He can't die if he's been dead from the start.
>A fucking lesbo will destroyer the Not!Germany
I thought of this actually. Seems like there's some misinformation going on about him since the Brittania dude thought he was bedridden but Fine said "no he's fine". Wouldn't surprise me if his death is being concealed to keep order.
>the safety is on
I really enjoyed the attention to details they gave to it.
How big of a shitstorm will it be when the witch blows up a Tiger or a Panzer with that fucking gun?
>Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!
>a Tiger or a Panzer
A Tiger is a panzer, that's just a German term for tank that commonly refers to German WWII tanks.
But it probably wouldn't be much of a shitstorm. Izetta is a which, after all, so she could probably enhance the capabilities of the rifle to be able to penetrate a Tiger's armor.
Ending like SnW where Finé marry some emperor to guarantee her country and people safety.
Is Finé fine?
Anyone has the hi-res scans for the covers of Youjo Senki? I only have the one for vol 6.
>that's just a German term for tank that commonly refers to German WWII tanks
Panzer is a German term and, at least most of the time, just means tank. The Tiger is a specific type of Heavy Tank.
>Fun fact: WW2 anti-tank rifle are useless against tanks in most case.
Fun fact: German schürzen was made to stop anti-tank rifles and not panzerfausts and other man portable HEAT rockets.
Nobody argues that modern by ww2 standards tank armor is too tough for am rifles, but they still posed a danger from rear and sides to the lighter armored panzer 2, 3 and 4.
Are you both trying to be stupid?
A Panzer can either mean a tank in general or a specific tank.
>When used in German.
Yeah no shit, because it usually means tank. That was the point.
maybe, the /ak/ show of the season is most def brave withces
Well, considering it's only 1940 now, and schurzen wasn't introduced until about 1943, I'd say it'd be pretty useful against the Panzer IIIs and IVs we see in episode 1, especially when shot from behind/the top.
>VIII.2 (in the basilica); 1864: Samius to Cornelius: go hang yourself!
Man really didn't change one bit after all this time.
Except they could fug anyone without problems and had slaves.
So this show seems promising, how do you think the plot is going to fuck itself over?
Will it introduce a villain who's entire motivation is to rape hime and spend the cours on yuridamsels in hetdistress?
Will it introduce notzi mahoutsukai anbd devolve the formula into LN-esque magic battles between majo ubermensch who singe-handedly laying waste to entire armies of cannonfodder and decide the entire outcome of the war and world history in a series of 1v1 fights between colourful archetypes.
Or will it go the trainwreck route and introduce a new ridiculous twist at the end of each episode, growing progressively more stupid and ridiculous until the main appeal becomes just seeing what kind of shit they'll come up with next?
Am I supposed to find this girl cute?
Because I don't. Not really.
that's not how it works you retard.
That is exactly the point, why do you think I posted the link.
For the love of god, Japan, please don't fuck this up. Give me a decent WW2 anime for once this decade. No fucking "power of friendship!" bullshit. The flying anti-tank rifle is hard enough already to suspend my disbelief.
High ranking Germanian officials disagree with you.
I hope they keep this up the whole series.
>She managed to evade our patrols and escape the crash site? I guess she really is a tomboy...
>You're telling me that a witch and a tomboy took out a whole company of Panzer IIIs?!
>Ah, here at last, the runaway tomboy princess and a witch, come to assassinate the emperor of Germania
They've also used the fictional setting to take some interesting liberties with certain designs.
For example, pic related. I'm no expert, but I don't think any german warplanes had propellers attached to their landing gear.
Fuck the lesbo wicth. Germania needs ubber powered amors!
More propeller for extra speed

I love how people complain about /Pol/ shitting up the threads and then start making political comments about Hitler and the Nazis. One of the sole things /Pol/ prides itself on besides meme magic.
Here, let me help you out, man.
This show will lost the chance to be focused on air battles, but will focus on muh yurishit
Give it time. I'm sure the budget will make itself known eventually.
So, regarding Germanian aggression, do you guys think the reasoning behind their attack is going to be more reminiscent of WW1 or WW2?
>anime about WW2
>Germans are evil and souless
kill. me. fucking. now.
Agreed. Too often people forget there were plenty of German soldiers who were forced into this situation without their consent.
Portraying every German as a willing collaborator in the atrocities authorized and ordered by their superiors is poor story telling. There were Germans who actively betrayed orders and put themselves in danger to save others.
