The New Imperial Combat Revue

In 1930, the Great Demon War led to the annihilation of the original Revue's Flower Division and the world achieved peace. Sumire Kanzaki became the Imperial Theater's general manager in Ichiro Ogami's place, but in 1939, she sensed the demons' return, so she reorganized the Imperial Combat Revue. As with their previous incarnation, the Revue would rely on a new Flower Division to put on stage performances and fight the demons, but on a downsized scale because the Great Demon War significantly damaged their theater operations. In addition, the Revue is also a member of the World Luxuriant Opera Federation (WLOF).


By 1940, naval ensign Seijuro Kamiyama is selected to lead the Flower Division in their efforts to regain their former glory by participating in the third biennial World Combat Revue War tournament just as the demons finally launch an attack on Tokyo after ten years of peace.

    In General 

  • All for Nothing: Ten years of peace fighting the demons went down the drain as by the time Seijuro Kamiyama is appointed the Revue's commander in Sakura Wars (2019), it has become a dysfunctional farce. Claris, in particular, is devastated about how the current division's members aren't motivated enough. What's worse is that the Imperial Japanese Army is threatening to shut down the revue unless it brings in better results.
  • Critical Staffing Shortage: While the new Imperial Combat Revue's theater operations brings in a lot of customers, it is short of publicity staffers.
  • Glory Days: Before the Great Demon War, they were already famous as a theater/fighting troupe. By the time of Sakura Wars (2019), ten years have passed and the division seeks to regain their glory through recruiting new actresses/fighters as well as participating in the World Combat Revue War competitions.
  • Perpetual Poverty: Since the Great Demon War damaged the revue's theater operations, it has a much smaller budget and its theater operations have declined precipitously.
  • Still Wearing the Old Colors: They still wear the symbols used by the previous combat revue.
  • Won the War, Lost the Peace: Although the original members of the Flower Division eradicated the demons at the cost of their own lives, that threat didn't actually go away. The theater's smaller budget and lack of motivation from the new combat revue members didn't help matters either.
