The unrelenting phenomenon of bombastic shadow lord Donald Trump seems as if it would fit seamlessly into the desolate and hopeless world of mega-popular anime and manga franchise Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人, Shingeki no Kyojin), so one Japanese illustrator took that twisted affinity and spun it into a pretty funny mashup political cartoon.
It comes courtesy of Masaaki Sato, and may have ran in the Chunichi Shinbun in Japan. As David A Hill Jr. tweeted out, the comic is a play on the popular anime's name, reading the same as "Shingeki no Kyojin" phonetically, but essentially translates to "Attack on Liar."
The dark texted narration says "He's built a wall in Mexico, and now has come to destroy the wall in Asia." The two leaders (perhaps Abe and Xi) are saying "If he actually becomes president, we're screwed!" and "What are you talking about? The Asian Titans will protect us," perhaps suggesting that Asia has its own giants lurking.
Whatever you take away from it, you have to admit that the sight of a giant and naked Trump hurdling a wall is as terrifying as anything in the world of Attack on Titan.
