I’ve recently got around to watching High School Fleet and I love these types of Anime, but I came to realize something’s missing. We’ve warships like the fore mentioned HSF and tanks like Girls Und Panzer. So why is there no warplane/aircraft anime? How many of you would be excited to see an Anime featuring WW2 era planes? Fighters like the German Foche-Wulf-190, American P-51 Mustang, Italian Macchi C.205, British Supermarine Spitfire and Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero would represent each school. There would of course be war games featuring events like dogfighting and bomber escorts. They’d be shooting each other with paint rounds/bombs naturally, maybe have smoke generators simulating when they get downed. Something to think about.

Well there is Strike Witches/Brave Witches, although the characters are based off flying aces.

While it isn't girls representing specific historical aircraft, there is a series called Strike Witches with girls that essentially wear planes on their legs while they dogfight.

There's also Henkei Shoujo which has a girl who turns into a fighter jet.

I suspect girls dressed as airplanes wouldnt be cute enough so nobody would bother.

Doesn’t really count as it’s not in the style of HSF or GUP. Strike Witches is just a pantsu montage essentially. Total fan service without much substance.

Probably just a matter of time.

I think the ship-girl genre took off recently from the success of the mobile game kan-kolle, Kantai Collection, but I could be mistaken. There are booms and busts of similar themes.

You mean like Shidenkai no Maki?

Too bad it's just a manga at the moment.

I found Strike Witches to have way more substance then say Kancolle. To dismiss it as just a fan service show is very shallow thinking

Have you really even watched it? Only watched season 1, but you can’t go 5 minutes without panties being shoved in your face. Tell me that isn’t fan service.

I never said there wasn't fan service I said just dismissing it as just fan service is just silly as it is much better written then HSF and on par with GuP if not a slightly better story

Idk about anything past season 1, but it wasn’t very memorable. What was memorable was how forceful and shameless it was at throwing panty shots in my face to the point I became disgusted with it. I personally don’t mind a little fan service in anime, but Strike Witches went waaaayyy overboard with it. If you like that stuff I won’t judge, it’s just not my cup of tea.

I guess we have to agree to disagree on this

BTW it's the P-51 not the P-41
