** The English translation of Yumi Matsutoya's "Hikoki Gumo" has become harsher in hindsight when you compare it to Miyazaki's friend and frequent collaborator Creator/IsaoTakahata's death from lung cancer in April 2018. The same goes for Naoko Satomi frequently coughing up blood due to tuberculosis in the film -- coughing up blood is also a symptom of lung cancer.

** As the animated Walpurgisnacht witch attack, a massively destructive event in a big Japanese city, was about to air, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami]] happened. The episodes were delayed for more than a month, because the harsh similarities were obvious. However, they were most likely animated before the event (and most certainly scripted before the event). The Internet, of course, exploded with the comparison.

* In ''FullmetalAlchemist'', there is a war between the military state of Armestis and the ethnic tribe of Ishvalans. What makes this quite disturbing among Western readers and viewers is that Ishvalan share many similarities to Islam and the Arabs on a superficial level- The Ishvalans follow a monotheistic religion that forbids occult and sorcery as well as having very strict rules. In addition Ishvalan culture shows to be incredibly insular and tribalistic and has a tendency to engage in revenge violence and the Ishvalans are portrayed as brown skinned and living in a desert region. The Armestis are shown as a modernized state resembling Europe with the technology as advanced as radios and automobiles and having quite a lot of freedom. In addition the populace looks very Caucasian with a fair diverse amount of brunettes, blonde blue eyed peoples, redheads, and other features associated with real life whites. So the war brings to many Western readers analogues to the current war on terror in UsefulNotes/TheMiddleEast as well as the recent Iraqi and Afghani wars and thus even made some readers bring accusation a genocide will soon be committed in the West. As the war gets more brutal, reading or watching FMA to anyone unfamiliar with Mid-Eastern culture or the mangaka's comments on the worldbuilding would be quite uncomfortable.
