Trust me, the Chinese do still hate the Japanese. Some Koreans do as well.

That being said, I wouldn't take that poll very seriously at all. If Japan was so hated, its products, culture, and flavor wouldn't be famous and popular around the world.

Plus its not the only nation that had war crimes, United States(atomic bomb anyone?), UK, Germany, Italy, Russia and many other countries did their share of war crimes too. I dont see them apologizing still to this day. Sickening. Move on Earth. keep history in mind but move on.


Unfortunately there is a widely reported trend of history denial in Japanese schools at the moment, which is one of the reasons the other countries in the region have been so riled up in the last decade. Of course there are other factors at play, such as China wanting to flex its political muscles in the area, but completely writing out embarrassing elements of history from school text books is not a good sign for the long term.

In terms of other countries, I can't speak for everyone but here in the UK there are a lot of embarrassing mistakes that show up in our history lessons, such as the idiocy of the Amritsar Massacre. In terms of apologies, in 2003 the UK apologised for some of its actions in the War of 1812. Apologies are a useful tool in diplomacy; if the apology is for a historic incident then it costs the current government little but buys a lot of good will from the offended party.

I absolutely agree with you, i find it sick and twisted how other countries still demand an apology from a nation that was in a different state of mind and had different people in its government in that time era. that happend well over 80 years ago! Japan has well learned its lesson from its war crimes, whats even more sickening is Germany demanded them to apologize too! um excuse me germany look at your own time period and apologize then. Japan is a different country today. Well more respectful and better governs itself and wont try to have the imperialistic mind again. Plus its not the only nation that had war crimes, United States(atomic bomb anyone?), UK, Germany, Italy, Russia and many other countries did their share of war crimes too. I dont see them apologizing still to this day. Sickening. Move on Earth. keep history in mind but move on.

I read the reason why they think Japan is the worst country. Is so bias reason is kind sad and pathetic. Japan is no the only country to do that or will be the last. And I can think of many countries who did worst shit during that time than Japan. They want a country to apologize for something that happened outmost a 100 years ago, No to mention is no even the same country of back then. Is kind of ridicules to even paid attention to that. Let people bitch over shit that does't even matter anymore. That was then and this is now,if they want to live in the pass let them,we got better things to do over spilled milk.



Well, the thing is that Germany has admitted to the entire holocaust and they teach their students heavily about what horrible things their country. In some situations they go into such graphic detail that it's probably too much for other countries to teach legally. Unlike Japan where the skim around all their acts like the rape of Nanking or unit 731. They only focus on the situations where they can be seen as the victim. Even last year they attempted to get the movie Unbroken banned from being shown in theaters due to it being "racist". Where in Germany they show Schindler's List in schools. As for the nuke, it was used to stop the invasion of the mainland. In the long run it was sacrifice one, to save the dozen. Yes, it was a terrible thing that I hope is never used ever again, but without it it could have been like Germany when the country was attacked all the way into Berlin. I remember seeing a documentary on how children were taught to fight and kill in elementary school. So would you say it would have been any better to have solders have to fight women and children? Yes all countries have crimes and there isn't any reason to hide that, but the circumstances are different then Japan's situation. But don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to support the reason for people not liking Japan. I don't have any problems with Japan, I have Japanese friends and family for crying out loud. I think the country's amazing and I would love to go one day. I'm just trying to inform you.

This just goes to show how idiotic much of society is, especially on the Internet. A peaceful and productive nation is considered worse than one that threatens to nuke other countries?

I don't even know how South Korea is higher than North Korea on this list.

Anime is popular all over the world - even in China and South Korea, and all of the other places Japan invaded or threatened. Right, Austrailia?

Japan and South Korea are my favorite countries, whoever said that they are the worst need to...stfu.

Let's just say that old grudges die hard. Japan did it's fair share of brutality during war time. The west only got a small taste of it compared to what the South Koreans and the Chinese saw. So while we have no reason to hate either of them, they have plenty of reason to hate each other. They also do it very very vocally. A Chinese or Korean person is more likely to experience racism in Japan than a white or black person is.

What, this is bogus. Japan is not the most hated in the world, the United States is. Haven't you been watching the news as Obama has been going around the world apologizing to the World to get them to like us.
Americans are the most despised people on the planet.
Japan has cute little people that are nothing more than fuzzballs of cuteness, and make all these Anime's so Americans can watch them in their bedrooms, and closets, and feel loved.
God, can you imagine if we didn't have Japan, and Anime, that we might have to actually fight everyone in the world again, and bring about world peace.
But with Anime, we don't have to do that. We can stay at home, and let the rest of the world deal with ISIS, as we watch our favorites, and comment on, up-and-coming Spring Anime.
(sigh) Japan, you have it pretty good! Americans, and their Guilt is weighing down our population, as if Global warming wasn't enough to make us feel guilty. We are guilty of delicious fast food (BAD), Fast cars with V-8's (BAD) and until Anime came along, we drowned our sorrows at the Disney theme parks (BAD, BAD, BAD).
Oh well, maybe if we watch enough Anime the world will forget us, and we can flower again as a National Power of Goodness...
