I'll have to check out these suggestions. I didn't know that Valkyria Chronicles was even an anime. I thought it was just a game. As for fanservice type stuff, I don't really care either way if it is present or not as long is there is a good story.

Valkyria chroncles, grave of the fireflies and sky crawlers is probably the closest you'll get.

Also that Hetalia show maybe? I could never follow it but some seems to be WW2 related. And there is the Manga Adolf, set in 1930's Berlin. And Hellsing, if you don't mind Nazi vampires.

I can see why they shy away from the topic, some of the atrocities they commited shocked even the nazis. That takes some doing.

Although Germany seems to make a fair amount of WW2 related shows. Generation War is a recent one that springs to mind that tries to tackle the nazi atrocities on the Eastern front. I wonder why Germany seems more comfortable confronting it's dark past than Japan is.

So, a while back I finished Girls und Panzer and all of its OVA's (which I loved!) and I am currently watching KanColle and while these two great animes are not set in WW2, they use WW2 weaponry/vehicles. All we are missing now is planes. We need an anime with high school girls that are piloting WW2 era planes in combat or competition. Anyhow, all of this got me thinking, are there any animes that take place in WW2 or in a time period/world with that era style weaponry and such?


You'll find a lot of depressing stuff because Japan lost the war.
