Though they came to power on the basis of rather progressive and tolerant policies - having learned from [[UsefulNotes/RedOctober The Russian Civil War]] to avoid antagonising anyone to the point that they would take up arms against them while their support might still sway the outcome of the war - the Communists' had always viewed Shanghai as a capitalist cesspool of decadence. Post-war, they waited until they had built up a loyal base in the countryside (by organising lynch-mob killings of all landlords and giving their land to the poor) and the country had returned to a 1937-level of economic activity before they packed off Shanghai's entire prostitute, banker, trade-unionist, liberal, and socialist ([[SeriousBusiness beause only Marxist-Leninist Communist was ideologically acceptable]]) populations and sent them to re-education camps. Shanghai's past as a hotbed of free thought and inter-national contact was forgotten and even actively destroyed during the Maoist era that followed, particularly the CulturalRevolution.

* The first few episodes of ''SenkoNoNightRaid'' are set in 1931 Shanghai, and present it as what it really was: on the one hand a flourishing cosmopolitan city and on the other hand a crime-ridden city beset with political intrigues from local government agents, criminal {{Triad}}s and foreign agents.

* ''FlowersOfShanghai'' is about [[HighClassCallGirl high-class prostitutes]] in Shanghai in the late 19th century. * Contrary to what their titles imply, neither ''ShanghaiNoon'' nor ''ShanghaiKnights'' have anything to do with Shanghai (the scenes set in China take place in Beijing). They were chosen for the sake of the pun.
