Instead of coming with PR cards volume 4 game with "Deck Separators". There were 20 separators in total 1 for each girl. The art features on the separators is the same as that used on the card sleeves.
Play Mat PR Cards
2 UVS Senran Kagura play mats were released. 1 featuring Ikaruga and 1 featuring Yomi. The 2 play mats also came with 2 PR cards. One card features the same art as the play mats, the other their "Mask" costumes.
2 sets of cards were released with this set. I believe different cards were distributed depending on if you went to events in different parts of Tokyo. These 2 sets are unique in that they don't feature the normal Hanzo, Crimson, Gessen or New Hebijo girls. They instead feature the younger class members from Hanzo and New Hebijo.
Set of 6 Gessen cards. Again part of a tournements although I believe this one involved getting "points" and then using point to buy the cards. As well as the 5 character cards there is a 6th card support card featuring Asuka and Homura, I believe this card was given for attending the event.
As well as all of these Senran sets there were a couple of broader UVS PR sets.
These sets featured other series as well, for example Neptunia and Blaz Blue.
I am only including the Senran cards from these sets.
Unknown Date - Vol.1
Vol.1/C008 PR - Ikaruga Vol.1/C020 PR - Yagyu
Unknown Date - Vol.2
Vol.3/C008 PR - Murakumo
These last 2 cards I have the least information on and I have no idea how you got them.
The first card, I believe is given a "Vol.0" ID, is Lvl.0 and has a huge 2000 Attack and 2000 Defence.
It is the only group card in the series, featuring all 5 Hanzo girls.
The second is a Hibari card, I believe it may have been given out at the very first tournament.
Vol.0/C000 PR - Hanzo Group Vol.1/C026 - Hibari
These are all of the PR cards I know off. Unfortunately the information starts getting sketch towards the end as I do not have those cards and the UVS website that listed all the cards is long since dead.
Nice job on this list Hikage, this is very informative and useful.
I made an Excel spreadsheet with a list of all the PR cards I am aware of, along with details taken from the official site (Wayback machine archived version) and other places. Here is what I can add to your list based on that:
CG - Katsuragi Promo Set This was distributed as an appendix to the Japanese Card Game Magazine, Vol 8. The only unique card in this set is CG014 PR, the others are identical to the regular cards except for the "CG" and "PR" notation on the bottom-left corner of the cards as you said.
Approximate text translation: "[Shinobi Transformation] When this character is at the top of the character area, draw 1 card from the top of your deck."
CG - S009 PR Parallel This card ("Let's go to the sea!") was distributed as a limited appendix to Card Game Magazine, Vol 10. It is a parallel of the regular card and features the Hebijo girls instead of the Hanzo girls. It's slightly harder to find than the Vol 8 cards as the appendix was a limited edition. Photo
Text: "[Timing] Move to [Shinobi Gauge] immediately after applying this card's effect. [Rules] Both players choose 4 cards from either their [Red Gauge] or [Blue Gauge] (select only one). Return the selected cards to your deck. If there are 3 or fewer cards, return as many cards as possible. Shuffle the deck afterwards."
CG - S007 PR Parallel This card ("Shinobi Hot Spring Tour!") was distributed as a limited appendix to Card Game Magazine, Vol 11. It is a parallel of the regular card and features the Hanzo girls instead of the Hebijo girls. Again, it's slightly harder to find than the Vol 8 cards as the appendix was a limited edition.
Text: "[Attribute Restriction] Until your next turn, the Attack and Defense of both players' Character cards in the Character card area becomes 0. [Timing] At the start of your next turn, discard this card."
Vol 1-3 Booster Box Promos These were available in booster boxes, or they could also be had at pre-release events (Vol 1) or I believe official tournaments (Vol 2 and 3).
The text on them is the same as the Katsuragi CG character promo.
Play Mat PRs Approximate text for these is:
Masked versions: "[Transformation] When this character uses a [Slash] or [Defense] battle card, [AT + 100] [DF + 100] to that battle card. [True Character] This character's name is treated as "Ikaruga" / "Yomi"."
Mat designs: "[Torn 2] When this character is attacking, add [AT + 100] to this character's Attack if the opponent's Level is 3 or lower."
New Wave PRs The Vol 2 cards were available at Japanese official tournaments from June-July 2013.
The Vol 3 Gessen cards were only available as some kind of "point exchange prize" for the "Unlimited School Student Notebook".
The Vol 4 New Hebijo cards were a prize for attendees of the Spring 2014 "Unfes" event in Japan. ("Unfes" seems to be a play on Wonfes, presumably it is short for "Unlimited Festival"?)
