Yeah, and there's also an almost unrelated animated film set in the middle east after Desert Storm. The movie isn't very /his/ but it's operator as FUCK.

some that I thought of:

Kino is pretty damn good.
The shitty low budget early 2000's digital colouring, and potato character designs grows on you after a while.
Gotta read the LN for the full experience though.

I recently read through all of Historie in one sitting. It's about the life of Eumenes and features pretty much anyone of importance in Greece during that period. A lot of it is obviously made up but it's still a very enticing read, right now the latest chapters are halfway through the battle of Chaeronea.

Hyouge Mono was pretty fun

Don't do it. Before fate you read about historical figures because they're cool and interesting. After fate you're just trying to find the best stats in case you get called into a holy grail war.

Historie is pretty good, too bad the publishing pace has been glacial lately, and despite the slow releases the art is still very sketchy at times for whatever reason. Does Iwaaki not have any assistants, or is he working on several different projects? Or is he sick or something?

Also not too fond of the twist involving Alexander, but I'm willing to wait and see where he's going with it.

Personally, I really enjoy the changes of theme in Vinland Saga, it's amusing to see all the people who still complain about the end of murders.

Tokyo Wars, an old manga where the Soviet Union invades Japan and then gets their shit stomped hilariously.

It contains such spectacles as:
>LAWs frontally penetrating T-80Us
>VDV losing to smaller amounts of japanese reservists
>VDV gunning down their own major and then attempting to surrender to said reservists, before themselves getting executed
>Soviets killing reporters/civillians left and right
>Su-27s getting completely shat on by F-2s, the Japanese lose only one aircraft in the entire war, and it's from BVR
>Japanese sub gets hit by more than 6 depth charges; still sinks Kuznetsov and it's entire escort
>Old Recoilless rifle hits T-80U on the front turret an penetrates the K5
>Light infantry shitting on entire battalions of Soviet mech/tank forces
>Entire thing is in moonrunes with no known English translation

But it's got pretty sweet art so there's that

Arslan Senki isn't really historical but the setting is something I think /his/ can appreciate.

>A certain person said, "In the Saint's mausoleum there is a poem that goes :

>"If in one's heart
>He follows the path of sincerity,
>Though he does not pray
>Will not the gods protect him?"

>What is this path of sincerity?"

>A man answered him by saying, ''You seem to like poetry. I will answer you with a poem.

>As everything in this world is but a sham, >Death is the only sincerity.

>It is said that becoming as a dead man in one's daily living is the following of the path of sincerity."
>-Yamamoto Tsunetomo, The Hagakure

>"Now departure from the world of men is nothing to fear, if gods exist: because they would not involve you in any harm. If they do not exist, or if they have no care for humankind, then what is life to me in a world devoid of gods, or devoid of providence? But they do exist, and they do care for humankind: and they have put it absolutely in man's power to avoid falling into the true kinds of harm."
> —Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 2.11

>"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but...will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

Not really historically accurate, but then who gives a fuck so long as it's immensely enjoyable?

Akumetsu is a manga only tangentially related to history, but it's entertaining and political nonetheless. It's about this ubermensch who commits waves of murder-suicides of politicians in order to expose the corrupt underbelly of the Japanese government.
