With a new series coming up, the folks at Pony Canyon are looking to make some new coin off a number of older works. The distributor has set a new Sakura Wars OVA series Blu-ray box set. It’s scheduled to land on March 18th, 2020 priced at 35,000 yen. Only a couple of these projects have seen overseas/North American release and hopefully, this will inspire someone to re-acquire and bring them out in full and new glory.
The OVAs included are:
- – Sakura Wars OVA (4 eps)
- – Sakura Wars 2 OVA (6 eps)
- – Sakura Taisen: Sumire (1 eps)
- – Sakura Taisen: Ecole de Paris (3 eps)
- – Sakura Taisen: Le Nouveau Paris (3 eps)
- – Sakura Taisen: New York NY. (6 eps)
It looks like each OVA will get its own disc. Extras include audio commentaries where done previously.
General Concept: Sakura travels to the capital with aspirations of defending the city from the demonic forces of the Black Sanctum Council like her father before her. However, things are not as she imagined as in addition to using her great spiritual energy to pilot a mech called a Kobu, she must also perform on stage as an actor as The Imperial Flower Division’s cover is an art theater. Making a fool of herself and ruining a production gets her on everyone’s bad side and somehow she must learn to work with them as well as prevent the enemy from destroying several shrines which protect the city.
