Is there a good political anime/manga? I googled "political manga" and similar terms to no avail.

Pic slightly related because I like stories about evil conspiracy.

This one...more so than any others I can think of

Wait, I don't watch the news. Is he not going to be your president now?

Race is not decided yet for the Democrats. At least that's what the pig-disgusting German media says.

For a currently airing series, Gundam 00

Enjoy

Akumetsu.

It covers things like: "THE ECONOMY IS STINKY SHIT.", "THE POLICE ARE FUCKING USELESS.", "YOU PIECE OF SHIT CORRUPTED POLITICIAN, I WILL KILL WITH AN AXE."

Needs more scanalations, though.
>>
Sanctuary. It is awesome. Its a bit old though, and possibly not so applicable anymore. I think it was written before the Japanese depression.
>>
>>10044237

And that´s not even an attempt at being funny, me thinks. It´s pretty nice all around, and the politics element is there. You just have to look deep between all the incessant pizza eating and the wall running.

>>10044224
Phoenix Wright. It's almost political.
>>
>>10044288
Thanks. Just googled for images of the show. Seems like a nice manga. Don't know if it's about politics the way I expect, but I'll give it a try anyway.
>>
>>10044322
Thanks. Sounds very interesting.
>>
There is this... What is it called... Yugo the Negotiator or something like that.
About some guy who negotiate and shit, with some political stuff involved.
>>
>>10044288
Sounds realistic enough for me.

Tons of politicians are corrupt, they get assassinated all the time, and plenty of economies are in the shitter.

Sounds realistic enough to me.

Gundam SEED Destiny.
Cagalli = Hillary
Shinn = Obama
Lacus = McCain

Excel Saga manga if you want political humor. No, really.

The main hero also has superpowers and likes to cosplay.

I snorted.

>>10044419
Sounds realistic.

Sounds unrealistic.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes
it's mainly space battles and stuff, but the political subthemes play a major role.
>>
Jin Roh. Watch Jin Roh. It represents the political turmoil of Japan just after WW2. Although of course it's slightly different to reality.... Bear in mind this is a film, not a series.
>>
Ghost in the Shell
Jin Roh
Patlabor
>>
>>10044469
oh, and which one of them wins?
>>
>>10044590
THIS.

EAGLE by Kaiji Kawaguchi, it's about American election, too.
>>
>>10044657

Ghost in the Shell was more about society than politics, wasn´t it?

But nice one on Patlabor. That did have some politics in it, as well as giant robots. It´s one of the mecha shows that really has the characters become the center of the anime, and not just the robot.

I also liked Daiguard because of that, and it also has some politics in it the same way Patlabor did. Pity it never ended...

>>10044590
Thank you. Wikipedia says it's an anime adaptation of a very popular novel, not a light novel. I should read the novel and watch its anime version.

>>10044595
>>10044657
>>10044709
Hmm... Added anime-to-watch list. Maybe I'll try Jin Roh first among them.
>>
>>10044709

Daiguard is mostly office politics, though.
>>
Oops. I forgot to say thanks to /a/ll in >>10044817. More recommendations and opinions are appreciated.
