>watching Girls und Panzer
guys I need the /k/-anime list and I need it nao
The original is from way before it aired.
I like that LOGH is the first, most visible entry. LOGH should be mandatory viewing for all of 4chan.
I'd also recommend Kino's Journey, since it has about as much gun porn as a near-slice-of-life can handle.
There's also dozens of /m/ OVAs and one-shots that should scratch a /k/ommando's itch. Pic related is Maddox, and I'd also recommend The Cockpit.
>tfw this is the only /k/ related part of Honneamise
>tfw Honneamise bombed at the box office
>tfw Gainax will never be known as the Ghibli of science fiction
>tfw anime is dying
>tfw 4chan is dying
>die sage ist boruber, die historie beginnt
I'm just gonna keep posting a few webms I think /k/ might like.
I didn't like Clone Wars as much as /co/ seemed to, but there were a few real good, clone-oriented episodes. The Shadow Over Umbara arc was the best part of the show, it was a three-part story about a detachment of clones basically being driven to slaughter by their Jedi general on a misty, jungle-covered planet.
Then there's Jin Roh, which takes a place on literally every single /ak/ recommendation list.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes is literally the best anime series ever made. Star Trek for history nerds, Romance of the Three Kingdoms in space, Napoleonic Wars in space. Watch it, watch the gaiden stories, recommend it to your friends, buy the laserdisc collection like Moot did.
>Gun related historical knowledge and entertainment
Darker Than Black
>There's a PTRS in the secon season, also, the show is pretty good
These are the only shows that I have had experience with.
I actually really like everything I've seen of Oshii, and I think I have some Patlabor ones in here somewhere.
Anyway, here's some Gundam 08th. You guys tend to give it more credit than I think it deserves, by virtue of the robots break sometimes and there aren't any newtypes. Still a well animated series.
Gunslinger girls is pretty shit.
But it has funs, so you guys dig it, whatever.
It's a long slog about one dude who is too PTSD to kill because he has feels from when he was an assassin.
That is not /k/. Just because it has weapons and the odd dude who has anachronistic and/or nonsensical weaponry is not /k/.
Gundam 0083 is my favorite. Good MS designs, Zeonwank, an interesting concept about the formation of the Titans, and the Great Purpleton Clusterfuck.
Gundam Unicorn is the most recent UC entry. Good action, decent Suit designs, but the story felt a little tired. You can watch it without seeing older ones first, but you'll be even more lost than the rest of us.
K-On, Non Non Biyori, Barakamon, and Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
No body mentions Zipang....
>Mirai, an improved Kongou-class Aegis guided missile destroyer, is one of the newest and most advanced ships in the entire Japanese Self Defense Force (SDF). Her crew, also one of the newest, is lead by Capt. Umezu Saburo and Executive Officer Kadomatsu Yosuke. While running scheduled training exercises one day, Mirai encounters a fierce storm that throws their navigation systems into temporary disarray. After a few minutes of recovery, the crew is shocked to discover that they've been transported back in time to June 4, 1942—The Battle of Midway, during World War II.
Sadly, only 1 season got animated. I think the manga went much further.
AEGIS class destroyer vs WWII forces people. Fuck yeah.
Yeah, it's basically The Final Countdown, only starring the Japanese. /a/ said they still might make a second season, but I haven't heard anything for a while.
Here's a little King Mazinger because I don't care if super robots are /k/.
Why don't we ever talk about Pumpkin Scissors in theses threads?
I loved the battle scenes in Unicorn - for the first time they felt like they were actually taking place in space rather than just giant robots on a black backdrop.
The only issue was that you had to either binge-read the wiki or suffer through the god awful original series and Zeta Gundam to really understand what was going on.
And some Getter Robo Armageddon.
I still feel like I'm betraying /m/ by not liking Build Fighters. It just makes me a little sad to be watching a literal toy commercial for half an hour.
Oh fuck, that's Ghost in the Shell.
I'm alright with the ScarJo movie, since it means they're making more actual animation. And I was fine with Arise, so I guess I have no taste.
