in reality no one care about something half a century ago. Don't bring that into the topic. Heck, Japan was a part of china 2000-2500 years ago.
Wrong again, Feifong.
Japan first appeared in written records in AD 57 (during the Yayoi period) with the following mention in China's Book of the Later Han:"Across the ocean from Lelang are the people of Wa. Formed from more than one hundred tribes, they come and pay tribute frequently." Before that was the Jōmon period, which lasted from roughly 14K BC to 500 BC. By 200 BC Japan was flourishing, and by around 600 AD Japan was one of the strongest contenders for power in the area.
A letter brought to the Emperor of China by an emissary from Japan in 607 stated that the "Emperor of the Land where the Sun rises (Japan) sends a letter to the Emperor of the land where Sun sets (China)"
That letter pretty much meant Japan considered itself equal to, if not greater than, China. By 838, China had completely lost all influence in Japan.
Almost forgot, the Hiroshima incident occurred on August 6th of 1945, while Nagasaki's occurred on the 9th. That means there are adults alive to this day who had their parents, friends, and siblings killed by Americans and other countries under the Allied Forces category in WW2. If a soldier killed my dad, I would hate the country whose name he did his actions in. T.L.D.R version:
Japan was never part of China. At best, they sent tributes for a short period of time.
I find it hilarious that people think the majority of players for a game made in Japan should be anything other than Japanese. It's even funnier when those same people try to call the Japanese "conceited" or "close-minded" for being exactly the same as the rest of the world when it comes to foreigners.
