The series itself is about quartet of [[{{Bishonen}} incredibly handsome]] [[ProfessionalKiller professional assassins]] with very dark and angsty pasts, who fronted themselves as the clerks of a flower store. They were involved in an AncientConspiracy between the corrupt factions of a very rich family, and had to fight against a group of psychic-powered assassins even more unhinged than them.

After ''Glühen,'' the series continued with a new manga and artist. ''Weiß Side B'' lasted about thirty chapters before being CutShort. It remains to be seen if TakehitoKoyasu's project ''Velvet Under World,'' which features a lead character named AYA and several apparent other nods to ''Weiß Kreuz'' continuity, will be set in the same universe or if it will even [[DevelopmentHell make it off the ground]].

* LeeroyJenkins: Aya's response to running unexpectedly into [[PresidentEvil Reiji Takatori]]: attempt to jump on him, run after him screaming his name, then throw his sword at the helicopter he's leaving in. After takeoff.



** A baddy from the first episode also does this with an axe. In the English dub's outtakes, the character's voice actor made him say"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFKS4jI-GTM&t=0m49s I need to shave my tongue,"]] as he did so.

''Weiss Kreuz'' is the brain child of veteran voice actor Creator/TakehitoKoyasu (''Manga/AngelSanctuary'', ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'', etc.), which was originally conceived as a star vehicle to allow himself and several other high-profile voice actors to show off their acting and singing talents. He sent his idea to a group of producers, who at first were wary of signing on for an obvious vanity project unless there was something of "substance" to get audiences to watch. Thus, they hired some writers to use Koyasu's ideas to create a series with MultipleDemographicAppeal, which included hiring a character designer to create some rather [[HoYay sexually dubious]] promotional illustrations (in other words, action and intrigue for the boys, and plenty of {{Bishonen}} [[{{fanservice}} eye candy]] for the girls).

To the surprise of just about everyone but Koyasu, ''WeissKreuz'' was a success. Everybody won: he was able to demonstrate his dramatic capacity and win some credibility, the female public across the world [[{{Squee}} drooled]], and the executives made an obscene amount of money.

Weiß Kreuz is a multimedia franchise, ranging from radio drama (as it was initially conceived by a bunch of [[NamesToKnowInAnime seiyuu]]), to anime series, [=OVAs=], light novels and manga. The seiyuu themselves formed a music band under the same name and released several singles, albums and concert tours. These releases may also be in anachronic order due to a couple of prequels, and certain releases centered around some characters' pasts (such as the Schwarz drama [=CDs=]).

Unfortunately, after the original TV series ended (and accompanying artbooks and {{OVA}}s were released), Kyoko Tsuchiya quit the project and denied the producers the right to continue using her designs. As the story was still unfinished and there was more money yet to be made, they were forced to continue with a new artist, who had to radically alter the character designs to avoid a lawsuit. The OddlyNamedSequel, ''WeissKreuz: Glühen'', didn't do as well financially, and [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks the new designs turned away many fans]].
