In June, the Japanese Communist Party won 17 seats in the Tokyo Assembly election, making them the main opposition party against the conservative Liberal Democratic Party.

Last month, they went from six seats to 11 in the lower house election.

The gains were partially due to low voter turnout and net-based cartoon mascots!

Now, imagine what if--and this is a what-if question--the JCP had been the ruling party in japan's Diet instead of the LDP? What would Japan be like then?

JCP only holds 8 seats in the diet making it a distant 6th in power. Comunist is somewhat of a misnomer for this party which has no plans of overturning the capitalist economic framework, instead is very nationalisic, looking to break free of American control to attain true sovereignty.

The main problem with it I see is honestly the US' reaction to it. Which right now is hidden behind so much middle eastern bullshit that the States probably will solve that problem sometime after we're finish flailing about Russia and our slowly deteriorating infrastructure.

However, I do now it will probably hurt the sale of Anime in the States if they ever did gain majority in the diet. Americans, though not publicly. Still see Communism as the boogie man coming to rape and pillage all that it good and American in the world. LOL. But, anywho, Anime would be seen as propaganda more than entertainment. Probably be made illegal. Its something that would be worth looking into.
