After discovering Utawarerumono yesterday, I've gotten into war/political anime. However, I haven't had much luck in finding more of this kind of anime. So, I was hoping some of you folks here could help me.

I'm looking for an anime series that is similar to Suikoden (a group/army going against a corrupt government). If it is unliscensed, it would be a great help if you could point me to where I could find it downloadable. If it's liscensed, I'll try looking towards buying it somewhere.

I would prefer English subs if at all possible, and a source other than YouTube would be great. And lastly, I would like to know if the series is finished or not, and how many episodes it consists of (or how many its at if it's still going).

I feel like that's a lot, so any bits of help would be greatly appreciated!

Try Soul Hunter, or Houshin Engi as it's known in Japan. It's based on an old Chinese story, just like Suikoden. The main characters themselves aren't directly involved in a war (not until later in the story, anyway), but there is a lot of political kind of stuff going on behind the scenes. Corrupt emperor, peasant revolts, betrayal...that kind of thing.
You should be able to find the discs for quite a low price. It's a 26-episode series, licensed by ADV, and it's been out for quite a while, now.

I'd also recommend Twelve Kingdoms (Juuni Koukki). I've only seen 10-12 episodes of it, so I can't say too much about it.

"Legend of Galactic Heroes" has plenty of politics, military strategies, and hundreds of interesting characters. Of course, it takes place in space and everything is high-tech and all that.

Is this what you're talking about? It's pretty cheap, and sounds interesting, so I'm definitely going to look into buying it.

Thanks so far everybody!

*leave things such as UMMM and urr or anything of that nature out of your posts; while you may speak like that, writing in that way just looks stupid, since it adds nothing to the discussion.*

Yep, that's it. Though, you'd probably save money buying the individual discs (each less than $3 on Amazon) than the box set.

Are there any special additions with the box set? Otherwise, I'll probably just buy the individual discs after all.

Not that I'm aware of. I'm pretty sure it's just all the individual discs in one box.

Well, I found it for $20 on eBay from a reliable seller, so I'm satisfied :D.

Any other suggestions? I would prefer a medieval age setting, but futuristic is fine if it's really good ;).

I'm watching Utawarerumono as well. And I love it! It starts out kind of slowly, but by the 4th episode, it gets very exciting and very, very Suikoden-like. I believe episodes 1-8 are out (or at least fan-subbed) at this point. I'm really looking forward to the next eppy!
