    I don't know what the latest trend is, but what will always sell is:

    - Hentai
    - Nazism / white nationalism
    - Furries

    or a combination of these

    I'd think real far right supporters shun direct nationalism and encode their views within seemingly innocuous stances, that is, proponency of legislation ultimately favoring white population. Ergo, I doubt frank Nazism is trending.

    Maybe go with characters from popular seasonal anime: Winter 2019 - Anime - MyAnimeList.net. Also take a look at what themes are trending among best selling anime gear on big sites such as Amazon.

    Those are not far right supporters you're talking about, those are generic right wing dudes, whom the left loves portreying as nazis, wheres they are not.

    Real national socialists do not shun national socialism and they generally love anime.

    What, generic right wing dudes exercise race-motivated politics?

    Besides, I was describing cryptofascism which definitely is far right. My point was that you should remove "Nazism / white nationalism" from your list as they're definitely not trending, and possibly replace it with cryptofascism.

    How do you translate cryptofascism in anime?

    Incorporate dog whistles such as Pepe the Frog, themes of cuckoldry, Holy Crusader and Moon Man.

    I don't recall seeing Pepe, Moon Man or cuckoldry in amine ever, though I have seen Waffen-SS vampires eating people in London.

    If I was to make keychains, I'd make Waffen-SS vampire cannibals over Moon Man any day.

    Play less Angry Goy, Blue Saint.

    Obviously there's no anime with far right statements in canonical product, lol. But we're talking about making keychains, where one's free to incorporate whatever themes they wish. And you're suggesting blatant far right themes to be trending, which is simply not true.

    If by "How do you translate cryptofascism in anime?" you meant "Where have you seen cryptofacism in anime?", I'm sorry to have misunderstood your question. I thought you were inquiring ways to entertain such views within anime.

    Nah, I was simply suggesting to make keychains with nazi anime waifus, as they would sell - answering the OP's question.

    Explicit far-right sentiments stand as long as they are expressed in anime and they are indeed popular.

    Doesn't mean they're popular when you can find images for nazi anime characters. Now, perhaps one shouldn't claim they're trending...

    Sorry, I don't have statistics coined by McKinsey and the United States intelligence services to prove a widely understood point to some quasi-intellectual on a Warcraft III modding forum.

    Do some fucking googling, man.

    I mean even the man who fucking coined the term "alt-right", Richard Spencer acknowledges his followers' anime fandom:



    My point is, this is a segment you can target with anime merch.

    Russian sympathizer though :p

    So, you should not be able to find any to increase popularity?