The blame should fall very largely upon the upper Echelon of the Nazi regime.
Dont be fool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ihIJ1UZAVk
still triggers me really fucking hard. by the late war, Germans were just protecting their country from Soviet thugs who raped thousands of women and Brits/Americans who flattened every German city.
I think it's in real poor taste when movies, fims, cartoons, etc. portray the German army as evil, when many of them were just protecting their people and didn't even support Hitler.
So many good and moral German soldiers lost their lives protecting their country. May they rest in peace.
I'm not disputing any of your real world claims, I just find it pointless to get up in arms about fiction, particularly something like this that is clearly not attempting to be realistic or make any sort of serious commentary.
> to get up in arms about fiction
Fuck, I should clarify - to get up in arms about this kind of political shit in fiction. Getting up in arms about fiction is all we ever do here.
The Germanians we've seen so far who have been "evil and soulless"\ are most likely high ranking members of the notSS (goateeman, agent 007), we haven't really seen or given any exposition on rank and file soldiers and found out what they think of the state of affairs. What we have seen "normal" soldiers do is:
>Inspect a train looking for someone, and chase after her when they find her
>Invade a country on order of their superior officers
>Shoot a prisoner who has stolen a weapon and is aiming it at their superior officer
It's gonna be. Below is the complete resume of the writer, as chief writer (original creator or series composition)
>Dance in the Vampire Bund
>Denpa teki na Kanojo OAV
>Qwaser of Stigmata
>Sound of the Sky
>Strike The Blood
The question isn't whether it's shit, but whether it's going to be an entertaining shitfest prone to encourage copious shitposting, or just a boring piece of crap everyone will forget in few weeks.
>justifying and reacting to some random media portrayal
Literally WHO cares? Are you German? Ever thought of your ancestors or figured out what kind of people they were, have a connection and know what they were doing? Then you should already know what it was like and how retarded the general media "vision" is. The opinions of other people are irrelevant.
>Below is the complete resume of the writer, as chief writer (original creator or series composition)
>Sound of the Sky
I trust the writer of Sora no Woto to handle a war story with nuance though.
FUCK LESBO WITCH GERMAN SCIENCE IS THE BEST OF THE WORLD!
What angers me though, is that Germans are always the bad guys no matter what. I wish there was more movies and such that showed a more objective point of view. No Germans are not evil and barbaric. even plenty of high ranking Germans during WW2 were good people. see Oskar Schindler
and it's hypocritical because you'll never see a historical anime where Japan is the bad guy.
Denpa teki na Kanojo
Sora no Woto
Strike the Blood
Dance in the Vampire Bund
Seikon no Qwaser
This isn't that bad, honestly.
>you'll never see a historical anime where Japan is the bad guy
There's one old anime movie about a Chinese prisoner-of-war slave who escapes and is hunted down, but no one ever subbed it.
And you don't see many movies where America is the bad guy in WWII coming out of hollywood either.
The reason is because that shit wouldn't sell.
The author of this also did Sora no Woto which was a wartime story and showed both sides (at least on the individual level) to be human, I doubt we'll just get superevil nazi babyrapers.
Because Hitler is more powerful than nukes
>Germans are always the bad guys no matter what.
In a WW2 context, that is largely correct though.
In a WW1 context or before you would have a point, but so long as you're discussing WW2, then THE German is a bad guy.
>a more objective point of view
You mean, a point of view that shows more individuals. There are such movies that point out that not every German is an asshole.
There's tonnes of anime where the Japanese Imperial allegory are the antagonists, It's actually super common within their own literature, they just don't come right out and say "this faction is us from WW2"
You've probably watched at least 1 show in the past year where the characters were manipulated by an evil and corrupt authority figure into fighting an evil, alien, mysterious "other" that was invading their homeland, only to discover that the "other" were actually good and their authority figures were the bad ones. It's pretty blatant.
Also, none of the Yourmans shown so far have been explicitly evil or unreasonable people outside of that one shady guy that killed his comrades to keep a secret. This kind of story always ends up with imperialist 19th century nationalism being the real bad guy, embodied by some comically evil singular leader, while the rest of the faction is reasonable, but passionate believers following the courage of their convictions and utterly blameless. The fact that this history is basically "Germany but without National Socialism and no holocaust" makes it even more clear than we're going with a liberal arts college version of 20th century history rather than a "remember duh 6 gorillion" version.
