posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Crunchyroll began streaming the Samurai Warriors: Legend of the Sanada (Sengoku Musou SP: Sanada no Shou) anime special along with the subsequent Samurai Warriors (Sengoku Musou) television anime series on Sunday. The special first aired in Japan last March. CAPCOM then bundled it with the Special Anime Pack release of its Samurai Warriors 4 game in Japan and other countries.
The story revolves around the Sanada brothers in their youth. Nobuyuki and Yukimura swear to each other to protect the influential Sanada clan. However, thinking of how to best continue the Sanada clan, Yukimura makes a decision, and meets with Mitsunari Ishida and Naoe Kanetsugu at the location he arrived at. On the other hand, his elder brother Nobuyuki must worry about the selfish demands made by the Tokugawa clan.
The special and television anime series are based on KOEI Tecmo's Samurai Warriors (Sengoku Musou) series of action games, which allow players to play as historical characters during Japan's Warring States period between the 15th and 17th centuries.
