If this show was meant to instigate a resurgence in Japanese nationalism, I'd say it failed utterly.

Many times Japan said they are sorry but they never could face their own history.

The later generations that did not live immediately post surrender probably thought of war as a kid's fight. They punch each other and call a ceasefire and shake hands.

They never could form around their minds their forefathers actions pissed a lot of people off with acts of barbarity that unconditional surrender and defanging their nation was the most humane thing to do for them.

Douglas MacArthur was forgiving of Japan even after what was done to his men and those under his protection.

Again the later generation misunderstands. You forgive but you never forget.

Hence Gundam Age's Understanding Ending is forced without consequences.
