-Less than 12 episodes
-Same animation style and color-pallette as Baccano!.
-Vomit inducing levels of graphic-violence, the kind necessary to portray the horror of the book. Something on the level of classic gorey 80's anime. Torsos flying over or into trenches, injured soldiers carrying their own intestines, severed limbs or sheets of skin, the injured horses, etc.
-Animate segments of visions, thought processes or halucinations, many of which could last up to 10 straight minutes. Paul envisioning the corpses getting back up and fighting like zombies would be a good example.
-Paul and the French soldier = epic episode.
-Paul's buddy farting in front of Himmelstos.
-Epic fucking manly tears throughout.
-BAWWWWWWW end with a side of "What have we learned?".
