The official website for the television anime adaptation of Gakuen Basara, a high school spinoff project based on Capcom's Sengoku Basara game franchise, revealed character designs for the main characters on Friday. The cast members for the characters are reprising their roles from Sengoku Basara.

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 Kouji 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.
