Make Anime Great Again with The Drumpf Make Anime Great Again with The Drumpf

Anime is the best, but since Cowboy Bebop ended, Japan has failed. In fact, it’s in the worst state it’s ever been since moe took over. Thankfully, there is one man so unencumbered by logic and knowledge, and so unfettered by decorum and morality, that he knows how to fix it.
