Why haven't they made a good war anime without all the obnoxious mecha shit.
>>
tanks are mecha
>>
why have war when you can have war with robots

even IRL agrees

Watch videos from Ukraine.

Because Japs cannot into modern war, they have to use their imaginations too much.
>>
>>110670434
I've wondered about this for a while. So many mecha shows feature civil war and the effects it has on people. There's great drama there but it always has to feature fucking giant robots. Is this just to sell merchandise?
>>
There is a good war anime. It's called Grave of the Fireflies. It doesn't have any fighting at all.
>>
>>110670892
I'd watch an anime on the current crisis in Ukraine. Cute Russian girls doing Russian things.

>>110670434
Jormungand was ok and it had modern weaponry, but it's not really a war anime.
>>
>>110671075
Yes, but also why use animation for boring old war, when you could use live action?
The audience of anime aren't into that part of war movies anyway.

I love the Thunderbolt II, it's just a product of its time- that time being the late 1970's. It worked and it worked well in the 1980's when everyone had a strategy which revolved around Heavy Fighters, Light Multiroles, and Ground Attack aircraft. But with the paradigm shifting towards multiroles, it's becoming out of date, and quickly. If you could spend the maintenance to keep a 'Hog and a Hornet running, or just two Hornets, which would you prefer to pay the bill for?

What I wouldn't give for a long-running manga or anime set in an early-mid 19th century world where two equally-matched nations are at war and, for one reason or another, all the fighting has to be done by teenaged girls. Of course, there would be futile charges, gory deaths, amputations, and general hardship galore.

Let me tell you a story about the south-western lookout pillbox, located in the School for Combat Engineering somewhere in the middle of no-where, Israel.
I remember it like it was 2005. I was doing guard duty for no reason at all (as if there's a reason for anything you do in boot camp), when I decided to look at the local graffiti.
To my surprise, I discovered an offline bulletin board discussing anime. Naruto was a thing, and so were Bleach (but tbh they were both good at the time). Then some guy went on and on about how Trigun was the best thing EVAR, and some other guy called bullshit on that and said NGE was better.

It was all written with a sharpy on the rust covering the inside of a pillbox. Let that sink in.

>steal their land
If you mean state property, the last owner of the Palestine/Israel area prior to Israel was the United Nations Mandate. The west bank belonged to Jordan, and Israel offered it back after the Yom Kippur war. Jordan refused. If you mean private land, settlements are all either built on vacated land or privately-owned Israeli land.
>massacre their people
I assume you missed the UNHRW report about finding rockets in a school? Are you really arguing people that would put rockets in a building explicitly built for young children would be unwilling to put them into civilian apartments?
>fire rockets on civilian buildings
Israel actually phones the building fifteen minutes before, drop leaflets and fire a dud into their ceiling five minutes before actually leveling the building.
>use Palestinian children as shields
Individual infractions are not reflective on overall IDF policy, which stands in contrast to Hamas.
>fire on Palestinian Children on beaches

Because the social climate in Japan and political climate in East Asia makes it very difficult for something like that to be produced. China perceives all sorts of minor cultural shit in Japan as militaristic and it sparks real world violence against Japanese people.

Germany is the modern conglomeration of territory originally unified by Prussia. Prussians are a subset of German peoples. Saying Prussians are not German is like saying New Englanders are not American

No, Germany was formed on the 16th of April of 1871, and the war ended on the 10th of May, 1871 with the treaty of Frankfurt. The annexation of alsace did not occur until after that.

No, if Austria won the Brothers' war, they would have formed Greater Germany, either by annexation or as a confederation, like the earlier German confederation. Austrians are German until they lost the Brothers' war.
>Germany is the modern conglomeration of territory originally unified by Prussia. Prussians are a subset of German peoples. Saying Prussians are not German is like saying New Englanders are not American
Prussians were originally Baltic. It wasn't until Brandenburg uniting Prussia did they join the HRE and later form the German confederation.
Germany has existed since Roman times, just never unified until Prussia won the Brothers' War and the Franco-Prussian War.

Interesting theory.

>>110681651
Congrats on your illusory correlations.
>German Empire=/=German
Then was the Fourth Republic not France? Or the Republic of China not China? Or is the pre-1945 Empire of Japan not Japan? if you strictly mean the Federal Republic of Germany, then Germany has never lost and only won, since the Federal Republic of Germany has taken part in three wars (the kosovo war, the Bosnian war and the afghanistan war), two of which were victories and one which ahs yet to be concluded.

>Republic of Texas=/= United States of America
Because Texas only includes a portion of the land that would form the United States of America.

>the Confederacy (viewed by everyone but the US as its own nation)

That's not exactly true, a crucial part of the politics surrounding the US Civil War is that the Confederacy was never granted official recognition of its independence by powers like Great Britain, which would have come with perks like ambassadorial privileges and whatnot.

Actually, you never freed Germany, since the German Empire and Nazi Germany =/= Federal Republic of Germany. You never freed Japan either, since the Japanese Empire =/= Japan
>>
>>110682021

How so? There would be no reason to think of the Confederacy as an entirely seperate power; it was composed entirely of former American citizens on land claimed by the US. I'm interested in seeing the basis of your logic, because nothing in the sources I've read seems to indicate that there was a cultural bias towards recognition of the Confederacy in Europe, otherwise the Confederates would have had a much easier time getting it.
