>wiping out enemy capital's defence force saying it's a "hostage rescue situation"
>while being held hostage is presented as something horrendous, people rescued are shown as perfectly fine

>all that forced drama from itami being worried about his platoon considering that there is zero threat to them
>all that coldblooded annihilation of basically defenseless empire troops
I knew what I was getting into but this is just poor storytelling. It flew okay as long as empire was on offensive but with japan atacking the action looks nasty.
Honestly though, it's just a poor storytelling : show the blonde prince torturing and killing his captives, Pina being raped and soldiers being brutal brainwashed savages and everything is fine. But the way things are, fuck this. Just the last episode soldiers were shown as hesistant towards atacking their allies yet here they are put down mercilessly. Why are you showing the humanity in enemy if the next moment you are treating them like garbage ?
It's SDF self-flagellation because they've had it beaten into them by Daddy America. The soldiers should've refused to die for a weak idiot regicide emperor, but they continued to fight against the vastly more powerful Men in Green.
well it is poor storytelling
the author wanted the story to be about noble jieitai versus the uncultured natives, but he knew that wouldn't sell, so he added that spice of beautiful native women who all want to procreate with the strong japanese soldier
This is pretty much an allegory to ww2. SDF are american & the empire is japan. It's pretty much facist porn in the same vein as starship troopers.
Still entertaining, but definitely propaganda
>>pina wasn't shown as being tortured or humiliated in any meaningful way aside from taking her swag from her and being locked up for a couple of days
Have someone lock you up "for a couple of days" and see how you fare.
You might be underestimating that a little.
I hope they will shoot down the mob of angry mothers,widows and orphans too.
No, they loved me. I had a car city carpet in my room.
A couple of beatings are normal though, r-right guys?
war has started over a loli
AS IT SHOULD BE
MAY ALL SOLDIERS AROUND THE WORLD BECOME PROTECTOR OF LOLI
MAY WE ENTER A HOLY WAR IN THE NAME OF LOLI
THE UNITED LOLI PROTECTOR ARMY SHALL TAKE OVER THE WORLD WITH EXTREME VIOLENCE AGAINST ANYTHING EXCEPT LOLI
Well, the guy who made the Starship Troopers film didn't actually bother reading the book, so he assumed it was simply fascist porn and made the film so as to mock that.
I'm not even mad, no work by any of the Big Three of Sci-Fi has ever been adapted well.
Sorry for going into the 3d territory a little, but in
Game of Thronesthey did a motivation thing just right. Sure, irl it's objectively horrible to be treated like Pina, yet in fiction you have to really show the horrors in order to make your stuff effective. If Pina was hyperventilating, pulling her hair out and shit it would have been one thing, but the way things are she is seemingly mildly upset at most, and what is more, there is no apparent threat to her : it's not like prince decided to execute her or make her a whore.
I'm not pro empire but jdf is too strong to go for all the violence they are capable of from the get go. Show at least some attempt to subdue the enemies before killing them.
>> Implying Japan wouldn't turn their children into walking bombs
No need to imply. People who were children at the time did actually discuss the need to turn themselves into living anti-tank bombs. This isn't a secret.
I'm not military fetishist but I can understand loving "unit as a perfect machine" thingy. But isn't it kind of contra with the enemy side? I believe that Roman army was disciplined too and had some nice operations and hiearchy. Actually it is ancestor of modern army. One could think that they would show some respect..
>You will never have a princess battle harem.
They aren't really Romans at all. It would be far more interesting if they wore though.
The airdrop was fucking awful. Who the fuck mass drops into HOSTILE territory during broad daylight? It's a miracle they weren't all peppered by arrows while hopelessly flinging about in the air unable to defend themselves.
How quickly do you think an enemy without any means of communication, transportation or early warning could react? They wouldn't have even realised what was happening until the japs started jumping.
>see people dropping from sky
>shoot them before they land
Well that wasn't too difficult was it? Also the AA they destroyed was likely some kind of arbalest thing which could potentially threaten helicopters. Definitely not for anti-personnel.
They dropped in a field not onto the walls. Bows have pretty shitty ranges.