And some Char's Counterattack, which I'll stick up for until I die.
My friend likes it because it's honest with everything. Sure, it's literally a toy commercial, but at least they don't come up with half-assed reasons to have stupidly impractical cool looking robots and a mid-series suit change just to sell more toys.
I really don't like most of the series though just because it ends up being an all-powerful god robot with invincible plot armor by the end of the series (I'm looking at you, SEED).
UC doesn't do that much and at least tries to be within the bounds of reality. Except for the Newtypes that just serve as an excuse to shoehorn a kid into the role of the main character.
also, G gundam best gundam
LOGH and Honneamise are the only two anime things I ever felt I could safely recommend to anyone. LOGH for history, strategy and politics, Honneamise for Technology, Creativity and Culture.
Anyone who cares about that stuff, go and watch!
Armored Trooper VOTOMS is some dope shit. Whole franchise, with special mention for Mellowlink.
It was basically made specifically for people who say "I hate big robots that shoot infinite lasers and are completely indestructible and without combined arms."
I don't usually have a problem overlooking bad writing in older series. It's half the charm for me.
Ok, any anime without overexagerated shit or superirrealistic mechs?
Girls und Panzer was still overexagerated but at least gived you some feel of respect for history.
>Upotte; Airshit and peace and love in high school for gurls.the same as Sagagebou
>Black Lagoon: It was difficult to take the superuberwarrior maid warrior but when I got to 2º season and started with child vampires I screamed NOPE ENOUGHT.
I'm just about through with stuff /k/ might be remotely interested in. The rest is just girls kissing and men with beards arguing, and vice versa.
Have you tried Mellowlink? It's not leaps and bounds better, but it's a much smaller, more personal story, and has less invincible space magic stuff.
A bit unrealistic at times, but its got good music and lotsa early Cold War planes, so I give it a pass.
Those sound like Commie subs.
Go take a look in the subtitle options, there should be a non-german version.
I'm more /a/ than /m/, but I agree, Porco Rosso is the best.
I have...for one episode. It was just so many hipfiring goons from the imperial stormtrooper school of marksmanship firing at one quasi-invincible grim stoic super soldier who avoids getting killed thanks to nothing but plot armour, and who goes up against a cardboard cutout villain.
I may be doing it an injustice, but the first ep didn't make me want to get any more of it.
Might be trying it out, then. Thanks for the tip!
Fair enough. I just found it refreshing after watching ZZ, I suppose.
In fairness, they weren't vampires and they easily got their shit pushed in when they went full-retard and didn't have an all-out ambush to give them an advantage. Roberta was complete bullshit though, no one can make excuses for her and she's one of the low-points of the show.
>implying this isn't a police raid on the /k/ headquarters
I can't count how many shit OVAs I watched just because they had a decent laser blast gif. That shit'll sell anything.
moot was only able to do it in Japan.
I'm gonna miss that little guy.
redline. it's visceral action, meant to fuck your senses white hot. no intrigue or pontificating about human nature. it's centered around racing, but the action is extremely /k/ related. just trust me on this please
fact: most visually impressive feature length animation you have ever watched, absolutely guaranteed 100%
please imagine witnessing your favorite ultimate weapon being finally unleashed on an approaching enemy on the horizon, now you are a kid again and in the foreground with your left eye you are watching goku and vegeta's first fight and gohan vaporizing cell simultaneously, and meanwhile your right eye is looking at every action sequence of gurren lagann played at once. if that sounds appealing in the least you owe it to yourself to watch it
wow look: it's in hd, free, and ready to go right here anon. isn't that convenient? just check out the first 10 minutes at least, and if you don't like it no big deal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MPe7E1YrY4
I have to assume you've seen it already (I'm the same way). but if not, mentally prepare yourself for the second half
Space Battleship Yamato 2199
A remake of the old 70's show with a run away budget and slightly better character development. Watch the 70's one too just prepare for a lot of QUALITY
Although the show stretches psychological credibility at some points (which, on the other hand, may be justified by the setting), I still find its characters to be some of the finest in all of animuh. Interesting, engaging, and often much closer to actual humans than the caricatures the medium usually shows.
