Shin Ikki Tousen is based on the Shonengahosha-published manga series by Yuuji Shiozaki, which began in 2015 and has four volumes as of March 2020. The manga began in 2000 as the Wani Books-published Ikki Tousen, which inspired numerous anime series and OVAs from 2003 to 2019. 

Shin Ikki Tousen came about when the physical version of Wani Books’ Comic Gum magazine ceased in 2015, causing Ikki Tousen to move to Web Comic Gum, the website iteration of the magazine. The Shin Ikki Tousen title was used when the manga moved again to Shonengahosha’s Young King Ours.

Amazon describes Ikki Tousen: The Complete Series Box Set as:

When these girls fight – clothes won’t last!

Everyone wants a piece of the new girl in town, but nothing turns Kakufu on more than a brutal street fight. She shrugs off her shredded skirts and tattered tops with a flurry of busty badassery while fighting to unite seven rival schools. And with no shortage of enemies, why take on one guy when she can take on ten? In this adventure where teenage brawlers are guided by jewels infused with the spirits of ancient warriors, Kakufu is content to flash her panties and crack some skulls. But like any hero, she cannot escape her destiny – no matter how dark it may be.
