So /a/, you're in charge of making the next great historically based anime with the following guideline:
>no Romance of 3 Kingdoms
What is your genre and what is your time period?
The Oda clan is taking over Japan, but there is no Nobunaga. Nobunaga is actually a boogeyman invented by several high-ranking generals so that when they are defeated in battle, they can push the blame on someone else. There is no romance in any of these kingdoms.
China in the times of cultural revolution
main characters are cute middle school girls
genre:Slice of Life, School
>Millions of people in China were violently persecuted during the Cultural Revolution. Those identified as spies, "running dogs", "revisionists", or coming from a suspect class (including those related to former landlords or rich peasants) were subject to beating, imprisonment, rape, torture, sustained and systematic harassment and abuse, seizure of property, denial of medical attention, and erasure of social identity. At least hundreds of thousands of people were murdered, starved, or worked to death. Millions more were forcibly displaced. Young people from the cities were forcibly moved to the countryside, where they were forced to abandon all forms of standard education in place of the propaganda teachings of the Communist Party of China
I feel healed already
Aleister Crowley as the legendary shitposter of WWII.
>He actually made a living off it for awhile. He got hired by British intelligence to infiltrate a German newspaper in America and make them sound retarded. He spent years releasing the most ridiculous shit, like declaring independence for Ireland and comparing the Kaiser to Jesus.
>Also there's this, Crowley loved this.
>I have been over forty years engaged in the administration of the law in one capacity or another. I thought that I knew of every conceivable form of wickedness. I thought that everything which was vicious and bad had been produced at one time or another before me. I have learnt in this case that we can always learn something more if we live long enough. I have never heard such dreadful, horrible, blasphemous and abominable stuff as that which has been produced by the man (Crowley) who describes himself to you as the greatest living poet.
>Justice Swift, in Crowley's libel case.
>Also apparently he did shit like encourage Germany to sink the Lusitania in order to get the U.S. into the war, started a plot to overthrow Spain, and helped keep British dominion over Ireland and India. Declassified documents are a wonderful thing.
It's just the story of Mansa Musa's Hajj. He goes everywhere giving away his gold and being generous. Half way through the perspective shifts to a character from egypt who's life is ruined because of inflation. He seeks to kill the monster from the other side of the great desert but doesn't make the trek across the Sahara.
A harem anime...set in an actual Muslim harem. MC is a eunuch who has to guard all the horny/manipulative bitches while the Sultan is away. Fucking them is haraam and may result in torture and/or death.
The Great Age of Exploration beginning from Prince Henry's movement up to the Spanish occupation of
Flipland.They seamen are all grills ranging from lolis to Christmas cake Onee-sans.
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Drama
He was supposed to be castrated, but the doctor took pity on him and sparred his balls. He is incredibly horny, but needs to pretend to be oblivious to the girls' advances so the sultan doesn't find out he's packing heat.
An historically accurate portrayal of the American Civil war, except all the soldiers are lolis, and the blacks are all brown elves.
>They wear fake beards and mustaches even as the scenes are deadly serious.
they liberate alien jews from the camps not knowing the nazis were rightfully keeping them there to stop them from destroying humanity.
but in secret the nazis have also produced a propulsion system used on the legs.
Then everyone loses their pants.
Wait. Wait! I got it. I got this.
Are you ready for this shit?
It stars a cast of young girls trying to survive Auschwitz. Cute girls doing cute things, suffering, historical drama, ecchi scenes in the camp brothel--this one has it all.
>Ghengis Khan invades China, but his trusted advisor is killed and no one remembers to tell him to not kill all the Chinese.
The Mongolian invasion of Japan would be a joy to watch. It would be Nippon stronk to the max. Didn't more Mongolians die invading Japan than died in the whole duration of the Mongol Empire combined? Satsumas vs Kublai Khan when?
Historical drama - Byzantine Era of Justinian and Belisarius
Historical drama - Genghis Khan
Historical adventure - Byzantine Varangian Guard general Harald Hardrada and his merry men
It turns Monster of the Week into Chink Annihilation of the Week.
The Japanese invasion of Burma would be more interesting than lazy chinks intentionally sabotaging their own weapons.
>Didn't more Mongolians die invading Japan than died in the whole duration of the Mongol Empire combined?
No. And most of the ones who did die were killed when storms wrecked their invasion fleets.
how about a loli Trail of tears anime?
The Japanese/Mongol wars, where the japanese cast keeps training for battle to defeat the big evil guys who statistically are sure to win, only for the entire Mongol fleet to get wiped out by storms before reaching Japanese shores.
It's a light-hearted comedy that parodies/touches upon being a serious war drama/shounen.
