So lets say Operation Downfall happens and Japan is split into North and South. Would Japanese culture as we know it still exist? Would we get anime as a mass pop culture boom? Would Japanese electronics such as Sony, Panasonic, Tobisha, ect still dominate? How would video game culture look like since many video game companies such as Sony, Nintendo, Square Enix, ect are based in Japan? Would J-pop as we know it exist? How about the Japanese automotive industry?
