So, I do not watch a lot of anime, but there is something I don't get:

You never see the Imperial army in anime. By that I mean the Japanese soldiers from WW2, I never once saw an anime where they fought, or even showed them. I googled it, still no results, minus one anime that featured some young kid in the same period.

You would think that japanese banzai-ing and shit would make for a pretty good show, you know? I am an american, but I wouldn't mind seeing a war time anime where the imperial army is kicking america's ass at first, but then takes a sharp turn for the worst pretty quick.

BTW, if something like that exists, let me know and give me source. Manga optional, but I prefer anime

You mean the same way Disney made that Pocahontas film, except they completely changed the story so it has no relation to what actually happened? Trying to tell a historically accurate story is not entertaining, so no one ever does it.

I'm thinking something more along the lines of japanese "Saving Private Ryan"

And really, I wouldn't mind magic or demons or shit, whatever the hell is popular in japan these days. I mean, realistic anime, am I right?

Actually, I wouldn't mind something like "Operation Darkness". It's a WW2 Turn based ATLUS RPG for Xbox 360 with vampires and werewolves, it would be cool if they did something like that.

Not that it is general warfare but rather something like the 80's flick The Final Countdown.

Animu and manga has a higher status in nipland than cartoons do in the west.

As has already been said in the thread, nips are deeply ashamed of their role in WW2.
That the fighting was done by peasants tricked with the hollow promise of bushido by conscription, that everything about their strategy and armaments were backward, antiquated, amateurish endeavors, that they engaged in absolute savage barbarism against people they consider utter mensch, and most of all that they LOST.

There's The Wind Rises. Doesn't really show any actual warfare, but it takes place during WWII.

Do some research and maybe watch Japanese Devils. It's a very polarizing issue in Japan, even today. What they did was much, much worse than simply gassing a bunch of Jews.

>In other tests, subjects were deprived of food and water to determine the length of time until death; placed into high-pressure chambers until death; experimented upon to determine the relationship between temperature, burns, and human survival; placed into centrifuges and spun until death; injected with animal blood; exposed to lethal doses of x-rays; subjected to various chemical weapons inside gas chambers; injected with sea water; and burned or buried alive.

>Human targets were used to test grenades positioned at various distances and in different positions. Flame throwers were tested on humans. Humans were tied to stakes and used as targets to test germ-releasing bombs, chemical weapons, and explosive bombs

>"One of the former researchers I located told me that one day he had a human experiment scheduled, but there was still time to kill. So he and another unit member took the keys to the cells and opened one that housed a Chinese woman. One of the unit members raped her; the other member took the keys and opened another cell. There was a Chinese woman in there who had been used in a frostbite experiment. She had several fingers missing and her bones were black, with gangrene set in. He was about to rape her anyway, then he saw that her sex organ was festering, with pus oozing to the surface. He gave up the idea, left, and locked the door, then later went on to his experimental work."

>Instead of being tried for war crimes, the researchers involved in Unit 731 were given immunity by the U.S. in exchange for their data on human experimentation.
>>

>What they did was much, much worse than simply gassing a bunch of Jews

Germans did the same shit. Fortunately for them, since they kept meticulous records for all the insane bullshit they did, Operation Paperclip meant many of their "scientists" got to come to America so they could work on shit like MK Ultra

You mixed up Japan with Germany. It's a common mistake, but the quickest way to tell the two apart is:

Which one is full of men of one ethnicity molesting women of another ethnicity on a mass scale

>>
>>53785
You fucking answered your own question.
>>
>>53723
/k/ here, since nobody else has actually answered your question, I guess I will.
In Japan's imperial era, there was /massive/ inter-service rivalry. More so than "haha fucking squid" "Fuck you jarhead" and army-navy football games, there was nearly civil war between them on a couple of occasions. Because of this stark divide, they fiercely competed for funding and resources. The Army's performance during the Manchurian campaign and /especially/ the attempted Soviet invasion lead to the balance of power swinging heavily in the favor of the Navy. While the Navy was building state of the art cruisers and aircraft carriers, the army had to deal with tank designs that were, in some cases, older than the men crewing them. This, along with a PR effort by the Navy lead to a perception that still exists today that the IJA was somewhat of a second-rate service when compared to the Navy.

Oh boy here we go.

The American command at the time was fully convinced that Japan would hold out until the last man (just like Germany). Because of suicidal operations such as Operation Ten-Go and the Okinawa defence. And Japan was indeed preparing to do so, as far as giving old ladies bamboo spears to charge at Americans with.

The nukes were intended to accelerate the surrender of Japan without having to do a ground invasion by crippling their weapons production industry. Which it did.

I am not contesting that. I am contesting the fact that you think it means anything in relation to the argument we are having. Japan rekt American armies meanwhile American armies rekt Japanese civilians.
