SynopsisHideyoshino is an average girl who always seems to find trouble wherever she goes. One day Hideyoshino visits a local shrine to pray in order to pass her upcoming test. However Hideyoshino sees a blue light coming from inside the Shrine and looks inside to find a mysterious person performing a magic spell. Hideyoshino in a stroke of bad luck trips on a small bell and crashes into the shrine prompting the stranger to catch her. However upon catching Hideyoshino the magic spell spirals out of control and sends Hideyoshino back in time to the Sengoku Era.
Hideyoshino then encounters Akechi Mitsuhide and Oda Nobunaga. But unlike what really happened during the era, Hideyoshino realizes that everyone in the world is female. She then decides to help Oda Nobunaga find the Crimson Armor which is said to allow the person wearing the armor to conquer all of Japan.
Characters & Voice Actors
For years Japan has blessed us with many version of their "Warring States Period" a.k.a Sengoku Era and their historical figures, directed to specific audiences. There's Sengoku Basara for all those manly types (and some girls), Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls for those who love the harem genre and last but not least, my personal favorite, Sengoku Rance, for all those closet perverts.. Not that I am one, I just like Alicesoft's gameplay style. Keeps your hand on the mouse instead of in your pants.
The story revolves around an alternate world where our main protagonist, Hideyoshino, is thrown into the "seemingly" Sengoku Era. But here's the twist. There are no guys. Yes you heard me right, nil. Oh by the way, Hideyoshino is a girl so yeah, NO GIGANTIC HAREM FOR HER!
"But how do there breed??"
-Storks and Bamboo shoots..
"But where does all those sandwiches go to?"
-They make it.... and eat it themselves.
"But if men aren't around, why are there still wars??"
"Why are you so sexist?"
-Because my mother never hugged me..
Anyways, Hideyoshi decides to help her newfound lord, Nobunaga Oda (Amazon girl version!) and Mitsuhide Akechi (Meh, who cares about her) collect all fragments of the "Crimson Armor" from the different warlords so that she could conquer the land. Cliche story? Yes but execution is what you least expected...
Do not expect a lot of full scale army battles. Do not expect any tactical brilliance. Do not expect good set of skills and swordsmanship. Do not expcet historical accuracy, at best it's just parodies. Heck, do not even expect fanservice! There's insignificant amounts of it compared to what we've seen in 2010. So what can you expect? A different perspective of the "Sengoku Era"
Yep, that's about it. Oh and a talking dog. How often do you see that?
All the characters are based on parodies of their historical counterparts. They possess distinctive features that are culturally famous for among those "Sengoku Era" fans.
Hideyoshino as the main lead isn't that memorable and interesting. The enjoyment would probably be deriving from her active and carefree spirit dealing with any situation thrown at her.
Nobunaga is potrayed as a brutish female with her strong sense of ideals and her lack of amazement when she first saw a cellphone. I mean, the historical Nobunga had a peculiar interest in technology. C'mon, what would get her to show a little bit of enthusiasm in technology? Show her an Ipad while streaming on Youtube, playing "Two Girls One Cup"
Yes I know what you're thinking and you're right.
That isn't a cup, that's a glass.. Ok fine...
Talking dog! Best character in the series! Cause he's a dog and he talks.. And he wears a cool helmet! That and he actually gets turn on by looking at naked human girls... Sigh.. can you believe that? Getting turned on by looking at another female species... I mean, do you get turn on by looking at a female dog?
So should you watch another this anime? The execution of the story is just childish and unappealing to a more intelligent audience. Humor is light and only based on the bumbling actions of our main female lead. Basically, it's one of those anime that you should not think about it too hard and just go along with the flow. It isn't that bad, once in a while, to just watch something that doesn't require any thinking or logic or sense or male characters. Yes, I know that most of you like to portray yourself as the male lead, yes I know you do.
Sengoku Otome was surprisingly good. I was pleased that there was not an abuse of ecchi elements, even though I generally don't mind ecchi too much.
The story was not terribly deep, nor was it absent. Basically, a clumsy middle school girl is accidentally transported back into the Sengoku era of Japan... except that there are no men. I never expected that the fanservice would be really over the top on this one mainly due to there being no guys in the anime to witness it... but in this ecchi, fanservice is definitely not the main focus. Anyways, the story was kind of typical, but it was interesting if you're looking for a good absent-minded time killer to watch.
