The Familiar of Zero (Zero no Tsukaima)
The Familiar of Zero (ゼロの使い魔 Zero no Tsukaima) is a fantasy and comedy-oriented series of Japanese light novels written by Noboru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka. It has been adapted as an anime series by J.C. Staff. The story features characters in a world of magic and fantasy, with the entrance of a male character, Saito Higara, who's from Earth. Saito soon discovers that some of the items he finds in this new world (majority including weaponry) are from Earth, and seeks to find the vortex that leads back into his world, Earth.
The following weapons were used in the anime The Familiar of Zero:
M72 LAW is the first weaponry shown in the anime that has come from the Earth. The people of the magical world calls it the "Stick of Destruction", and is shown to treat it as a sacred treasure; sealed in a case and put into a safe. Osmond, the head of the magical Tristain Academy, describes how he had found it on a man in a weird uniform, severely injured in the forest, and seen him use it to save Osmond from getting eaten by a dragon.
The operation of the M72 LAW is very well shown in the anime, as well as the fact that it is one-use-only.

Firing the M72. Look at that small back-blast!
Longueville, the enemy, is holding the M72 LAW. Notice how the trigger is back to it's original size again.

Longueville realizes that the launcher won't fire, being a one-use-only. Also note where her finger is. If it did fire, it could have blasted, or burned, her left index finger off.
The SIG-Sauer P226R is first seen wrapped in clothes being handed to Saito by Julio Chesaré. It is later revealed when Saito uses it to shoot Sheffield. It is discarded during Saito's battle with Joseph.

Saito holds the P226 on Joseph. Now notice the extremely HUGE barrel with the awkwardly tall slide.
Now the barrel is about 9mm in diameter. Notice how the slide does not have any markings
A very well shown scene of the P226. Note the length of the slide and the bulges in the grip to accommodate the double stack magazine, showing this is a P226 and not a P225 as previously thought.

In this scene, the riflings of Saito's P226 can be seen. Notice how tall the riflings are...

88mm Flak 18/36/37
88mm Flak 18/36/37 is seen when Saito and his friends are fighting Sheffield and her Square-class golem. It is unsure if it is Flak 18, 36, or 37. Professor Colbert calls it the "Great Spear".