The Vol 4 New Wave character cards (Fuma, Hijikata etc) were available at Japanese official tournaments June-July 2014. There were two sets available - one for the East and one for the West area. The East area contained Fuma, Hijikata, Ayame, Seimei and Muramasa. The West area had Souji, Chitose, Ibuki, Ashiya and Bashou.
Others Vol 0 C000 PR is a special promo card featuring the 5 Hanzo girls. This was available at the SKTCG pre-release event only, and is hard to come across.
Vol 1 C026 PR is a Hibari character card with a unique design. This was only given out at Japanese club meetings in July 2013. Also difficult to find. Text is the same as the Katsuragi CG PR card.
Vol 2 S001 PR "Green Scroll" is a support card featuring Asuka and Homura. This was only available as a bonus if you registered for the "Unlimited School" event in Japan only. Hard to find as such. Text: "[Use] Draw the corresponding number of cards in your damage area from the top of your deck. [Timing] Move to [Shinobi Gauge] immediately after use."
Vol 3 C008 PR is a Murakumo character card with a unique design. This was given out at Japanese official tournaments in October-November 2014. Text is the same as the Katsuragi CG PR card.
Vol 1 and 2 "midair" or "jumping pose" PR cards were available at Japanese official tournaments August-October 2013.
I think that's all I have for now, but if I come across any other information or something I've forgotten, I'll post an update.
Missing (2 cards): Vol.1 Tournament cards Ikaruga and Yagyu, looking at the above I would guess they were August-September 2014 tournament prizes?
Total: 110 PR cards?
Guesses/Estimations: Feb-May 2014 missing tournament block are possibly the "Notebook" and "Unfes" event rewards?
Personally I have 96/110 cards. So I think I am doing fairly well. I am missing the 13 Event cards and Ikaruga from the Ikaruga/Yagyu Vol.1 tournament set. And that seems to add up with my picture of my missing cards.
So can we reasonably say that there are 110 PR cards?
Also are you aware of any other merchandise? From what I can remember:
1 Red Card Binder/Folder 5 Deck Boxes (1 Hanzo, 1 Crimson, 1 Gessen, 1 New Hebijo and 1 Leaders) 5 Spares Boxes (1 Hanzo, 1 Crimson, 1 Gessen, 1 New Hebijo and 1 Leaders) 22 Sleeves (5 Hanzo Girls, 5 Crimson Girls, 5 Gessen Girls, 5 New Hebijo Girls, Daidouji and Rin) 20 Deck Dividers (5 Hanzo Girls, 5 Crimson Girls, 5 Gessen Girls, 5 New Hebijo Girls) 4 Life Counters (Hanzo, Crimson, Gessen and New Hebijo)
Personally I am missing from that the binder and 7 dividers Asuka, Hibari, Homura, Hikage, Mirai, Yumi and Shiki.
I have also seen some other play mats for the series but I do not know if they were official released play mats.

Sorry for the delay. I have gone through my collection today and have now managed to more or less finish compiling my list of the Senran Kagura Unlimited VS PR cards. Excluding the ones from the CG sets that are identical to those in the regular game, I believe there are exactly 90 PRs.
Thanks for the help in this Hikage. If you (or anyone else) spot any errors in this or can help with any missing info (currently lacking details on 2 sets), I will update accordingly and post the updated version.
In any case I hope this will be useful to anyone looking to collect all of these hard-to-find cards!

Ah, sorry! You are correct, there are 88 PR cards in total excluding the CG parallels. (I'd included a couple of extra header rows in my calculation, hence the mix-up)
I think the hardest ones to find are the pre-release card, the unique Hibari, Green Scroll, and the New Wave Gessen & New Hebijo promos. I only have one card from that list (a New Wave Ryouna) and am missing a few from the other sets, meaning I have 61/88 PR cards in all. Now to find the others
I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm very much interested in collecting Unlimited Senran Kagura series cards. I was reading through former posts where auction sites like Noppin and FromJapan have been recommended. I currently see around 10-20 cards on sale, but would like to know where/how I should get started. I looked through Chimera and all of the boosters are out-of-stock, but the trial decks seem available. Where would everyone suggest I start if I wanted to collect?
[Also... tried ordering a large number of cards on tcgjapan but it's a shame that the seller has been known to be a bit unreliable (didn't realize until I joined the forum).]
Any and all help would be much appreciated. Thank you ~
Hi! These are definitely pretty hard to get now, but they're very fun and rewarding to collect.
Getting the starter decks first would be a good idea, I'd recommend buying these while you still can as they are a great introduction to the game and each one includes a guaranteed rare card that can only be had from the starter deck. There is also a 1/6 chance for it to be signed. The places you mention are also good, cards don't come up very often on there (as the game has been out of print for some time) but it's worth taking a look to see what's available.
I have some spares available so I sent you a PM about those too. Thanks and happy collecting!
