 The World War 2 Store: Sakura Wars TV - Intermission (Vol. 4)
So far in the story Sakura Wars has focused on characters, with an occasional battle to remind us that there is a real and dangerous evil out there beyond the walls of the Imperial Flower Combat Troop's headquarters.
The combat has become much more serious, and in the very first episode Sakura's sword, inherited from her father is broken as Aoi Satani the evil sorceror at the center of the demon invasion moves into center stage.
Of course, we're used to Sakura's bravery and commitment, but Iris has gone through some rapid development and now is becoming another key player in struggle to keep Tokyo free of demons.

 IGN: Sakura Wars Strikes the Dreamcast
Seeing as how Sakura Wars is probably the greatest series of games to never make their way stateside, most of you are probably unfamiliar with the exploits of Oogami Ichiro, Shinguji Sakura, and the rest of the Flower Branch.
Sakura Wars is certainly important to the Dreamcast's success; some have actually suggested that the series is one of the most important licenses to come out of the Saturn era - it's certainly been the most profitable license associated with a Sega machine in a long time.
Sakura Wars III, especially when coming off this series of Sakura awareness promotions, could very well be the title that stands next to Shenmue and pushes the Dreamcast into the homes of Japanese gamers.

 Review: Sakura Wars TV
As Sakura has now disrupted not only the rehearsal that was going on, but also their machines, she must overcome the rest of the Flower Division's dislike for her if she is to be welcomed as part of the group.