Old mentor: "I was going to retire as a soldier, but now that war has come it looks like I can't. Oh well, it can wait until after our enemies are vanquished."
>he fucking retires peacefully with no problems whatsoever because the Mongols can't read clouds
Russian revolution, with sub plot about romance between a boy from the working class and a girl from the nobility.
This is fine too, I want to see all the Knightly Orders, genderbended or no.
It's not like the Japs actually fought for the Mongols for real. They got saved by the wind. And let's be real here, the Mongols during the height of their power could crush any army of the same era.
>implying there were kamikazes at Pearl Harbor
>lewd scientist girl Ben Franklin with lightening powers
Then they got sent to conquer North Africa and brought more water than fuel because it would be hot for the tank crews.
This left many Italian tanks stranded in the arid plains/deserts.
There is only one choice and thats the OPIUM WARS
Mongolian invasion force got their shit wrecked by a storm while sailing to Japan.
It was so bad that the Chinese they subdued decided that this was a sign from the heavens to rebel or some shit.
if good characterisation is a certainty, the Spanish Civil War
if not, then the Greek War of Independence
New Testament. The MC is your typical Gary Stu. He's a huge moralfag and dual wields fish and bread. He has a harem he calls apostles, which he collected by beating them with friendship.
Judas, an angsty, genius assassin, is his best friend. Together, they vowed to start a kakumei that would overthrow the Roman Empire.
>a shit leader
moe conquistadors conquering native savages and adventuring around the new world
While the Cultural Revolution was a clusterfuck, that is severely whitewashing and exaggerating the actual events. Let me guess? Wikipedia? (Important too note that the Chinese Revolutionary period articles are almost entirely maintained exclusively by Taiwanese lol)
If you want cute girl Communists, a good period would be the all female Communist uprising on Hainan Island that overthrew the Nationalists there.
New Testament S2: After Judas' betrayal and MC's supposed death, the apostles go their own ways. That is, of course, until a masked man who claims to be the Son of God declares revolution once again. Is he the MC or an impostor? To be continued...
New Testament Shippuden: Paul takes up the MC's cause and becomes the cult leader of an organization that worships the long-dead masked MC. Paul, however, is amoral, highly intellectual and nihilistic. He wants to be the god of the new world.
A peasant spiritual healer and monk fucks babes while he creates a rapport with the royal family and tries to get the Tsar to stop making shitty military decisions and put an end to the slowly broiling social and political revolution that is slowly but surely coming to a point where one side will destroy the other, but if the Tsar doesn't win the country itself is going to go through the worst time it has ever gone through ending with the death of tens of millions, and future our divine prophet can see.
Spoiler: Rasputin dies, the Tsar loses, Russia is fucked after Lenin leaves.
A murder mystery set during the Chicago's world fair, i.e. as it actually happened. With emphasis on the visuals and maybe a dash of supernatural things.
haha, never thought I'd see someone defending the legacy of the Cultural Revolution...I guess every crackpot dictator has their apologists here.
What do you think about Pol Pot?
guaranteed heart wrenching ending
A alternate history of Europe starting with the Thirty Years War, perhaps tied into the Girls und Panzer universe.
In this universe King Gustav of Sweden is not killed at Lutzen in 1632. He survives but is crippled and has to retire to Sweden as his injuries leave him unable to ride a horse or use a weapon. He largely retires to his estates leaving the administration of government to his trusted minister Axel Ostenterna.
Then in 1636 the Swedish armies in Germany suffer the massive defeat at the Battle of Nordlingen against Spanish troops. Gustav, feeling the whole Protestant/Swedish cause in Europe failing enlists his ten year old tomboy daughter to be his arms and legs.
As such in 1640 Princess Christina becomes the first woman in modern Europe to actually command a major army when still barely in her teens. As a body guard her father raises a troop of young women, first from across Scandinavia and then from across Protestant Europe, who accompany her as armored cavalry. Her success at the head of the Swedish arms results in copycat units of female cavalry across all the non-Calvinist parts of Europe. And thus bringing into the European world the limited acceptance of woman practicing mounted combat which ultimately leads to seshado/panzerfahren in the GuP universe.
anon please, hannibal was vastly outclassed by Scipio
he even admitted it later on when he was working for some king in Asia Minor
Book of the New Sun.
It would fit nicely into an episiodic format.
Something SnW-esque based on the Western front in WW1
>qt girls trying to get by in the suffering that is trench warfare
My nigga. Hannibal was good, but Scipio was simply better.
What? Hannibal never admitted he was inferior to Scipio. What really happened is that he and Scipio met at a banquet. Scipio asked him who the greatest generals in history were, and Hannibal said "1. Alexander, 2. Pyhrrus, 3. Hannibal".
