Didnt' see one on the catalog.
General /ak/. I just recently got into this shit.
>manage to browse 4chan for 6 years without getting involved in anime
>few days ago decide to give it a go /thx /k/)
>end up on a 60+ hour streak watching anime and drinking energy drinks
still going strong although I feel like I'm drunk even though I haven't hads a drop of alcohol. Just energy drinks, ramen and anime for the past three days or so. No sleep.
I've started watching Cowboy Bebop, and god damn this show is /k/. It's actually making me want a Jericho.
Black lagoon is one of the best shoes ive ever seen, i dont even like anime aside from Gundam, pokemon, and maybe a little bit else. Seriously Rebecca was hot as fuck, im in love with her.
There's also a couple of live action movies, too.
Sabagbu ("Survival Games Club") is more about airsoft than it is actual weaponry, but it's got an anarchic, slapsticky sense of humour and it could be good to cleanse the palette in between servings of more dedicated /k/ anime.
Niggas need to watch some Yukikaze.
OVA series based on a scifi book from the 70's.
Basically about a pilot and his sentient fighter plane wasting aliens.
Gunslinger Girls is also pretty good.
Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade, as mentioned above, is a great choice.
The Pilot's Love Song is good, along with its film predecessor, The Princess and the Pilot, both are more about WWI and WWII styled air combat, though. (don't let the titles get you)
Girls und Panzer, more about tanks, though
I agree that Gunslinger Girls is pretty good.
Definitely recommend reading the manga first.
That would be like having Eden of the East as /k/ related because there were guns in it.
Gotta have some standards man.
>year of our lord 2012 + 2
>haven't watched Neon Genesis Evangelion
holy fuck op, tell me this isn't you?
They're background shout-outs, not universal links. You may as well say that Kill la Kill is all deleted scenes from Pulp Fiction because Jules & Vincent flash by during one of the ep4 driving scenes.
I never asked for those feels. I just wanted cute girls operating operationally. ;_;
Upotte is mediocre, of course.
Its only the retards who think its the greatest because its their first jap cartoon ever.
Give her a clip so she can do some damage.
After watching the series and the movies, I can safely say that Kino's Journey is one of my favorite series. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
everybody stopped talking so I started dumping pictures
dont mind me
Now to read the books.
And the spinoff series.
>No new Lagoon chapter for half a year now
Mother fucking 2hus I hate them so fucking much.
Oh boy, /ak/!
Are there any operator animus/mangos that are at least somewhat realistic? I dropped Black Lagoon pretty much within the first three episodes because of that stupid shit with the boat and the helicopter.
Mostly, stuff like Jin Roh. I can suspend disbelief in movies like that.
>salacious picture to get attention
>>Are there any operator animus/mangos that are at least somewhat realistic? I dropped Black Lagoon pretty much within the first three episodes because of that stupid shit with the boat and the helicopter.
Black Lagoon is meant to be like a cheesy 1980's/90's action flick, not realistic in the least.
This is where you fucked up.
Your friend a shit. Give it another watch but do yourself a favor and read the mango too.
And is fucking Jin Roh seriously your idea of realistic?
You won't find that many that are realistic. So go watch Sora no Woto.
>250+ post radio thread
>future roleplay thread
>complaining about animu on an animu image board
Well there's always GiTS if you need something gritty I guess? Could try Gunslinger Girl, too. I don't really watch that much /k/ related stuff.
If you don't let yourself drop Sora no Woto early because of cakei and the like, it is a damn good story.
Well, it's not really, but have you seen Black Lagoon? It's an affectionate parody of every action movie ever. It has NOBURU YAKUZA LIEUTENANTS WITH SPIRIT OF SAMOORAI that slice bullets in mid air and carry around katanas in ornamental/storage sheaths because it looks Cool. And "Terminator Former FARC Maid". And androgynous, 90 pound eastern european albino children who cross dress, and kill people with wood axes and a BAR. Which one of them man packs and shoots it like a goddamn Marine. (And it's not cut down like the one Bonnie Parker had made for her by Clyde, either. It's full sized. )
Anything /ak/ expected from C86? Aside from greatest story ever told I don't know what else to get excited over.
>but have you seen Black Lagoon?
Only a dozen times and I've been following the mango forever even after Hiroe became a lazy piece of shit.
And it's supposed to be fucking crazy, that's the point. It's meant to be fun not realistic. You should have known that the second you saw Revy start blasting away with a cutlass in each hand.
Roberta a qt. Even in berserker mode.
Cat Shit One is realistic 'Nam operating.
Question for you, /ak/
I want to make a Lego minifigure of Balalaika. There's some nice third party guns available that I've already used for my own custom Punisher minifig, and I want to know what weapons Balalaika is typically seen with.
Gonna dump a chapter, just because.
>tfw everybody forgets about mini maid
I always wonder what the founding fathers would have thought of this image, given that they knew America's future wartime history.
>"Why yes, it elicits an emotion of pride but why are they all school girls with what appears to be cat ears?"