You had best be referring to the manga and not the shitty anime
any chance of Japan releasing an airshit space Luger or space MP-40?
None of those are /k/ related, but they're great
sora no work
don't question me, just watch it
10 minutes of PTSD and spider tanks in a whole show don't make a show /k/, it's SoL with grills in uniform and ok if you like that but if you go in expecting /k/ you will be disappointed.
An entire episode is dedicated to the MC looking at a telephone while having to pee but being unable to because she's waiting for a call.
Also so much wasted potential in the show.
I know you. It IS you. I know your style from years ago. You may have changed your file names but they are your preferred size image.
>what the shit?
>stop split second frames
>one of the missiles has a picture of a pig drawn on it
>another is decorated like a budweiser can (even goes so far as to say "World's Largest")
I don't know WHAT anime this is, but damn they have a good sense of humor
none of these mention Kino's Journey
the only anime I've ever seen to PHILOSOPHICALLY endorse firearm ownership
it is brilliant on so many levels
the animation and art style suck ass though
>Military isn't all "pew pew I shot u ur dead!" It's "hurry up and wait."
It's nothing like SNW either.
I don't remember saving the town from local mobsters by dressing up an playing mobster with fellow grunts.
Like I said, it's a decent SoL but not /k/ in any other way than cosmetic.
Would have been interesting if they had developed the cold war scenario more or ted up the loose end with the giant angel skeleton in the lake etc.
>Would have been interesting if they had developed the cold war scenario more or ted up the loose end with the giant angel skeleton in the lake etc.
I believe they are going to do more with that in season 2.

Didn't realize that was animated like that.

>NEET to PMC

Gunsmith Cats. It's on YouTube.
Black Lagoon was supposed to be over the top. It only works if you don't take it any more seriously than it takes itself.
I haven't seen that in far too long.
That's GuP OST, right?
Redline had a pretty shallow story, but at least it had some nice animation and good music.
Get the fuck out of here with your chinktoons
Or you can just use reverse image search, or google "anime Tomino has worked on".
Why do you people watch children's cartoons with characters who all look the same?
>thinking that means anything
This is still the weapons board. For weapons. Your shitty cartoons can go to >>>/a/
Dude, you're really, really stretching there. A whole episode was devoted to one of the characters having to use the bathroom but unable to leave her station next to a phone. Military is not all action and firing guns, but to say that makes SnW an authentic military depiction is retarded. It's a good anime, but it is not /k/.
You got me there
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Wow, great reasons to stop liking corean cartoons.
Watch anything but the moe shit kawaii little girl animes.
Uppotte might have a lot of gun knowledge, but it's REALLY, really fucking gay. But then again, you're already into Girls Und Panzer so I guess I can't stop you from watching them.
But I wouldn't have fun making satirical posts then
Sure, whatever you want to call it :^)
No clue ;_;
>enjoying things makes you a manchild

>Not knowing Kancolle
Anime replaced one of the most glorious warrior cultures ever. It represents Japan's "no gunz 4 u" policy.
Anime is a cancer on chink society. It's so cancerous that it spread to the West where it infects children. For all intents and purposes, YOU HAVE AUTISM. You'll never have a wife and kids. Thanks to anime, you don't even wanna start a family. You'll waste your 20's.
There is no good anime. Anime in all its forms is PURE FAGGOTRY. It's vagina repellent that'll cause you to either stay skinny or grow fat. It'll rot your brain, not expand your mind. It's an embarrassingly retarded and unhealthy fantasy world so far removed from reality.
Try reading a book, exercising, shooting, getting a gf, etc. It beats watching children's cartoons, masturbating to dickgirls, eating junk food, and then playing video games. ARE YOU 12 YEARS OLD?
I would be very surprised if the anime shitposters on this board even have nuggets. You know what i'm saying is true. Look in the mirror, you're a boy, not a man. You're most likely a NECKBEARD with a vast fedora collection.
