Okay, even if the war itself is such a problem to be shown "correctly" in the anime, what about the postwar era? Could one advice me to watch sth good about 893 activities? Something shiny, animated...

I'll be grateful for any complicated versions given here - why at least one qualitative commercial TV is not created yet? Not like Zipang. Not like the Grave of fireflies.
So you're wondering why Japan hasn't made much about a war that they started, and lost... decisively... and the ensuing occupation by US troops?

As for recommendations, there's a forum for that, where I'm sure this thread will be relocated. Try the cockpit. It's an OVA with a story of a Japanese kamikaze attack on a US carrier.
