As a cartoonist, Kato is said to have "exhibited a high degree of ideological flexibility", in that he began his career as a leftist, became a fascist/imperialist during the 1930s, and reverted to socialism during the American occupation. It should be remembered, however, that many Japanese displayed such protean characteristics, in response to the vicissitudes of life in the 20th century.
The cartoons, as reproduced here, are from photographs I took in 1966. Hence the poor quality, for which I apologize.
Three views of the British in India
After the Japanese conquered Burma in 1942, they hoped the Indian demand for independence, represented in the first cartoon by a volcano, would prove impossible for the British to suppress. In the second cartoon, the Indian elephant throws the puny British imperialist out; while in the third cartoon, the same imperialist, restored to his paunchy proportions, murderously defends the jail in which he has incarcerated the Indian leaders.
