It is just me or that Yinsen reminded me of Takachiho Isao from Senkou no Night Raid? Well, yes, their seiyuu are the same guy and his appearance almost look like him. Anyway, Yinsen and the Zodiac demanded the Japanese government to disband JSDF and the National Diet and remove the US troops in Japan. The removing of US troops is very similar to the issue about the US bases in Okinawa which most Japanese wanted them to get out. But the disbandment of the JSDF and National Diet is very imperialist and far right-wing which confuses me because is there any member of the Zodiac who is an ultra-nationalist? Idk about Yinsen since in the comics, he’s Chinese (the live-action movies didn’t state his nationality but it’s hinted that he’s an Arab) but his role here is more likely the spokesperson and a pawn of the Zodiac.
So, this is the Prime Minister?! LOL, so Koizumi is still PM?! I know that in the comics they use Obama’s or Bush’s appearance as the US president. But Koizumi? So, they didn’t use current PM, Naoto Kan?
Anyway, Tony was saved by Sakurai, who told him that he can’t do anything since the Defense Minister ordered him not to use the Ramon Zero. I had some suspicions on the Defense Minister since he’s very willing to exchange his life in favor of releasing the hostages in the arc station. But we never get to know what really happened to him after he was taken in by the Zodiac.
Is it just me or that Sakurai reminded me of Steven Seagal or Jean-Claude Van Damme?
Just like Isao, he’s nothing but a pawn