Big list of /k/-related anime with ratings. Haven't checked the ratings myself for months, though, so ymmv.
>left to right
Sawyer a cutest.
What's the /ak/ opinion on Requiem for the Phantom? Aside from how horrible the names were, I thought it wasn't that bad.
Plot was horrible, but addicting.
The only reason people watch this is to self insert into their tacticool military fantasy.
Not that it wasn't all along, but it became completely retarded post timeskip.
Worth watching if you can't find any good gun porn to masturbate to.
Can't believe I'm doing this, but can I get a recommendation for some form of /k/ anime? I've already seen
probably forgetting a few. No, I will not watch Upotte or GuP.
Ghost in the shell series/movie if you have the patience for political plot and narrative exposition, Desert Punk if you are okay with PG level stuff (e.g. trigun). Full metal panic if you are okay with lol high school and mechs. (Naoki Urasawa's) Monster if you want a long ass suspense thriller, Legend of Galactic Heroes if you want a LONG ass space epic.
Gunslinger Girl Season 1
Gunsmith Cats OVA
Kino no Tabi
Is it really that hard to find the wiki?
We have a sticky even.
The story turns to shit, but its still the closest to HISPEEDLODRAG that Japan's gonna get for a while.
Plus, it's got a stellar soundtrack.
Don't bother, especially this late. You'll likely just scream at Koko through your monitor and list off the dozen ways her plan is completely retarded in a blinding rage and then wish the second season just never happened.
Know a good source for FLAG? All I can find on nyaa are not eng subbed. Or, a good place to get subs
It had a lot of potential but fucked up royally.
That said, I still don't understand why it is hated by so many people, it's rather average overall, with the "war" scenes being the only good qualities.
plot was all over the place and the pacing was godawful
decent enough animation though, and it was nice to hear spoken russian as something different for a change
there's a dual audio release on bakabt
Oh yeah, forgot that existed. I just need something good since when earlier this year I made the bad mistake of watching a sad anime and a horribly fucking bad anime together. Gundam 00 was good (dat Future Cold War scenario) but I'm not really liking much new stuff coming out, except for pic related which is somewhat entertaining.
This is the one I used.
If only a small portion of a show can be qualified as having good qualities, it's not "average". The anime base seems to have trouble comprehending what that term entails (no offense).
thanks, hadn't heard of bakabt
Yeah, that's why I ranked it as "not bad". There was never a moment that I thought "Holy shit this is amazing", but I was consistently engaged enough to the point where I felt like I might as well go ahead and finish it.
And honestly, if it wasn't for the ending I would have written it off completely. I thought the bittersweet ending was pretty fucking good.
what are some good Gundam/Mecha anime that aren't stupid space magic robots piloted by 13 year old cry babies? im really struggling here to find anything
>he anime base seems to have trouble comprehending what that term entails
For fucking real
>The animation was deplorable, the characters were inconsistent and annoying, the plot made no sense, the sound had skipping issues and would often get out of sync with the animation, and it's a Gonzo production. Decent enough, 5/10.
Blue Gender was a pretty good gritty mech anime. the main character starts out as generic cry baby but he mans up pretty fucking fast.
Well in Gundam 00 they... wait shit. The good guys are for the most part stoic and solid, and one side has a near-emotionless kid super-soldier, but in 2nd season that kind of changes.
Still I like 00 since the first season is pretty much Cold War 2.0 politics and armed interventions
Turn A Gundam does have the whiny kid pilot (who mostly gets over it) but the mechs aren't spacemagic until the last few episodes and it does a decent job of resupply/convoy/strategic movement/infantry tactics.
Also has a fantastic soundtrack.
Need to literally finish the last episode then watch the movie. I'm mostly satisfied so far. Whenever I see massive dystopian empires with a paramilitary force that makes the SS look like kindergarteners, my blood pressure tends to rise. I have trouble re-watching Code Geass for that reason
>BRITANNIAN GENOCIDE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
Yeah, that can be a little frustrating. I haven't actually watched the movie myself, which I need to do. It's been long enough since I finish 00 that I can't remember the plot clearly. Damnit.

If you're looking for a manga to read on the side, I AM A HERO starts out with a pretty operator MC. Realistic use of privately-owned weapon in Japan.
Story kind of dives toward the surreal/thefuck? end of the pool after a while, but the early chapters are pretty solid.
Ah that. You know, I'm dead serious I thought Lelouch would fix it. He was supposed to be the guy that got out of anything, that could fix anything. Then she fired the first shot. At this point I was still "um, shit this can get covered up, people can forget this, everything is going to be alright-" and then the Knightmares joined in and everything was fucked. Despite that incident and everything else I still hate Suzaku with a fucking passion.
Kill yourself. Anime isn't /k/ just because the board has a few Japanese and cartoon boards. /K/ isn't one. It's about weapons. Real ones. Not horribly depicted and unrealistic ways used in anime.
Whine to the mods, faggot. /AK/ is board-related.
