Year Hare Affair Season 5
Year Hare Affair (Chinese: 那年那兔那些事/那年那兔那些事儿 literally: The story of that rabbit happened at that year) is a Chinese webcomic by Lin Chao (Chinese: 林超). The comic uses animals as an allegory of nations and sovereign states to represent political and historical military events. It mostly provides readers a novel view of the development of the modern Peoples Republic of China completely different from the official version from the government of the People’s Republic of China. Instead of describing the People’s Republic of China always as a victim of conspiracy, military threatening, economic coercion and other malice of the Western World, this webcomic tries to make the readers believe that the Peoples Republic of China has always been one of the most resourceful and wise governments ever since its creation, and has always been prevailing over foreign entities. This is the first series of manhua which integrated the Japanese anime culture and the political propaganda in China.
