You're in charge of producing the next big anime, but there's a catch. It must be:
-not Nobunaga or Sengoku
-not Romance of the Three Kingdom
This : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armagnac%E2%80%93Burgundian_Civil_War (Joan included)
>-not Nobunaga or Sengoku
But muh Nippon Banzai! It's all the rage lately.
Let's see... Alternate universe retelling of the second world war with giant steampunk mecha, zeppelin battles and, since this is anime we're talking about here, a beta Japanese MC with a harem that could potentially wipe out the entire allied forces by themselves.
And then I drop it AGAIN after the priests ridiculous "What is love?" speech and Cnut goes all Office Space because he was so deeply moved by that tryhard 2deep4u bullshit that he became a completely different person.
I'll enjoy it until then, though.
Les Miserables with Jouji Nakata as Jean Valjean and Rikiya Koyama as Inspector Javert.
Music will be Yoko Kanno.
Series composition will be Mari Okada/Gen Urobuchi.
Animated by PA Works or KyoAni.
His face is just saying that he's tired of this shit
Any historical events in the 19th up to early 20th century.
- Ottoman crisis;
- 1848 revolution;
- Paris Commune;
- Qing humiliations, Chinese political turmoils, Sun Yat Sen, radicalization of intellectuals, etc.
- Radicalization of political newspapers (Marx, Proudhon, Bakunin, etc.);
- Industrial revolution + its implementation via state-capitalism vs. social reformers and politicization of workers;
- Rise of Germany up to the consequence of the fall-out between Von Bismarck and Wilhelm;
- Mexican-American war + American Revolution + the consequence of 'Manifest Destiny', all the political shitstorms around those years;
- Scramble For Africa;
- Proper adaptation of the rise of Japanese Empire up to its rise of militarism (instead of the heavily romanticized version like Kenshin);
- BASED Garibaldi;
- John Lenin and the Bolsheviks, its political consequence which shook the world, spawning Satan's red spawn everywhere a.k.a. Red Scare. Start from the First International (the shitflinging between anarchists and commies), epic failure of Second International, and finally John Lenin rallying the Third International (with backstabbing and factions everywhere);
- Rise of fascism: French, Italian, Germans;
- Finally, the clusterfuck that is Weimar Germany. Weimar parliament fails, 1918 revolution, disillusionment of the people, Hitler's struggle, external political pressures, Versailles, rise of NSDAP, etc. Holy shit please make it, Japan. And make it cute but bloody.
Imagine the Emu war
20,000 birds versus a squad of highly
Here's one of the possible scenes:
>Meanwhile, marines on Berwick were being ordered aboard Fearless, which would take them to the harbour. The seasickness and inexperience of the troops were causing delays and the officers were becoming frustrated. Just before five o'clock in the morning, Fearless, loaded with around 400 marines, set out for the harbour. A small crowd had assembled, including several policemen still waiting for the customs boat. The British consul had received advance notice of the invasion and was waiting with his associates to assist the troops when they arrived. Uncomfortable with the crowd, Consul Shepherd turned to the Icelandic police. "Would you mind ... getting the crowd to stand back a bit, so that the soldiers can get off the destroyer?" he asked. "Certainly," came the reply.
>Casualties: One (suicide).
Imagine what the dialogue would be:
>Home 8. Dined and worked. Planning conquest of Iceland for next week. Shall probably be too late! Saw several broods of ducklings.
Anime about the life of Hiroo Onoda, a crazy Japanese WW2 solider who didn't come home after the war ended and instead hid out in the Philippine jungles for 30 years to continue the guerrilla campaign he was sent there for.
A loli Napoleon starting a campain to conquer the Europe, following next by the world and in the end, the universe itself.
The civilisation of each coutry encounter by Napoleon are based on a special trait, like a legendary creature (Loch ness in scotland) or a scientific discovery ( ink in china) accredited to the country, also the leaders of the countries are loli.
A young Henry Kissinger is taken back in time and meets his idol Metternich. He serves him during the final years of the Napoleonic wars and during the Congress of Viena. He then returns to his era and the series ends with him and a young Nixon meeting for the first time.
Defense of Vienna from the muslim pig turk hordes. One of the greatest and yet most underutilized settings.
Dat 20.000+ men polandball charge that saved Europa from becoming a satan-worshipping piggery like most of the middle east is.
>Down at the harbour, some of the locals protested against the arrival of the British. One Icelander snatched a rifle from a marine and stuffed a cigarette in it. He then threw it back to the marine and told him to be careful with it. An officer arrived to scold the marine.
Desert Storm with cute little critters!
Wait it already exist! Partially.
The adventure of Marco Polo from Venice to Beijing would be fun to see, any type of anime that doesn't sit still in one setting and explore various places would be nice.
I always bring him up in Fate threads
I bet he would be a kickass servant
Nobody from WW2, bar possibly Hitler and Stalin would even have the potential to be summoned.
Thing is, the scale of the war was so big that their (i.e. whichever war hero you'd like) individual contribution didn't change much about the outcome.
It's the 65th year since Japan got nuked, they should do an anime for Barefoot Gen
Considering the nature of Ancient Greece I believe this would spawn far too many fujo's and BL doujins to be allowed
The World War I version is pretty insane too
>served in both wars, the boer war and the Polish-Bolshevik War
>pulled off his own fingers when the doctors refused to amputate
>evaded capture for eight days disguised as an Italian peasant (which is surprising considering that he was in northern Italy, couldn't speak Italian, and was 61 years old, with an eye patch, one empty sleeve and multiple injuries and scars).
>remarried at 71 years old
>Summed up his experiences in World War I with "Frankly I had enjoyed the war."
I hope we get a war soon so this guy can get his chance to shine just like those other guys
The Last Samurai anime when?
It's basically an anime already. What would you add, more gatling guns?
>There will never be a manga about the 100 year war, between france and england
>There will never be a manga about the 30 year war were literally all of Europe participated in some way
>not wanting to make a realistic adaptation of his life after all this mystical and/or little girl bullshit
In all seriousness though, I'd probably try and make a more humanized nazi history through the filter of a sterotypical anime trope, like giant robots or little girls
>tfw no qt loli goebbels gf
>the hilarity of chibi jackson savagely beating his would be assassin to a pulp
The clash of mathematical ideals during the 1900's with Hilbert, Dirichlet, etc. advocating for a more conceptualized understanding of the material rather than pure brute force manipulation of symbols that Kummer, Weil, et al. prefers.
They're all portrayed, of course, by lolis.
