Sakura Taisen: Kanadegumi follows the young woman Neko's relationship with five attractive young men. The story takes place in Tokyo and centers on an imperial opera company named Kanadegumi. The manga launched in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume shōjo magazine last November as a two-chapter manga, but then became a regular series this past February.

Since its debut over 15 years ago, Sakura Wars has been a dating simulation/tactical role-playing game franchise aimed primarily at male gamers. The previous entries in the franchise followed the alternate-history adventures of several all-female mechanized task forces — that also perform musicals to maintain their top secret cover. The games' voice actresses reprised their roles in real-life stage musicals that lasted long after the main game series ended.
