Following in the aftermath of a terrible Demon-Human war, turn of the century Japan is preparing a new fighting force in case the demons decide to return. A squadron of giant robots are built to be controlled by the spirit of the pilot, but it is discovered that the only people with sufficient spirit are young women. After recruiting a team of youths from around the world, the Japanese government decides to keep them a secret by disguising them as a theater troupe, thus requiring them to spend as much time memorizing Shakespeare as they do on military training.

Imagine a Buffy: the vampire Slayer type scenerio with Wild Wild West technology set in Industrial Japan with the characters from 'Allo 'Allo and you get Sakura wars!
Fans of Tenchi, Nadesico and Evangelion will enjoy this anime as it has the familiar stylings of all three. In my opinion Sakura looks like Yurika from Nadesico and the voice of one of the minor characters is the same seiyuu as the voice for Ryoko from Tenchi!
The ending of the original OAV is rushed after a slow start however in my opinion must anime conclusions are!
7 out of 10!!!
