Sakura Wars : Anime Game to TV Series to Motion Picture

Sakura Wars Anime originally started out as a Sega Saturn video game only released in Japan in 1996, but after much popularity the series expanded to other types of media including a Sakura Wars TV series, Manga, and a motion picture. The manga version, currently serialized in Kodansha’s Magazine Z, is also released in English by TOKYOPOP. The series is considered an eponymous dramatic anime adventure. This Anime series was also made as a Playstation 2 game back in 2000 and then re released in 2003.


The Sakura Wars story line takes place in an alternate 1920′s Tokyo, Paris, and eventually New York with an all female undercover secret task force. This all girl team is called the Imperial Assault Force — Flower Division and has sworn to defend the Imperial Capital Tokyo against evil. The all girl team is led by an Imperial Navy Ensign (Ichiro Ogami).
