By blending fantastical and historical elements, Kaiji Kawaguchi’s Zipang (2000–2009) delivers an interesting and ambivalent vision of Japan’s WW2 history. The manga occupies a somewhat particular place both in the genre of alternate history and in the contemporary debate about Japan’s military, which in recent years has been heating up through new policies about active national security that stand in sharp contrast to the nation’s constitutionally formulated war-renouncing and peaceful aims.
