On May 1, 1945 in Berlin, as the Red Army raises the Soviet flag over the Reichskanzlei, a group of Nazi officers conduct a ritual. For them, the slaughter in the city is nothing but the perfect ritual sacrifice in order to bring back the Order of the 13 Lances, a group of supermen whose coming would bring the world's destruction. Years later, no one knows if this group of officers succeeded, or whether they lived or died. Few know of their existence, and even those who knew began to pass away as the decades passed. Now in December in the present day in Suwahara City, Ren Fujii spends his days at the hospital. It has been two months since the incident that brought him to the hospital: a fight with his friend Shirou Yusa where they almost tried to kill each other. He tries to value what he has left to him, but every night he sees the same dream: a guillotine, murderers who hunt people, and the black clothed knights who pursue the murderers. He is desperate to return to his normal, everyday life, but even now he hears Shirou's words: "Everyone who remains in this city eventually loses their minds." (Source: ANN)

First episode is a total directorial mess. I had not a clue what was going on and the crowd at the premiere at AWA laughed when it ended


Suddenly….Nazis. Nazis everywhere.


The main TV series is nowhere near as incoherent as the prologue but that doesn’t mean much. It’s still every bit as edgy and overdramatic.


Awful waste of time. Don’t bother with it. Starts out as a cool supernatural Nazi thing, turns into high school harem edgelord nonsense.


Not having played the visual novel, the story isn’t coherent, it looks cool but you always feel like you missed a few episodes.


Prologue was a complete mess. Hopefully the actual Episodes turn out to be better. Lackluster animation tho + over the top German names.


Everytime someone says something in german the subtitles take up 2 lines instead of 1
