Hana (Flower) is a orginal soundtrack for the Yoroiden Samurai Troopers OVA series Message. It was released on March 15, 1991 by King Records in Japan only.

Album Info Edit

This is the first of four CD's that came out while the Message OVA was released. These CD's form part of the memorial theme that was central to Message. The first half of the CD deals with the present and Suzunagi's past, and has a British (Meiji Era) tone to it. The second half deals with flashbacks to Kikoutei and Kuroi Kikoutei. There are two vocal tracks, one of the ending song (there is no opening song) and of an image song preformed during the fifth episode. The CD closes with the instrumental version of Midnight Party from the album Kimi wo Nemurasenai.

The CD booklet is a mini-collection of the illustrations done by Ken Mizuki for the Samurai Troopers series.