Some of them are used somewhat decently. Then again there's very few cases where a firearm is accurately depicted in media. I can understand your dislike of anime on /k/, but these threads have happened for how many years now? What makes you think its going to stop? I'm sure you've tried reporting the thread, and noted that its done nothing. Maybe you've done it for other threads. Can you recall a time when it actually closed a thread?
>mandatory anti-anime newfag who wants to fit in post
Watch how this thread is not gonna get deleted. Because it's actually related whether you like it or not. Now fuck off.
>Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina, AK74u, etc.
>Makarov, SBR AK, Dragunov
Hm, I think I'll go for a distinctive-looking AKS74u. Still concealable under her typical coat. The only Soviet handgun I can find is a TT-33 and that doesn't fit the time.
You might try Gasaraki. The plot is convoluted and their limited budget means that the good mecha action is limited to a few key points, but it's worth checking out, especially for a brief flashback to power armor of ancient Japan.
Never has been. The janitors love anime so they won't do shit.
Keep bitching. It won't do you any good, but it will be amusing to watch.
Jesus, that IS cheap. What's wrong with the design/mfg? Can't be a great performer at that pricepoint.
bump for interest, I've been planning on picking up a fullsize handgun
I, too am highly interested. From what I see on YouTube (I know, not very rigorous) the downsides seem to be a somewhat lackluster finish, and some difficulty in accepting aftermarket handguards. Otherwise, haven't been able to find any complaints.
How is that putting someone down?
I mean that such knowledge ain't so esoteric that it'd be out of the question that such a picture could be drawn, /k/ and such sites are probably rife with such nerd/artist hybrids
if the finish is bad, it can be cerakoted
aftermarket bling is for ARs
hoping someone on-board has had personal shooting experience with it and can relate nuances of action, etc
dat price, damn
Eh. My german ancestry (though unaffiliated with Nazi germany) prefers the Bismarck
Yeah exactly, hell you could change your mind and cerakote it twice and still be cheaper than some other full size pistols. At that price point I wouldn't trust it with my life without testing it, but at the same time I don't think I mind buying an untested product and playing with it for a while if its that cheap
OH SHIT NIGGA! Is that some motherfucking Blue Gender!?
I really enjoyed that show, even if the ending was fucking bullshit.
I though i had it figured out as some aesop about living for more than just your base insticts (Kill,eat, fuck repeat) and that was why all the chars that live or are at least left alone are ones who actually make deeper emotional connections.
NOPE Just some stupid fucking "Mother Gaia is angry" bullshit
That King of Thorns movie looks like a rip off of it.
That might actually be Enterprise while this girl here is Yorktown.
I'm holding out for playable allied warships. The devs are interested in putting them. It's just a matter of time.
congrats, there are literally dozens of people who try their damndest know what you know, look like you look, etc. because they think soldiers are teh coolest. Then, out of those, some of em are artists.
>I'm holding out for playable allied warships
I don't play it, but based on Midway, Dutch and Yorktown, I am interested to see if the US ships are scary as fuck too.
>Seriously though, what the fuck? Why does the US shit have that evil vibe? Fuck you, Japan!
Anyone actually make it all the way through Gantz?
I gave up around volume 22, I like action as much as the next guy but when that shit drags on for fucking forever I just stop caring.
It ain't released yet.
>C-86 should have tipped you off
The memory of fighting the installation? it's a mystery.
Now because of all this I am listening to link related repeatedly
It's manga only but I believe it's /k/ related.
Marine Corps Yumi.
Do I want to know what the fuck this is?
>TFW never heard of it
>Battle of Guadalcanal
>" For many Navy sailors, and those who served in the area during that time, the waters in this area are considered sacred, and strict silence is observed as ships cruise through."
Damn it I love maritime lore
Oh god, that's it man. I kept getting recommendations for it so I finally got around to it. I finished all of it in about 2 and a half days with little sleep. Also, when are they getting off the boat?
Sakuya? What is it about 2hu that makes people draw this stuff.
Then ride never ends.
I regret catching up to latest chapter.
Her abilities makes her most suited towards guns and shooting.
I don't understand your question, it's fukken A that why...
Never, Miura will drag the boat arc out until the heat death of the universe
A lot of manga authors have drafts of the end of their series written before they start actually making the manga.
Lets hope Miura is one of those.
Well lets hope things get better and they actually reach the fucking elf kingdom. Or
>They go there
>Elves are dead
>elves are enslaved
>Guts does his thing and kills a few monsters
>Elves are grateful and help
>meanwhile, everyone is still sucking Griffiths dick
>I still don't know who the Skull Knight dude is
Skull Knight is implied to be the king of the ancient world spanning kingdom that got ass fucked by evil long ago in near forgotten history. The kingdom who's ruins lay beneath Griffith's current "Super Eagle Castle Deluxe."
She's shown using a Stechkin APS during the series and a Dragunov SVD during flashbacks to her time in Afghanistan.
Just cause it's true you dun have to say it to my face!
Its the truth.
Reimu is some broke ass poorfag, and Marisa is a POG ass bitch who steals everybody's shit.
Reisen has actual combat experience and training, even if she did abandon her buddies.
