If you liked the Alien Defender Geo-Armor: Kishin Corps anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
War is hell for all that are involved. Swordsmen battle tanks, tanks battle snipers, snipers battle swordsmen - and many casualties take place. In the midst of the gunfights and the violence, lovers embrace and people contemplate while the body and artillery count piles up; thus is the reality of war.
Kishin Corps and First Squad have mainly one thing in common, both of them mess with WWII (for example they add some mechas here and there). If First Squad was too short for you, then you could check out Kishin Corps, on the other hand if you found KC lacking quality, then you should chcek FS.
In the near future, a small team of scientists have solved the world’s energy problems with the Shizuma Device. While the development of the device was hampered by a chilling disaster, the device is now viewed as the ideal power supply; it is clean, recyclable, and can be used to power every device imaginable. However, the terrorist group Big Fire has found a way to recreate the disaster that was triggered during the item’s development, in every Shizuma Device around the world. It is up to InterPol, a group of justice specialists with extraordinary powers, to stop this nefarious plan and save the world with the help of their trump card known as Giant Robo and the young Kusama Daisaku, the crux of the robot’s power.
The Mecha are lumbering giants with designs that harken back to an older time. Character desigsn, and the fact it is a team that works together helps too.
The character designs on the humans looks simple and fresh. The animation in both is fairly decent OAV 90's style.
