Military-based anime is another category that gets us all fired up to binge-watch the whole season at once. In several militaries or war-based anime, we have seen war evolving where new and advanced technologies are being experienced. In a way, we can say the mechanics of battle has changed over time but the concept behind war still remains the same which is to kill your opponent before he kills you.

Tanks, spacecraft, and gas-powered mobility gear are all used by the armed forces portrayed in these anime. They also include a character who believes in playing mind games with the opponent in the war and is weak at physical activities.
