So, I'm sure everyone knows what happened in World War II (or so I hope). Three countries sought to pretty much take over the world with a single superior race, but were stopped by the Allies.
About a half a year ago, I was talking to ThisMechaJunkie (AKA: Kora) on some sort of chatroom (I think it was Facebook, I don't remember) about SD Gundam Force. If you don't know what SDGF is, it is basically a mecha anime using cell-shaded 3 dimensinal models. In the series itself are two sides: The Gundam Force and The Dark Axis. Both consist of allies from the three main dimensions mentioned in the series; that being Neotopia, Lacroa, and Ark.
This is when I had noticed something. With the Axis Powers, two of the countries - that being Germany and Japan - were extremely powerful. Germany had an amazingly strong military force and had hundreds if not thousands of people at disposal, no matter the age of the individual. Japan would never surrender, until the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as their people followed a strict code of honor and devotion to the Emperor.
It may just be me, but I can't help but ignore the fact that the divisions of the Dark Axis under Commander Sazabi and Kibaomaru are highly similar to that of Germany and Japan during this time. Think about it - the weapons used by the Zako Soldiers, Dom, Zapper, and Grappler were very heavy duty to say the least, not to mention how it has been stated that they've taken over numberous worlds just as Germany had taken over all of Europe besides England. Sazabi's design even looks similar to that of a high-ranked German military officer.
I don't think I have to say much of Ark, the connection is much more visible between Japan and Ark than for Germany and Sazabi's troops. But what does that leave for Lacroa under Deed and Tallgeese? Simple, that means they are similar Italy. Not only was it much easier (in my opinion, from what I have seen) to defeat them, the style and culture seems to also reflect that of Europe during medival times. That leaves Neotopia to stop the Dark Axis as America had.
But perhaps I'm just over-analyzing my favorite childhood anime. Please, this is merely my theory. If you don't agree, please do not flame. If you must tell me something I missed, gladly tell me, but not in a way that is rude or would offend others or myself.
