Synopsis

October 1941, as the second World War threatens to destroy the civilized world, an unforeseen complication suddenly occurs. An alien invasion! Despite the sudden appearance of these extraterrestrial aggressors, the Axis and Allies continue their destructive conflict. Only the Kishin Corps and their giant Geo-Armor Robots (a.k.a.: Kishin), developed from a captured alien robot soldier, stand between the Earth and total annihilation!

A teenager, named Taishi, suddenly finds himself at the center of a struggle over a mysterious black attaché case entrusted to him by his father, Professor Tokamura. The case contains the controlling mechanism for one of the giant Geo-Armor Robots, and the Japanese Kanto Army, the alien invaders, and the Kishin Corps all want to recover the device! Between the spies, the armies, the aliens, and the Giant Robots, Taishi is in for an epic adventure—if he can survive it!

This is an odd sort of an OVA. For starters, it has the most hilariously, tastelessly historically inaccurate alternate history plot you could imagine, but plays it so tongue-in-cheek you can't help but be swept along in the stupidity.

Essentially, aliens invade at the height of WW2, and it falls to a Japanese/German/American super robot team to fight them. It's led by Eva Braun and Albert Einstein.

Let that sink in. One of the main characters of this OVA is EVA BRAUN. Who built a super robot to fight aliens WITH THE HELP OF THE AMERICANS.

To be honest, this makes Hellboy, Wolfenstein and Captain America seem like read more

Anime: Giant Robo the Animation: Chikyuu ga Seishi Suru Hi
Similar Tezuka-like character designs; with a boy finding himself while fighting alongside super cool side characters. Both also have giant lumbering robo's.

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
Alternative world-setting, mecha, crazy scientists, Japanese rebels and Norio Wakamoto as the bad guy (As a side note, one of the minor characters in Kishin Corps even looked like Nunally. Think about that !)
