The six Blu-ray/DVD volumes for the Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Girls television anime series will ship between November 25, 2010 and April 27, 2011 with a six-part OVA series. Each volume will contain one part of the Hyakka Ryōran ~Otome Ureshi Hazukashi Shōshi no Chigiri~ video series, as well as a soundtrack-enhanced four-panel manga by Churuwo Kazahana, the creator of the online Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Girls manga. The first volume will also include the promotional videos, a collection of commercials, and the credit-less opening and ending animation footage.
The television anime adapts Akira Suzuki's novels about students who fight each other in an alternate version of modern-day Japan — one that is still ruled by a shogun. The anime will premiere in Japan this October, and Hobby Japan announced at Anime Expo in July that it will publish the novels in digital and print form in the United States.
