Feels like a ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series animated by the same guys as ''Anime/{{Vandread}}'' or ''Anime/SoukouNoSTRAIN'', with an intriguing and heartrending story spiced with eye-catching battle scenes. There is a powerful social message folded into this vividly animated seinen action series, made even more shocking by its reality. There's the main conflict of humanity trying to earn its right to survive against the rise of its "evolution," the profanely powerful Amalgams, which is impressive enough in its execution to stand alone. Then, entwined within the personal stories of the characters is a dramatic exploration of the kind of elitist, anti-immigrant, xenophobic oppression [[TruthInTelevision you KNOW happens in real life,]] which adds an entirely new depth and impact to the work.

Look TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. When a violent, monstrous cyborg runs loose on a motorcycle racing track in a German-speaking city, hero champion Gerd Frentzen is crippled, seemingly for life. But he gets better with the help of a mysterious woman, reviving as a super-powered cyborg himself. After the paparazzi catch him turning Demoniacs (the afore-mentioned monstrous cyborgs) into properly pwned ashes, the media hails him as [[MessianicArchetype the Messiah.]] However, there is more to his miraculous comeback than meets the eye, and he's not the only super-cyborg on the block...hell, he's not even one of the strongest, [[DecoyProtagonist because this show is not about him...]]

* GratuitousGerman: "Amalgam" is a modern (if technical) German word, too. "Blassreiter" does translate to "Pale Rider", more or less, but completely lacks the badass connotations of the latter.
