If this game were truly anti-American, it would be ''far'' more blatant that the enemies are American ships. They'd probably speak English and be red, white, and blue or be hilarious American caricatures.

I don't think it's explicitly Anti-American, but I do think it's uncanny they only use German and Japanese ships. Japanese ships alone I could see but when they start using foreign ships and only exclusively German ones...that's two axis nations mind you, and none from the US, none from Britain, none from France (Imagine the French "Terrible" meeting Shimakaze lol), I can't help but think they might be...favouring them for a reason. You do know that Japan tries to depict themselves in lighter manner in respect to world war 2....I almost want to say this is borderline indirect glorification or at the least romantification of the Japanese empire and maybe axis in general....I wouldn't be so bold to directly state this, but I still can't help but find the circumstances uncanny..

And "revisionist history?" Have you cleared 2-4? If so, you won the Battle of the Philippine Sea. With Japanese ships. Despite the real battle being a crushing American victory. You dirty revisionist you.

But in all seriousness, the battles in-game/the anime are clearly thematically based on actual events, but take place somewhere around the present day.

If this game were truly anti-American, it would be far more blatant that the enemies are American ships. They'd probably speak English and be red, white, and blue or be hilarious American caricatures.
