How can you people not see the truth when it's right in front of you?

Japan's been testing giant mechanical humanoid suits as weapons of war for decades! Serious conceptual planning (placement of units, potential challenges posed by various sorts of terrain, weapons systems, mental and physical requirements for effective piloting, etc.) began in the late 1970s, when the Japanese government turned to its general public (particularly its youth) for a sounding board by broadcasting videos of hypothetical suits and pilots on nationally syndicated television channels. These conceptual broadcasts have never stopped, and have spread like wildfire under the guise of additional "franchises" the public constantly discusses and improves upon, but never truly understands. Once they had a solid concept to work with they began field testing in the 1980s and 90's, broadcasting their successful runs in the form of super sentai series as propaganda indicating their movement toward functional units and demonstrating their pilots' combat prowess. Midway the Americans got wise, took the super sentai material the Japanese were putting out, and developed their own programme to accomplish similar goals.

This has all culminated in the US v. Japan robot fight. They're testing their strength against one another to gauge how far along each country is. Now, I know what you're thinking, and it's a perfectly logical question: "But Oni, why would the Japanese want to build giant mechanical humanoid battle suits?" It's obvious, really: Japan wants to be better prepared for Godzilla attacks. Why does the US want giant robots? Because Japan has them. Duh.

It's out there now, Japanese government. They know.

Unfortunately, Mothra has been a secret prisoner of drug cartels ever since it was discovered that the powder coming off of its wings is a potent and efficacious psychomotor stimulant with incredible dependency and tolerance potential. That's why the Japanese have had to resort to machines.

Anger makes me people say and do stupid things. And China is mad at Japan, always has been.

If I'm not mistaken those ill feelings towards one another started with the Rape of Nanjing in the beginning of World War II. An event Japan still refuses to admit happened.

At some point the PRC is going to have to be held to account for its nationalist and militarist ambitions, and will have to lose the benefit of being able to shield its rhetoric against Japanese territorial holdings, military assets, and political figures with events which took place more than seven decades ago under an entirely different government than the one presently operating in Japan. In a similar vein, at some point Japanese conservative nationalists are going to have to accept that no one is buying Fascist Japan's "co-prosperity sphere" nonsense, and therefore their attempts to make Imperial Japan look better than it really was are not only a waste of time, but an insult to peoples' intelligence.

Well, looks like you understand. A lot of my Chinese friends feel the same way about the mainland. It's just not a good place to be, and overcrowding has made people there very rude. The government enforces some very silly laws and doesn't care about national boundaries or international law. The rich Chinese all seem to move out of China and most of them are newly-wealthy so they don't know how to spend money and behave in a way that allows them to remain dignified. They are like teenagers with too much money.

So many of those people are in my city. They can't drive stick but buy a super expensive rare car and recklessly travel the roads. They'll run reds and stop signs, they can't drive (which is just unsafe), and they don't look before doing anything and they assume they have enough money to throw at all their problems so they don't need to behave. They even try to bribe the immigration officers and judges. They spit everywhere, they never tip when eating out, they are very loud in the wrong places (movie theaters, libraries, etc.), take advantage of anything they possibly can to the point of it being ridiculous, and they are extremely wasteful. I would have thought that living in a crowded place like the mainland would have taught them to be conservative and resourceful, but I guess not. The pedestrians (including tourists and lots of pregnant Chinese women who come here just to have a baby) jaywalk constantly and never pay much attention in parking lots or when crossing the street. They will walk slowly and pretend there aren't any cars around. It's very dangerous as well as annoying.

I've dealt with so many of them on my jobs and I honestly can't bring myself to get along with them anymore unless they've adapted to the US culture. The ones who don't try to understand the culture here and try to act their own way don't get any respect from me.

Well, I've danced this dance a time or two. Japanese Empire topics pop up regularly here, this being an otaku/weeaboo/whatever you want to call it site and all. And I say that with no derisive or hateful intent. Went through a "weeaboo" phase myself, I did. Learned a lot from it, it helped make me who I am today. Don't regret it.

This all about the friendship of Japan and the U.S.
The Chinese would love to take over Japan but cant because of us. With that being said Japan has not done them selves any favors with their past war crimes.

They haven't been on really good terms since WW2, but that was years ago and I don't know why they don't get along.

This is just one of the many reasons. Also, Japan has never really played well with other countries until relatively recently in history.
Prejudice also still exists within educational institutions of both countries, mainly the fact that they both like to tell their own pretty tailored side of the fence.

Continous straining events on both sides also occurs from time to time, take Senkaku islands or "Diaoyu islands" as the Chinese calls them, as an example. This is just one of the many things that continues to fuel the fire.
Then there's the sad fact that people simply refuse to move on. In spite of Japan having apologized for some of the tragedies troops committed during WWII, they are apologizing in vain because people even go as far as saying the apology never took place to begin with.

Think of it as a kindergarten dispute between two classes, and you pretty much get the picture, even though most japanese/chinese will tell you "how it really is"

Speaking of, do yourself a favor (and anyone else for that matter) and don't bring this up when talking to your Chinese or Japanese friends.
It's the equivalent of having an atheist and a deeply devout religious person clash.