Anime and weapons cannot coexist. Anime isn't weapons related because anime is the antithesis of weapons. Even if you post a pic of your anorexic anime waifu dual wielding 2 shotguns, it's still not weapons related. It's escapism, and YOU'RE WAIFU A SHIT!
This may be hard for you to accept, especially if you don't have a social life. SUICIDE IS ALWAYS AN OPTION. I'm serious. In Japan, men have honor. Unlike niggers, they will straight up kill themselves if they realize they're useless. They shove a samurai sword through their goddamn stomach.
At least they used to until samurai swords became illegal because Japan's full of betas who'd rather hug anime girl pillows than battle rifles. You could have benefited from a father figure, and all the mental gymnastics in the world won't make anime weapons related. EAT SHIT AND DIE a virgin.
tl;dr op, please search the catalog before starting another anime thread
Some pretty good suggestions on this thread actually. I'd like to add Psycho Pass to the list actually. Was a good detective sort of deal, set in the future. Has the the now somewhat famous "Dominator" that everyone carries, but it actually talks a bit about gun control and why an electronic firearm controlled by an AI can be a bad idea. Has a bit of gun-porn in it too.
that's fucking stupid and barely /k/ related. Its your kind of people that fill these threads with shit because you think "because it has guns, it's /k/ related."
>hurr durr gun porn
yes, the guns are well drawn because they're traced over 3d models.
I like the art its generating (even if it means cannibalizing good fan artists) but the whole premise is an artificial attempt at making a 2hu fanbase. Hopefully the anime bombs and sinks the franchise so Zun can make a few more shekels to raise his kid.
The girls are literally WW2 warships.
Bragging about the RNG going your way and having others getting mad at you is fun. Like pic related.
muh gunsite video camera view
muh shaky tracer effects
It's about Law Enforcement, military technology, and gun control, etc. That's pretty /k/ m8.
No, the difference would be that the Simpsons had one episode about guns, while the entirety of Psycho Pass's plot revolves around military.police technology and law enforcement. What you did there is known as a "false equivalency".
>you will never be taught how to kill mages with firearms by a milfy mercenary
It was never trying to be "another touhou" in the first place, the large amount of fan created content was a happy accident(for Kadokawa at least). It was just a cheaply made browser game that was expected to appeal to a niche audience, it only could support 10,000 players when it was first started.
Pretty shit taste, right?
The manga was great, even if the last volume was sorta weird.
Why are you comparing 2 visual novels to a browser game?
Gonna post the /k/anime list
If you see one you recognize, give it the appropriate ratings and a description.
If you don't see one that you think should be on go ahead and add it, they keys are self explanatory.
The more people that add to this the more comprehensive the list.
All of it. From Ika Musume to Boku no Pico, no one actually cares what anime you watch.
That isn't to say some anime aren't more relevant to /k/ than others
because thats how lame the browser game is, that there are visual novels more worth your time, I dont give a shit about the "muh weabo weapons fantasies", if its boring or dumb, Im not watching it
>that there are visual novels more worth your time
Why wouldn't there be? Plenty of visual novels are great.
>The girls are literally WW2 warships.
but they AREN'T literally WW2 warships, because WW2 warships aren't little fucking girls. If they crewed actual warships it would be interesting, but as it stands Kancolle is just using warships as another medium for little girls with maaaagical poooowers.
It's not fucking /k/ related
So a few weeks ago someone on /k/ posted some webms from an anime showing some pretty cool looking medieval war fighting. The quality looked really good and it appeared to not have any crazy magic or anything. Anyone have any idea what it may have been? I forgot to ask for sauce.
Has Spriggan popped up yet? I remember it being sort of emo but the manga was pretty fucking /k/ oh also the dubbed version of the movie is free on youtube.
God damn disappointing.
It has like the greatest revolver no one bothered making!
They are the WW2 warships according to the Japs. Part of the whole "turn everything into a cute girl" thing is probably influenced by Shinto beliefs, and part of that is everything having a soul.
