Fukuchan. Fukuchan was created by the Japanese author Yokoyama Ryuichi and appeared in the comic strips “Edokko Kenchan” and “Fukuchan” (1936-1971) and three animated movies from 1942 to 1944.

Fukuchan is a Japanese gradeschooler whose life and adventures are quite ordinary and like other children’s...except during World War Two, when (in the movie Fukuchan no Kishu, 1942) he becomes a pilot, attacking the nameless Caucasian enemy from the air, and when (in the movie Fukuchan no Sensuikan, 1944) he becomes a submariner, devastating enemy shipping.