Scipio said, "So where would you rank if you'd actually beaten me?" and Hannibal replied "#1, of course".
Could be another interesting transition piece between >>120130439
and present day Girls und Panzer.
Members of one of the last of the all-female cavalry units in the British army, with no future anymore on the battlefield, get a new lease on life when one of them has a accidental meeting with one of the engineers on "His Majesties Landship Committee" and sees the first tank prototype.
Redundant female cavalry troopers become tank crews.
>think of a historical period
>everyone automatically starts jumping into the far past
It's 1999. Everyone's got money, everyone is happy, only a couple small conflicts globally, and the internet is becoming a household thing. Until 9/11 happens, and then everything starts going to serious shit with a string of wars, economic crisis, natural disasters, social uprisings, and the internet absolutely eradicating any hope of any body giving enough of a fuck to do something about it.
>3-4 main girls mowed down by machine gun fire in no-mans land
>next episode is an archetypal beach episode
How uneducated can YOU be?
He did a very good job of avoiding defeat and keeping the Continental Army in being, just long enough to win.
As a bonus, along the way he won Princeton.
He clearly implied that Scipio was the greatest
>Africanus asked who, in Hannibal's opinion, was the greatest general of all time. Hannibal replied, "Alexander...because with a small force he routed armies of countless numbers, and because he traversed the remotest lands...' Asked whom he placed second, Hannibal said: 'Pyrrhus. He was the first to teach the art of laying out a camp. Besides that, no one has ever shown nicer judgement in choosing his ground, or in disposing his forces. He also had the art of winning men to his side...' When Africanus followed up by asking whom he ranked third, Hannibal unhesitatingly chose himself. Scipio burst out laughing at this, and said: 'What would you be saying if you had defeated me?'
>'In that case,' replied Hannibal, 'I should certainly put myself before Alexander and before Pyrrhus - in fact before all other generals!'
>This reply, with its elaborate Punic subtley...affected Scipio deeply, because Hannibal had set him apart from the general run of commanders, as one whose worth was beyond calculation
laffo, what kind of revisionist bullshit is this? He was saying Scipio was unworthy of being listed. Which, considering Hannibal did beat Scipio once in Italy and was defeated more by his chronic supply problems than Scipio's generalship, was clearly the stab of his argument. I've never seen it suggested before that he was complimenting Scipio.
He won battles and lost battles, but he always avoided strategic defeat (losing his army) despite incredible adversity. And it was his key victories at Princeton, Trenton and Yorktown that ultimately won the damn thing.
He and Nathanial Greene are the patron saints of "losing the battle, winning the war".
Second Mongol invasion of NIPPONBANZAINIPPONBANZAINIPPONBANZAI
An exhibit of a bunch of beautiful paintings of Mongols destroying the Japanese is linked at the end of the article.
it's pretty obvious anon that if hannibal would rank himself higher than alexander and pyrrhus for defeating scipio that he held him in really high esteem
furthermore Scipio wasn't leading the army that was defeated in Italy, he was a simply officer
Of course Scipio was going to win the battle of Zama because of the state of the war but what makes him standout is his campaign in Iberia which was beyond brilliant
or a kawaii version of war and peace
As someone who personally specifically studied the revolutionary period in China, the Maoist period is hugely misrepresented in western pop-history. All you hear is the bad and sure there was a lot of it, but the Maoist period also saw some of the largest positive changes in the lives of the Chinese people and people in general in history.
The numbers are always grossly exaggerated in western popular history books and always take the worst case scenarios which have little statistical evidence backing them up.
The vast majority of Chinese supported Mao and this is never, ever taught in the west. The awful things that happened only ever effected a tiny fraction of the population, most of the population only saw huge benefits, especially Women.
What do I think of Pol Pot? A crazed Ethnocentrist Nationalist who wished too ethnically cleanse Cambodia of all Non-Khmer?
What the fuck does Pol Pot have too do with anything? Especially China? The dude was supported by the United States and Britain ffs.
That... would be intense.
>ending is like Blackadder Goes Forth
>go over the top one last time
>soldiers stop running midway through
>suddenly a football game, just like the truce
>everyone is there, waiting for them to join in
>The worst soldier ever is seen dying in the final years of the 30 years war
>God gives him the chance to prove himself and gives him an amulet
>When the person holding the amulet dies in battle, they are thrown a few years back, but revived
>Time gaps become greater every time the power is used
>blah blah fighting, blah blah love tragically ended by death blah blah
>Soldier eventually ends up killing Jesus to not make the 30 years war happen in the future after an epic battle of super mysterious techniques
>He makes love to sweet 0 AD bitches
>Decides this is his final life, throws the amulet away
>New season to milk money from when someone else finds it
>conquering native savages
>spaniards were so weak they had to literally trick natives with sicknesses to beat them
boring as fuck anime. Spain a shit, couldn't even conquer some dumb natives that were still in the stone age.
