A while back, I noted an Atlantic article I'd read on the Japanese and their penchant for group suicide arranged among strangers online. The article really impressed me; I decided I needed to check out some of the cultural products that the author mentioned (I'd already seen the Suicide Club).

Just a quick question--did the surrender treaty signed on the U.S.S. Missouri stipulate as one of its terms that a certain percentage of Japanese entertainment must be focused on giant robots piloted by humans that battle monsters?

Just asking...
