invasion of the Soviet Union. By the end of 1941 German forces and the European Axis powers occupied most of Europe and North Africa. Failure to defeat the Soviets and the entry of the United States into the war forced Germany onto the defensive and it suffered a series of escalating defeats. In the final days of the war, during the Battle of Berlin in 1945, Hitler married his long-time lover, Eva Braun. On 30 April 1945, less than two days later, the two killed themselves to avoid capture by the Red Army, and their corpses were burned.
Under Hitler's leadership and racially motivated ideology, the Nazi regime was responsible for the genocide of at least 5.5 million Jews and millions of other victims whom he and his followers deemed Untermenschen and socially undesirable. Hitler and the Nazi regime were also responsible for the killing of an estimated 19.3 million civilians and prisoners of war. In addition, 29 million soldiers and civilians died as a result of military action in the European Theatre of World War II. The number of civilians killed during the Second World War was unprecedented in warfare, and constitutes the deadliest conflict in human history.
So yes, as you can see, his aggressive foreign policy is considered to be the primary cause of the outbreak of World War II in Europe. If you want to imply that the World War II caused America to invade Japan, that's probably correct. But in my opinion the World War II would have happened even without Hitler. The treaty of Versailles was harsh enough to Germans to leave Germany angry and wanting revenge, whilst it was not harsh enough to stop Germany waging war. As such I think whilst it is highly likely another war would have happened, it is unlikely it would have been as brutal and the overall narrative would be very different (probably no Holocaust).
And besides, how can you tell that USA wouldn't have bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki without the World War II in Europe(which, as you claim, was the factor responsible for the development of anime)? There are many reasons why Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, among them the Japanese imperialism. America wanted Japan to withdraw from north Indo-China. Japanese were eager to take control of Asia but Americans won’t allow it. So they had only two options either to fight for control or just keep silent. And Japanese were on the way to emerge as the strongest naval power but America stood in their way. So Japanese wanted to clean their competitor and earn the title. Not to mention, that, America had not overcome the loss and outcome of World War I and they did not want to involve in another war that can take many lives. The Japanese thought that their idea of surprise attack was too powerful that would destroy the American navy and all its hopes.
In other words, the war between Japan and America could have happened without the existence of Hitler, since, as you can see, he had very little to do with the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Message to Adolf
Message to Adolf (アドルフに告ぐ, Adolf ni Tsugu), known in earlier English versions as Adolf, is a manga series made by Osamu Tezuka. The story is set before, during, and after World War II and is centered on three men with the name Adolf. Adolf Kamil is an Ashkenazi Jew living in Japan. His best friend Adolf Kaufmann is of both Japanese and German descent. The third Adolf is Adolf Hitler, the dictator of Germany. Adolf also features Sohei Toge, a Japanese reporter, and his quest for documents that could turn the tide of the war. The work explores the themes of nationality, ethnicity, racism, and war, and includes elements of coming of age, spy fiction, and historical drama.
Vertical, Inc. currently publishes the series in English with Kumar Sivasubramanian as the translator, and Viz Media formerly published the series in English. It is considered the last completed serialized work of Tezuka's career.
The story of Adolf begins in 1936 as Japanese reporter Sohei Toge travels to Berlin to cover the Berlin Olympic Games. Upon arriving, he finds that his younger brother, who has been studying in Germany as an international student, has been murdered and had connections with Communist organisations. Furthermore, all traces of information regarding his younger brother's study in Germany has vanished. Investigating the matter, he later learns that his brother's murder is connected to documents he mailed to Japan with information regarding Adolf Hitler. This information is crucial to the Third Reich as it contains proof that Adolf Hitler has Jewish blood.
A member of the Nazi Party living in Japan named Wolfgang Kaufmann is ordered to find the documents. He expects his son, Japanese-German Adolf Kaufmann, to become a strong supporter of Adolf Hitler and the German Reich. However, Adolf Kaufmann is reluctant to follow his father's wishes, as his best friend Adolf Kamil is the son of German Jews. Wolfgang dies after complications regarding a search for the aforementioned document: with his dying breath, he forces Adolf Kaufmann (hereafter referred to as Kauffman) to go to Germany in order to join the Hitler Youth. While at the Hitler Youth academy, Kaufmann sees Kamil's father brought to execution after he comes to Europe to try and bring Jews to Japan through Shanghai. Kaufmann is forced to execute Kamil's father with a pistol as a loyalty test. As Kaufmann becomes more and more indoctrinated, in contrast his mother Yukie becomes more distant from her late husband's German ties. A test to Kaufmann's loyalty to the Reich comes when he falls in love with a German Jewish-Chinese girl, Eliza. He successfully smuggles her to his friend Kamil in Japan, but is unable to get her family to go. The Imperial Army invades China and begins the Second Sino-Japanese War, ushering in a period of fevered militarism and paranoia in Japan. During this time, Kamil becomes the confidant of one of his teachers, Ms. Ogi, who is involved in the Japanese anti-war movement.
