Would you watch a historical anime about the vietnam war if all the soldiers were cute girls?
I watched an anime where the entire show revolved around the time around the Vietnam war, and it didn't even have cute girls, so probably.
what if it was decidedly not "cute girls doing cute things" but more "cute girls committing war crimes/general atrocities?"
Talking about shit like covering a village in napalm, torturing PoWs, burning each other with flamethrowers, and spraying agent orange everywhere.
Japanese girls singing Japanese language versions of Creedence songs.
>first few episodes just nnb carbon copy
>rice paddy sol, uneventful and simple
>american troops move in and begin "liberating" around 6 episodes in
>rest of the series becomes the final sections of the deer hunter
I would pay good money for this,
or at least seed it for a bit longer than usual
I can't wait m8. It's been a while since there was a good multiplayer Vietnam War game.
The other day I started thinking if pre-WWII Germany had an high school setting. Like all the big players were anime grils. Hitler could be a freshman wanting to be president of the student concil (also lol wearing armbands). The series would basically be about her campainging for the election. She would probably be tsundere and wouldn't really like anyone other than her friends. They could be people like Goebbels and she would help her by slandering the opposition or something, Also Mengele would be a supporting character and could be part of the chemistry club and would make weird concoctions and shit. She would also help out in the nurse's office and offer the experimental mixtures to students that came in.
Also I watch FMJ again today. Nam would be really dark but I don't think many women did anything during that war.
>don't think many women did anything
you misunderstood. I didn't mean the show is about women soldiers, I mean the soldiers of the vietnam war are replaced, at least visually, with cute anime girls
I want something like this pretty damn bad. No punches pulled, no kawaii uguu, just remove soldiers>insert anime girl of pretty much any war. Vietnam always seems to be the choice because it was chaotic as everliving fuck and the weaponry is relatively modern.
Plus an absolutely bitching classic rock soundtrack.
Well why wouldn't she just be riding her broom as well mr. baggins?
>Removing Commie scum and commiting war crimes
I am now aroused
It worked with cute animals, so why not try cute girls.
No fucking shit, dumbass, I'm just saying vietnam wasn't always americans and vietnamese, the south koreans where there, Cambodians and Laos, Aussies, Thailand, Khmer Republic, New Zealand and the Phillipines were there. Shit it be even better if all three wars were made into separate series. We weren't just fighting the NVA and Vietcong, we were also fighting against the Khmer Rouge, the Chinks and the Pathet Lao. When it comes to a series like this there's a shit ton of potential and story arcs
Do it like Strike Witches.
>Historical setting with a fantasy twist.
>Girls fighting a generic monstrous entity
that can temporarily assume human forms as a disguise.
>girls' primary offensive output is conventional weaponry like assault rifles and explosives, but are supported by supernatural things like magic shielding and armor
>Apocalypse Now-style story about a magical girl going deep into no man's land with her squad to hunt down another magical girl
>what if it was decidedly not "cute girls doing cute things" but more "cute girls committing war crimes/general atrocities?"
or better still
>cute girls doing cute things
>in fully accurate vietnam war
>singing, teasing, boob envy, talking about food, etc
>the spunky, energetic, bratty one starts roughhousing
>she trips and lands face first on a bouncing betty
>half the girls get ripped to shreds in an instant
>the rest are injured or ringing with shell shock
>then the enemies come out of the jungle with knifes and machetes
Nobody cares about that stuff. The average joe these days isn't going to know this unless they're a baby boomer or a vet. Besides, it's historical fiction so it doesn't need to be 100% accurate as long as you reference things most people know about.
You wanted me to post this, right?
Yes, but not as much as WW1/WW2 with cute girls doing cute things
>historical anime about the vietnam war
I was sold right here
>if all the soldiers were cute girls?
OP please don't tease us like this and make your god damn anime already.
After seeing Vietnam portrayed in that Young Jack Black arc, I am withholding my support.
>cute girls doing fatalistic retreads of those scenes with the French colonials in Apocalypse Now
This, I could really get behind.
what I wouldn't give for a proper anime adaptation of Cat Shit One
>cute girls committing war crimes/general atrocities
I don't think you understand just how much this pleases me
No mecha, no hamfisted romantic sub-plot, no aliens, no magic, and no "it's just a game". Just cute girls and war.
A good youkai hunter just won't lead em so much, daze~!