Did you know that Japan was turning their Warships into cute girls before WW2 even started? My picture has one of a girl version of Haruna from 1937 on the left, and the modern Haruna from Kancolle on the right.
No, the webms that were posted were showing small skirmishes in a large scale war. What looked cool was how accurate the fights looked. Everyone had full armor on and were using shields properly. The art style was more of a modern style compared to something like Berserk.
>Part of the whole "turn everything into a cute girl" thing is probably influenced by Shinto beliefs
motherfucker the reason they turn everything into cute girls is because that is the only fucking thing that will sell in anime, and is currently propping up the entire fucking market, because of all the neckbeard NEETs that buy it
I'm not even trying to be derogatory, thats the fucking reason why.
Well of course that is the main reason, but the traditional religious beliefs of Japan probably helped it to becoming a thing in the first place.
Dont be talking shit about deringers
sure, and that's perfectly fine, but don't try to pretend shit like kancolle is /k/ related
>the traditional religious beliefs of Japan probably helped it to becoming a thing in the first place.
no, it was because NEETs like to see cute girls doing cute things
holy fuck you're reading into this too hard
>having a coat full of derringers
>not fucking stupid
they're meant to be concealed in tight places like pic related, not when you have a giant fucking cloak you could hide a machinegun under
I hadn't ever watched it until the updated OVA's. But yeah it does have demons and shit in it, the magic part is kind of hard to explain. The first two movie OVA's have very little of either in them though.
>but K-On was terrible
now I'll tell you what
>Forces you to make every shot count
maybe if you actually train with your weapons and learn to be a good marksman you can make every shot count no matter what fucking weapon you're using
>holy fuck you're reading into this too hard
It's a peculiar trait that /a/ has. One of the most cringe-inducing bouts of this I witnessed was when the Upottefags came together and tried to look so absurdly deep into shit like why M16 had an orange slice in her hair, or why Saki was so rapey. You would not believe the far-fetched, outlandish, convoluted trash they came up with and settled on to explain these things.
didn't the author just say it was because it looked american or something?
It's part of it. Demons and monsters want to kill the main guy, so he fights them in addition to humans and everything else.
I don't want to spoil too much, but the beginning is totally worth a watch. Lots of sword fighting and action.
I totally disagree. Ship girls reflect what Japan decided to do when they turned various shinto sect into one state sanctioned religion that was spoonfed to the general populace, especially during the late 20s till end of the war.
Ships of the Japanese navy were built with those superstitious practices in mind, and warships were blessed and made fit for the emperor. Not just any ship could be called "warships" for that matter. This ship girl anamorphic representation is not some kind of invention for the sake of moe appeal even, since the sailors themselves did such to their vessels.
Lastly, the vessels under admiralty law were personified and they are non-human persons in that regard. Japan didn't have dedicated admiralty court, but they followed the theory nonetheless.
>complaining about /ak/
>in a Laotian rice paper quality inspection department
Why so much hate for Yui? I saw a lot of myself from highschool in her. But Mio is my favorite anyway.
EVERYONE made anthropomorphic versions of their ships, and even of aircraft
it's not new and it's not exclusive to Japan or shinto
the ONLY reason it's currently popular is because of the cute girls
for example >>24482395
the entire fucking industry isn't some sort of poetic masterfully crafted adaptation of anything from the past
it's this fucking simple: people like cute girls doing things that cute girls dont normally do
that's fucking it
>image limit reached
pic related for example
Because cartoons are stigmatized as for children.
And Japanese cartoons are stigmatized as porno, thanks to all the fanservice and actual porn cartoons.
So there's little market for anime in mainstream America.
Not him, but some anime does. Look at Space Dandy, However, most everyone else is just trying to stay afloat on the homefield. I don't think many people realize just how deplorable the current anime industry is, everyone aside from the VAs get paid in peanuts, corners are cut at every opportunity and the small NEET base has to be constantly pandered to in order to get their Yens.
Probably bitching about "secondary fans". Tbh i don't think kancolle will ever be as big as 2hoo outside japan since WWII IJN seems way more niche that a hodgepodge of moefied 2spooky folklore.
