Group Rules

This is a group for fans of the franchise Sakura Taisen, or Sakura Wars as it's sometimes known in English. SakuTai is half dating sim half strategy game (in more ways than one!) and appears in all sorts of media (comics, movies, TV, OVA, video games). The group name comes from the main SakuTai opening theme.


- as of right now, there are no limitations on entries per day, but be polite and don't bombard the folders with your art.
- copies/traces are NOT acceptable! I will remove pics if I feel they are copies (direct or indirect), and any stolen work uploaded will lead to a warning, followed by a banning if problem persists.
- Artwork containing nudity is allowed... HOWEVER, the character in the picture must be 18+ and I will remove anything that is too sexual or if it has an underage character involved.
- stamps, wallpapers, etc that feature official artwork, screenshots, etc are not allowed
- No blimp/preggo artwork!

If you want to submit a pic but aren't sure if it's acceptable, please note me with a link and I will let you know.

Here's how the gallery works:

+ I will select any outstanding fan art or cosplay to go in this category.

Teito Hanagumi
+ Artwork featuring the Teikoku Kagekidan. It may also feature Oogami, Ayame, Kaede, or any other character from the first two games if they are with Sakura, Maria, Sumire, Iris, Kanna, Kohran, Orihime, or Reni. If they are by themselves, they need to go in the Side Characters gallery.

Paris Hanagumi
+ Artwork featuring the Paris Kagekidan. It may also feature Oogami, Mel, Ci, or any other character from the third game if they are with Erica, Glycine, Coquelicot, Lobelia, or Hanabi. If they are by themselves, they need to go in the Side Characters gallery.

New York Hoshigumi
+ Artwork featuring the New York Kagekidan. It may also feature Taiga, Sunnyside, Plum, Anri or any other character from the fifth game if they are with Gemini, Sagiitta, Rikaritta, Diana, Subaru, or Ratchet. If they are by themselves, they need to go in the Side Characters gallery.

Side Characters
+ A gallery for any character who appears in the SakuTai universe but is never considered a Kagekidan member. Oogami and Taiga solo pics should also go in this gallery.

Mix Groups
+ Anytime characters from different games/series are brought together, their pics should go in this folder. Pictures featuring SakuTai characters with unrelated characters should also go in here.

Fan Comics
+ Comics, b/w manga, or pics with word balloons should go in this folder.

+ I think this is self-explanatory, but all SakuTai cosplay pictures may go here.

Crafts, Models, Etc
+ For hand-painted figures or crafts or other artworks that are three-dimensional.

If you have a picture you would like to submit but are unsure of the group, please note me. I will also sometimes move pictures if I feel they have been submitted to the wrong folder.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I may change the rules and folders, but for now this is what I have.…

The website and Twitter account for Sakura Taisen has announced a brand-new game taking place in the capital (Teito, aka Tokyo) of Japan in the 29th Taisho year (which is... uh... 1930? Which is... uh... not really the Taisho Period anymore, haha). But I actually just realized for the first time ever they use a different character for the Taisho in the game and the Taisho in real life. How sad for me!

This isn't a side game, this is a full-fledged entry to the series. But considering this is 12 years after the very first game, we are probably dealing with an entirely new group of girls, and there may not be much crossover, which is a shame. Sakura will be in her thirties, and Iris in her twenties... ooh! I would love to see grown-up Iris, like the one she imagined she would look like in the first game.

Another thing worth mentioning is the new Sakura Taisen vocal album that was released. It features the first group as it is a pachinko/slot game soundtrack of sorts, but most tracks are vocal tracks with a really great group theme. The cover art is recycled Sakura art sadly, but all of the tracks are pretty great! Except maybe Iris's song, haha. Oh well. So look for that if you can buy CDs from Japan.

You can sample tracks here:…

Hello members of the Sakura Wars Fan Art division, I don't know who here all uses Amino, but there is a Sakura Wars Amino that could use an infusion of amazing SW fan art. On top of that, it'll be a great place to have SW based discussions, so let's make this community unite into a true Kagekidan.

Is there really?? I've never seen it before, I should look it up.

That'd be awesome. It's a little slow right now, but as they say, Rome wasn't built in a day.

I'm curious- has anyone ever thought of submitting Sakura as a character for Screwattack's Death Battle? I mean, it's one way to raise awareness of the Sakura Wars series.

You can submit sugestions here-…

For an opponent, I was thinking Houki Shinonono from Infinate Stratos. Kendo champion, ponytail, mech suit...she just seemed perfect to go up against our Samurai Showgirl.
Though, I also considered Lyn from Fire Emblem as a possible opponent for Sakura. Due to the grid based strategy battles, samurai sword, ponytail and even being voiced by the same actress (Wendee Lee voiced Lyn in Fire Emblem Heroes and Sakura in Sakura Wars the Movie and in So Long My Love)

I would love to see a Sakura Wars character in DB, but I'd have no clue who anyone would fight.
