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. :excited: I hope no one is surprised I like this sort of stuff. If you like this sort of stuff, you should check them out. :thumbsup:;)

Now all we need is a new anime with 4th and 5th generation fighter jets. :iconplanningplz:
  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: "Hall of Fame" by Script
  • Reading: For Your Eyes Only
  • Watching: Upotte!
  • Playing: Star Trek Tactics
  • Eating: Brocolli
  • Drinking: Water

Upotte isn't just schoolgirls with rifles; the girls are the rifles! :D

As indicated by my reply to this identical comment upthread, I know this. I said girls and rifles for the sake of brevity.
Just wanted to make sure you were aware of the extended coolness feature. B-) (Cool)  It is a mighty trinity of military otaku anime, is it not?

There's all sorts of manga, semi-official doujin and fan-project offshoots of Strike Witches, including one set in 1991, the "Gulf Neuroi War".

"Gulf Neuroi War".

Haven't seen Uppote but I did watch SW and GuP. Liked them but they're not really my favourites. Can't take out my head that putting little girls into rather adult situations is not.... fitting.

But hey, it's the anime world so why not? :P
No love for the new Space Battleship Yamato?

Definite love to 2199. But that came out last year. The anime on this list are all new, at least to me.

And while Yamato 2199 is near and dear to my heart, I'm glad to see anime that aren't revisitations of old classics. So much of our entertainment these days, from both sides of the ocean, are derivative of what has come before. Yamato 2199 stands heads and shoulders above the pack without a doubt, but I have to give praise to new ideas. (Even if it's the same new idea done three times. ^^;)
Yeah, I'll give you that.

In Upotte, the girls ARE the assault rifles.
