I'm not sure what to think about it... Is it even legal? Heroines are cute though...

Why wouldn't it be legal? There was a comedy movie about Hitler waking up in today's world a couple of years back and it even went to cinemas all around the world.

This is actually a pretty hilarious setup if you ask me. Lots and lots of parody potential.

It's probably more illegal to make a parody about Mao Zedong or Joseph Stalin, never even mind what'd happen if one were to just depict a certain prophet~

You can run but you can not hide.

At least My Little Dictator has some effort behind it beyond just trying to be offensive.

Alicesoft made a empire-building game portraying fascism as a variant of idol culture. It parodies several figures in World War 2, including Adolf Hitler.Last modified on 2019-03-24 at 15:25

#6 At least Alicesoft made it perfectly clear that the overseas market wasn't the game's target audience by banning all foreign access to their website after announcing Daiteikoku.

You're talking about Maho-tan, right?

We're World War II experts so it's going to be a pretty heavy parody, not just a meme machine (though concept wise it basically is that by default).

It's not illegal to make a parody about Stalin in Russia, thus likely nowhere. You can face censorship/ban like it happened to this movie, but that's it, also the censorship is in the grey zone of law itself, so the producer company could theoretically combat the ban in court if it cared enough.

As for Hitler, it actually can be illegal, even criminal, depending on content and context. For example swastika depiction (& various other nazi memorabilia) in entertainment works like this is illegal in a lot of countries. They must be very careful and avoid certain themes if they want to avoid potential troubles with the law in case of unwanted attention beyond their target audiences.
