"This is actually an incredibly wonderful series as long as you watch it in the correct order so that you know what exactly is going on. The first OVA of this collection (Sakura Wars) can actually be skipped all together since it is based on the video game that was never released to the United States. Unless you are familar with this game, you will be completely lost with what is happening.The other two OVAs that are included with this set actually take place after the TV series and have no real central plot. Instead it is meant to expand on what you already know of the characters that you learned about in the TV series. It is possible to enjoy this series without seeing the TV series (I certainly did) but it may still be helpful to have some background info.If you really want to enjoy this box set, do yourself a favor and watch the 6 volume TV series first. Then skip the Sakura Wars OVA and just go straight into the other two which are actually worth watching. You'll get much more value for your money and a much more pleasurable viewing experience."

"The story of Sakura wars is well done however based on what is seen on the OVA 2 Discs there are missing parts of the story. Like what happen to Ayame Fujidea (The vice commander), when and under what conditions do orhime and reni join the flower division. Apparently there is another story that also takes place in Paris with a european team under oghami. Personally I think that ADV or someone should issue the remaining stories. However even with the hole the story is a good one and should be view by any one who likes a mecha story involving deamons."
