After experiences a seeming eternal dearth of watchable anime, I happened upon three GREAT shows.
Upotte Anime girls with assault rifles.
Girls und Panzer: Anime girls with tanks.
Strike Witches: Anime girls with WWII fighter planes for legs.
Yes, that's right, they all feature cute girls and assiduously detailed military equipment. I hope no one is surprised I like this sort of stuff. If you like this sort of stuff, you should check them out.
Now all we need is a new anime with 4th and 5th generation fighter jets.