On top of that it explicitly showed you some special forces team or whatever clearing the sentries moments before the drop.
Just look at the face.
Just another thing they stole from the west
Except that really happened. A more pat comparison would be all of the American novels that feature the US military going into the past or future and stomping fantasy and science fiction foes.
Man, are those really a thing? I thought most "OORAH MURICA" stories were modern fiction, with the North Koreans or someone dumb some how being the top dogs so the Americans can be the underdogs they desperately want to be.
The only real trans-time/dimension American fiction I know is 1632, which is supposedly pretty even handed and about a mining town sent to the past.
Yes, we definitely need something more believeable...
Never, it's too easy for them.
Aero-Shilka is a joke, actually.
I want to see Japan vs North Korea as a comedy.
>Captain! A dozen Nork cruisers are heading towards us!
>But we're a fucking fishing boat! Why?
>We've got fishing poles, some cod, a baseball bat and two balls, the radio, and a Japanese flag.
>Let's fucking do this.
>Two hours later 8 Nork cruisers are sunk, both baseballs are lost, and one cod dies. The fishing boat escapes and the captain has the Japanese flag wrapped around a gunshot wound on his neck and is wearing it proudly like a cape.
>Kim Jong Il bows his head to Japan in secret
Did they really fucking need to kill everyone they were facing? It felt overkill as fuck. You're already one siding them anyway, just shoot them in the legs and it will be far enough, most of them were shown to be forced fighting in the first place. And what is so hard about going in the palace and just shooting the prince and three faggots? Everything would be over this way.
>And what is so hard about going in the palace and just shooting the prince and three faggots? Everything would be over this way.
Mate, you can bullshit your way out of political trouble home when you do 'humanitarian rescue mission' but if you kill rulers of country you're trying to negotiate peace with that's not good.
> Shoot em in the legs and they'll just draw their bows.
No they won't retard.
And it's not a battlefield, it's a massacre. They aren't fighting people with guns.
The prince forcibly became the "ruler" and everyone agreed that he began a reign of terror. the "real" ruler is the king. It would just reset things to how they were before the poisoning.
>>And it's not a battlefield, it's a massacre. They aren't fighting people with guns.
Guns don't matter. They are a nation's military might, and they are trying to hurt you and your citizens. Kill them or they will kill you. You start to underestimate them and it will blowup in your face no matter how strong you are simply because you were being a cocky dumbass.
>The prince forcibly became the "ruler" and everyone agreed that he began a reign of terror.
Doesn't matter. That's not an excuse to meddle.
If they started with the goal in mind to overthrow the government and install pro .jp one that would be one thing but they chose harder, marginally more civilized way of diplomacy so they stick to that.
Enemy didn't even know this was possible.
How the fuck do you expect them to have hundreds on archers ready 24/7.
Also they did recon. If there was a sign of trouble they'd first kill the archers, then drop.
Does someone actually translate this russian trash-lit. I mean this looks far more awesome than "My little battle harem cannot be this dysfunctional XXIV"
These people have VDV-berrets inside space helmets. Berrets. Inside. Space. Helmets. How badass/crazy/russian you have to be to do that?
Did you ever use a bow before, superman? It requires your whole body's strength to shoot an arrow, let along shooting it accurately. A man who can't even stand can never shoot it.
Even if the opponents are gun users, shooting in the legs is more than enough. The pain and blood lost will render and fighting will useless.
>If they started with the goal in mind to overthrow the government and install pro .jp one that would be one thing but they chose harder, marginally more civilized way of diplomacy so they stick to that.
They don't even need to do that. Just kill the faggot and make the princess the empress then make a peace deal with her. Easy.
>Does someone actually translate this russian trash-lit.
Wait is it really only russian phenomen? I always believe west have this genre too like "Axis of Time" series. We call it "popadanzi" in Russia.
Every Bay Transformers movie. The US Army are always the true heroes when the Autobots are getting their shit kicked in. A few shots from their big guns and the evil alien robots start flying in pieces.
I was so fucking hyped for the build up they made this out to be. Don't get me wrong It still jerked off my huge military boner but the whole thing felt a bit lacking. Also what the fuck happened to that reporter guy? Fucking set up this whole stereotypical whistle blower reporter thing then just fucking drop it.
