I have a friend looking at this flag on a site to purchase, and has asked me if I think this is real or not. To me, I'm thinking that this friend may not be bidding on what he is hoping is real, even if it claims to be. I've had more experience with US GI WW2 stuff than others, and I found this site and am hoping to find some more specifics out about how to spot real or fake and the differences in them. Thanks.

That's a definite fake. The red circle is too large. The kanji are written by someone who actually doesn't know it, so it doesn't make sense at all. A very poorly made fake.
