Japanese Government needs more help from anime for its defense policy. Japan Self Defense Force's Tokyo Provincial Cooperation Office has posted visuals for its latest recruitment posters featuring the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Takumi Yanai's fantasy novel GATE: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri (Thus the JSDF Fought There).
The collaboration was realized by the offer from the novel author Yanai who is an ex-Self Defense Force official and has supported the activities of JSDF. The Tokyo Office hopes that theses posters will help to increase young people's interest in Ministry of Defense and Japanese military forces.
The TV anime GATE will premiere in Japan on Tokyo MX at 24:30 on July 3 (JST).
The tagline is "Let's Be The One Who Can Protect Someone."
