Any good military anime /a/? I've seen a good deal of decent anime, but I'm pretty new to the scene still. Looking for something with a good plot that's military themed. Thx.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes
in b4 gundams
Those Who Hunt Elves
FGICL FUCK YOU
Last Exile has a military theme, albeit an industrial revolution one. Anything Gundam has a bunch of military themes, and Full Metal Panic too. Fullmetal Alchemist would also be a good one.
Looks like some fail there cap'n..
about a girl, she is a military weapon it is a sad anime.
in after gundams
the cockpit and fmp
With Mechas: Gundam/Macross/Full Metal Panic/Code Geass if you are in the mood
Without: Last Exile/FMA(both steampunk)/Pumpkin scisors has good moments, but don't expect too much
Bakumetsu Kikansetsu has big storytelling flaws if you ask me, yet it is still a really impressive depiction of the japanese civil war and the fall of Edo.
I would suggest you watch a few episode and drop what you don't like (yeah, obvious is obvious, but I fail to find a really great anime about army... apologies).
OP here, I've seen Last Exile and FMA, and really enjoyed both. Really enjoyed Ghost in the Shell and Hellsing too. But as far as really notable military anime, that's the most I've seen. Already saw some gundam, and it doesn't impress me alot, although I liked G-Gundam.
You've really got to sort through the muck when it comes to Gundam, it has a win to fail spectrum wider than GONZO's.
The original series is always a safe bet.
Red Eyes is the most military manga you´ll ever read.
