Don't get worn, I like Japan, and I have German ancestry, so it's not like I hate them all for these mistakes of their pasts. It would just be nice if they were more upfront about it.
Who? I'm assuming you mean the Japanese. In Germany there kinda is the problem of being a little too "upfront" about it, e.g. denying holocaust is a crime, and this comic would also be a problem to publish because it depicts a swastika.
The "post-war generation", that is the children of the "nazis" who hadn't experienced these things themselves, were very concerned about how their "parents" tried to kinda sweep the whole thing under the rug, and a lot of discussion happened back then. At this point, germans are hyper-aware of anything that even smells of National Socialism, which incidentally is why there is very low level of popular support for the Middle Eastern wars.
