Okay so, to clarify: SNK's original author is a neo-Imperialist who idolizes pre-WW2 Japan. The character of Dot Pixis is based on an Imperial general who organized the slaughter of at least tens but more likely hundreds of thousands of Koreans. The titans are used as a stand-in for America, which is supposedly keeping Japan hemmed in from the greatness it deserves. The majority of the characters being German is because the author also idolizes Nazi Germany.
