Some historical Hetalia junk.
Hungarian Revolution :3
"Kamikaze were suicide attacks by military aviators from the Empire of Japan against Allied naval vessels in the closing stages of the Pacific campaign of World War II, designed to destroy warships more effectively than was possible with conventional attacks. During World War II, about 3,860 kamikaze pilots were killed, and about 19% of kamikaze attacks managed to hit a ship.
Kamikaze aircraft were essentially pilot-guided explosive missiles, purpose-built or converted from conventional aircraft. Pilots would attempt to crash their aircraft into enemy ships in what was called a “Body Attack” in planes laden with some combination of explosives, bombs, torpedoes and full fuel tanks; accuracy was much better than a conventional attack, the payload and explosion larger. A kamikaze could sustain damage which would disable a conventional attacker and still achieve its objective. The goal of crippling or destroying large numbers of Allied ships, particularly aircraft carriers, was considered to be a just reason for sacrificing pilots and aircraft.”

You know, it’s extremely difficult to tell since there’s a band covering his hair, but Japan is the pilot in the middle.
This is intriguing. Obviously it’s about Japan coming out of its Isolation period, and the civil war between the modern vs shogun ways of life. I’m sure there’s far more references of Japanese history correlating with Europe and America as well.
Only thing is, don’t know how I feel about the dancing and music. XD Doesn’t seem fitting lol
