And when I say that, I don't just mean the mecha anime series alone, but also any military anime ever created, like Full Metal Alchemist, Attack on Titan, and Ghost in the Shell.

In my case, it's Code Geass, if only for all of the Chess metaphors spread throughout it to reinforce its war drama elements.

Not a fan of military anime, but Code Geass is my favorite anything ever. ... I like it for the pretty boys. And character drama.

..... I also really like Valvrave, but again, for the characters. Most people hate it, but I just find the characters so charming. Especially X-eins <3 he's like top-10-favorite-characters-ever for me.

Since Code Geass, Alderamin, and FMA:B have already been said, I'll just add The Heroic Legend of Arslan.



Also some Gundam series. 00, Zeta, and Unicorn being the best ones.

Gundam SEED and Destiny.

While many may find SEED and Destiny bad, I think it really explores many concepts such as war, idealism, racism, collectivism, authoritarianism etc

I also find it interesting to see how characters and their relationships are affected by war and how they cope with it

Adding a new anime to the fray I would say Valkyria Chronicles Anime adaptation was well done if I had a say; although I loved Code Geass lots too!

For me has to be Kingdom. The generals are legends and the strategy each battle has is pretty interesting.
