Sakura Wars

Show Summary

A young woman, Sakura Shinguji, heads to the Imperial Capital with the ambition of defending the city from the demonic forces of the Black Sanctum Council, just like her father before her. However, things are not as she imagined. She must pilot a machine called a Kobu, learn how to perform on stage as an actor, and hope to get along with the other members of the Flower Division. Sakura sets out to accomplish all these goals – being a good friend and a good defender of the Capital, living up to the Shinguji name. Sakura Wars, or Sakura Taisen (サクラ大戦) in Japan, was originally a Strategy RPG/Dating Simulation game on the Sega Saturn in 1996. Following the initial success of the game, there were a number of sequels, as well as a television series, several OAV's, and a movie. This guide covers the TV Series only! For information on the first and second OVAs, go here General Note on Airdates: Sakura Wars airs on The Anime Network, but does not air on general cable TV. Thus, the airdates for this guide are those of its Japanese airing. When Sakura Wars (TV or OVA) airs on general cable, please feel free to let me know.

  • The story takes place in Japan of the 1920s... sort of. In this world, after the great demon war, humanity took to technological development, and steam technology reigns.

    The story was rather slow to get going and kind of vague, though the latter isn't necessarily a bad thing--I liked not having the whole history of the alternate timeline laid out early on. Don't expect a whole lot of action, though--we get one good fight in the first episode, but most of the second part centered around mastering a sword technique--interesting, but not action intensive, though things do perk up some by the end of the series. The first two episodes basically had two stories going on: the introduction and training of the group in Tokyo, which was pretty light hearted (though not quite comedy per se), and the story of Sakura's training, which was much more serious.moreless
