Thanks for heads up, OP. Art is pretty damn good and I don't need to read the untranslated novel now. I have a feeling that I've heard a similar story somewhere. I remember reading a review on a movie script about a man teleported to another planet with deadly fauna to activate some machine, but dying and being reborn to be sent again. Only that he remembers his previous attempt and now a bit more experienced. It was called "John 24" or something like that.
Such plot might actually be pretty common.

>I don't need to read the untranslated novel

Nigga, the novel WAS translated.

But yeah, time loops / war plots and such aren't original anymore.
>>
Ah, found it. It was called "Shadow-19". When searching for it, I also found similar script called "The days before". Reviewer even outright mentions how he thought about "all you need is kill" while reading it.

I wonder why this thread is so empty. Only me and OP here.

Is this more JAPAN STRONG nip jerking
>>

Japan can't write anything more or less serious without nationalistic jerking, that's just how their mentality works.

>>101203154
Right on, remember pearl harbor.

>>101203083
Yes. Japanese guy gets the American girl and is the one man who has to save the world now.

Wouldn't have it any other way, considering that any other country does the same. Well, apart from mine, but that's because they can't produce a not-shitty movie to begin with, adding nationalistic themes to it would just be overkill.

The same could be said about the USA. Only they have "x" to save the world in every big hollywood film.

It's funny how patriotism works in different countries.
>"Murrica strong" "FUCK YEAH"
>"Nihon sturongu" "YAMATO DAMASHI"
>"Russia strong, comrage" "Are you a fucking nazi scum?!"

People always say this shit. It's only NIPPON STRONK in extreme cases like Gate. In fiction, you have to expect the country that the author is from (and thus, the country the author knows the best about) as being the focus of the story and having the interest things happening to it.

The particular example you cite isn't even close to this. It's saying that a facility in Japan is the only place to make one particular component for the battle jackets - this is hardly exceptional. It's similar to the way that the UK was the only site for producing Chobham tank armor for many years - they invented it, and other countries (even their allies in the USA) didn't have the expertise.

If something is cutting edge, it's not enough to just have the theoretical blueprints for its construction. There will still be many problems with scaling up theoretical designs to mass scale production. You need people who have the technical expertise - expertise that is likely to be concentrated in the region that produced the invention.

Your a Flip, aren't you? Yeah, our media sucks.

>>101203083
It's not like the Jacket themselves do jack shit aside from keeping the soldiers alive a little longer so that the artillery can strike.
>>
Reading the manga feels like leftovers after reading the novel. They skip way too much stuff. I don't like the designs as well... they made jackets with autocannons into Halo armor with lmgs.
>>
>>101204095

The jacket designs are surprising. They seem closer to western mechs than the usual japanese designs.
>>
So, this being turned into a movie pretty much negates any chance of anime, right?
>>
>>101204432
It doesn't have to be that way. Granted that I really don't care about it having an anime adaptation.
