|The World Sinks Except Japan|
POSTED BY JASON FETTERS, November 4, 2012 Share
A popular news show has reports of foreign crime on the rise because there are no jobs for all non-Japanese. Hollywood stars find work until foreigners are so hated that even once popular entertainers cannot find work.
Foreigner crime has risen so drastically that Japanís only solution is the GAT or Gaijin Attack Team. Forced to find food however they can, a group of Americans steal koi from a pond and grill it as the GAT rushes in and beats everyone down.
The only foreigners who are safe are those married to a Japanese spouse and carry an ID card stating this.
Foreigners are so hated they become extras on a mock Ultraman show that shows a giant Godzilla type monster stepping on them.
The Japanese Prime Minister does very little to help solve problems because he is more interested in helping his GAT arrest and deport people.
The World Sinks Except Japan is a humorous satire on what life would be like if there was only one country that refugees could live in. Resources are quickly used up, vegetable and fruit prices escalate so only the very rich can afford to eat.
It is best to take The World Sinks Except Japan not too seriously because a lot of the jokes exaggerate American and Japanese relations and go over the top with it. The special effects are great but the story is weak. It is more of a series of events with multiple characters to keep track of. There is no real plot besides Japanís plight with an increased foreign population. Still, it has some good moments and is worth a look.
