Sakura Wars is based off of a couple of old Sega games from the late 90's, early 2000's and originally came out from ADV in two high quality OVA's. Based in the early 1920's, the first OVA series consisted of four 30 min. episodes that revealed how Sakura Shinguji a masterful swordswoman with spiritual energy was recruited into the Imperial Floral Assault Unit. A secret unit of maidens tasked with protecting the world from demonic warriors using battle suits powered by their spiritual energy that could have come straight out of a Jules Verne novel. It made a good intro to the series. This was then followed by a second OVA series which consisted of six 30 min. episodes that were basically stand alone stories about the individual members. It was a great character study which I quite enjoyed but got criticized because the mechs were barely used and it had no resolution. Both of these OVA's have been out of print for over a decade.

However that's not the case with this 25 episode TV series which came out just after the OVA's in the early 2000's and which in one form or another has been consistently re-issued every few years first from ADV and then later by their successor Sentai. And is now being re-released yet again in their Sentai Selects budget/re-release label. While of TV quality animation rather than the OVA quality resolution; this TV series is more complete covering Sakura's arrival to a more or less complete ending.

It's a fun little 25 episode sci-fi action series in a 1920's world of steam powered everything with maidens from the karate champion Kanna Kirishima, sharpshooter Maria Tachibana, the child psychic Iris Chateaubriand, klutzy gadgeteer Ri Kohran, and the prima donna Sumire Kanzaki among others.

HASH(0xa18c57f8) out of 5 stars The essential Sakura Wars - watch this before watching the others! Feb. 28 2006
By Joseph A. Admire - Published on
Format: DVD
Anyone interested in Sakura Taisen (Sakura Wars) - whether a fan of the games or just interested in the anime - should definitely watch this 5-disc compilation of the entire 25-episode run of the TV series. Be aware, though, that the story told in the TV series is slightly but significantly different from that told in the OAV (and also from that told in the new manga version, which is now being published in English in the USA). I definitely recommend watching the TV series BEFORE watching "Sakura Wars: The Movie", because otherwise the latter won't make much sense to you at all and the TV series provides a tremendous amount of character development missing from the OVA. (Also, I strongly recommend watching the TV series and the movie both before watching "Sakura Taisen: Ecole de Paris", since that particular anime takes place in the timeframe between the series and the movie.)

Note also: the TV series has a lot of emotional heft to it and can get dark, almost somber in places, but I don't think it's much of a spoiler to say that everything works out in the end. HOW it works out, though, you'll just have to watch to find out! :)

P.S. On further thought, I wanted to put in a word here about the alternate-history background of this anime. Sakura Wars takes place in a timeline where steam appears to have become the dominant method of power generation and propulsion (right down to steam-powered telephones!!) and also where technology in this version of the 1920's is up to at least 1990's levels (computerlike machines and some form of virtual reality simulator are seen being used in several scenes, and there is obviously some kind of video technology as well). Also, socially and politically, the 1920's Japan of Sakura Wars seems to be a very different place from the 1920's Japan of our "real" time line - in fact, according to the new English translation of the manga, the characters for the Imperial era "Taisho" used in this series translate to "Broad Truth" in English, not "Great Truth" as in our actual history. Something to be aware of as you watch the show.

HASH(0xa1b9e3fc) out of 5 stars Lovable anime, excellent!! Dec 6 2007

I agree that before watching other Sakura Wars series collections, you must watch this original TV series first. Fujishima Kousuke sensei's anime is always wonderful and never disappoint anyone. Unlike AH! My Goddess, this story is about some evil spirits invading Japan, particularly in Tokyo, battles are more emphasized in Sakura War. Needless to say, it is exciting. In addition, the story also describes the daily lives of the characters. Humors, fantasy and excitment are combined perfectly.

this is my first official entry to the sakura wars series & its fun , worth the time & splended to watch

if known this anime for along time but never had the chance to get into nor the games but Project X Zone finally changed my mind so i get this lovley dvd set for starters

first of all i didicate myself into the lovley art of Kosuke Fujishima since i love the Tales of games as also i adore the anime series Your under arrest to death and a few month back i got into Oh My Godess so i knew what i was getting into

the show is wonderfull i enjoyed it & loved it now i want more out of sakura wars & hope in the future the other series gets localized .

a recomended starting point for starting watching this franchise
i have to say the cast are so lovable and colorful , from the natural beauty that is sakura , the lovely sumire ( i dig her hair style ) , iris the little munchkin , strong & bad ass maria , funny girl kana who i tought she was a guy at first glance , and last but not least brainy girl koran

its mainly the focus of the beautiful sakura to build her self up and try her best , while also enteracting with the other cast an many adventures , decisive batles , and also making thier on stage performences in a way for them to get better and stronger

i wish thier stage acts where extra features of the show they kinda look promising

art wise it is lovely , music is amazing at most of the time , just love the cast story is great as it tries build up the cast in its own fasion just wish iris got into the action battles more offten which are not brutal but enough to satisfy on what it offers .

HASH(0xa195afcc) out of 5 stars could be a lot better Oct. 23 2015
By combat addict - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This was just an okay anime. The robots were kind of dorkey and the story a little weak, but what I didn't like most was all the talking and screaming during the fighting. I mean how many criminals explain themselves to you before they try to kill you, and what's with all the screaming inside the robots, after all it's the robot doing the actual fighting. It seems they'd rather talk the enemy to death instead of just shooting them, and they should've put a lot more padding inside the robot to protect the operator so they wouldn't get knocked out everytime the robot got hit! This was definitely a girly fighting scene, because they worried more about their partners getting hurt than the enemy attacking them, so stupid! And what's the use of having a plan when no one wants to take orders?! Seems this wasn't a team fighting, more like every women for themselves.
