It might get made anyway if someone sees it as a way to stir patriotism, either American or Japanese. The author is a right-winger, and there is still nationalist sentiment in Japan. Is this video from Japan a cheering section for a fictional army (from a live event for Fate/Zero), or actually from a Japanese nationalist rally? If you didn't know what was going on you might not know the difference.

Also, remember how the Battleship movie had a Japanese character working with the American Naval forces? Someone might want to try that again with a live-action adaptation of this light novel too.

Can't disagree with you on Rory's potential for controversy though.