I can't decide whether I actually like gate or I like that it panders to a military wet dream of mine.
Well, crazy military wankery does exist in the west in some form, from vaguely sensible Tom Clancy and CoD-games to batshit insanity like Tom Kratman. But I expect Russia to put in several extra doses of crazy and awesome, at least those covers look absolutely manly.
Why is the need of a stealth op when they actually steamrolls everyone. It's not like the empire soldiers have any power to resist. All they need to do is capturing the prince and forcing his troops to surrender.
>kill or be killed
Only savages or cornered people think like that. They could spare them in situations when they clearly had upper hand which were plenty.
And it is not like it is just for being good sake. It gives plenty points to propaganda. Plenty mothers and wifes of those imperial soldiers would sympathise with them. Having good public opinion is a big plus in negotiations and can save lots of lifes in the end.
But no, they killed hundreds of common people to hated nobles. Those imperials are normal people with shitty king, they don't even why and how they are dying. But JSDF is killing them like nothing without even an ounce of empathy.
he will give shit to JSDF when he saw the women knights transported out of the helis
and tried to have a bright idea to cover news in a warzone when the orcs and goblins attack the surrounding villages around alnus.
his cameraman got the xenomorph virus, so when kuribayashi and tomita extracted their sorry ass in the heli, the wolfman burst out of the cameraman and mauled kuri and tomita.
it is the only count of empire successfully downing 1 heli
Dunno but they made a game after one of those:
Too bad the trilogy was dropped after the first game and we never got the whole story.
Not to mention that according to the author, the SDF are using only Cold War era technology and none of the advance stuff we have today.
What would really get my military wet dream off is cyberpunk Japan with biological and mechanical augmentation vs Gate universe with more magics
Because doing that would functionally "Win" the war, but winning is something they do not want, as it would involve having to take over a government they don't have the capability to maintain.
Yeah, it doesn't seem to be a very commonly used theme in western stories. Then again, Japan will beat a concept to death with three dead horses before they find another avenue to try.
Gate threads are great because they always get hijacked by something.
Depends what hijacks it.
Did Persia scratch Itami?
>Persia scratched Itami
I remember that.
Because she denies it in front of Piña, and the fact that Bozes admits her responsability on the same page is proof it was Persia, duh.
That was the guy's logic. It went on all night.
>It's because the Romans thought that the cowgirl position was maximum degeneracy.
Huh. Is that true? Maybe it had to do with male dominancy back then or something. But it's dumb. What feels good feels good.
>I knew what I was getting into but this is just poor storytelling.
GATE waddles hardcore between "this is how we would do it in RL" and "this is written by 5 year old children who has never studied the topic".
In most series the waddling barely exist and they keep their own level of writing. In GATE its jarring as fuck because in one moment its JAPANESE POLITICS 100% SERIOUS, in the next its SPECIAL FORCES GET GANKED AND LOSES WITH A BIG ADVANTAGE ON THEIR SIDE
So some times, Gate will treat economy as how it works. Other times it will feed on how things do not work, like how book presses work. Or basic logistics.
Or the elves and their nonexisting plan for Dragons.
Tuka has, she's a lesbian who leglocks with other elves.
notice the way she acts. she is totally checking out kuri and koba. when she her mental regressed. she tried to make passes to kobayakawa elf way. Itami just dismissed it as Tuka is looking at Koba as a mother figure
Look at the trip to Italica, she is looking at Koba, and Rory comments so is she your type?
Tuka is just infatuated with Itami because the elves are hippies and the males are ultimate slackers. Her dad and Itami are the first males in her life that showed strong sense of duty and chivalry.
but yes, self proclaimed bi, but only infatuated to Itami
>Bonus points for full coverage.
Their stomachs look open to attack to me. There's no formfitting chainmail, anon.
no that's Kuriyabashi in that pic. At least I think I spelled that right. This girl is Kurokawa.
If women are going to wear plate anyways I'd rather they wear something proper like this. At least as far as proper goes in a fantasy setting.