As events progress, the lives of the three Adolfs intertwine and become more and more tangled as Sohei Toge searches for his brother's murderer. After being tortured by the Gestapo, Toge eventually tracks down his brother's girlfriend, who is revealed to be a spy working for her father, inspector Lampe. He confronts her in anger, and she confesses to reporting Isao to the SS. After a scuffle, he rapes her and leaves for Japan. Shortly afterwards, she commits suicide. In Japan, Toge quickly becomes a target for both Kenpeitai and German secret police, who routinely chase him down and beat him in an attempt to find the documents. Despite this, he links up with Ogi, and manages to recover the documents his brother sent to Kobe before he died. The documents change locations many times as Toge is unable to find a job due to his status as a suspect. During one of these pursuits, he makes friends with a Japanese police chief, who accompanies him on a chase to a Japanese island where Ogi is keeping the documents. However, a Gestapo team under Lampe seeking revenge for his daughter tracks him down there. Toge manages to evade Lampe after a heated firefight on the island. Though the chief is killed, a memo he wrote earlier absolves Toge of wrongdoing, and the Japanese police stop chasing him. To avoid further heat, the documents are passed to Ogi and then to Kamil, who is now living with Eliza. In 1941 with the German surprise attack on the Soviets, Toge decides that the documents would be best in the hands of Honda, a Japanese general's son working for a Soviet spy ring under Richard Sorge. Before Honda can send the documents to the Soviets, Sorge is captured and the spy ring collapses. Before Honda is executed by his father after confessing to treason, he manages to bury the documents.
In the years leading up to 1945, Kaufmann ascends the hierarchy of the Nazi party and completes his indoctrination as a Nazi. He eventually becomes a loyal subordinate of Hitler and a coordinator of death marches as an SS official. In the fallout of Operation Valkyrie and a Germany on the brink of collapse under an increasingly unstable Fuhrer, he is sent to Japan by a surviving Lampe to complete his father Wolfgang's mission. Upon arrival, he is surprised to find his target, Toge, married to his mother. He also meets with Kamil, who he is angered to find has become engaged to Eliza. He later traps Eliza and rapes her, and eventually beats Kamil who comes for revenge. During his alienation of his family and friends in Japan, he is disowned by Yukie, who shortly thereafter suffers brain damage during the Allied air raid of Kobe. Kaufmann's continued investigation eventually leads to the buried documents, which he discovers only after Hitler's death renders his entire mission pointless.
Kaufmann and Kamil later meet during the Israeli-Lebanese conflict in the 1960s, which sees countless atrocities on both sides. Kaufmann, who has joined the Lebanese after being constantly chased down by Israeli Nazi hunters, arrives home one day to see his Muslim wife and daughter murdered by Kamil's division. He begins a vendetta against Kamil, and challenges him to a duel. Kamil arrives and reveals his knowledge of his father's execution, and after a firefight, gains his revenge by gunning down Kaufmann.
In the 1980s, Toge arrives in Israel to visit Kamil's surviving family after he is killed in a bombing attack. He resolves to write a book called "Message to Adolf", recounting the stories of the three Adolfs, and what the concept of "justice" can lead to.

Shigeru Mizuki's Hitler
Japanese manga series
Shigeru Mizuki's Hitler, originally titled Gekiga Hitler (劇画ヒットラー, Gekiga Hittorā), is a manga by Shigeru Mizuki about the life of Adolf Hitler. In 1971 it began serialization in Weekly Manga Sunday. In November 2015, it was published in English by Drawn & Quarterly, translated by Zack Davisson.
Davin Arul of The Star, a Malaysian publication, stated that it uses Mizuki's "trademark style of putting almost sketchily-drawn cartoon characters in realistic, highly-detailed settings". Arul wrote that the Holocaust in this graphic novel is "used as a bookend and does not figure too much in between – possibly because Mizuki did not want the magnitude of it to eclipse the rest of his story."
The book has a two-page list of dramatis personae at the front of the book and a footnote index in the back that has fifteen pages.
Publishers Weekly described it as a "fresh take". It was ranked as a "Publishers Weekly Pick", and the work stated that it is "a candidate for the year’s best graphic novel."
Davin Arul wrote that a reader gets accustomed to the cartoonish art style despite it being initially "really jarring". Arul stated that the work is highly complex due to the amount of detail and that can "lose the reader".
