■ New Imperial Combat Revue Characters

Great Imperial Gekizou

Project Sakura Wars

A mechanical propaganda doll of the Great Imperial Theater. His nickname is “Gekizou-kun” (“Gekizou” is a play on “gekijou,” which means “theater). Seijuurou Kamiyama, who was appointed as the “Special Assignments Propaganda Department Director,” transforms into this mascot character. As he performs promotional activities and intelligence gathering, the number of customers to the Imperial Theater increases.

■ New London Combat Revue Characters

Arthur (voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki)
London Combat Revue: Knights of the Round Table Commander

Project Sakura Wars

The 18 year-old commander of the London Combat Revue: Knights of the Round Table. He is a knight of Great Britain born to a noble family of knights that has produced many counts and passed down the “Legendary Sword Excalibur.” His nickname “Arthur” is a title handed down in his family from generation to generation along with the Legendary Sword Excalibur. He honors the Knight’s Code of Chivalry and always plays fairly. While he is popular among the ladies due to his seriousness and gentlemanliness, his attitude becomes pretentious and aggressive once he switches on in battle.

Lancelot (voiced by Manami Numakura)

Project Sakura Wars

A 17 year-old member of the London Combat Revue: Knights of the Round Table. With her dauntless courage and belligerence, she is the commander of the London Combat Revue’s shock corps. She specializes in fierce sword skills with her dual swords, and calls herself the “Dark Knight” to match the dark clothes she wears in battle. She is energetic, bright, and cheerful, and never thinks about anything too deeply. She also has a self-taught air of roughness about her and a natural simple-mindedness, being the type to take action before thought.

The “Spiricle Fighter: Mugen” operated by Claris is characterized by the grimoire it carries on its back. It utilizes long-range magic attacks to mow down its enemies. Its special attack, “Arbitre d’enfer,” locks-on to a large number of enemies and showers them in magic bullets.