The thing about a lot of these anime are that the individual episodes are really well written character-wise. Individually. I've rather enjoyed episodes. However, overall plot-wise, the writer takes what could be a good plot, and decides to over-complicate things to the point they don't make any sense and the explanations that are given for how something works in-universe are total shit.
>even plenty of high ranking Germans during WW2 were good people. see Oskar Schindler
>unironically falling for this joke
>unironically thinking someone is a good guy because he saw an opportunity for free labour
I love this shit and your random classifications for who's the good guy just because the first guy who did the exact opposite of the majority is now a "good" guy.
>"Germany but without National Socialism and no holocaust"
I mean, we've seen one episode, and we know Germania has an emperor, they could very well have similar political/social norms as Nazi Germany. I doubt the holocaust will play much into it though, since this will most likely be a story about a small nation fighting off an invading neighbor instead of WWII from start to finish.
This. From an organizational standpoint it's difficult to portray a sympathetic view of the Germans. Too many innocent people killed.
There are plenty of opportunities to show Germans who risked their lives to save people but that's more of an individual perspective and there are still plenty of those.
Mate, if Germans were all crazy bad shitters the country wouldn't have done a flipabout after WWII. It's just that the better folks weren't in power (obviously), and therefore are largely unimportant or uninteresting.
>In a WW2 context, that is largely correct though.
no it's not. Germans were protecting their homeland and people from thugs and rightfully so. Soviets rapes and killed tens of thousands of Germans, and the British and Americans were not angels either. Almost all of the Allied soldiers who committed war crimes got off scott free or with a slap on the wrist
>Almost all of the Allied soldiers who committed war crimes got off scott free or with a slap on the wrist
No they didn't, just like the German soldiers that got either shot or dragged infront of a court.
If you take out the persecution of minorities and attempted genocide, there's not really much else to nazi germany. Without the holocaust they're just a typical over-ambitious european imperialist state with really snazzy uniforms and a military win-streak.
>Almost all of the Allied soldiers who committed war crimes got off scott free or with a slap on the wrist
This is always how it has been, and nobody is denying that the Red Army did horrible things.
Hell, Band of Brothers has one of the characters mow down a group of German PoWs shortly after one of those PoWs had a discussion with a different character about his past living in America.
But Germany is not a sweet innocent summer child nor was it's occupation unwarranted after it started numerous wars of aggression against it's neighbors, regardless of the opinions of it's rank and file soldiers.
>the country wouldn't have done a flipabout after WWII.
That one was largely controlled by the outside though, and amusingly it was a lot more shallow than most people think. The purge of socialism after the fall of the GDR was much more thorough.
He's right if you're referring to the start of WW2 and you've got a point if you're referring to the end of the war.
The Nazi invasion of Poland and the following killings and expulsions of Poles, Slavs, Jews and others were reprehensible. They were bad guys in that context.
The Allies unfortunately failed to understand that 2 wrongs don't make a right and were brutal themselves in their invasion of Germany (Dresden, etc)
The Nazis committed great atrocities but that didn't justify the Allies doing the same.
An army doesn't suddenly become full of good guys once its ass is kicked back across its own borders. The idea that people become protectors and therefore good once they start losing is silly.
Schindler literally burned through his entire fortune and became destitute paying off bribes to Nazi officials to protect his workers. He's credited with saving 1200 Jewish lives. Hell, he was named Righteous Among the Nations by the Israeli government for what he did.
If there was self interest involved I think you might be seeing more than what there was.
>The Nazis committed great atrocities but that didn't justify the Allies doing the same.
That's where your wrong kiddo.
yes they did https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allied_war_crimes_during_World_War_II
If only western Europe listened to Wilson's 14 point plan, things would have gone very differently. People turned to Hitler because their country was devastated by the treaty of Versailles. If you listen to his speeches, it's one of his platforms.
if your country was being invaded by foreigners who raped your women, killed the civilians, and pillaged all your towns, you would probably fight to protect your country even if your country instigated the fight.
>External control would only goes so far with unwilling extremists.
And it didn't go very far. Right-wing extremists were still rampant afterwards.
>Just look at the Middle East.
Completely different situation. They didn't rebuild those countries with the same kind of money that they pushed into Germany.
Every thread is going to be like this all season long. If you want to re-litigate WWII there's a place for that. >>>/pol/
If you want to talk about the depictions of nations and troops and military hardware in the anime then this is the place for it. The fact of the matter is that the first episode was mainly a chase sequence with a bit of setting establishment.
