posted on by Egan Loo
A television anime adaptation of Gakuen Basara, a high school spinoff project based on CAPCOM's Sengoku Basara game franchise, has been green-lit. The official website by the broadcaster TBS opened with the first teaser visual.
The Gakuen Basara school battle comedy parody reimagines the Warring States Era warriors of CAPCOM's action game franchise as rival students in a modern high school. Date Masamune and Sanada Yukimura battle to replace Toyotomi Hideyoshi as the next student council president. The project published several official comic anthologies between 2007 and last year.
Minoru Ohara (Glass Fleet, Lupin III: Episode 0 'First Contact') is directing the anime at Brain's Base, and Kōji Miura (Examurai Sengoku) is in charge of the series scripts. Haruhito Takada (Kaiji) is designing the characters. CAPCOM's Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Makoto Yamamoto are supervising from the original work.
The cast members who are reprising their roles from the games and the previous anime include:
- Kazuya Nakai as Date Masamune, the first-year ace of the baseball team
- Sōichiro Hoshi as Sanada Yukimura, the first-year ace of the soccer team
