Please let me know or move this thread if it is inappropriate. I just wanted to discuss and know what people are thinking about this issue, but I have to be honest that I'll be biased as I am tilted to one side. If there are similar thread I'm very sorry but I couldn't find it with searching DOA ^^; Recently I have noticed that a doll based on a real person Date Masamune is going to be released. I also have noticed that there are people who think it as a only doll, so there wouldn't be an issue on it, or it is very 'cool' to have a doll based from him. And there are people who think this as a serious problem. People who are opposed with this idea of the 'historical based' doll, claims that Date Masamune was a person who had slaughtered many people, which was almost bad as what Nazis did. I do agree with people who think it is inappropriate, as it would be outrageous to release a doll based on Adolf Hitler, it is very wrong to make a doll based on Date. I have realised that there are people who think Date is just an awesome and cool character from a drama or an animation, based on some old-day stories, I think it is ignorant of them, only want to know some cool and interesting facts from the actual history, what they care to know. If the company is so desperate to release a doll out, they could've just release with a different name. Different opinions are welcomed.