Anime: Questionable costumes of thighs, plastic padding, and outside plasting padding
Manga: Glorious fashionable shining metal plates
Not every woman possesses the strength of a literal demon like the one in your pic. Pina's lesbo stroopers will be unable to stand wearing her armor, not to mention it has three fucking layers.
this is where Tuka is checking out Kurokawa.
Rori, living 900 years, knows the elves preferences, so she commented if she was interested
Here's what they should do.
Step 1: If you meet the king and see one of your people as slaves you don't beat the crownprince into a paste. Just make your point and get her out.
Step 2: Show King and/or Senat a powerpoint presentation of what crazy science shit you can do. Tell them you could teach them.
Step 3:Drop a shit ton of information flyer with all kinds of information/propagenda over the cities to inform even the common folk.
Step 4. Sometimes demonstrate this cool shit without killing every inthearmyforced peasant.
It has not has to be army stuff. Just show them better farming or whatnot.
Step 5: Watch as the puplic opinion grows so large in your favor that they have no choice but to negotiate peace and slowly become culturally absorbed.
>Zolzal taking orders from a lowly slave
How the fuck did the warrior bunny get out of being a slave? And why hasn't she been killed off? I feel like this wasn't explained at all, especially since Zolzal was last seen fucking her brains out after he got his shit kicked in by Kuribayashi.
Just capture those who somehow make it through the barbed wire and the fences and let the rest go home.
No. They are no real threat.
>>138813319 >>138813570 >>138813941
The Imperials are not soldiers as we understand the term. This his been discussed already.
Roman door handles looked pretty much like modern ones, apart from material usage. If you saw a Roman door handle (and it wasn't shaped like a fallus) the first thing you'd notice was the lock. Early Roman locks were really primitive; later ones we'd instantly recognise because that type has been used all through the Middle Ages into the modern period, but we'd still notice because it has been almost fully replaced with pin-tumbler and disk-detainer locks. Locks were also less common than they are today.
It also stands in rather shrill contrast to that badly animated chase scene.
This. Even a little CG could have improved the aforementioned chase scene a great deal. (The later chase looked decent though.)
Eh, I never got the sense there was much America wankery in that film even if Gipsy Danger was the last Jaeger standing by the end.
Is it so much to ask for someone to proofread before putting that to image file?
Well it's been a long time but she definitely enjoyed men before.
She also prefers men.
I'd be Giselle's fucktoy
>not poking her in the face or the shoulder
Since they haven't done anything indecent by that point it's clearly evident that she doesn't make that the qualifier for "being with a man".
>You're only straight if you've previously had relations with the opposite gender.
Is that the most half-assed argument you could come up with?
No that's me. And you guys are fucking dead.
My Airborne boner is fully erect after this episode. They got almost everything right with regards to airborne operations. Although the commands were kinda shortened the way they jumped was spot on.
>TFW ill never be able to jump into a fantasy land and merc thousands of sword weilding cucks.
Those are some lengthy (and random) leaps of logic you're making there.
>She was trying to get Itami drunk and lay him until Yao came up.
That doesn't mean she's had prior relations of that sort.
>I never said that, though.
It was implicit.
Well ok. Brothel Dragon Girl is mine though.
>Those are some lengthy (and random) leaps of logic you're making there.
are you baiting or retarded? Kind of hard to tell at this point.
Tuka is a young-ish elf maiden, still in the yuri phase where she does lewd things with other elf girls until an orc shows up and teaches her the pleasure of being cummed inside
I don't see any orcs around, but I sure do see another elf girl to befriend!
>They got almost everything right with regards to airborne operations
Except the fact they massacred those defenseless Not!Romans in cold blood. The guys who enacted this operation should have a trip to The Hague.
Neither; just pointing out that nothing you've put forth so far is any indicator of her having had prior relationships of the intimate variety.
Fair enough, I suppose.
there's a comic somewhere, and I can't remember the name, but it features the US miltary making a tactical insertion into hell, to kill Satan.
It sounds like the coolest thing ever, but it was so incredibly bad on so many levels. Google should find it easy.
You think the afghans had common sense? Taking pot shots at my truck with a M2 on the top of it. When we'd find those fuckbois fucking little kids do you think we followed the law? No.
