The costs on this chart obviously aren’t adjusted for inflation.  Interesting though nevertheless.

Also known in Japan as “Cat Shit One”, this animated series is scheduled for release in early 2010 … It looks pretty awesome

The series follows three American soldiers (Rabbits) in the Vietnam War named Bota, Perky and Rats. All three are in the recon team called Cat Shit One. Each mission shows the daily activities of the reconnaissance group in Vietnam

The American Rabbits in this are a wordplay on the Japanese word “Usagi”, which also means Rabbit. Another way to look at it is the word as an acronym – U.S.A. G.I.

Pretty neat!

Other animals in this series according to their nationality are:

  • American – Rabbit
  • Vietnamese – Cat
  • French – Pig
  • Chinese – Panda
  • Japanese – Monkey and Gorilla
  • Russian – Bear
  • Korean – Dog
  • British – Rat
  • Australian – Kangaroo
  • German – Fox
  • Middle Eastern – Camel, Goat and Sheep
  • Argentines – Cow
