Anyone else watching this?
Way better than the light novel. The light novel reads as thickly as any of the Master and Commander books without any of the same romance or tact, mostly just whining about bureaucracy.
Greedy, impatient, reckless asshole who think he is still a middle age salaryman that he used to be before meeting X. He keep forgetting that he is a little girl now and little girl of her caliber usually treated as monster and not respect like he actually think. If he is a bit patient and pretend to be fragile little girl instead of warmonger devil spawn, he might get a comfy deskjob like he always wanted. But no.... He keep fucking overachieving all operation he involved and keep pretending to be warmongering patriot in order to get promotion without realizing that all those hardwork will only backfired him sooner or later.

I haven't watched it except for the short ONAs but I'm reading the LN. It seems nice to me, there're a lot of things about war, whether they're realistic or not that I don't know but for someone who's completely ignorant about strategies and related stuff, like me, it's still an enjoyable read.
there's just a shitposting thread of some butthurt faggot that's almost at bump limit too, forget it.
So what sort of clothes would she wear?
On the anime and manga board? Not likely.
The anime's okay but disappointing.
Stumbled on it, decided to give it a go. Surprisingly not the edgy cringefest I was expecting, in fact I kind of like it and want to see more. We'll see if it actually ends up being good though.
It reminds me of that greentext of Hitler as a little girl, where everything bad that happened was due to people misunderstanding her requests.
she owns many uniforms but sometimes can wear cute dresses too.
While he was not a sensible person to begin with, he is not actually an emotional psychopath either. He is just a pure utilitarian who will do anything to archive his goal. He clearly said in his internal monologue that he despise populism and ideologist who blindly follow the idea or leaders.
True, but he gets in the role completely, that's the kind of characters he had, adapting to the environment completely and meet the expectations of others to his best. About the monologue I really liked that part a lot, the author is a pretty based guy.
I thought it was going to be garbage in the same vein of shit as Kabanari, but I was proved wrong.
It's hard for that situation to not seem kind of contrived, but it actually all pretty much works.
I'm excited for more.
>This loli Hitler would look much better with a mustache.
Here you go.
I also tried some quick posterizing to unfuck the artifacting.
Why is a kid in the army ?
Why is she (?) part of a platoon and ruining its form ?
Why if she's got potential, isn't she studying as an officer and/or specialized force instead of being part of the grunts ?
Why am I overanalizing a japanese cartoon ?
>there's a cute girl
>must be surely moeshit
that's not how it works.
Magic exists in this world and useful mages on the battlefield are in incredibly short supply, she has incredible magic power due to reasons
That scene is from boot camp, she is actually alone or has very little backup as most help would get in her way or can't keep up with her or because of reasons
Her age, regardless of potential her superiors are hesitant to promote her to a senior officer without more actual combat experience and also due to reasons
You did not want to masturbate?
>our loli nonsense is ironic and therefore new and exicting!!
Magic and loli shit aside, the setting is interesting. But how is Tanya not the same garbage wish fullfillment as Kirito? MC with hax powers that shit on everyone around her. Enemies turn into Stormtroopers when they fight her. First ever combat she takes out a company of trained enemies on her own. It's complete nonsense.
What a fucking waste of a WWI anime.
>What a fucking waste of a WWI anime
After reading through the entire Web series, I realized that Tanya was betting her chances on an extremely flimsy tightrope.
Her patriotism towards the Reich did thinly veil her way of thought, but if it were recognized any earlier by her foes, including inside and out, she'd be dead before the war turned halfway.
Therefore I conclude that Tanya, although equipped with modern ideologies and vision of how the war was going to spread, and even end, only survived the entire ordeal to continue with her life with sheer luck.
Alternate world nazis fighting in a crusade-like war with the protagonist being a psychopatic japanese businessman reincarnated by an asshole God into the body of a little aryan kid with magic powers with absolutely no regards to anyone's life but her own.
Shit like this reminds me why I watch anime.
Delet this before I delet you,
I'm sorry Hans but your country's history is relegated to just being nazis.
I just realize this show is pretty much Voltaire's nightmare considering that Empire have HRE border and it's possibly that in this alternate timeline, Habsburg or Hohenstaufen or whoever it was get their shit and centralize the HRE.
Just rewatched EP1 and goddamn the sfx team are on fire, you could here the the gunshot traveling/echo/aftershot(forgot what's the term used for it). replying over and over, it's a soundporn.
Yes I am ...
Why am I liking this so much ? I don't even watch/read anime/manga that often ! I just came on /a/ to try to understand what's happening to me !
I ... I don't want to become a weeb like you guys ...
