Anime Limited has announced that it has acquired the current anime series Gakuen Basara: Samurai High School for a future home release.
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.
The series is being currently simulcast on Crunchyroll, with eight episodes available at present.
As previously announced, 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.
