Looking for military anime, spec. w/ Jets

Postby Wolfy2hk » Fri Jul 15, 2011 11:04 pm

Looking for military anime with airplanes, such as Macross, but more realistic and less space opera.

The Birds are using humanity in order to throw something terrifying at this green pig. And then what happens to us all later, that’s simply not important to them…

Just re-watching Cowboy Bebop clip-hunting and there are several episodes with dog-fights with very futuristic military vehicles, some space shuttle scenes, and The Movie has a range of propeller airplanes - even bi-wings. No jets there though - unless you count Jet himself. :)

Full Metal Panic should suit your needs. Not too much jets, but there are some.

*need EDIT button*

Correction - one or two from The Movie do appear to be jets, and one is a Tri-wing.

I'd say area 88 is your best bet. Specifically the 80's ova. I haven't seen all or the 2004 series so i can't tell you if it's as good but I'd say they're both worth a viewing.

Area 88 and Yukikaze looks promising, also found two more myself called Sky Crawlers and 801 airbats. When I said Macross I meant I knew all the series :nono: , thanks for the help guys, I'll look into Cowboy Bebop but I was primarily looking for a series focused on air combat.

Last Exile

DEFINITELY NOT ONE OF MY TOP 10 ANIMES, but the first episode is a huge arial battle so you won't have to follow it for long...(trust me, you WILL get confused, irritated and disappointed)
Almost as hard as fighting a Holy Paladin.

Which series would you be talking about?, I hope not Macross, However I haven't seen any of the other series so if it's a stinker I might not buy it.

He's talking about Last Exile.

As a cranky aside, you'd think someone who's so invested in how to pronounce "Eureka Seven" would know that the plural of "anime" is also "anime."

Never mind that; somebody answer why there would be a military anime about an American football team.

You watch anime and can ask 'why'? As if it is supposed to always make sense?? :) :)
