Is there any chance of getting a plane anime in the near future?
>wanting to give japan another chance to fuck it up
Not until the moe is driven into the sea with fire and pitchforks, no.
what would the setting be their fantasy and steampunk series are cringe worthy.
If you wanted something modern jsdf air force a shit and they can't into non japanese characters.
>No plane anime
This and no anime with cute girls as grease monkeys and spanner jockeys. I could kill for a SoF with a cast of cute girls ranging from genki girls, tsundere head mechanics to cheeky tomboys getting down and dirty in the workshop.
Zero no Tsukaima
Or do you mean like this one?
AC5 was the shit.Chopper was such a bro ;_;
Fight Jet Avionics Maintainer here.
When MC flew that F-16, I gave up on the show.
Sure, it's all about magic but the fucker was on Earth when this happened.
You're telling me when he start up a jet on a JSDF without anyone knowing, taxi'd to a runway without tower noticing, and took off without G-Suit without?
Fuck that shit.
Arpeggio of Blue Steel is probably more realistic than that
Great job, retard. YukikaZE, faggot. Kaze means wind, holy fuck.
Anyway, the anime was slightly too homoerotic and the last episode was a clusterfuck where they just skipped to the end of the books to have a final fight scene.
But hey, it was the only anime role of that BAIGAISHI guy before he became a popular actor.
>Why are there birthday hats on posts??
It's a pretty important letter. I'd understand if it wasn't that important to the pronunciation, but Kazi sounds totally different to Kaze. Christ, Japanese doesn't even have a Zi unless you're following some retarded romanisation shit for Ji.
Like the anime, but it had way more build-up. In the anime, they just cut into the middle of the coup d'etat with no explanation so they could get to the leaving Fairy scene in time.
Alright. I was wondering why it kinda came out of nowhere, even if the rest of the show wasn't exactly forthcoming with a lot of things. I was kinda just in it for the planefu.
You should read the books, they're better than the show. The show is mainly fanservice showing a few of the neater story moments, the book is filled with crazy shit like computers awarding a man a medal so he drinks more so they can kill him, or planes performing fatal G-turns with human pilots inside them in order to save the plane.
That was so fucking bad, what was even the point of that?
There's also Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta which was ok but /a/ will probably tell you otherwise and there's Toaru Hikuushi e no Tsuioku which was pretty good.
>Fujishima not making a fucking moe mechanic manga
>or just do the technical details while someone actually talented does the moe
I mean jesus fuck all dat technical detail in AMG.
screw the relationship, watch the fights
I thought you died.
Will M.C. Young take to the skies again?
We're supposed to get a new Macross soon
What anime are you watching
Modern aircraft are simply too good to allow for any kind of heroics or storytelling. It only takes a matter of 24 hours to nuke the planet back into the 18th century.
I guess a slice of life about an airline company would work, though.
Try not innovative. The variety of aircrafts engineers came up with in WWII is amazing. Automation changed everything to the point where it's no longer even comparable. Aerial combat now and then are two completely different things.

>Aerial combat now and then are two completely different things.
It's really hard to tell what "real" modern all out air combat would look like. Analysts usually had a very different idea what air combat would be than what it later turned out to be. For example, people believed that a tight turn was important after WW1, yet climb, speed and armament turned out way more decisive during WW2. After WW2 people thought guns would become obsolete due to missiles, yet 50s and 60s era jet combat still saw a whole lot of use of gun combat.
Whether modern jet combat would be all BVR is something impossible to foretell, since especially during war, people become quite innovative.
I agree that the premise of modern jet combat isn't as interesting as WW1, WW2 and early jet combat, simply because it's not as close and personal.
>say there is already a few
>somebody asks you to prove it
>LOL IM NOT SPOONFEEDING YOU
The fact you cant name one good plane anime shows how retarded you are
Anon you're a fucking dumbass you know that?
You almost had something with the Typhoon and Rafale, but ya blew it with every other plane.
