I was thinking of putting this video up as the header for my Sakura Wars
piece, but couldn't find a good link until now. Also, I was being indecisive about whether or not it would torpedo the whole affair, so I let time run out on the LIPS choice.
It's an ad for Sakura Taisen 2
, featuring Segata Sanshiro
. The girl is Chisa Yokoyama, one of the voice cast. They all played in-character during the various live shows. Such courage!
Also, someone asked me about the whole "cannon-under-the-Arc-de-Triomphe" thing and whether or not it was real. Have some proof, in HD, even:
And, for a couple of people worried about culture shock, the translated OP/ED movies for Sakura Wars 5 Episode 0 ~Samurai Girl from the Wild West~
. It's an action-game prequel for the Sakura Wars
title you're getting.
