Abstract—The Japanese animation, which has developed over the past 100 years, has achieved world-renowned achievements due to its unique narrative way and fine point of view, and has great influence in China. But some Japanese animations have hidden militarism thoughts, and some even with strong rhetoric. They deeply packaged themselves and infect their audiences in a subtle way. We must draw high attention and vigilance. What are the characteristics of militaristic thoughts in Japanese animation? What is the form of its expression? What is the cause behind it? What impact has it produced in China? This article will make a corresponding analysis and research to these questions. 
Index Terms—Japanese animation, Militarism thoughts, Vigilance