We have our antagonists enemy forces chasing our small country princess, who is trying to seek military aid to protect her nation from invasion. We have the start of an invasion, and the secrets scene showing that the motivation is most likely going to be "everything belongs to the emperor". We have our magical witch and possible yuri.
We haven't seen a lot of the actual plot start to unfold, we haven't seen a lot of the characters and motivations of either side yet. Obviously there's been some familiar military hardware, but that doesn't mean anything until we get more context.
They did pretty well for a while. Considering germany at this point was like less than a century old, and had just recently been under the thumb of the rest of europe, most of whom had a few centuries' head start had large economic empires fueling them with a constant stream of natural resources. England at the start of WW2 was still in full "THE SUN NEVER SETS ON THE BRITISH EMPIRE" and by the end they were literally giving imperial territory away.
>you would probably fight
Sure, but that wouldn't make me good. That just makes me not a coward. People defending themselves is normal. It doesn't mean they're good or bad or anything.
Killing many to prevent the killing of many, many more is definitely justifiable.
If the US can justify two nukes, then the allies at large should definitely be able to justify whatever they got up to in europe.
>most of whom had a few centuries' head start had large economic empires
Yeah dudester, I mean shit it's not like Prussia was one of the Great Powers in Europe and the industrial revolution was dirven by the Brits and the Germans. Fucking Germans never existed before the actual German unification.
Oh yeah, that's why Germany has started yet another world war in the last 60 years, right?
>had just recently been under the thumb of the rest of europe, most of whom had a few centuries' head start had large economic empires fueling them with a constant stream of natural resources.
Not really, no.
Germany wasn't nearly as broken by WW1 as its biggest continental rival was: France. They had only lost soldiers. Their infrastructure and factories were all left intact. That's why France was so mad.
You are also pretending the German states suddenly appeared out of thin air. Just because they didn't have colonies doesn't mean they didn't exist. They were big and important before Germany was founded.
And England was largely irrelevant as a land army. All they had was ships. Which is precisely where Germany completely failed to do anything against them. The fact that they lost the air battle against them as well just goes to show that Germany wasn't very impressive in WW2.
Germanic states rise and fell with the tides. One moment it was the HRE, another it was Prussia.
They never lasted long nor accomplished much beyond having an oversized military spurred by fresh nationalism. I suppose that was true of the 2nd and 3rd Reichs, as well.
>It was not surrendering after starting a huge war. Just look what it got Japan.
Both Japan and Germany tried to get peace before but their efforts were stomped down because at that point the allies wanted an unconditional surrender.
>Just because they didn't have colonies doesn't mean they didn't exist.
>didn't have colonies
Not for Germany, no. However, take a look at the Middle East. The heavy anti-American sentiments there aren't for nothing. Decades of tearing down Middle Eastern states and propping up despotic regimes in the name of containing communism and securing oil had their toll.
I don't know about Germany but Japan did offer to surrender. Just not unconditionally.
After that it was pretty clear the nuking of Japan was more of a test than an actually necessary part of the war.
Unconditional surrender as the objective was interesting, but whether it was better or worse than alternatives I couldn't say. Hindsight and not being a leader of an Allied/Axis country being fed intel at the time spoils my judgment.
>than an actually necessary part of the war
Yes, just a test. I mean who wants to invade Japan, kill billions of Japs while taking insane casualties and see Soviets invade Japan from the North and have them actually all die because Japs are going to starve to death while being ready to throw it all towards the enemy. TOTALLY NOT NECESSARY
Really? Hess? So a guy that tries to secretly fly to Britain, to start peace negotiations without the approval of Hitler or any other major Nazi official, is then captured and jailed by the British, and then disavowed by Germany, is a legitimate attempt to surrender?
>Sora no Woto
Being allergic to slice of moeblob, I never watched it. The generic K-On designs didn't help either. If it's enough for you to give him the benefit of the doubt, I hope that I'm wrong and you'll enjoy it.
That was in 1941, man. They were talking about surrendering and damage to Germany as they got pushed back past their borders.
Peace in 1941 was no surrender. They were nowhere near pushed back.
Where can I read about this conditional surrender? All of my resources do not mention this. Only that they were negotiating with the soviets to get a better deal with the allies, while not knowing Stalin was just itching to grab Manchuria.
There's nothing to discuss yet. Now, if you want to talk about how fine Fine is, or how you want to fine Izetta's Izettas, we've got material.