I really liked the character designs for Sengoku Otome, because I tend to like anime with bright colors. When I saw the main picture showing most of the characters, the one who immediately stood out was Nobunaga. However, all the characters have nice, unique designs that made it easy to tell them apart. The background was nice too, and was fairly detailed.
The OP is a catchy rock song that is rather nice to listen to, and the ED is a calmer song that ends an episode nicely. The BGM wasn't bad, but I didn't notice it too much.
Not too much character development, except maybe a little for Mitsuhide. However, most of the characters had a unique personality. Hideyoshi is your typical clutz who isn't too bright and has too much energy. She was okay, but sometimes it seemed she was there just so there was someone to get in the way of the other characters. Nobunaga definitely had the most amusing personality. She has the ambition to gather all the pieces of the Crimson Armor and conquer the land... but she is rather eccentric and proud. She was definitely my favorite character in the show. Mitsuhide is nearly the opposite: calm, collected, and strategic. She is also pretty cool in her own way, but is a bit obsessed with Nobunaga which can be annoying at times. The only other character really worth mentioning is Ieyasu, but I can't really say much about her without spoilers.
I was bored when I decided to start this anime, and amazingly it eased my boredom. It was quite enjoyable and is great for an anime where you don't have to think a lot. It's not on my rewatch list, but I would recommend it to anyone who is ok with mild ecchi and little plot. read more
This one is a girl going to the sengoku period but nth much...
Oda Nobuna no Yabou is still the best!!
For both: Protagonist time travels back in time to an all-female Sengoku Era filled with busty babes and moe-blob. Now they get wrapped up in the warring states with battles amongst the typical Sengoku leaders.
Both have the same characters who are the female version of historical figures from the Sengoku era.
Both have the same main characters who found themselves in a parallel Sengoku period.
Both have the same historical, action and comedy genre.
Both have an eechi element in it.
Both main characters are of school age individuals.
In one anime the main character is a boy who uses his wits to either survive or to get around the parallel era he is in, while the other is a girl who is a bimbo and relies on her luck (too much) to get around her predicament.
The boy in the other anime is treated like crap, while the girl in the other anime is treated the same way her master treats her subjects.
The Oda in one anime acts the same way that a traditional Japanese would be, while the Oda in another anime looks more like a cosplayer and acts like guy.
Though boy in one anime is treated like shit he was able to be of big help to his master, while the girl somewhat finds herself being a damsel in distress and ends up being a burden to her master.
One anime has yuri and josei as it extra genre, while the other has romance, shoujo and shounen as their extra genre.
main character is from modern-day Japan but is suddenly sent back in time and becomes the Sengoku era's new Hideyoshi Toyotomi (aka "Monkey") and then develops a relationship with Nobunaga Oda
Time travel? Oh it's there. In both series, that's one of the themes along with action, drama, and comedy.
In both series, there is fan-service present that are often mixed in with comedy and action. And of course, historical themes comes into play as well with the backgrounds.
Both series' main protagonists has an amusing personality that is outgoing but at times lacks the initiative to do things.
Both series' supporting characters all have techniques in martial arts and swordsmanship.
Both historically based anime.. both Historical Characters(mostly) turn into girl
But Oda Nobuna no Yabou is a great anime hehehe coz it has a romance stuff
Same story about the main character going to another dimension and altering the history. not really the same feeling on watching it but still it`s very similar!!!
Sengoku Otome: Momoiro Paradox or Battle Girl: Time Paradox is also an anime about a girl time-traveling back to the warring-era and Oda Nobunaga. I enjoyed it very much. There is a lot of humour involved in the story.
Both have the same characters, albeit BASARA is male-centric while Otome (as the name states) is female-centric. The story lines are more or less the same though Otome includes comedy that is lacking in BASARA, and is more casual and light with some added hints of yuri.
For one, none of the series can be taken seriously and they both cover the same time period and have the same characters.
However, while Sengoku Basara are action series with comedy, Sengoku Otome are the opposite, it is comedy with action.
Also most of the characters have opposite personalities in comparison to each other and in Sengoku Otome the main cast are females.
So if you want to see an altarnative version of one of the series, the other would be a perfect choice for that.
Basically the exact same storyline with Sengoku Otome having a all woman cast instead.
almost has the same cast of characters taken from Japanese History
except in Sengoku Otome, they are all female characters.
Look at their titles. How can you not see the resemblance?
The only difference is sengoku BASARA is for REAL men, where as sengoku OTOME are for closet pervert guys
The same anime theme with alittle ecchi and female casts instead of male
