-->''Kick Start, Fighter Launch! throttle set to full! Speedking, Race to win! Afterburners roaring! Ghost-like counterstrike takes them by surprise! Score 307, Israelis rule the Heavens!'' --The dragoon, Geno Raithin, singing "Counterstrike" by Sabaton

Kriegsmaiden is an anime-esque writing universe formed by the conglomeration of multiple writers and their styles.
The general 'focus' tends to vary by writer, but all of the work takes place in the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies, in which a powerful alien race from what may well be a different universe, known as the [[Creator/HPLovecraft Mythos]], has come and is, for yet unknown reasons, is trying to wipe out all life in these two galaxies.
Most planets go about unknowing of the powerful threat hanging over their heads, where as others are essentially the front lines against these dangerous beings. And there's still the threats already among them to deal with.
The 'Modern Era' is 2050 Anno Domoni of the Earth callendar, right in the middle of the 'War of the Magi', AKA the Magic War. While this is far from the 'End' of the Kriegsmaiden world, as all in all it's spanning two galaxies, which is a LOT bigger than you think.

!!This show provides examples of:
* BilingualBonus: Kriegsmaiden=War Woman
* {{BFG}}: Many gun-using Kriegsmaiden tend to use really big guns, such as Julia Makai's Helbore Rifle.[[spoiler: A modified Lahti L-39 Anti TANK Rifle that operates much like a small Hellbore Anti SPACESHIP Cannon!]]
* {{BFS}}: The Claymore-class battleships...are Spaceships...designed to both look like, and WORK like swords bigger than most Skyscrapers!
* CatGirl: The Taoka species of Kriegsmaiden are all distinctly cat-like in appearance and mannerisms.
* {{Deconstruction}}: Mainly of many different classic anime scenarios, though at the same time many stories simultaneously [[{{Reconstruction}} reconstructed]].
* HotBlooded: Zack BLEEDS FIRE.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: Zack has thousands of Kriegsmaiden's children.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: EVERY Kriegsmaiden, most of the high-class Kriegsmaestros, the [[KillerRobot Metalfiends]], the Mythos, the Goddesses, a vast majority of Spellcasters, etc,etc
* PoweredArmor: A variety of kinds, including the 'Berzerker' armor, powered by the wearer's [[UnstoppableRage anger]].
* RatedMForManly: Technically almost every male KriegsMaestro and a surprising number of KriegsMaiden also fit this trope.
* SavedfromDevelopmentHell: Was in the works for FOUR YEARS! It was only due to a metric crapton of help from members of [[Pokegirls]] community that it got as far as it did, and a slip of the fingers it was published at all!
* TestosteronePoisoning: Zack
* {{Understatement}}: Considering the general theme of the world, kind of expected.
* UnwantedHarem: As Kriegsmaestros are selected, not by choice or ability, but by genetics...having a Squad of Kriegsmaiden isn't always a desired occurrence, especially since commanding a team of Kriegsmaiden[the fore-mentioned ''Squad''] means that you're a soldier and are about to be rung through bootcamp and have to take on what's essentially [[EldritchAbomination Lovecraftian Monstrosities]] who simply want you dead for no reason they're willing to give.
* WordOfGod: Is available upon request, as the author of the novel, now available for purchase, is a [[OneOfUs member of TV Tropes]]. Specifically, Troper 'Hotaru'.