Guilty Crown is still better than sora no woto even if contrarian fedora tippers pretend otherwise.
sora no woto was a major fuck up, you simply dont try to ride on k-on coattails with the real thing airing that year
There were no terms. In early 45' Japan tried to send envoys to the Soviets, so that the Soviets would act as intermediaries, but the ministers within the government never actually agreed on any terms or conditions. You can read the telegrams they sent here.
Lets also not forget that when the Emperor wanted to surrender the Army attempted to overthrow him in a coup, and the coup was attempted AFTER NAGASAKI WAS NUKED.
They nuked them, THEN accepted peace.
Best of both worlds, really.
Also the totality of Japan's surrender meant that yet another despotic imperialist state stuck in 19th century ways of thinking could be disassembled and forced-marched through modernity. A cataclysmic taste of the future was necessary to show the military leaders at the time that they could no longer cling to the past. I wouldn't want to be one of the people in a hospital bed as fallout exposure rots their body from within, but history showed the ends justified the means.
Yamato damashii. Japan strongk. Nukes cannot stop a properly oxygenated body.
I mean, to be fair, Yamato realized they would never win a war against America anyway, and hoped that pearl harbor and a string of early sea victories would prompt America to negotiate their trade embargoes.
Because it's true. Germans are evil monsters and murderers who need be tamed like wild beast in the cage. Fuck Germany from four directions and their fellows japanese and italians too.
>Nazis were the bad guys
When will this meme end?
>you don't commit atrocities during a war.
Every war comes with atrocities.
But victors don't usually get called out on it. America in particular is too powerful to get called out on anything that happens.
Godwin's law aside, what would've happened if the Nazis weren't actively persecuting minorities?
Would they still be "the bad guys", since history is written by the victors?
Yeah, I understand most of the nazi deeds are blown way out of proportion, whereas the atrocities done by the allies are usually forgotten (viz. Dresden, Holodomor)
>what would've happened if the Nazis weren't actively persecuting minorities?
It was German tradition to operate with an iron fist. If there was one partisan, they'd wipe out an entire village as punishment. The same strategy had already got them into trouble during WW1, where it painted them as the comically evil guys even without any genocide.
And of course, as you say, losers are bad guys.
So when will we get NotRussia ending up fucking their smile place up for the next 50 years when NotGermany gets defeated?
People haven't stopped calling america out for the past 70 years, anon. There's entire fields of western academic study dedicated to reinterpreting the entirety of western history, including that of america as "white people did everything wrong, remove white people"
This whole history is written by the victors thing is hogwash in modern times. Academic freedom being what it is, there's countless accounts of every facet of history from every angle, pandering to every agenda. America got to write a favourable history about as well as they got to create a democratic Vietnam.
Just look at WW1. Virtually nobody is taught about Germany;s involvement in WW1 unless they study it at a university level, at which point its just treated as yet another of the countless imperialistic wars of the preceding centuries. The interesting factors to both world wars weren't political, but technological, strategic and tactical. WW2 has the special angle that there's this hilariously over-the-top horror committed by one side, but without that it would've lacked any kind of narrative worth pushing, one way or the other.
>WW2 has the special angle that there's this hilariously over-the-top horror committed by one side
Except we're not really taught about said over-the-top horror, instead we're told to hate nazis.
>white people did everything wrong, remove white people
This is exaggerated. I don't deny that there are people like this in academic circles but they're far less prolific than you think.
Let's be honest, there was a lot of white supremacy whether covert or overt in America and the various European colonies against anyone who wasn't white (many who are considered white today). The vast majority of academics correctly identify it as a facet of the power structure present at that time and not that white people are inherently bad. It's only the real crackpots that view white people as evil and the root cause of everything bad.
Because let's be honest, if it was Africa or Asia or anyone else who achieved Europe's success they would have done the same thing as everyone else.
Really? My education about WW2 began with the holocaust, and stopped to bring up the holocaust every few minutes. Most of the non-holocaust factors were glazed over and the pacific theater wasn't even given so much as a mention or acknowledgement. It's just "Great Depression ->HITLER->Night of Long Knives->NAZISM->persecution of the jews ->Persecution of everyone else->final solution... oh by the way there was a war going on while some of this was happening and the good guys won"
I didn't get a more complete picture of World War 2 as a war until I took a class in 20th century history back in 2nd year of university. The public education system just doesn't really same to care about educating that aspect of history beyond "the moral of the story is that genocide is bad"
Where the fuck are you from? I went to school in California and there was just 1 chapter devoted to the holocaust, and about 3 devoted to the war itself when we did US history in my sophomore year, and world history as a freshman had literally a single blurb about it.
