Israeli Politicians Animation

Battle of the Titans?

Israeli election anime
"State of Israel."
Israeli politics reached a critical point in early 2020 with the battle between Benjamin Netanyahu, Benny Gantz, and Avigdor Liberman. So, some animators decided to look at the situation anime-style. The result was their series of videos of which two are reproduced below, “State of Israel Anime.”

The video was the brainchild of Theo Dolev and Akim Dolinsky, who run their business called Frankendo. The company uses a variation of the famous "Nintendo" logo.

Benjamin Netanyahu, in particular, is a larger-than-life character, and the anime brings out the qualities that the public has become familiar with during his long service as the Prime Minister of Israel.

The illustrations in typical anime over-the-top style are by Ophir Sheriff. Two Japanese voice actors also lend their talents.

Even if you are not too familiar with Israeli politics, this series incorporates an interesting blend of animation styles.