Especially with such surgical absence of gems like the Flanker and Eagle.
I fucking love A-10.
It's a lot more mindgames though.
Especially when you realize how different individual planes handle and how you need to exploit every advantage you've got in the middle of a furball.
Did you know that the average plane in the USAF inventory is designed for high speed cornering, whereas the Soviet arsenal is more for low speed hypermaneuverability?
do you want little girls with your planes? If not dont expect anything at least, in the next 20 yrs.
Meanwhile you can watch;
Area 88 (the old non 3d one from the 80's)
Last exile s1(not s2)
Seinen helicopter bonus: Rescue Wings
Seinen history of aviation and space exploration bonus: Wings of Honneamise
>Is that supposed to be some kind of transforming A-10 or something?
Alternate history Earth: aliens invade, bring along laser-spewing critters that one-shot anything flying, so humans invent flying robots so you can dodge the close combat aliens by jumping/flying, and dodge the laser aliens by using terrain-masking.
Real world planes are developed in the form of mecha.
Rafale a shit. Phantom has more "thrust", if you know what I mean.
the nips don't make plane anime because they don't fly so good.
They were trolling the carrier crew.
The SAF isn't well liked on either side of the Passageway.
You should go check out Yukikaze, it's pretty cool.
I still find it really really questionable that the FAF managed to develop fighter designs (and all the peripheral technologies that go along with them like engines, weapons, computers etc) while entirely isolated from the scientific/engineering community on Earth and therefore none of their advancements making it back over there.
I just went with the old "technology advances way faster in a warzone due to necessity" thing. Plus they were probably getting huge grants at least in the early years for keeping the JAM at bay, and by the time people started forgetting the FAF had sentient computers designing new fighters anyway.
Are you a fucking idiot? Just google it.
>Updated 1 week ago
Oh boy, I truly love FHS.
>Making Rafale so scared she Chaff herself.
You can bump up the resolution that it renders the game at and enable other stuff like AA.
The wings presumably generate lift even while flying backwards.
They're not really isolated.
The tech bleedover however is suppressed by localized circumstances (the FAF airfleet is largely purpose built for the Faery occupation rather than for Earth-side matters) combined with departmental politicking (namely that the SAF has the clout to commission stuff like the Super Sylph and Maeve/Rafe as personal use machines that no one else gets to fuck around with just by waving rank around). FAF keeps its stuff because the war's their problem, not Earth's, as weird as that sounds.
Besides, the private sector tries to recruit retired FAF pilots to serve their own ends. Everyone scrabbles for what scraps they can get, but there is a lot of autonomy going on in how the Faery occupation is handled.
Also the FAF is almost entirely autonomous in how it's structured. Earth provides foodstuffs but because the way the war is fought can change in a moment's notice the FAF is structured with its own engineering and production elements to produce designs reflecting constantly evolving theory to counter a dynamic threat like the JAM.
Earth can't be expected to keep up or even make good use of the shit the FAF fabricates.
They had no way to predict that he would fuck up like that because of the medal and therefore give them proof that the whole thing needed automation.
It seemed more like an experiment on the computer side.
>They had no way to predict that he would fuck up like that
That's debatable, especially once you put stuff from the second book into context.
They could've easily profiled Amata to determine how he and by extension humanity as they perceive it is a liability in the war.
It's pretty clear that if you give a guy a medal for no reason, he'll get ostracised by his peers. For low quality labourers, it's a pretty safe bet he'll start drinking more heavily and endanger operations in a minor way.
It also easily raises suspects about the computer's behavior although it seemed that only the SAF cared about it.
It didn't seem like they needed the excuse for it. They could have just asked nicely and the System Corps would have licked their silicon asses and granted them their wish.
They'd tried to push through that level of automation before, and been met with refusals from some of the other human commanders. With a potential catastrophe caused by human error, and averted thanks to automated systems, nobody could say no.
