Storyline

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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

ninja meets mecha
23 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

now, this is a very cool title!! steam-powered robots and tanks in a feudal time along with aristocratic ninjas, a very interesting combination! not only is this a popular anime, but the action figures are a hot seller as well! the storyline is almost like a clan war-based theme and the animation is quite good. overall, sakura wars is a very good title to see.
