Seems like it'll be a decent anime this season.

Graphics are really nice, with loads of historical airplanes to go around.

Main characters fly Ki-43 Hayabusa, with various others for side characters and antagonists.

N1K Shiden being chased by a hostile A6M Reisen.

Nose of one of the Ki-43 Hayabusa.

Yes, I figured that translating the title to english might be preferable for some.

Apparently, it is also called "The Magnificent Kotobuki" on some sites.

great shots!
There is an art to flying, or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. ... Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, that presents the difficulties (Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

Oh, 'Oscar' was the allied code name for the Ki-43 Hayabusa.  Just like 'Tony' for the Ki-61 Hien.

Why anyone would still use those is beyond me.

The Japanese nicknames are far more elegant.

Of course, the US names sometimes are even insulting.

Insulting ?? How ?

The Allies used male and female first names for fighters and bombers respectively and tree names for trainers ... where is that insulting ?

 

The Japanese names are of course more elegant, but it was more practical for the military to talk about a 'Frank' than about 'Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate' ...

Or Type 4 Army Fighter. :B Or 19-Shi... :sceptic:

Still, limiting it to either Ki-84 or Hayate would be fine imo.

 

Speaking of Hayate, they had some in last sunday's episode, iirc.

Initially mistaken for the Type 2 Army Fighter (Ki-44) Shouki.

I was not very accurate. There are some funny names, especially in the Cold war. Now only few Russian's come to my mind:

Oh, for Soviet planes they used a different method ; F for fighters, B for bombers.

 

Fagot is OK, is a musical instrument (?) ; not [edited] :teethhappy: 

 

Can't find Bastard, the Yak-28 was named Brassard (what ever that is).
