Kind of, yeah, but otherwise it's still recognized as part of Italy.

I wonder if giving them an IS would be controversial.

Again, if you consider them not wealthy enough (what with small population and NO industrial capacity and all) giving them one would be useless. And that assuming (usually fictiona) knight templars won't popping out protesting.

You sure? Anime seems to have Catholics as some kind of Badass order with a creed in just about every show they're in.

^ Except this one is against order of God.

By badass you mean they're killing vampires and werewolves and witches who is seen as threat to their religion, their position vary from anti-hero to extremist depending on how their enemies portrayed. if they had badass, fanatical high-tech troopers, I don't SEE why they didn't try the same with I.S.

At least, that's what I think. Female Superiority is a no-no in conservative & radical Abraham people.

Aren't Knight templars usually fanatics?

^ not necessarily, but most of the time yes, if they are red shirt especially.

Some instead played the "Bunny Ears Hunter" card (especially if they're main characters). They're competent, yes, but they are incredibly quirky.

Think the societal shift somehow affected Religion?

That's a good idea, highly probably yes.

If we can somehow bring the topic well (which, while sensitive, is extremely interesting) it would be awesome

I've seen some possibly controversial religion depictions in anime recently. Seen Index and Seikon no Qwaser?

Nope, I don't know them (in Index, I only knew some of the characters)

On the other hand, Trinity Blood takes the cake, mainly with the hot and nubile priest/cleric/nuns and all sort of crazy stuff subverting/deconstructing Fictional Catholicism (and I'm not even a Christian).

It has some interesting ideas that maybe could be used.

Religion may follow but should not taking too much spotlight, and it'll be good

I'll watch the video later, bad traffic now.

Idea: If Italy is closely tied to the Vatican, maybe they get asked for advice regarding the IS. Supporting it could show as a "Peace Movement" by showing the weapons can be used for good.

Incidentally, Italy is one of the most powerful I.S. owner (good unit + good pilot), maybe that would make sense.

Imagine a pilot who's pacifistic, kind and religious. Might be a good change.

But the reasoning DOES makes sense. However, indeed the massive, bright "Rival Machine" flag is a turn off...

EDIT: Funny video, extremely controversial theme, awesome.