>hates happy endings and supremacy victories
>Tanya's sworn enemy's name is literally Mary Sue
I'm worried. Is she gonna be okay? I like my drug-pumped powertripping lolis, I wouldn't want them to die (again)!
>Could it be they weren’t the kind of people that I had initially thought them to be——the rationally minded, economical and business-oriented modern entrepreneurs that pursued mutually beneficial relationships?
Never change Tanya
they don't seem to study magic but rather just train to use it with mechanism in a specific manner, like to fly or the shield shit
It's not like they read book after book to learn fireball but rather go throught training to understand the basics of it
>She's a depressed psychopathic sarariman reborn, fully aware of it.
Magic attitude is probably not that uncommon and doesn't imply higher intellect.
And honestly where would you want your OP mages with explosive bullets, the front fucking up enemy lines and providing air support or in logistics doing something any other normal human could do ?
>10/10 moeblob all over you
>You have no D
>Not a punishment
I can see this only going two ways, either Tanya goes the way of Light and descends more and more into evil and darkness until she gets put down like a dog.
Or Being X turns out to be the Devil like MC first assumed and eventually the real God comes out and we get some kind of redemption story with Tanya becoming a true patriot.
Both are pretty clichèd but I wouldn't mind the second, first one is kinda meh.
Also notice the headset around neck.
I'm not sure that you can hear it midflight, but that probably explains how they communicate: throat microphone and headset under the coat.
Who needs D when you can get D anytime you want?
Well yeah, but what about giving D?
>Saga of Tanya the Call Girl
>Magical Whore Tanya
But if you were given the D, you can now give the D.
Its rather simple, "god" experiments with him.
If he gives him suffering hardship ect will he get faith?
So he is born as a orphan, in a poor orphanage, having to work and most time starve.
He has magic ability, that literally FORCES him into the army because all people/orphans with magic applitude getting conscripted! That means for "god" putting tanya into a "not so peacefull" enviorment.
Thats what she meant when she said she had no other choice when they asked her why she volunteered for the military.
By doing so she atleast got straight to officer training, rather then like Visha thrown on the field as a corporal.
It gets more wicked...
company=wings, the LN didn't say company but wing.
I thought the show is purely Yuri.
You are correct, but apparently Being X miscalculated the Tanya's caliber.
Considering how ex-Tanya was a pious believer of the Chicago School, he did not have nor make enough time for the fear and depression to sink into his mind. (Of which Being X intended to leverage to make him respect him again)
In a sense, Tanya taking a head start also meant that she was eager to "make her life better" under the rules of the Chicago School.
This, in return, resulted in not allowing nearly enough time for Being X's limitations to hurt her.
googled "WW2 laryngophone" and this came up
Maybe he's got 1" penis.
I mean something's got to be wrong with him.
Mage units are all managed under the Army (not the Navy, not the Air Force) so the most appropriate translation for the unit designations are Regiment/Battalion/Company/Platoon. Think attack heli units all under the US Army.
The LN translation used Air Force unit designations Wing/Squadron/Flight which is not the best choice.
The salaryman brought every thing on himself.
>meet God a moment before your death, telling you to git faith
>"I don't believe you exist, only desperate people need you."
>get upset when you get thrown in a wartorn shithole
I like how unaccomodating it is, like when you actually hear gunfire or artillery fire from up close because you're the one firing it, then you get used to it and start to like it from the side of firing.
Did you watch the second episode? He gets a COMBAT award every time he relies on magic, which just puts him in deeper shit and keeps him from an administrative position. Winning too much will also result in an increasing divergence from the history he knows, so he's losing cheat knowledge as well.
The world has already diverged wildly from ours though. They have magic ffs, using our history to predict events is pointless.
And couldn't he just not use his magic to its fullest capacity to avoid being too good?
Since Tanya now can materialize mana - can't they like find a material that conducts mana and build mana generators on electric generators principles?
>>get upset when you get thrown in a wartorn shithole
Tanya wasn't upset, at least not long enough.
She enrolled at the age of 9, that's how long she was upset.
Pretty quick to be fair.
That would go against her own believe.
She has a strong sense of duty because she gets paid for it why trying to be bad at it and hurting your own career.
In a sense the salaryman mentality doesnt work in the military so well. Atleast if you try to get a easy job in the rear.
Well I meant construct "electric generator" from mana conduit and have Tanya flood it with mana once then rotate it with water turbine or something.
Then you put in on tank, crew it with mages and have them spam draguslave at the battlefield since mana supply now relies on conventional fuel, not internal mage mana pool.

Yeah OP is just you, now you can get your ass back to Animesuki with your friend Zefyris and stop shilling this trash.
