@otakubouzu I'm well aware of that. But your initial statement didn't give that impression, so I made a pointed guess.

I disagree with your characterization of Trump as "incompetent" and "racist" seeing as how he's done more for the American economy than the last three presidents combined. Especially the fact that racial minority unemployment, especially blacks, is the lowest it's been in decades. "Loathsome" is irrelevant to me because most people make that judgement based on his personality; I have worked with worse under harder conditions, so I mostly look on such claims with a "suck it up and get to work" attitude.

As for Greta, she's just the latest in a very long line of sacrificial goats the lefties are using to try and force policy changes without debate or accountability. If you're interested in specifics and a breakdown that is roughly equivalent to my opinion,

I'm not from the US either, but I have family there and I keep a weather eye on their surroundings.

My Initial statement about media mostly refer that you will have a Fox News for a CNN (conservative vs liberal). And now i recall there are some right-leaning media too in Japan, so that in GATE we only see liberals hippie type media crew and none of right-leaning media have been shown so far (Kuribayashi sis' looked neutral at very least, but she didn't featured too often) is kinda eyebrow rising for me.

Credit for Trump for USA economy, but i still wouldn't regard him as 'competent'. Guy have tried a lot side business and many are folded. And i still won't regard him as bastion of tolerance any time.

@otakubouzu Trump is still a multi-millionaire, made himself one of the biggest reality TV stars of the 20th century, and ended up with more net worth than he started with. Even if his competence extends no further than knowing when to step back and let other people do the work, that's a lot more than can be said for the majority of politicians I can think of. Besides, over half of all start-up ventures fail within the first year; unless you have a bunch of data I don't, Trump is neither more nor less successful than the average. He just has more resources to work with, and more data points under his expansive waistline than the vast majority of would-be business folk.

As for right vs left media, my experience is that Western Democracy-style governments are generally more favorable to left-wing than right-wing news. It strikes me as entirely in-character that a bureaucrat would pull strings to try and make the JSDF look bad so (s)he could have an excuse to redirect funds to some personal project or other. Or any other organization, if this manga were themed differently.

page 29 : the girl kuribayashi is falling in love and blushing ?

page 31 : All Campus Joint Struggle Committee : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Asia_Anti-Japan_Armed_Front .

the press guy is too annoying to live . if i were the JSDF soldiers , i would just throw the press guy to the mouths of the black wolf-s because he wanted to film the wolf-s so badly , lol , then i would tell everyone that he had an "accident" .

the press guy reminds me of this film : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightcrawler_(film) . " our channel 's audience love the bloodiest , grossest corpses . "

@ninjadork,

You are incorrect on all of your assumptions about me, but thanks for trying.

I just wanted to watch hapless protagonist-kun get on more adventures with his harem.
