TTT: Top Ten Tuesday-Thank You For Your Service

I know, I know. Veteran’s Day in the U.S. was on Sunday and Veteran’s Day Observed was yesterday, but whose to say we can’t celebrate a little while longer? We definitely have to show some love and appreciation to all those brave men and women who have served our country. Although one specific man couldn’t quite show his gratitude because it was raining. *cough cheeto face cough* Yup, you heard that right my pandas. Someone was being a big ol’ baby because of some light rain. *insert palm face emoji here*

None the less! This girl right here is going to show her gratitude by making this week’s Top Ten Tuesday all about military based anime. Today is all about war strategies, violence, gore, death, weapons and even one bad ass loli (you know who I’m talking about) 😉 Maybe this list will inspire you all to watch some more action/military anime in the future! This genre isn’t usually my go-to, but there are some hidden gems that pop up once and awhile. Also some of these anime series are low-key underrated in my opinion. I highly suggest checking any of these out if you get the chance!


1. G.A.T.E

^Let’s admit it….we all watched this anime for Rory (and maybe Princess Pina as well).


2. Girls’ Last Tour

^While this anime mainly revolves around what happens after war, it is still freaking adorable yet oddly dark at the same time.


3. Schwarzemarken

^I’m telling ya…if you want to see some fucked up shit happen Schwarzemarken is the one.


4. Izetta the Last Witch

^Because sometimes you need a little magic with your military.


5. Violet Evergarden

^Oh you know…just a little something something to make you bawl your eyes out.


6. Attack on Titan

^Attack on Titan is a give in at this point lololz


7. Otome Youkai Zakuro

^A little bit more on the fluffy side of things but still military based none the less!


8. Joker Game

^It’s spy versus spy in this free for all.


9. Genocidal Organ

^I encourage everyone to watch all of the Project Itoh movies. Genocidal Organ presents complex ideologies and is an amazing blend of the Sci-Fi and military genre.


10. Youjo Senki (Saga of Tanya the Evil)

^Today’s list wouldn’t be complete without our enraged psycho loli Tanya 😀


Honorable Mentions:
Code Geass
Full Metal Panic
Girls und Panzer
Owari no Seraph
Pumpkin Scissors
Valkyria Chronicles
Mobile Suit Gundam
Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse
Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online


And there you have it folks! We’ve got a little something for everyone on this list. I also enjoy a series that mixes in military anime with another genre such as romance, sci-fi, or slice-of-life. That way you aren’t watching a story about war for a gazillion hours being bored to death. What are some of your favorite military based anime? Did any of them make the list? If you don’t watch that much military based anime which shows caught your interest? Let me know all of your thoughts and comments down below! Thank you for joining me today. It’s always a pleasure to have you guys ❤

  1. I’m so glad you included Tanya! She is my all time favorite war loli!

    Izetta the Last Witch is one of those underappreciated works that really ought to be more adored. Self sacrifice, shoujo ai with a touch of yuri and an ending to make you weep.

  2. Surprised not to see Strike Witches mentioned here at all. Great series, worth checking out if you haven’t seen it yet. There is more coming in the next few years too, which is awesome.

    And while I’m at it, Kantai Collection is also missing from the list. Another military themed show that was pretty decent, even for someone who has never played thr game before.

  3. Gate, Izetta, AND Tanya? Plus AOT and Violet Evergarden?

    Dang. I’m genetically incapable of not liking this list!

    Then I noticed Muv Luv Alternative and Pumpkin Scissors in the honorable mentions.

    Yeah, this is a good list!
