Well, I saw it just a few hours ago and must admit it was good - not great, not a masterpiece, but still well made story. Although I'm not a die-hard anime fan, this one looks interesting. Storyline revolves around a battle between secret Nazi and Soviet organizations which uses supernatural powers to win the war on Eastern front. Germans summon the spirit of an evil Teutonic knight and his minons, so the Soviets try to stop them with help of The First Squad - a group of teenagers with paranormal abilities. As for me, it sounds promising. Besides, story got a nice style anyway. If you're want to see some unusual story about the WWII, you gotta see that one.
