Is there any reason why Japan doesn't produce more anime featuring Planes?

It's like we get one once all 3 years, is it because they were absolutely destroyed in aerial combat in WW2?
>>
Its because their version of scifi future involves Mechas rather than old fashioned planes.

Just like Westerner produce so little Mechas cartoons because Westerners are afraid of Japanese superiority.
>>
They don't buy plane models.
>>
>>100034626
Well, we do get Ace Combat...

Pick one.

not enough japanese like cute jet girls
>>
Jeez, the latest Miyazaki is about planes, as was Porco Rosso. Strike Witches was mecha musume planes, Yukikaze was planes, Sky Crawlers was planes, Last Exile was planes, Allison & Lillia was planes, LotGH had shitloads of (space) plane dogfights, Place Promised was about a plane, 801 TTS Airbats, etc. etc. Shall I go on?

>>100034997
Considering you're pulling references from apparently the last 20 years and getting a pretty short list, yes.

You're not even going to mention we have this airing currently?
>>
>>100035220
Aw fuck yes Fand 2. Stability and pilot safety is for gaylords, I'd rather pull kulbits and 9+G maneuvers.
>>
Japan doesnt have a military complex like America. So tanks/airplanes/warship animes are few and far.
>>
Mechs are better than planes anyway.
>>
Does America love planes to begin with? I think I haven't seen any decent plane movie since Top Gun.

You serious?

I don't know how the fuck they manage to have a conversation with 2 giant rotors going beside them and open cockpits.
>>
>>100035346
Sure Yushiro, we all know how you shat on those F-22s with an obsolete Raiden. And how they didn't fuck up the attack run at all. Or how they were well equipped for dealing with ground targets.
>>
>>100035220
That plane reminds me of thew Neucom Delphinus 103
>>
>>100034743
>Ace Combat
Those were good times on my PS2. I wish something equally good would exist for PC...
>>
Is yukikaze good? I think I might've tried it and dropped. But I'm not sure if that was another plane anime or not...
>>
>>100035422
Emulated Ace Combat. Modded IL2 1946. Modded (brace for it) HAWX. LOMAC. Need I go on?

>>100035439
>dropping yukikaze

Worth a watch. It can be hard to understand parts of it without having read the novels but it would be worth it for the dogfights alone even if everything was muted and without story.
>>
>>100035483
>Need I go on?

yes.
>>
Oh it's an OVA? That's not what I dropped then. Was there another series with something Kaze that was set at an airbase?

American reasoning at it's finest.
>>
>>100035530
Are you fucking implying modded IL-2 46 alone isn't enough?
>>
>>100035574
My own safety doesn't concern me and I'm pretty sure the Fand 2 can tolerate all kinds of bullshit the Mave can pull and even more.
>>
>>100035577
It's even more funny if you know that the highest scoring PTO fighter ace is japanese.
>>
>>100035314

>Japan doesnt have a military complex

hahahaHAHAHAHA
>>
>>100035734
I think the anon meant military-industrial complex having strong influence on government, the size of the budget ( .jp has supply part of the budget for Americans stationed here in various forms) and Japanese army being all kinds of limited for defense by treaties.
>>
>>100035689
And died in an airliner.

I don't know about his sister, but in Kal-El's cockpit there is a manual speaker thing that presumably feeds into the rear seat. You can see it on the right here.
>>
>>100035903

It's not. For example, they're not allowed to have any aircraft carriers or a military. So they just call their aircraft carriers "destroyers" and their military "self-defence forces" .

They can have military. It's purpose just has to be defense.
They can't 'meddle' abroad like USA.

Hell of a way to rise morale, too bad it never happened in the books.

That whole fucking episode!
The looks on the faces of the carrier crew when Yukikaze 'fell' were priceless.

To what end?

>>
>>100035483
HAWX is better than that pile of shit called Assault Horizon.

At least OFF mode was kind of cool, and HAWX 2 had a fucking two-seat Su-30MKI Flanker. I doubt any other game will feature that plane. HAWX also had a nice selection of obscure as hell planes (A-12 for example).
>>
>>100036875
It's a ramjet engine IIRC.
>>
>>100036875
It's alien-fighting-super-plane-run-by-A.I. I don't have to explain shit.
It can also turn backwards while full speed and outrun alien nuke explosions.

Doesn't take much to be better than ASSault Horizon.
>>
>>100036959
Were it a ramjet it would not be running.
You have to get them up to speed before switching them on.
>>100036961
It won't be fighting aliens if it blows its engines.

Best plane
>>
>>100037204
My brother of good taste.

Because they already produced the best airplane anime already.

Is the series as good as the OVA animation wise??
>>
>>100037862
Series has CGI planes, shitty electro orchestral OST and it's a retelling of the story from the OVAs.
So, no, it's not as good as the OVAs.
>>
>>100037916
Hey, the music was good, and in a certain sense it was more similar to the manga.
