Video game developer Sega announced a television anime adaptation for its Shin Sakura Taisen (Project Sakura Wars) game at the Tokyo Game Show on Friday. The anime series will air in 2020.

Synopsis
In 1930, two years after the events of So Long, My Love, the Great Demon War results in the annihilation of the Imperial, Paris and New York Combat Revues' Flower Divisions. With Earth at peace and the revues' actions becoming public, the World Combat Revue Organization is formed with several international divisions; a biennial international Combat Revue tournament has been organized.

Ten years later in 1940, the Imperial Japanese Navy captain Seijuro Kamiyama is assigned as the captain of the new Imperial Combat Revue's Flower Division in Tokyo, which consists of: Sakura Amamiya, a swordswoman and new recruit; Hatsuho Shinonome, a shrine maiden and the most popular actress; Anastasia Palma, a newly-transferred Greek actress; Azami Mochizuki, a ninja prodigy from the Mochizuki clan; and Clarissa "Clarise" Snowflake, a Luxembourgian noblewoman. The division once again faces a new demon invasion and participates in the upcoming tournament–while trying to keep their home at the Imperial Theater open. (Source: Wikipedia, edited)

Announcement


Sega launched the Sakura Taisen game franchise in 1996, which features role-playing and dating sim elements. The fifth game in the series, Sakura Taisen V: Saraba, Itoshiki Hito yo, was released in 2005. The sixth and forthcoming installment, Shin Sakura Taisen, serves as a soft reboot of the game series and is scheduled for a December 12 release in Japan, and Spring 2020 in North America.

Madhouse produced a 2000 television anime based on the first Sakura Taisen game. The Sakura Taisen: Katsudou Shashin anime film by Production I.G premiered in 2001. The game franchise also inspired multiple original video anime adaptations, the latest of which, Sakura Taisen: New York (Sakura Wars: New York), debuted in 2007.

Abysmal CG, this is going to be awful. Anime that adapt video games are terrible either way, but this hideous cheap ass looking CGI is the cherry on top.

That's the least of the anime's worries, take a look at that CG, it's really bad and cheap, in an anime with actual plays you don't want performances with such bad cg.


No, it's not bad and cheap. It's a pretty good CG which Sanzigen does great.

You''ve gotta be kidding me! This looks like the most complicated harem anime ever. Look at those descriptions for the generic harem girls. Lmao


This isn't a harem, this is based on a game. At least search before talking shit you don't know.

I don't know it and I don't care to know it. It's gonna be shit anyways.

Only the original Sakura Taisen cast is real Sakura Taisen.

The charas and key art don't even look too similar to the game and its material, I wonder if this is intentional? The in-game realtime animation is better than the crap they are showing here...

Is this a remake ?? Do I need to watch original one before this ??


It is a sequal to the first anime tv series set 10 years after it... i am not sure if u need to 100% see it but consdiering that some of the original cast will return i would guess so.

Someone who is better versed with this franchise should give a proper answer tough

I mean, they are showing up in the game too, just not as the central cast.

I've never played this game but ever since PXZ it just keeps appearing everywhere and at this point I'm just thinking, what the hell let me give it a try

but then I realize it's just another 3dcg uninspired bs and well ..

Something tells me the original fans will not appreciate this very much.

Wasn't there a manga of this at one point? I swear I recognize the black-haired girl, and the title of the game.

Tite Kubos (Bleach) character designs does not look good in 3DCG lol

Fairly good Staff but a pretty bland Key Visual in all honesty, might keep an eye on this for now.