An anime on the Napoleonic wars.
First half of S1 is all about Napoleons rise to power from the madness and chaos of the revolution, depicting him as the epitome of doing well by doing good.
Second half of S1 would be about Britain's fear and response to a united continent under Napoleon culminating in the Battle of Trafalger when Horatio Nelson gives his famous last signal and wrecks the shit out of Fraco-Spanish fleet.
S2 would have a time skip of several years and the first half focuses on the land exploits of the glorious Duke of Wellington in the Peninsular campaign.
Next quarter of S2 focuses on home front of England and the aftermath of England with shots of Napoleon planning something big on Elba. Last quarter of the anime focuses on the Hundred days, culminating in Battle of Waterloo where we get to see all the badassery that happens.
Serious suggestion that will be drowned out by trolls, but one about the Meiji restoration. A short series that sees the British, French and Americans coming to Japans shores. It starts out with Matthew Perry's Black Ships forcing open Japans borders. From that point onward we follow various Japanese protagonists (a monk, a housewife, a young child, a carpenter, a samurai etc.) through this period and see how their lives change. The monk is forced to somehow unite the old ways with this strange western technology, the housewife is suddenly able to get an education, the child ends up growing up in an entirely different world than his parents, the carpenter has a lot easier time doing his work thanks to western technology but also sees himself forced to compete with an international market that has been using these tools for century, and finally the samurai sees himself becoming obsolete.
Considering it'll be a Japanese team of writers and animators doing this, they can probably shove in a bit of social commentary themselves.
The Chu-Han contention is honestly a really fun historical event to explore. A well adapted anime of this would be godly. I remember reading a korean manhwa about it and as shorty as korean manhwas are, it was god tier.
I hate history because it's boring dumb fuck. The only thing we need to learn in history is how some faggots want to start a war and how a country fall. Anything else are just history autist that want to know if Napoleon's wearing a wool underwear or not.
>(Important too note that the Chinese Revolutionary period articles are almost entirely maintained exclusively by Taiwanese lol)
You know whats funny about that? You might call it Taiwanese anti-China shitslinging, but the fact that the Chinese are so reluctant to officially acknowledge what happened during that time period might also indicate that some seriously bad shit was going on. They're also unwilling to acknowledge that some really bad shit might have happened at Tienanmen Square.
Many recollections of the Cultural Revolution are personal memoirs, not official histories, and most of them describe very bad things. The nature of the movement was very "anti-intellectual" and anybody who could be associated with the "bourgeois" was vulnerable to criticism and abuse. People who owned certain books were seen as intellectuals/bourgeois/"captialist roaders" and labelled enemies of the state. You could imagine that, in an environment like that, academic historical accounts of the events would be lacking. People would be unwilling to engage in such documentation for fear of their lives.
Adventure set during the American gold rush.
MC has no future in hometown, and so he and his best friend seeks their fortunes in the golden hills of California. They sets forth with nothing but the clothing on their backs and determination to strike it rich.
Along the way, they joins up with a brash fellow prospector/comic relief and a cute Native girl MC accidentally marries whom doesn't speak a word of English, and a older trader & his wife who are heading to the boomtown to set up a shop.
Episodes would follow the one-piece model where there is an overarching goal (the quest for gold!) with some detours like
-Peyote fueled dream-scape episode where group tries to find his spirit guide (results in MC accidentally marrying the Indian girl when he wakes up next to her naked)
-Trying to help comic relief-kun cure his dysentery
-Teaching Indian girl proper English because she only knows lewd words
>Middle Roman Empire
>the rise of Marius
>the civil war
>Sertorius vs Pompey & Metellus
>the exile of Caesar and his eventual pardon
>Pompey's & Crassus's rise
I'd culminate it with Caesar's first term as consul and the formation of the Triumvirate.
>Story follows an adolescent girl, who loves machines. Her father dies in an accident and she inherits his money. She decides to create an enterprise around making and selling steam engines and various other machines. From her humble beginnings to her final success.
Everything set in realistic 18th century Europe.
>tfw you know they were almost going to adapt Oliver Twist but didn't
What a shame.
>group of friends fed up with nip salary man/ofice lady life
>scrounge up enough money to come to the states and follow the grateful dead on tour
every day until you like it
A historical tragedy about a pair of siblings who are orphans trying to survive in the jungle of Laos in the American/Laotian Secret War and trying to make it to the refugee camps in Thailand.
