Depends which military. Japanese? Maybe. Foreign? Probably not.

No.
>>
>>122874953
It's weird. I was in the armoured corps, and yet I found GuP enjoyable, because it didn't really try ti be military, and was fun.

KanColle, on the other hand, make me think 2 nukes wasn't enough.

>>122875172
This is what I am talking about. Would make a great slice of life, even if it was POG's doing this shit.
>>
Flag did a pretty decent job. It was a realistic series in general, at least the beginning episodes which I saw.
>>
>>122875231
KanColle is about WWII Japanese (for the most part) warships fighting off "foreign demons". It's so out of touch with reality (and I'm not talking about demons and ships that are girls) that I have no idea if they did that on purpose or if they just didn't realize what they were implying.

Actually agree on Argevollen, was the only thing that came to my mind as well.

But there's boring, and then there's Flag.

My favorite was the whole fleet hanging out at Truk. Which is where 40+ of the actual Imperial fleet still is.

I thought Sora no Woto was pretty accurate.

There's at least one in every thread.

>>122875579
They are not spotter/sniper team.
They are special ops team.
>>
>>122875525
Even a shit pump in his second week of basic would think Sora no Woto was inaccurate as fuck. I really tried to like it, but couldn't. It was a good anime, but as someone who is in the army, I couldn't stand it.

Now on the other hand, Generation Kill, but with kawaii waifu's, would be the fucking bee's knee's

>>122875927
Thinking about it, yeah it kinda would.

I guess I meant something at least semi accurate, but in the form of anime would be nice.
>>
>>122875525
It is actually pretty accurate if you consider that they're a rear unit in peacetime, solely comprised of women and little girls.

jinroh maybe

although they were cops, not military.

I dont know about anime but manga has a few instances, 'onwards to our noble deaths' being one
the artstyle is a bit wonky, but it's basically an autobiographical account from a WWII veteran

Why would you want to watch an anime about a bunch of government drones?

They gotta spice it up somehow.

basically all the important characters are drawn like they are out of GeGe no Kitaro or something

Japan makes WW2 movies too, the most recent one was about a kamikaze pilot.

>>122876936
Military otaku in Japan care more about cool weapons than who won the war. Kancollefags care more about whether the ships are cute or not than if they're nip or foreign.

Not that I've ever seen, infact I can't think of a single title in any form of media that has done it without being non-fiction.

This is why I can't enjoy 'military' themed anime, manga, film or books. Being in the military made me realise how stupid they all were
>>
>>122877012
>Kancollefags care more about whether the ships are cute or not than if they're nip or foreign.

From what I heard, there are some pretty die hard right-wingers who really criticized the appearance of foreign ships in the game. Though, since Bismark and her little lapdog are really popular with the normies, it didn't mean shit in the end.
>>
>>122875354

I would agree Flag probably does the best job of any show I've seen. Ryousuke Takahashi has probably done the best of anime director in general though.
>>
>>122877398
It helps that Bisko has the best stats among FBBs, one of the best designs (thanks Fumikane), and is one of the most useful ships period. The only reason she's not more popular than she already is is simply because she's very hard to get.
>>
>>122877398
Vocal minority, Bismarck turned out to be so popular that the devs had to stop nerfing her and were forced to give her better stats. They still made blueprints a requirement, though which is bullshit for Zwei.

Only thing I can immediately think of is an episode of Black Lagoon that had an interesting backstory about a German Captain reassuring his men and stating that he had no regrets as they all died with their sinking U-Boat.

Of course it was immediately juxtaposed against the crazy comic-relief skinheads of the modern day.

Yeah the flashback part of that Black Lagoon arc I will give you.

That's what am talking about. As someone in the military, I can't enjoy anything that tries to portray the military at all, because it is so off that it's not even funny. It;s like trying to watch a show about tennis, written by someone who has never played tennis ever. Anybody who has even swung a racket would be able to tell that whoever wrote this shit has no idea what they are talking about.
>>
Entire Gundam everything

>>122877794
Well, what about Gate? Surely it has to get something right. The guy who wrote it was actually in the JSDF.

Please don't remind me of that scene.

The only actual realistic (in every regards) military animu I can think of is Rescue Wings.

There are some other stuff that try to be accurate, like The Silent Service, but some scenarios are too bullshit Hollywood.
>>
>>122878370
what era is this supposed to be set in they have missiles on the ship and prop planes.
>>
>>122878468
WW2, modern DD traveled back in time. It's a history revisionism story.
>>
>>122878468
ITS THE FINAL COUNTDOWN~
>>
>>122878370
Wow the nips showed us what for by blowing the fuck out of our WWII hardware with modern AA guns/missiles and a fucking Tomahawk.
>>
>>122878496
Ah kk that makes more since.
