Subaru Kujo of Sakura Taisen 5 is bisexual.When you talk to her early in the game, she'll say that she thinks that genders are meaningless. Add that to the fact that she's Bifauxnen and...

The fact that there was a demon war instead of World War I explains why there is alcohol in Sakura Wars VIn the real world, one of the factors that led to Prohibition was anti-German sentiment from World War I, that reduced the influence of brewers and saloon owners, who were heavily German. In the world of Sakura Wars, this should not have happened, and it's possible that as a result the US never had Prohibition. This is why the characters in Sakura Wars V in the US can drink alcohol legally, even though the game takes place during what would be Prohibition in our world. Hardsuits are an advanced and refined version of the Kohbu, for one thing.
Gemini Sunrise is an ancestor of Serah Farron.What can I say? They're so much alike.
There will be a new Sakura Wars game announced in 2016 to coincide with the franchise's 20th anniversary.There's no way Sega would just ignore one of its most popular Japanese franchises during its 20th anniversary.
