Has the military ever been accurately portrayed in anime?
It's weird. I was in the armoured corps, and yet I found GuP enjoyable, because it didn't really try ti be military, and was fun.
KanColle, on the other hand, make me think 2 nukes wasn't enough.
This is what I am talking about. Would make a great slice of life, even if it was POG's doing this shit.
KanColle is about WWII Japanese (for the most part) warships fighting off "foreign demons". It's so out of touch with reality (and I'm not talking about demons and ships that are girls) that I have no idea if they did that on purpose or if they just didn't realize what they were implying.
There are people literally this retarded on /a/.
Actually agree on Argevollen, was the only thing that came to my mind as well.
Even a shit pump in his second week of basic would think Sora no Woto was inaccurate as fuck. I really tried to like it, but couldn't. It was a good anime, but as someone who is in the army, I couldn't stand it.
Now on the other hand, Generation Kill, but with kawaii waifu's, would be the fucking bee's knee's
Oh you're still here? You realize this is an anonymous board and you don't actually have to feel embarrassed or defend retarded posts, right? Nobody knows you and nobody cares.
I dont know about anime but manga has a few instances, 'onwards to our noble deaths' being one
the artstyle is a bit wonky, but it's basically an autobiographical account from a WWII veteran
I just realised that my example didnt really illustrate what I meant by wonky artstyle
basically all the important characters are drawn like they are out of GeGe no Kitaro or something
Japan makes WW2 movies too, the most recent one was about a kamikaze pilot.
Military otaku in Japan care more about cool weapons than who won the war. Kancollefags care more about whether the ships are cute or not than if they're nip or foreign.
Not that I've ever seen, infact I can't think of a single title in any form of media that has done it without being non-fiction.
This is why I can't enjoy 'military' themed anime, manga, film or books.
Being in the military made me realise how stupid they all were
>Kancollefags care more about whether the ships are cute or not than if they're nip or foreign.
From what I heard, there are some pretty die hard right-wingers who really criticized the appearance of foreign ships in the game. Though, since Bismark and her little lapdog are really popular with the normies, it didn't mean shit in the end.
It helps that Bisko has the best stats among FBBs, one of the best designs (thanks Fumikane), and is one of the most useful ships period. The only reason she's not more popular than she already is is simply because she's very hard to get.
Vocal minority, Bismarck turned out to be so popular that the devs had to stop nerfing her and were forced to give her better stats. They still made blueprints a requirement, though which is bullshit for Zwei.
Only thing I can immediately think of is an episode of Black Lagoon that had an interesting backstory about a German Captain reassuring his men and stating that he had no regrets as they all died with their sinking U-Boat.
Of course it was immediately juxtaposed against the crazy comic-relief skinheads of the modern day.
That's what am talking about. As someone in the military, I can't enjoy anything that tries to portray the military at all, because it is so off that it's not even funny. It;s like trying to watch a show about tennis, written by someone who has never played tennis ever. Anybody who has even swung a racket would be able to tell that whoever wrote this shit has no idea what they are talking about.
Please don't remind me of that scene.
>US Special Forces unit
>Takes contact from sniper
>JSDF sniper literally straight out of a Tom Clancy novel
>Americans get extremely unnerved, start firing in death blossom and start screaming to each other
>Literally spills are their plans and motives over the net and aloud
The only actual realistic (in every regards) military animu I can think of is Rescue Wings.
There are some other stuff that try to be accurate, like The Silent Service, but some scenarios are too bullshit Hollywood.
