* ''Manga/TeamMedicalDragon'' was written by Akira Nagai, a practicing doctor -- and the manga basically centers around a maverick (but exceedingly skilled) cardiac surgeon and his team fighting against bureaucracy and corruption in the Japanese health services. It's particularly jarring when you realize that all the protagonists are incredibly good-looking compared to most of the antagonists, who are practically caricatures.

His Taxation is Theft beef even showed up in editorials run in ''Southern Knights'' at least once, as well.

*** Kojima also really hates people drafting children into war. Additionally, his dislike of {{PMC}}s is also quite evident. In general, he hates people profiting off of death. Also, a more subitle one, the idea of VR Troopers being an idiotic idea is likely a TakeThat at the idea of video games making people hardend killers.
