!!This series provides examples of:

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Buddhist ki-and-bead shooting monks ala [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Donovan]] vs nazi-summoning demons, demon-summoning nazis, demonic nazis, cybernetic demonic nazis with [[GatlingGood Gatling arms]], and a bishounen vampire nazi robot [[AssPull who isn't even aware he's a robot]]. And it's done in an incredibly serious and dramatic fashion. Yes, really. There's absolutely no comedic value behind any of it as opposed to some of the lunacy in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. And at one point the nazis went to war with one of the demon lords. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome And won!]]
