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.

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?? :) :)
