The anime is entirely a series of in-universe propaganda films put out by the military to promote its public image and vilify the moribund aristocracy.
The unit's name was originally Jackknife, not Pumpkin Scissors.
The Weapons Research Division is the Pumpkin Scissors version of the nameless company for which Dilbert works"Miraculous burn cream? It'll never sell. Let's make a supersoldier."
The Invisible Nine, despite all the supersoldiers, was a massive failure
The Lanterns that 901-ATT used work by feeding off of energy from the user's soulMaybe the energy is what normally controls human emotions. When the energy is used for something else, the subject becomes completely emotionless.
The world of Pumpkin Scissors takes place on another continent of the same world as Fullmetal AlchemistNot much to explain here.
To go with the above, Alice is related to the Armstrongs
Like the 2003 anime version, Pumpkin Scissors has alternate dimensions.
The distribution of advanced technology is like in Fringe.