>Have we actually seen their livestock? Have we seen what animals they have outside of fire dragons?
"Ma Nuga" seems to be the equivalent of cattle.
>One could think some of the leaders of the Empire would find/figure about this and take as much advantage as possible.
The Empire just assumed that the JSDF must be secretly weak and had been bluffing the whole time. Because they didn't understand why the JSDF wouldn't just burn the Capital to the ground like they would.
What's with all the water?
>How the fuck did the warrior bunny get out of being a slave? And why hasn't she been killed off? I feel like this wasn't explained at all, especially since Zolzal was last seen fucking her brains out after he got his shit kicked in by Kuribayashi.
After she stopped him from getting shot, he actually BELIEVES that she is madly in love with him. He probably think he conquered her with the power of his premature ejaculatory dick.
The bunny faked both her orgasms AND her love for him.
>Just shoot them in the legs
Why are there people who still think shooting people works like this?
First, shooting someone in the first place is fucking hard. That's why almost everyone trains to hit center mass, since that increased the likelihood of hitting something at all. Even at the palace they fired in short, controlled bursts, because even with a mass of people like that you could empty a magazine and only hit 5 guys.
Second, you'll die of a shot to the leg just as surely as a shot to the head without prompt treatment. When a hundred dudes are lying next to you also bleeding out in a medieval city, your odds are not looking good.
More that he doesn't do anything, just like most other modern royals. The only royals we hear anything about in US media are the British, and that's at least half because our ladies get wet from the accent.
>Speaking of Emperor. How come we never hear anything about the Japanese Emperor anywhere in Media?
Because historically they live in secrecy. Even the interior of the palace is rarely shown. Despite them being relatively normal people now, it is still traditionally to avoid talking about or mentioning them. Side effect of centuries of revering them as gods.
In Code Geass, instead of having it being canon that the Imperial family was executed when Britannia invaded, the director instead simply erased the Imperial family from existence entirely, because it is easier to do that than to deal with the political backlash.
During the London Olympics, the Japanese were shocked and impressed that the Queen herself was filmed in her own real room in the palace for the Opening.
In the manga when they were at the hotel, they had to leave their jeep at the stable. Tuka, Lelei ad Rory each cast their own separate spells/curses on the gate lock to stop would-be car thieves.
>>During the London Olympics, the Japanese were shocked and impressed that the Queen herself was filmed in her own real room in the palace for the Opening.
But not to find out that James Bond was real?
you kidding? America doesn't give a shit about war crimes. the US basically just re-defined enemy combatants to include anyone who happens to get killed by US troops, tadaa, no more "war crimes".
>It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.
How big is the gate anyways? How did they fit those transport planes? Did they disassemble them first?
Damnit, A-1, you had one job, and that was to make the nightgown translucent.
People this thread and the last couple don't seem to realize that the prison isn't likely to be soundproof. Pina could hear all the explosions, and would know exactly what they meant, and despaired when no one came for her even as the sound ended and the rain began.
As long as I'm doing depressing reality checks, people also seem to have missed that the red light district is going to be the wrong kind of fucked for helping out the SDF.
The subtitles didn't get included. Quoting: "They worked with people from the red light district to get them out of the capital."
Huh, just noticed that the subber fucked up capitol.
I guess it's true what they say about dropping the soap.
Yeah, if they would even mess up an operation against those primitive NotRomans they really should be ashamed.
Seriously it is far from impressive what they done here, but then again most of the things they have done here is far from impressive.
Because the military empire is scared and looking to the military to be strong and protect their national integrity against a powerful enemy they don't understand.
The fact that actually fighting is completely untenable is a closely held secret not known to most of the military or commoners. They want to believe they can win and Zolzal is the guy who tells them they can win and seems to have a plan for how to do it. He's good for moral and the warmonger calling for the war that the nation wants.
He's the incompetent roman consul leading his people vs Hannibal. He won't be properly deposed until the military comes to realize just how utterly incompetent he is, which will take a while because he has the support of the generals.
There were one or two thousand other philosophies in the action too. Everyone would have been much better off if Taoism had held sway instead, but the Legalists fucked everything.