>he's so mad he posted it in two threads
Some retarded fanshills believe this trash is going to sell more than series like Konosuba.
This post is seriously underrated.
Nigga shitposters made this show their target since PV1.
They're whiny because female character designer is a woman and they don't like how she did female designs.
Just ignore bait and discuss relevant shit.
>MUH WOMYN STRONG!
Jesus christ, no wonder why these threads are the seasonal shitpost central of /a/.
Check normalfag reviews on ANN and MAL.
Konosuba threads are filled with fun, waifuwars and a few retards complaining for the horrible animation and character design.
Meanwhile Youjo senki threads are pure shitpost, faggots shilling hard as fuck and virgins masturbating to Tanya.
>seasonal shitpost central of /a/
>everything after 500 is Male Valkyrie shitposting
Maybe it's not specific anime at fault here?
>ad homs and strawmen are arguments to begin with
I've just assumed that moving mana conduit in mana field would induce mana current in said conduit.
Creating physical mana requires 4 core synchronization which is only happening because God decided it's time for a miracle and transformed the prototype into a holy relict.
And if the mage messes up synchronization everything explodes
Yes, but what if you build a generator from material capable of conducting mana and have Tanya flood it with mana once?
You can start spinning the generator and maybe you'll get mechanical energy transformed into mana.
Imagine the shit you could do with that.
Seeing how we have "engraved" bullets - maybe with unmanned "mana generators" spellcasting may also be automated.

I am autistic enough to assume it would work the same way electricity work.
tanya would be the qtest girl of the season if the upper lip was drawn in a different way
I mean, she doesn't need to be as it fits her character, but fish-chan is supposed to be the moebait and she just looks disturbing.
Would you complain if some studio re-introduce the noses back in character design too?
I read volume 1.
Tanya can discharge mana in environment since she have a storage of it thanks to Type 95.
I bet she can feed it to the tube made of mana conducting material too.
>Did you understand it?
Where does she store materialized mana?
What form does it take?
I don't think this was covered in LN.
>Tanya will introduce ethnic separation to camps
My grandpa died in Auschwitz when he fell from a guard tower, it was horrible.
WWI had no bad guys and was atrocious, it's that one part of history nobody likes to talk about because then "somebody" would have to take responsibility for bullying an entire country into committing genocide, it's much easier to assume satan reincarnated as Hitler and brainwashed everyone.
Youjo Shenki #2 translated.
>The Anime seems to have a much darker
Maybe that have something to do with manga being black & white?
Oh shit. Time to watch. Found it in the related videos.
So the war in the show takes place in the 1920s so that is too late for ww1 but too early for ww2,.
So this is a war that doesn't have a real world equivalent, It is a mix of ww1 and 2
so plz stop calling it ww1
I got about 2(?) minutes in
>this might be kind of neat
>all the soldiers either have terrified or total comic villain expressions, kinda stupid but all anime does this
>suddenly flying magic loli
Anime original, but it look like they use them like a hoverboard powered by the bags infront of them that conducts magic. Then they put magic on it to levitate and balace their whole body.
I want to feed Tanya my sausage
>She she's literally a loli Hitler?
Certainly not. And there's no nazi party or propaganda.
Tanya's edginess comes from a strong dislike of lazy people who refuse to work but still consume resources. That seems to be her pet peeve. Those people drag down a company. Those people drag down a country. Those people should be eliminated.
She looks like a boy in LN version.
>I wonder what she would think of /a/ or otaku in general.
Straight to the oven.
She was elected as one on the spot due to necessity, as far as we know she got officer training and was even overachieving.
A smaller body harder to hit combined with huge magic potential which made her much faster.
And her physical strength would be irrelevant considering she was using a gun.
>as far as we know she got officer training and was even overachieving.
She literally was fresh out of training which is basically worthless for actual combat as stated when Visha gets introduced.
>strong dislike of lazy people
>her mid-term goal is to secure a safe desk job
Her mindset is close edgy libertarians' which is "it's not my fault these people are failing". She wouldn't go out of her way to help someone but she wouldn't do it in order to punish someone if it's not her job either.
I can't enjoy gunshot sounds in most media specifically because they're not loud enough and nobody seems to give a shit about the noise.
I know that there's basically no way someone in Japan is going to know what a gun is supposed to sound like, it's just kind of disappointing.
Being reborn in a body of an orphan girl in a magical world of constant war with your adult male consciousness might do that to you. Just imagine not being able to say anything or walk for the first year.
You mean like in the USA where during the world war, being japanese made others suspicious and thus put into camps just in case of uprising or sabotage? Can't say it's right, but if notGermany invades notFrance, then it is natural to put a lot (though not all) of french ethnicity into camps due to controlling risk. Same with invading other areas. The most risky members get put into camps which is still better than summary shooting on the spot.
