Any recommendations for military fantasy anime? Enjoyed original series of berserker but not so much the newer ones. Just finished watching record of grandest war on Netflix and didn't mind some of the military aspects of it.

Basically looking for the malazan of anime of such a thing exists?


Attack on Titan, Saga of Tanya the Evil, Alderamin on the Sky and Izetta; The Last Witch would be my go-to recs.

I was kinda disappointed in the ending for O Maidens. A lot of build up from last episode just kind of fizzled out with a few plot threads left too ambiguous but the overall story wrapped up too tightly to make a second season easy.

Motherfuck...!!!!!!!°°°°

Was SO looking forward to waking up in AM and having the next MSG Origin Ep but for some reason they(TOON) seem to be having some dumb Dragon Ball pos marathon fucking up my weekly fix. Damn man this sucks. This show is awesome. Crazy ass naval fleet in space action eye candy giving me a hard on been playing out over the past 4 weeks and I want to keep going! Fuck a Dragon Ball up its inflation hole°°°

Think this is my favorite MSG Iíve seen yet.

If by military you're looking for warfare, strategy and tactics porn, most of the above won't really fill that. Keep in mind the only malazan esque thing I can think of is Legend of the Galactic Heroes though it is a space opera.(The original, fuck the remake)

Alderamin is decent but id reccomend it only after you've already sampled some better low hanging fruits.

The Legend of Arslan I think is the best one to come out in recent years.

Legend of the Legendary heroes: Pretty cool if you like fantasy anime. It does unfortunately have one of those read the manga episodes but it was a good watch for what it was.

Once you've finished those 3 you can also take a glance at Altair. I enjoyed it but the pacing was REALLY rushed towards the end. Altair is available on prime.

Aside from that Anime doesn't have much within this sub genre, kinda niche. Most military anime trends towards sci-fi or there's also the occasional historical anime where mileage varies.

On the subject of GalHer, series two dropped out of nowhere.

Black Fox preview episode was interesting.

D'rek may be interested to hear if she hasn't already that a Shirobako movie is on the way...

:apt: :apt: :apt:

Re: LotGH: Yup i saw that on my crunchyroll app and im like what???? Still trash as they condensed an epic fight into a less than a single episode. I really would like to know what the hell this adaptation team is thinking. The director of the show is completely incompetent.

On the subject of D'rek, she became an anime. Isekai'd Into A World Without Ready Availability of Books, I Go on a Quest to Create All The Books. Ep1 was pretty ok.

Finished Yu-No. The ending was... messy, to say the least. Shame, because the first portion of it was really enjoyable.

Two more generic pics - a harem (of sorts) where the MC likes two girls who are both in love with his best friend, and the plain librarian is in love with him. First episode seemed passably fun.

Isekai madness - Prodigies. Oh god, where to fucking start here. Here are seven 17 year olds. They are also the world's best doctor, swordswoman, journalist, engineer, CEO, magician and prime minister respectively, whilst also being in high school. It's everything that's wrong with the isekai genre but I can't stop myself. I can't tell if it's meant to be a deconstructing pisstake like Okaa-san Online was, or if it's actually serious about itself.

Kingdom is probably the closest to Malazan, AFAIK, though some people say the anime is a terrible adaptation of the manga. I've not seen/read either so I don't really know. Seconding LP's recco of Legend of Arslan, though, as it does have some of the same feel - it's not a world-spanning character-driven epic like Malazan, but it does have plenty of twists and clever battles.

I love it, it's super cute and comfy. (Looks like the official english title is the less awkward Ascendance of a Bookworm)

Saw the trailer a little while back. The animation looked ugly to me, and the plot didn't sound very interesting. Also it's made in the U.S., so is this even the right thread for that?

I'm always pretty wary of "Isekai but there's a twist" shows, but I just checked out Kemono Michi / Rise Up and it is utterly bananas in a good way. The first 10 minutes is a pro wrestler who wants to open a pet store getting transported to a fantasy world where he immediately suplexes the resident princess for daring to suggest he should harm demon animals to save the kingdom, and then he goes on the run from the castle guards in minimal clothing. It's definitely stupid but juuust self-aware enough that I found it hilarious.

Motherfuckwaddamn! I guess that Ep 13 of MSG Origin was the last of the show.. :( I could have sworn it was 7 hour long eps divided in half. That really was a fantastic watch over these past 14 weeks(they took one off) and Iím extremely disappointed not getting an episode tonight when I was fully expecting to. By far my favorite MSG of the few Iíve seen.

You're right, looks like the 2019 series was only 13 episodes. Good thing there's a bajillion previous gundam series you can still check out?

Iím rewatching Unicorn very slowly. Have been hoping Netflix would put up some of the others. Iím sure there are a lot of them out there yeah. I watched all of 00 S1&2 WAYYYY back in the day when SciFi(now SyFy) did this cool AniMonday event which iirc featured an hour of cartoons. I was exposed to MSG, Gurren Laggan and Monster over AniMondays lifetime. I canít remember if I ever finished SEED but if I didnít came really close to the end. Totally want to do Iron Orphan(?) but TOON has only shown S2 that I know of which I dvred but the fucker fried on me and I only managed to get to around Ep 5-6 of S1 but I was totally put off cause I had to do that on my phone.

Yeah though I hope they put up more then just Unicorn! Maybe if more people give it a thumbs up on ratings they will?

Maybe! Though Netflix doesn't seem as interested in building up a backlog of past series as other platforms.

Instantly added to my list, as I love suplexes.

Feels like kind of a slow season overall...