>competent of any miltary job
Will this meme ever end ?
>We always deserved that
If we gave ourselves the beatings we so richly deserve, /a/ would be a wasteland and we'd all be off living productive lives.
Fuck Airborne school as well as any paratrooper that does not stay in an airborne unit until he gets physically unable to be ready to jump and still talks shit
You motherfuckers wasted so much time in gagglefucking around when it came to flying the bird around and going on circles for 'x' reasons and not being green for jump as well as fucking over people and claiming you're willing to train people but then fuck over people because you're graduating too many people and got to cut off some unlucky fucks
UAE had that whole thing with their very first female fighter pilot shooting down a friendly Jordanian pilot, who ended up being that guy ISIS burned alive in the cage.
She received no punishment for it and is still leading missions because "muh vagina" makes for great propaganda.
You need to really dig to find someone willing to name her as the one responsible, which just proves my point that her pussy pass is protecting her because she's more useful as propaganda.

Yeah, and they put it on their fringe sites while the media says "Oh, no, don't listen to them, they're crazy and unreliable."
When there's a concentrated effort by the government and the media, anyone going against the narrative looks like a sperg.
I've said it before, but Pina is at her highest when she's at her lowest.
Cute girls being proud of their country.
If those videos were done here in Canada, some transsexual NDP protesters would be spattering them with fake blood and shrieking "Hate Crime".
Or maybe it only hits fringe sites because its bullshit. Confirmation bias is a terrible thing. You want it to be true, therefore you believe it to be true, regardless of how little sense it makes.
Which is more likely?
1. One pilot, who happens to be female to fit your bias, ignored an IFF transmitter and made one of the few if not only air to air friendly fire incidents in the modern era, in a combat airspace where all aircraft were either friendlies or politely ignored, or;
2. Maintenance fucked up, which happens all the fucking time.
One of those actually makes sense. The other is conspiracy minded idiocy.

Weedle's success was forged in the maritimes, where the promise of gubment handouts appeals to the welfare monkeys that comprise the majority of their voting population.

Did the anime skip a bunch of stuff from the manga (but still mostly covering the novels), or is it going for an anime-original ending?
>a bunch of stuff from the manga (but still mostly covering the novels), or is it going for an anime-original endin
most likely an original anime ending. cause they skipped the important parts like Diabo dealing with the chinese, and leilei being possessed by Emroy.
also the anime is not in the top 50 anime, and bd sales are very average.
also the latter part of the novels are not much focused on JSDF, so the government might not even want to partially fund it.
>cause they skipped the important parts like Diabo dealing with the chinese, and leilei being possessed by Emroy.
All of that is ages away, enough to fill a third cour if there was one.
It's pretty obviously going to end on the rescue of Pina, Zorzal pissing his pants, and the bittersweet ending of saving the princess while war looms. Anime original meme needs to end.
>top 50 anime
In what time frame?
this creator is familiar whit Russian history and culture:
The oprichnina (Russian: опри́чнина, IPA: [ɐˈprʲitɕnʲɪnə]) was a state policy implemented by Tsar Ivan the Terrible in Russia between 1565 and 1572. The policy included institution of secret police, mass repressions, public executions, and confiscation of land from Russian aristocrats. The six thousand political police were called oprichniki, and the term oprichnina also applies to the secret police organization, to the corresponding period of Russian history, and to the territory in which, during that period, the Tsar ruled directly and in which his oprichniki operated.
also these green men look familiar somewhere
>They love being told that Toronto will be taxed so that old nanny Sussex can pay the newfies to sit on their ass and drink hand sanitizer.

The no BS answer is that the imperials don't know shit about Russia, the author does, so he's making them emulate a Russian group in name, dress, and deed because it amuses him.
How to princess carry an adult female soldier who is wearing full plate armour.
yep, the anon says anime-original ending is a meme and needs to die.
So I point to Lotte no Omocha.
in fact the ending was so different, the mangaka was so depressed and stopped working for a while, and now she's back, but she in a Masamune-Shirow state
And after one trudges through all the text for information that could be summed up in a few sentences and find no clear answers you fault the person asking and write it off as them just being stupid. I know how your type is: lazy and always passing the buck.