The weak should be culled.
They consume resources that the strong should have by right.
Those who have no benefit to society have no right to benefit from society.
>Her mindset is close edgy libertarians' which is "it's not my fault these people are failing".
The anti-racist activists would accuse her of racism though. They always say that due to discrimination, the other races need a lifetime of extra protection, extra wages, extra benefits, extra education offerings, extra food support, extra medical support, extra housing support in order to offset the disadvantages forced onto them by racism.
Tanya would be against that. She wants meritocracy.
Well if they were even somewhat realistic in their volume levels they would blow your speakers and induce hearing damage. The point of the show or any show for that matter isnt to be super realistic but realistic enough.
If fired my fair share of guns and have heard all kinds of sounds from them. Some of my favorite are .22 flying past from the range on the other side of the berm i was walking along. Sounds like angry mosquitos.
>this being a problem for /a/nons who're mostly bumming off anyway
It's not lying constantly/not talking for a year that's a problem. With adult drive you'd end up getting hold of coordination faster.
An average /a/non would have bigger problems.
>3. no anime
>2. no 4chan to shitpost
>1. people finding your computer and stuff on it
>0. hands too short to fap
Some people (including the author) live in racially homogenous countries and don't have to deal with that bullshit when discussing politics. The idea that libertarianism is racist probably wouldn't cross his mind.
Episode 1 didn't really sell me, but I liked the second a lot more, starts to show its hand a bit more in terms of doing something fun and a little different with the usual bullshit ultrapowered 'cool' MC shtick.
>when you tip your fedora very hard in front of god
Let me ask a more precise question.
Will Tanya ever fight such a desperate fight like in episode 2 when she's going full berserk trying to survive at all cost after receiving her special orb or will she just steamroll absolutely everyone?
Battlefield 1 puts WW1 full of dindus with automatic weapons and fictional weapons gets a free pass.
When the nips get in and make ww1 with a loli and some magic thrown in suddenly the same guy complains about it.
No. She's getting a battalion around her. And her special operations job won't let her be ambushed any time soon.
>steamroll absolutely everyone
No. Mages, like attack helis, are susceptible to proper AA fire and numerical superiority. In LN vol5 they are ambushed by two UK regiments and suffer huge casualties.
In the light novel, she thought she was going to die there, was giving herself motivational speechs in her head, went fuck it, overdosed herself on doping drugs/spells to improve her reaction time and explosive power.
In the anime, they changed it to her cleching her fist before doing the crazy face. Can't show a minor using drugs on TV.
Pity, I don't read the LN but that makes a lot more sense. But at the same time if she did say fuck it and inject herself with or ingest some glowing vial of liquid before going nuts the viewer would associate her insanity with the drug. The way it is now as a secondary I understand she's seriously off balance when things don't go according to plan.
Nah, Existence X (which is not God, since God doesn't exist) forced him on a world with huge advantage, so that he will always have to fight, and unless he uses the weapon X gave him, which corrodes his mind into that of a believer, he'll die.
in the manga, they carry proper radio equipment the size and style fitting for the era's tech.
Also wear proper helmets and flight goggles, underneath which you can occasionally spot what could be legit headsets. She did use them in the ep2 of anime for a while too.
I was quite disappointed that the anime just brushed all these details away. Yeah yeah, gotta make the MCs easily recognizable and such, but sometimes practical clothing and equipment is more sexy.
>God doesn't exist
Anon, just once could you stay on topic and keep your faggoty godless millenial ideals to yourself?
I can't wait for some Deus Vult next episode.
>Can someone explain the Kionai and certain corporation references?
It's actually "Kichigai", which is not allowed to be aired.
Kichigai means insane, lunatic, mad.
The group Tanya refers to is an existing religious corporation called Soka Gakkai.
>It annoys me how nips think everyone uses their "model x" naming convention for military equipment.
You do know most western forces DO use the model / mark XX naming scheme?
Also, Nips use Type-XX scheme.
Most people here in Japan categorize SGI as a cult, a fraud, and shitty excuse for a group that claim to be religious just to take advantage of tax cuts.
Does that apply to S*ientology?
Literally only bother with it because of Saori Hayami which is surprising because I don't recall ever giving a fuck about the voice actors before.
I wonder if this is common in Japan, it would explain why they get paid so much.
Manga still amazes me by various graphic styles and high quality of work. It has style, it has imagination put into it, very well-done.
You guys are waaaay too delusional about sales right now
You are forgetting that there won't be anything like the past two fight scenes in the next episodes, it's all world building and Tanya escalating
