The title of the anime gives an impression that it would be something like Sakura Wars and "Seto no Hanayome. However, based on the synopsis.. It definitely sounds like something else, something either odd or features lots of surprises and twists.

Oh! I just realize that it is in the form of a 2 hour long movie. Not expecting much from it..
