OBSCURE O.V.A., *Kishin Corps
Set in an alternate WWII, the Allied Forces not only have to deal with the Nazis, but alien invaders too. Germany and Japan are attempting to possess most of the alien tech they can find to win the war, while a special group of freedom fighters called the Kishin Corps use giant robots to repel the united threat of the Axis powers and the aliens.
Also known as Geo-Armor, this OVA series had some impressive mecha designs, and a great retro-future look. Director, Kazunori Mizuno(of Bleach fame), did a very professional job with the approach with this steampunk mixing of a WWII intrigue and sci-fi giant robots.
