Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, what do you get when you mix the demon king with a valient hero? The best team to help solve the world's economic problems.
Magi, while a shounen series, it involves an impressive amount of political thought and strategy.

That's about all I got


I'll add my vote for Maoyuu Moaou Yuusha. I will also add Spice and Wolf. Let's face it economics and politics are VERY heavily entwined.

One could construe Fullmetal Alchemist or Brotherhood as being political, but few anime are quite as political as Code Geass.

To be honest, I don't think any anime that fits that criteria would be suitable for broadcast- both for political and popularity (or lack thereof) issues...

Well... I guess Death Note. It's not really fully based on politics, but it's kinda involved with government, since it's suspense/mystery and fantasy.

I know. Still reasonably disgusting.

Adding my vote for Maoyuu. I liked the political stuff of Gundam Wing personally (since there doesn't seem to be a restriction on old anime), even if most issues end up solved by raining death out of oversized robots.

Eden of the East
Eden of the East: The King of Eden
Eden of the East: Paradise Lost

My personal favorites when it comes to political fiction/thriller.

Legend of the Galatic Heroes (reminds me of a more political Star Wars).

12 Kingdoms (simply the best).

Saiunkoku Monogatari (first season is much better than the second).

All very, very good and well worth a watch. I think my favorite of all would be 12 Kingdoms - there is no other series that mixes such excellent characterization, world building, high fantasy and intriguing politics as brilliantly as this one. You really get the entire viewpoint from Emperor, to usurper, from common citizens to soldiers; from immortals to children, to adults, to people in an entirely different world...etc. And I highly suggest the light novels as well.

I think Naruto Shippuden would be a good example of showcasing politics the wrong way. >_>

Such lewdness.

Stay away from Log Horizon. It's really just about loli.

Heartily seconding this recommendation. And you get economics to go with your politics.



Thirded.




Also, look into any of the Universal Century Gundam series. The movie trilogy for the original is prob the best way to get into it.

second Saiunkoku Monogatari . It actually somewhat ditches romance in favor of politics

unfortunately i don't think there's a legal way to watch it (funi allowed their license to expire T_T), but there's always the dark side

Maoyu is a great choice.

FMA; I've only watched Brotherhood, but that certainly had some political maneuvering in it. A bit stilted, given the universe, but the descriptions of how the Xing empire worked was particularly interesting.

Other anime that has had at least some political maneuvering:
- The Ambition of Oda Nobuna (more accurate than you would expect--except for the cute-girl-as-daimyo thing)
- Spice and Wolf (general where it concerns the interactions of the Church and various city-states)
- The Eccentric Family (deals some with the inter-species politics of one city, though the explanations are somewhat lacking)
- A Certain Magical Index (deals with international relations of its particular sci-fi world; the politics only comes once every few episodes, but what is there isn't bad.)
- Log Horizon (already mentioned); I haven't watched S2 yet, though there is some in S1.
- Crest of the Stars: haven't watched the sequel yet (Banner of the Stars), so not sure if the political discussions continue past the first episodes.

Finally, there are a number of shows that hint at behind-the-scenes political maneuvering, but don't show much on camera:
- Attack on Titan:
- Valkyria Chronicles
- Arpeggio of Blue Steel
- Full Metal Panic (and Second Raid--not Fumofu, which is slap-stick Rom-Com)
- Eden of the East
- Eureka Seven
- Noragami
- Inari Kon Kon
- Otome Youkai Zakuro
- Nanana's Buried Treasure

Of course, there is nothing on this list of Game of Thrones or West Wing caliber, at least in terms of depictions of behind-the-scenes politicking, but that's a pretty high bar anyway.

Also, I omitted bad shows (although please note that mileage may vary), and a number of these (particularly Spice and Wolf, Eureka Seven, and FMA Brotherhood) are excellent viewing, irrespective of the political discussions.
