Inspirations and Derivative worksEdit

The main inspirations for this show were Devilman and Space Runaway Ideon, but obviously there are some non-anime influences like the works of Lovecraft, and Christian beliefs in general.

Pretty much everything made since this show is in some way a reaction to it, whether that be in terms of character design, plot concepts, or general influence.
