"I'll show you the power of the hidden art of Nitten Ichi Ryu!"
—Ichiro Ogami

Ichiro Ogami (大神一郎 Ōgami Ichirō?) is the main protagonist of the first four entries of the Sakura Wars series. Even though he is supposedly to be the main character of the series, he plays a minor role in the anime and manga adaptations.


Ichiro was chosen to head the Hanagumi when he proved himself capable during a test of a Koubu prototype at sea.

Kayama was with him during that time, but eventually Ōgami was sent to work with the Hanagumi, as Kayama worked with the Tsukigumi. Originally an ensign, he was later promoted to lieutenant junior grade. Oogami was later given the Shintou-Mekkyaku, one of the four spiritual swords, by an injured Yoneda after he awoke from a coma. Later, he and Sakura came to possess the Shinken-Shirahadori and Koutou-Mukei spiritual swords to carry out the Ni-ken Ni-tou no Gi.

Crosspedia Entry[]

The leader of the Flower Division of the Imperial Assault Force, created to defend the Imperial Capital of Tokyo from the attacks of abhorrent demons. A direct and honest young man skilled in both the literary and martial arts, he also conceals a passionate and tenacious heart. While working at the Imperial Theatre as an admissions ticker puncher, he also led the successful defense against the attacking Hive of Darkness and Black Demon Society. He went on to study in Paris, where he also defeated more monsters, before returning to Japan and fighting off the threat of Okubu Nagayasu. It is his bringing together of the varied people under his command that has achieved such results. Bestowed the spirit sword "Shinto-Mekkyaku" by Commander Yoneda, Ichiro continues his endless battle against evil.


Ogami appears in the first trailer of the game alongside Sakura and other Sega characters. Partnered with Sakura, they both use their respective spiritual swords. He first appears with Sakura in Chapter 9: Justice Over Evil.

In Project X Zone 2, he first appears in Prologue 2: O Brother, Thou Must Not Die and reappears in Chapter 19: The Call of the Evening. He is paired with Erica from Sakura Wars 3 and he adds some new attacks to the mix using some of his teammates' weapons, including Glycine's halberd and Coquelicot's kitty bombs. His moves during his special are moves used during Sakura Wars 3's opening animation and it's name came from the last lyric of its opening theme.
