An alternate World War II history even more insidious than Deep Blue Fleet, suggesting that Japan only invaded Manchuria to protect the world from aliens!
Aliens are attacking Earth, and Japanese scientists have reverse-engineered some of the captured technology to create the Kishin Corps, a group of giant robots who travel in trains, start with hand cranks, and then pummel the opposition into submission-the opposition being the aliens, and those misguided Japanese who have sided with the Nazis.
The story is pure 1940s matinee adventure, with wonderful character stereotypes-the good woman, the femme fatale, the goofy scientist, the dashing flying ace, the dastardly general, and his obedient minions. Real people crop up, or rather have their names borrowed; Eva Braun is included as a top scientist prepared to do anything in the pursuit of knowledge, though in this reality she has an angelic twin sister, Maria. Superb robot action spread throughout an excellent story and some particularly great chase sequences make up for pacing that is at times painfully slow. One of several retro anime that try to rewrite the lead-up to Pearl Harbor, to be filed with Sakura Wars and Virgin Fleet-doubtless intended as innocent hokum, but somehow distasteful in a country that still avoids telling its schoolchildren the truth about the war, however entertaining the fictions.