Everything you need to know for the purposes of the understanding both and their relationship to Confucianism is in the first two paragraphs of their Wikipedia entries.
I am entirely willing to answer questions so long as they are preceded by some evidence that the person actually made an effort to understand beforehand, or if I'm in an in-person conversation. If you skimmed those paragraphs and came and said "I don't get it, what does the first Emperor of China have to do with Japan," then we could have an actual conversation instead of one person dumping info on another.
We're on the Internet. You could have that information in the time it's taken you to ask if you just fucking checked first.
>The Japanese should just kill Zorzal, install Pina and then marry her to Itami.
>Seems like a simple way to keep the empire together in competent hands but under nippon heel.
Funny enough, Hamilton later on told Pina she would benefit from the political backing if she had Itami as her Royal Consort.
Basically, Pina's political position is shaky and she would be better off if she gets an aliance with the JSDF. Not to mention Itami being the Dragon Slayer.
But as it is pointed out, the only reason she wanted him is because he doesn't need her. Itami literally had nothing to gain. It is precisely because Itami had became out of her league, that Pina now needed him more than ever.
>also the anime is not in the top 50 anime, and bd sales are very average.
Nothing to do with it. This anime is about promoting the SEQUEL books that are coming. So in order to do that, they had to rush through ALL the books that currently exist. This is the same reason Durarara got such a strange set of sequels. In order to sell the sequel, you need the audience to know the story so far without buying book 1.
Go for Nick Perumov. If you're OK with Slav fantasy, not particularly Russian - go for Witcher, it's best and easily can be found on English. As for Spetznaz, you might be interested in Svarog series by Alexander Bushkov. Knight out of nowhere is first book. No idea about translation.
Legalism, Taoism, and Confucianism were three among many competing philosophies while feudalism in China was falling apart and people were looking for replacements. The Qin dynasty ended the argument by taking control of all of China and burning any books that were contrary to their legalist philosophy of central control. They got their asses booted in 15 years for being dicks and the Han dynasty and used Confucianism, because it was hierarchical and allowed them to maintain power, and some Confucians memorized their books and rewrote them once it stopped being a death sentence. Taoism is awesome because its theme is balance, and while it stayed influential it was now out of the running as a philosophy of state, which meant the Chinese stayed footbinding backwards jerks for the next 2000 years. Japan absorbed all of that by proximity, mingled with their own Shintoism and the later import of Buddhism, neither of which got rid of the hierarchical crap that leaved everyone stressed either from the boot on their neck or from trying to keep the boot pressure just right.
No, we just like seeing operators operate operationally. That means sticking to the defined mission and not diving deeper into a city with 50,000 soldiers ready to wreck your shit when you run out of ammo.
Yeas, but there is nothing better in a Slav fantasy. "Modern vs medieval/ancient" is a pulp reading, it's very-very hard to find something translated to English. Russians has bigger boner for "time travel to fix WWII" thing. Dzipang style.
> Fix WW2
But they won WW2, with an assload of casualties and massive assistance from the US, granted. What do they do, whap Stalin upside the head and remind him that Hitler hates Slavs and will shank them first chance he gets?
>posted as I think it makes sense to do a combat drop of a fucking light infantry company
The only time when combat drops are considered worth the preparation is when you are dropping heavy equipment such as howitzers and light tanks or you are dropping battalion/regiment sized units where the scale of the drop cannot be done in reasonable times with helicopters.
Meanwhile in this jap vatnik bullshit, neither of the two apply as they dropped a company of light infantry and then showed up with helicopters for evac.
Early stuff was in range from "warn Stalin about 06/22" to "Super-Spetznas soldier with mystical Buddhism training find himself on Soviet-German border and kil Germans and Hitler, and mystical Hitler, and Churchill"
Later stuff based on actual history researches and more about regular person being Gear of War, because everything that happened had a complex reason and change it is nearly impossible. And of course all kind of pulp shit. There is even a book(parody) about Empire Star destroyer transported to WWII Earth and Vader negotiating with Stalin, because Force is strong with this one.
