What a fucking waste. This is why most people will never look at anime with anything but utter derision. In this case, it's rightfully deserved. It's a shame too because the animation and design were top notch. It's like the creators couldn't decide what the hell they wanted to make.

Anyways, are there any actual WWII based animes that aren't shit or don't involve little girls transforming into warmachines?

I have no problem with little girls becoming warmachines, it's fucking retarded but you're free to like it. What's eating me is that anime refuses to advance as a medium because they keep pulling stupid shit like this

Anime is cartoons for children, always has been always will be. Just like western animation. There are a few specific works targeted at adults but those are not the bulk and not what it is about.
>>
>>133120556
their market demand is really weird. their movie industry completely collapsed because japanese people just don't wanna see movies that are typically regarded as "good" by people from other countries. this unique set of demand drives the anime industry and at the same time puts a strong limit to how much appeal anime can have outside of japan.
>>
>>133120774

You're missing the point that anime as a medium is supposed to be about "stupid shit like this". If you want realism, check out some live action series. Anime is anime and we like it. If you don't, why are you shitting up our board? Fuck off.

And I can tell I'm right from your obnoxious posting style. You are Netflix thread autist. Just fuck off already.
>>
>>133120870
>anime is supposed to be about stupid shit
a creative medium isn't for anything specific. if you say anime is supposed to be about stupid shit, then you're pretty much admitting anime is a low quality medium even for your standards.

>you are netflix thread autist
pretty sure you called at least 3 different people in this thread the "netflix thread autist." do you even check the poster count when you say shit like this.
>>
>>133120870
>You're missing the point that anime as a medium is supposed to be about "stupid shit like this"

The whole point of a medium is that it can be used to any story. What you are saying is as stupid as saying 'Books are supposed to be about wizards and elves and shit'. Why shouldn't it have something serious? Hell, I'd be less mad if they played the silliness straight and removed the interviews altogether.

And for fuck sake I'm not this Netflix person I don't even have Netflix.

You should really just give up on anime, I know you have watched a whole 20 now, but if you are only interested in mature deep works of art rather than cheap retarded childish entertainment you are going to run out of things to enjoy pretty quickly and find yourself naturally moving on to something else anyway.

>if you want realism, it should be live action
are you fucking retarded? anime can be realistic and there are plenty of anime that try to be realistic. it's a creative medium for god's sake. now, im not saying all anime should strive to be realistic. if you're fine with a russian soldier swinging a katana around, then good for you. but that doesnt mean all anime should be like that or even that anime should be immune to any criticism. let's be real, most anime are borderline retarded and has close to 0 value in terms of storytelling (just like most low budget movies)

They are opposed by a Schutzstaffel (SS) officer who is attempting to raise from the dead a supernatural army of crusaders from the 12th-century Order of the Sacred Cross and enlist them in the Nazi cause.
Are you fucking kidding me? If you want to complain about First Squad at least do it properly you retarded /tv/ shitter. Don't complain about things that are not only in the synopsis but also in the trailers for it, they never "dumbed down" anything or "took themselves seriously". They took themselves seriously just as any other show with a premise like that does, which is not a problem at all unless you were too retarded to look into it and simply clicked download when you saw "WWII".

You wanna know what the real problem was? How artsy it tried to be at times and failed horribly, and also that godawful pacing with no transition from event A to event B whatsoever after the first half of the movie. The ending is so abrupt it's borderline anticlimatic (as expected of russian media) and the final scene is complete trash, leading you to believe there was something more to the movie when there was nothing at all.
