How accurate is this portrayal of the Maiden of Orleans? What aspects could be changed to make it more historically accurate while still being a good figure? What historical sources should have been taken into consideration by the illustrator when coming up with this design?
Funny how in Japan she's always depicted with blonde hair. When I think of her, the image that comes to my head is one similar to the Jeanne in the PSP game or to the one (heretical btw) of Drifters.
/his/ weeb thread?
This is a pretty decent series.
What are the essential /his/ anime and manga?
Gunka no Baltzar: Bismarck era Germany in an alternative world
Kingdom: The Unification of China
Strike Witches: WWII in an alternative universe. Genderbent historical aces (such as Hartmann and Barkhorn, who happens to be the best witch)
Drifters: Historical figures (mostly from Japan, some from the other countries) sent to a fantasy world in war. Main character is the son of Shimazu Iehisa (arguably the best general in the Sengoku Era) and Oda Nobunaga
>Main character is the son of Shimazu Iehisa (arguably the best general in the Sengoku Era) and Oda Nobunaga
I meant that main character is Iehisa's son. And that Nobunaga is his sidekick.
Iehisa and Nobunaga didn't have sons together, of course.
>except that nips do have slanty eyes but most westerns don't have blonde hair.
And meanwhile zero Japs have naturally blonde hair. And it's also worth mentioning that before the Opening of Japan, pretty much the only Europeans that the Japanese dealt with on friendly terms were the Dutch - who have long been famous for being very tall and very blonde, as well as having light-colored eyes. It's easy to see where the stereotypes come from.
Why are most "historical" anime so fucking badly researched. Even the best can't compete with an average shitty hollywood historical flick. Fucking gooks can't read history with their slanted eyes
They just don't give a fuck. It's all spectacle.
Here's Tokugawa Ieyasu as a raccoon dog.
They are not badly researched. They just don't even pretend to be accurate. They mostly use historical characters in other settings. Or create fictional settings similar to what happened in history, like Game of Thrones.
This is better than pretending to be historically accurate on the outside and going full politically correct, like Hollywood movies.
still blows my mind that this is the same nigga who does Prison School.
I guess he's gotta pay the bills somehow.
>Funny how in Japan she's always depicted with blonde hair.
Which sucks, because the quintessential french look is white skin, dark hair, thick eyebrows.

Only if you're into literal peasants.
Northern France best France; Mediterranean plebs pls go
Well they got the fact that she was just a banner carrier.
Not even hating on her, she told her inquisitors that she never personally killed anyone in battle and actually preferred her banner rather than her sword.
How accurate is this portrayal of Franco?
Get out kid, let the real falangists play.
'Joan' by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko. For any other titles check out Hox's website. It's a shame that the last /a/ archive was killed. His posts are good ones to lurk if I want to have historical manga.
I've heard that Ravages of Time is good. Don't know.
