In the history we see the characters of the franchise, the feudal lords of the era of the belligerent states of Japan, being students in an institute of the modern era. Date Masamune and Sanada Yukimura are rivals fighting to replace Toyotomi Hideyoshi in his position as student council president. To date there are several official compilation volumes released under this premise, having reached the market first in 2007.

Minoru Ohara (Glass no Kantai) will direct the anime under Brain's Base, with Kouji Miura (Examurai Sengoku) in charge of the scripts. Haruhito Takada (Kaiji) designs the characters, while Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Makoto Yamamoto of Capcom will supervise the project.

The Capcom franchise already inspired three animated series for television, an animated film, a series of real image that had two compilation films and several adaptations to theater.
