This morning, Japan just released a new educational anime via Youtube that teaches young Japanese kids about the current nuclear crisis. It's a short 5 minute video called "Nuclear Boy Has a Stomachache". In this cute, humorous, chibi-styled video, the narrator explains how the doctors are trying to prevent Nuclear Boy from pooping all over the place.

If you haven't seen the video, you can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sakN2hSVxA

The symbols in the film and what they mean:
Nuclear Boy = nuclear plant in Fukushima
Doctors = people working to stop the meltdown
Poop = toxic waste (pardon the pun, of course ^^)
Fart = radiation

Have you seen this video? If so what do you think of the film?

I think it's a pretty hilarious bit of propaganda.

While it is a comedic piece, its levels of symbolism is excellent. I had some laughs out of it, but the later half made me emotional (what?!?).Nice to see the people of Japan raising awareness and showing their struggle with a symbolic method.
