This is sort of interesting... The US Navy is publishing a manga about the USS George Washington as a way of trying to not scare the fuck out of the Japanese, as it's now stationed off the coast or something.
I-I... I'm not sure how I feel about that... on one level I think it's cool, on another level, absurd. I can easily see how this could become a very one-sided "YAY AMERICA!" propaganda piece.
