Movie Reviews

Tom Le | 03/23/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"pretty expensive for one episode. doesn't add anything to the plot, but its good to have closure on one of the fun characters. id say the best parts are the extras. you get to see how close knit the cast was. there is a real story behind that."
Best for knowledgable Sakura Wars fans
Joseph A. Admire | Manassas, VA USA | 03/02/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"By "knowledgable", I mean folks who have at least played the games (not that those are easy to get in North America!) or watched the OVA or (much preferably) TV series - the latter has MUCH more in the way of character and story background. In fact, I believe that the intended target audience for this movie was just that - the people in Japan who've played all the games so far and watched everything on TV and therefore are completely up to speed on who's who and what's what. I watched the new 5-DVD set of the TV series, which I've reviewed elsewhere, before I saw this movie, and in consequence I found the movie much more enjoyable. I do agree with the other reviewer's comment that the movie's ending was rather muddled; to me, it seemed rather tacked on. Also, there was no real effort to introduce the "new" characters outside the ones that would already be familiar to most American viewers, but again that's a side effect of the fact that the movie seems to have been intended for a more "knowledgable" audience than most anime fans in the U.S.

In short: If you're already a Sakura Wars fan and have watched the TV series, you'll probably enjoy this. Otherwise, you're better off watching the OVA or TV series first."

"The Imperial Fighting Troupe is called again to defend Tokyo against demons. However, this time, the Douglas-Stewart Company is selling a superior fighting machine that will revolutionze Japan's defense and make the Flower Division obsolete. However, the girls suspect something wrong when the members of their team begin to vanish!"