White supremacism is particularly bad because it murdered 6 millions in the 20th century and 100 millions in the 16th and 17th.
No other ethnocentrism has been more disastrous to humanity.
I've never met a self-proclaimed "Post-colonialist" who wasn't at the edge of their seat ready to spout "kill whitey" at every turn, and I've met a lot of them in my field. They are to history what tumblr is to gender, and every bit as obnoxious and delusional.
It's just a case where radicals insist on their legitimacy because the literature they revere doesn't seem radical if you cherrypick excerpts and read them out of context.
See, the very view that you can segregate the "kill count" of ethnicities is hypocritical. Every civilization and race has committed acts you could consider "disastrous to humanity" in the scope of the loss of life incurred. The fact that you arbitrarily collect some of it under an umbrella and call it evil because thousands of different european ethnicities were involved in activities that caused a loss of life, and therefore the scope of their collective crimes is greater than any other is absurd. Throwing euro races under the banner of "white people" is about as arbitrary as the borders of africa, and the fact that you dive into that freely to support your worldview shows that yours is no different than the 19th century anthropology that justified those atrocities. You just picked a different villain and drew your own set of arbitrary lines to justify it, because bigotry against european ancestry is academic vogue
>Where the fuck are you from?
He's probably from Germany. He's wrong insofar as German schools actually teach about WW2 in great detail, but it's just one semester in school, while the nazi atrocities come up as a topic every single year until graduation (excluding elementary school).
>Don't be dramatic, the people that hate the germans over nazism the most are the germans.
That's nonsense, the german people greatest shame is having lost that war, not nazism.
>about as arbitrary as the borders of africa,
I'm not disagreeing with you in general, but this is laughable.
Europe was always tied together, ever since the Romans. There was interaction going on from Ireland all the way to Russia. They were in some fashion one community.
The same cannot be said of Africa.
Nah, that war needed to be lost.
It's a shame about the first one though. Why did the Germans need to go with the Schlieffen plan? It was such a stupid plan too.
>no man, we're not hostile, we're just moving 1 million soldiers into your country
I got taught WWI in primary. Possibly Secondary, but I think Primary. Trench wars were ass, football between sides at Christmas, attrition with no real movement of the lines, crazy network of alliances pulling everyone in, etc.
That's incorrect. While there have been certain individuals who tried to unify Europe it was ultimately a futile attempt.
Europeans were at each other's throat for centuries with almost constant conflicts over this and that. Realistically, they were little different than the constant inter tribal warfare of Africa and the Native Americans.
You are missing the point.
They had cultural exchange. Eastern Europeans studied at English universities.
The countries may have been at war, but they largely shared one religion, looked towards Rome (and Constantinople) as the legendary powers and spoke Latin to each other.
This is true
Armor is the term used for tanks. In English, an armored division is as a division of tanks.
Yes it is, panzer is not the German word for big black cat. The word you are looking for is panther.
The great Empire of Germania dont need rely power on a szhit lesbian.
POWER OF ARYAN SCIENCE!
SIEG REICH BEAUTIFUL STUKAS.
The categorisation I made was a direct response to the person who started it. It's segregated according to his ethnocentric goggles. It doesn't reflect my view of humanity, obviousy. Also, while I agree with you that all humans committed atrocities, you seem to be eluding the point being discussed and the argument made. Just because all humans did bad things, that doesn't mean they were made in the name of the supremacy of their race. And the genocide the Native Americans stems from the idea that Europeans were a superior race that deserved to establish on that land even at the cost of the annihilation of other groups of humans, who wouldn't have had such a fate if they weren't considered as inferior. The umbrella was reclaimed by the apologists of colonialism, not moved around by me.
I'll leave you with some Voltaire quote :
>Their round eyes, their flattened nose, their lips which are always large, their differently shaped ears, the wool of their head, that very measure of their intelligence, place prodigious differences between them and the other species of men
>And one could say that if their intelligence is not of another species than ours, then it is greatly inferior. They are not capable of paying much attention; they mingle very little, and they do not appear to be made either for the advantages or the abuses of our philosophy.
