          I don't know, maybe because not getting killed by Godzilla is a preferable alternative to getting killed by Godzilla. Also if you watch films by Japanese directors who came of age during the war they are very critical of Japan for the way it treated its people as disposable and place the blame for American occupation and industrialization on the Japanese leaders who allowed it and made it worse by pushing traditional honor values into companies as if they were family. The anti-American attitude you see in later Japanese movies came from directors who were too young or not alive to remember the war so they blame America for all of their problems and feel like they were robbed the opportunity to live in their own unique culture because they never experienced just how horrible Japan was during the WWII era. I don't know if Godzilla Minus One adopted the old attitude to be a throwback to the earliest Japanese WWII movies or if it indicates the pendulum swinging back and younger Japanese filmmakers realizing Japan deserves some of the blame for their own actions, but I guess time will tell.

        Currently watching this, and I'm annoyed by official subitltes.
        They are constantly wrong, I don't even speak Japanese but I have seen most of this pharases in anime, and know they are improper.
        For example, the woman says:
        >sumimasen
        And the subtitle says "I don't know"
        when sumimasen actually means "I'm sorry"
        It feels like watching goddam dub titles.

        You are moronic? The whole theme is survival's guild, everyone tell if he had killed himself everything would have been fine. When at the same time, demonstrating that even if he had died, it wouldn't have changed anything, like it's strongly implies even if he had tried to shoot Godzilla in the beginning, he wouldn't have been able to damage it.

              >The practice had been widely praised in army propaganda, which featured a soldier captured by the Chinese in the Shanghai Incident (1932) who returned to the site of his capture to perform seppuku.[41] In 1944, Hideyoshi Obata, a Lieutenant General in the Imperial Japanese Army, committed seppuku in Yigo, Guam following the Allied victory over the Japanese in the Second Battle of Guam.[42] Obata was posthumously promoted to the rank of general.
              >Many other high-ranking military officials of Imperial Japan would go on to commit seppuku toward the latter half of World War II in 1944 and 1945,[43][34] as the tide of the war turned against the Japanese, and it became clear that a Japanese victory of the war was not achievable.[44][45][46]

              The Japanese system was based on a Prussian model of total obedience, combined with their moronic honor system and zealousness for their God emperor, there was very little tolerance of failure.

          They knew that which is why this would only work if done quickly. The US exerting power was inevitable either way.
          In the like 3 battles that actually decided if this strategy would work both sides constantly acted like blind idiots, which is understandable since nobody in history had ever done anything remotely similar.
          But the American blind idiots consistently stumbled on the right spot at the right time due to some drunk moron not following any orders.
          Not maintaining their expansion is different from complete surrender, they could have kept going for a decade if they really wanted. The nukes weren't that big of deal, fire bombings killed more people and everyone knew there weren't that many nukes already produced at that time. Over time it doesn't matter even a little bit in the face of overwhelming propaganda so to actually win they would have to defend their home island while also producing top tier kino.

    There was never a single moment when Japan could have won the war. They started the war out of desperation with a flawed understand of American capabilities and objectives. Pearl Harbor was a Hail-Mary play to take out as many American carriers as possible to force a quick peace on generous terms; they did not manage to sink even one. Even the Japanese understood by Midway (1942) at the latest that the war was lost. The next three years were merely settling how total the defeat would be.

      Their mistake was assuming the US was organized and capable. They couldn't predict that some lost moron with no fuel would find their carriers at the worst possible moment. Japan had kamikaze attack pilots but the US apparently had kamikaze scouts.

      Japanese had no problems committing war crimes themselves.
      For example, they would use the red cross markings on ships carrying ammo, yet their massive barges carrying prisoners as human cattle would be left unmarked, leading to several incidents of PoW ships being sunk by their own guys.

      People were crushed, starved and dehydrated in those ships, there was no natural light, no airflow, they were forced in there and the latch was shut.

      The nuclear bombs weren't even a consideration in the decision to surrender. The IJN had been destroyed or forced to port for lack of fuel and that summer literally the 40 (FORTY) largest cities bar Edo had been destroyed in nights of single firebombing comparable or worse than the atomic bombings. The IJA had no real air defences to stop these bombings, and their economy wasn't like Germany's that had almost a century of industrialization building multiple redundancies for every level and loop of supply chains. Submarine warfare had obliterated their merchant marine and mining endangered transport in between the islands. Their last gambit was forcing the Allies to take as many casualties as possible, but because of the Casablanca Conference's call for unconditional surrender (undesirable because it could put the position of the Emperor at risk) they were hoping for the USSR to mediate a peace agreement. When Stalin declared war they had to face the music.

      By Unconditional surrender to the US meaning they no longer have their autocracy. The US spent billions rebuilding Japan as they felt a moral obligation to do so, then the Korean war broke out in the 50s. The closest ally in the region for the US was Japan, so the US had Japan start manufacturing goods for the war and that was a huge boost to the Jap economy. Early on they did what all young nations do and steal intellectual property, infringe on copyrights etc. Then eventually branched out into their own products, companies like Honda and Sony eventually making their mark with products better than anywhere else in the world.

    frick no. The Kamikaze were an act of last ditch desperation by General Tojo. The Japanese were outmanned, and outgunned 5:1 by the USA. it got to the point where they were demanding women and children fight and die for Japan. The nukes were the last bit of "back the frick off" until they got the goddamn point, because Eisenhower and Patton were preparing to march onto Japanese soil and start physically removing members of the military and Parliament.
