If you see The Old Glory National Flag at half-staff today, you will know why.

Of course this marks the first victory of the WWII the Nihau Incident. This was by one account over when the pilot shot a local. In his words ,"The fhird time he shot mr I got really angry."

So many lost their lives because of this event. My grandfather fought in the pacific and even signed up when he was still too young.

Quite.

Say something conservative or something about foreign news and you get 2 pages of trolls jumping in.

Say something about an event that changed world history and setup a 45 year long cold war changing the worlds political landscape, crickets.

Some things don't need to be discussed. You don't have to talk about how awful something was on an online forum to remember it.

Also, in my case at least, it just feels awkward to be talking about Pearl Harbor on an ANIME forum. Not that I have much to discuss about it in the first place.

I don't know what kind of turn out for this on an anime forum for something that happen 75 years ago you wee expecting . Since the memory span of your average anime fan is one season long

Case in point Yuri on ice being anime of the year last year