>And it is a big question whether among them they are descendants of monkeys, or if monkeys come from them. Our wise men have said that man is the image of God: behold a pleasant image of the eternal Being with a flat black nose, with little or no intelligence! A time will come, without a doubt, when these animals will know how to cultivate the earth well, to embellish it with houses and gardens, and to know the routes of the stars. Time is a must, for everything.

>In a WW1 context or before you would have a point,
No, it's largely their own fault too (Fischer). That, or it's the fault of imperialism (Lenin), since Germany basically did the same thing every Great Powers did, just a little bit later and more autistic.
>when you're a pole and your intelligence tells you the german are making armored battle wagons and you think they mean these
I notice the people that say GC was good are the faggots that say you're not supposed to take anime seriously and the only value of anime is watching it while drunk, high, or for the lulz
>There's tonnes of anime where the Japanese Imperial allegory are the antagonists, It's actually super common within their own literature, they just don't come right out and say "this faction is us from WW2"
Such as? I only know Princess Mononoke and some random manga where Kyoto is ruled by insane Shinto priests or something.
Also, that yuri manga where the Emperah tried to cuck the two main girls but turns out he's a yurifag.
Your allegory was too broad. It can even be applied to America with that Avatar's film. It's the typical patronizing, sublimating the Other liberal bullshit. Distinctively Japanese ones would be like on the radar of nettouyo or something.
>However, take a look at the Middle East. The heavy anti-American sentiments there aren't for nothing. Decades of tearing down Middle Eastern states and propping up despotic regimes in the name of containing communism and securing oil had their toll.
It's not just anti-American, it's anti-West. The middle east got royally fucked by the British when they divided the whole thing up, and in the 50s British Petrol was abusing workers all over the place. ME countries told them to fuck off, fix their shit, or they start nationalizing the oil. BP said "do it you pussies", and when they actually did it, BP whined to Britain about how the FILTHY COMMIES ARE TAKING THE OIL FROM HONEST COMPANIES. Britain then complained to the US, and all sorts of political shit went down that culminated in all the regimes getting overthrown in the 60s and 70s by a generation of people who've lived their entire lives watching their country get fucked by the West.
>muh Westphalia was too soft
They were in massive denbts, and their resource-rich regions was annexed by France. They were in a leeching finance economy surrounded by international bankers (who were broke, too) where IMF and World Bank would look like a congregation of saints.
I bet you're French.
I can't be the only one a bit concerned that a major player in the largest war of all time is not allowed to mention it directly 70 years after the conclusion.
Why can't Japan just make an anime about WW2 with proper names and shit? Everyone else can, why can't they? Is something stopping them?

Also, they wanted to have made up countries while also following similar to WW2? They weren't all that imaginative so far but it's only the first episode.
It's funny homosexuality was pretty commonplace until the Christians started killing people who were anything along the lines of being abnormal even though Jesus specifically was trying to get people to understand he didn't give a shit about that, even going out of his way to physically defend prostitutes and other unwanted people and accepting them into his home.
But that's none of my business. There's definitely no signs of Jesus' original message of love, hope, and peace being corrupted by people who then went on to spread their warped view of the world using his own name. Not at all.
Why don't we just stop being dickheads and let them be. Also, now that diplomatic immunity was done away with so a few greedy 9/11 victim families could get some cash, the U.S. is in for the anal raping of all time. Just imagine all the fucking people and countries that we've pissed off this last century. Just to fucking start with, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That damage claims are going to take our already abysmal debt and send us straight to hell.
Oh god, are we in for getting fucked right in the ass for everything we've done throughout this countries history. Just this simple bill alone could easily destroy our country for good.
>That damage claims are going to take our already abysmal debt and send us straight to hell.
US is still fine in terms of debt. IIRC US net worth is still 3 times whatever debt they have, not great but still far better than most other countries.
I honestly don't know how so many people requesting "muh serious war drama with real countries" don't know or ignore Zipang.
Is it not right-wing enough for them or something?
I wanna say Pumpkin Scissors would be worth checking out. The manga, not the anime. Too bad scans died like a year-
>v.11 c.41 by Orca Ninjas Killer Whale Squad (28d ago)
Why. There's absolutely no reason why a WWII piece done in video shouldn't be a big budget film production in English. Why would you want it in Japanese and animated?
>using anime about vampires to prove a point
I have some bad news for you mate.
Germans are as evil as the British and Russian's were. Following orders doesn't make you more of a monster than your foe.
