Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

You know that full-size Gundam statue -- well apparently there's a project underway to get a full-size walking Gundam in time for the 40th anniversary.

Almost every man in my country has their eyes on her, although she's through with the industry she once set on fire.

^ Well, it fits.

Episodes where absolutely nothing happens, except staring at each other while screaming? Sounds totally like Ford owners' regularly occurring ordeals... :devil:

The lyrics are even more insane than the video would hint at, believe it or not.

The person who did the rough translation also noted that surprisingly the lyrics made no mention of Jews, just some nonsensical lyrics about how Communism is scary and Democracy doesn't work but NationalSocialism is rational or something like that.

What's the point in getting angry man? It's not implying the Holocaust didn't happen or that Hitler was cool, and this isn't even some official endorsement made by Abe or something... just some silly vocaloid made by who knows for who knows what (publicity) reason.

It's not unprecedented for Nazis to be featured prominently in Japanese entertainment. For example, this PS2 game:

http://www.amazon.com/Daisan-Teikoku-Ko ... on+2+games

The title translates (via Google Translate) as: "Third Reich studio machine 2: The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich 2". I've found exactly zero information on this game beyond the fact that it exists, but it seems to be a WWII game where you actually play as the Nazis.
Final Fantasy VII is being remade, all's right with the world.

"Surprise is an insubstantial blade, a sword worthless in war. It breaks when troops rally, it snaps when commanders hold the line, but fear never fades. So let the enemy know we come, let their fears defeat them as everything falls dark, as the worlds sun sets, as the city is wreathed in its final night. Let ten thousand howls promise ten thousand claws. The Night Lords are coming, and no soul that stands against us shall see another dawn"
